We Don't Need a Friends Reunion

Thursday, May 27, 2021

 Why are we having a Friends reunion? Reunions are for marking big milestones and celebrating great shows that we miss. This is not a milestone year for the show. 27 since its debut, 17 since it ended, those are odd years to be celebrating something. But the biggest problem with this reunion: how can we miss Friends if it never went away?

It's been in syndication since before the show ended. It was obviously a big deal on Netflix when they spent $100 million for the rights to the show for a single year before it left and went to HBO Max. I get that it is people's comfort show, but uproar over it leaving when all you have to do is turn on TBS and just wait for the next marathon to start. 

For all of this hoopla over the show, no one's really talking about the quality of the show. I mean, it's fine. There are definitely way better comedy series, past and present, about friend groups that are miles above this one. I just don't get it.
