Jennifer Aniston is no Wonder Woman
January 11th, 2020 under Friends (cast), Gal Gadot. [ Comments: none ]

For 12 years, Jennifer Aniston was the face of Smartwater, but the company has decided to go in a different direction. A wonderful one, you can say. That is because Gal Gadot will now be promoting its products, which include four new flavors. They are Cucumber Lime, Strawberry Blackberry, Pineapple Kiwi, and Watermelon Mint. According to AdAge will be rolling out later this year.

I don’t know about you, but I will be happy to see Aniston hocking one less product on our TVs. Is it just me or does it seem like she does that more than she does acting?


A Definitive List of the Best Friends Characters.
December 1st, 2019 under Friends (cast). [ Comments: none ]

Friends is now 25 years old. That’s right, folks, the iconic sitcom has been around for a quarter of a century! During its 10-season run, Friends was among the world’s most popular shows and a full-on pop culture phenom. If anything, the popularity of the series has increased since it ended in 2004.

Proof of that has come from Netflix, which is reportedly paying $100 million to keep Friends on its platform through 2020. You read it right, $100 million for a series that ended 15 years ago! Many fans have moved on, but when their watching other shows, checking online to claim the Sugarhouse casino offer, or talking on social media, their thoughts are never far away from the gang at Central Perk.

As fans pine for a Friends reunion special, we decided to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the show by ranking the best characters. Yes, we get it, everyone has their favorite Friend and you will almost certainly disagree with our picks, but here goes.

6. Rachel

Sure, let’s start with a very controversial choice. Alongside Ross, Rachel was arguably the underpinning of the show, especially in the first three seasons. In terms of dramatic interest, Jennifer Aniston’s character scores highly. However, she is only moderately likeable if we really think about it and was certainly surpassed in terms of fun. Yes, Rachel has many laugh-out-loud moments, but she was possibly the least consistently funny of the Friends main cast.

5. Joey

Probably another controversially low ranking. Joey was often hilariously funny, although his nice-but-dim persona could also occasionally slip into being plain annoying. For every wonderful “stupid” moment from Joey, there is a moment where you just can’t believe his foolish nature. Many fans were also stunned by the decision to make Joey have a relationship with Rachel. This was a flaw on the part of the writers, which wasted Matt Le Blanc’s character in the final three seasons by making him a whiny and pining stalker of Rachel.

4. Monica

Monica’s ridiculousness was almost solely centered on her compulsive nature. Sometimes it would work and be very funny, while other times Monica’s purpose on Friends seemed to be “the annoying one”. While Courtney Cox’ Monica was not the funniest Friend, she was the most loyal and perhaps the one to go through the most interesting arc through the series, including the growth as she struggled to become a mother.

3. Ross

If this was a list of which Friend found themselves in the funniest situations, Ross would probably win. At his best, Ross was hilarious and arguably the best Friend for pure comedic moments. However, he was never effortless funny like the other characters and Ross’ moments usually came at his own expense. Ross also loses out because through the series he made numerous questionable decisions that make us doubt his status as a nice guy.

2. Phoebe

Phoebe is something of the Friends all-rounder. She is likeable, had meaty dramatic storylines, and was very funny. Add to that mix her quirkiness and you were left with the most unique character on the show. Indeed, Phoebe would probably be number one on this list if she was not left on the sidelines in so many episodes. After creating a unique character, the Friends writers often did not know what to do with her.

1.       Chandler

And the title of best Friends main cast character goes to Chandler. Let’s start with funny; it is widely accepted Matthew Perry’s character is the funniest on the show. Heck, even the name Chandler Bing is low-key hilarious. Simply put, Chandler was the king of witty banter and one-liners. So many times, he served as the provider of the punchline in a scene. As Friends matured, he even because dramatically significant, including the development of his often-touching romance with Monica.



Jennifer Aniston gives Reese Witherspoon the silent treatment
November 13th, 2019 under Friends (cast), Reese Witherspoon/Ryan Phillippe. [ Comments: none ]
Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are starring in Apple TV’s biggest series The Morning Show and their characters hate each other. Looks like that feeling is the same when the cameras are not rolling. At least in this video that Witherspoon shared. Then again if I were her Friends’ older sister, I too would not talk to her. You know because this joke is so totally corny, but not corny enough for me not to post.


The one where we might get a Friends unscripted reunion special
November 12th, 2019 under Friends (cast). [ Comments: none ]

Jennifer Aniston has been teasing that there is something Friends related in the works with all six friends and now we know what it is. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that they are in talks with the sitcom’s creators to do an unscripted unscripted reunion for HBOMax.

Since this is not even a done deal, we don’t know any more about this. However, if Netflix was willing to throw Warner Bros $100 million to keep the series on the streaming site for the year, WB should be willing to pay them what they want for the one-night-only event.

Would you watch?


Matthew Perry looking good
November 8th, 2019 under Courteney Cox, Friends (cast), Matthew Perry. [ Comments: 2 ]

Courteney Cox hung out with her TV husband Matthew Perry and we got this sweet photo proving, to me, that Monica and Chandler would still be together today unlike Rachel and Ross.

Now, let’s talk about how good Perry is looking these days after his very scary health scare over 4 years ago. Someone give him a talk show already because he is one of the naturally funniest people in Hollywood.

BTW all these shared photos from the cast of Friends getting together makes me think something is up. What? Only time will tell.
