Who asked for a Perfect Strangers reboot?
June 14th, 2021 under Bronson Pinchot, HBO Max. [ Comments: none ]

If I were a network head and I was asked, would you rather do a Perfect Strangers reboot or revival, I would say a revival. Well, HBO Max said reboot, according to Deadline.

They have opted to do one with Robin Thede and London Hughes as two half-sisters who didn’t know about each other until they inherit an apartment in Brooklyn.

That sounds nothing like the original. So why not say it is an original show than claiming to be a reboot? It isn’t. Unless the sister is a cousin from the Greek island of Mypos, then it is not a reboot.

Stop saying it is a reboot when it isn’t. HBO Max is extremely guilty of this.

Back to show, who else would rather watch Bronson Pinchot and Mark Linn-Baker reprise their roles than this crap.


Five things to expect from the Friends reunion
May 27th, 2021 under Friends (cast), HBO Max. [ Comments: 4 ]

For 17 years, Friends’ fans have been waiting to see their Friends together again. Today, it finally happened on HBO Max.

Along with Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, there were several guest appearances from people who appeared on the show and celebs who were fans of it. However, the two that interested me the most were the show’s creators, David Crane and Marta Kauffman. They gave a lot of interesting tidbits. In fact, their reveals were better than whatever the cast told us.

What did we learn from Friends: The Reunion. We learned a lot but their five things that really caught my interest.

1 – The executive producers told us who turned down Friends because they quit acting. Someone close to them convinced them to steal Lisa Kudrow from Mad About You. She was not the only one on another show at the time. One actor begged to be released from the show they were on, while the other one got the blessing from a studio exec to leave the pilot and join Friends. And then there was the one who shared a scene with the actor who was also up for their role on the sitcom.

2 – David Schwimmer really hated the monkey. It is obvious; he still holds resentment towards the actor who played the cute Marcel.

3 – The actors would do a huddle before every show. The one time they didn’t, LeBlanc got hurt. We get to see how he hurt himself and how the writers wrote his injury into the show.

4 – There was one moment that was only supposed to be a one-time joke. However, it turned into something that lasted throughout the series’ run. That is because the fans asked for it, and the producers listened to them.

5 – You can see Schwimmer’s face on Matt LeBlanc during bloopers. Who came up with that idea? Who do you think?

I think fans of the show are going to love this special. If you are not, like me, then you will be bored and remember how irritating some of them are.


The one where the Friends reunion gets a trailer
May 19th, 2021 under Friends (cast), HBO Max. [ Comments: none ]

HBO Max released the trailer for the Friends unscripted reunion, and I am sure it is going to make friends of the show very happy. They have been waiting 17 years to see them together again, and on May 27th, they will get their wish.

They are still going to be upset that it is unscripted, but I think they will still enjoy what they get. I mean, they get to see the Friends being friends.

And for everyone complaining about James Corden hosting the event. The reason why is the reunion is produced by the same man who produces The Late Late Show. Now, it makes sense why he is there. It doesn’t mean you have to like it, but it what it is.


Bill Maher misses his first show in 28 years after testing positive for COVID-19

Bill Maher has been on the air for 28 years, and he has never missed a scheduled episode until now. That is because the host of Real Time tested positive for COVID-19 even though he is vaccinated.

“Thanks to all wishing me to get well – hard to do since I feel perfectly fine, but I appreciate it,” he wrote. “Most upset about ending my streak going back to 1993 of never missing a Politically Incorrect or Real Time episode. Oh well, even Cal Ripken had to sit one out at some point.”

Even though he is asymptomatic, HBO canceled the episode as a precaution. “Real Time production has taken every precaution following COVID CDC guidelines. No other staff or crew members have tested positive at this time. The show will be rescheduled at a later date,” an HBO spokeswoman told Deadline.

I don’t even want to imagine what his first monologue back will be like. He probably will be even more skeptical about coronavirus which is something we do not need.


The one where the Friends reunion gets a premiere date

For almost a year and a half we have been hearing about the f*cking Friends reunion, and today we found out when it is finally going to start streaming. When? When? When? You asked. It will debut on May 27th. So that is two weeks or 14 days from today.

The press release also revealed one more detail about the unscripted reunion. They revealed who the guest stars are going to be. They are David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Lady Gaga, Elliott Gould, Kit Harington, Larry Hankin, Mindy Kaling, Thomas Lennon, Christina Pickles, Tom Selleck, James Michael Tyler, Maggie Wheeler, Reese Witherspoon and Malala Yousafzai.

I like the idea of bringing back the actors who guest-starred on the show, like Tom Selleck and Elliot Gould. However, I don’t like the celebrities who are fans. That is just wasted air time that could have been spent on Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer instead.

Although, I like that BTS is part of it because the K-Pop band learned to speak English for the show.

If you want to see the episodes that taught the band how to speak English, you can watch all 236 episodes on TBS from May 10th-June 24th during the hours of 10a-4p. Get your fix now while you can.
