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

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.
