They still have it.
Just finished watching the reunion and my god, why was I on the verge of tears from the very start?! I was like Jennifer holding the tissue the entire episode!
I properly loved the reunion. It was the perfect blend of nostalgia and genuine humour and a true celebration of the show’s enduring legacy.
The reviews for it have been so tepid, which doesn’t make sense to me. There’s been so much commentary on Courtney and Jennifer’s faces being pumped with Botox which feels like such a dated read. Surely, we’ve moved on as a society now from being catty towards women who have surgery or whatever? Like, worry about your own life!!
The Gaga cameo was fun. Bieber made no sense being there but it is what it is. It’s a real testament to just how enigmatic all 6 of them are together that I really wasn’t bothered by Corden being there? The power that they have!!
I know news articles talked about Matthew’s slurring speech, but I didn’t notice it at all? It just seemed like he had veneers put in and was adjusting to them?
Overall, super happy with the reunion and high key can’t wait for Jennifer to be back on my screen for season 2 of The Morning Show!
Yea, the number of "I'm so glad Lisa has aged naturally and gracefully and is therefore morally superior to those two other desperate hags" is really something. All three women look fantastic.
Yeah it felt like I was reading Perez Hilton bullshit when I read the initial reviews and saw so many men just moan and groan about Jennifer and Courtney’s faces. They all looked fire to be honest. God David has gotten hotter with age?! Also, those old school photos of Matt Le Blanc will be living rent free in my mind until further notice!
I was so hoping they were going to watch the Phoebe/bagpipes one.
The way Matt LeBlanc was my first wank...
and could still get it.
I think David looks amazing. He really has aged like a fine wine.
Or the 'they don't know we know they know we know' one.
I watched this again the other day, but skipping through the international fans segment, Beckham, and the runway, and it made it far better. I only kept Reese, Mindy and Kit (swoon), and the Smelly Cat bit, because you don't skip legends.
I feel like they had so many missed opportunities though; they could have had them watch the first episode together or at least the first scenes, bringing back other guest stars. Imagine having all three Green sisters together for the first time, or having Lisa and Paul Rudd together again would have been sweet. I don't know, I feel like it left me wanting more.
This is exactly what I did. I saw Ben Winston say that more people were invited but couldn't attend for different reasons. Kit was also irrelevant to a Friends reunion to be honest. This was (James Corden's) Friends Reunion.
This also could have been like, 5 hour-long episodes.
Do you ever watch an episode that you haven’t seen in years and years and years?
The One With The Ballroom is that one for me right now.
Ross dating a student is not a good look.
That trope was/is far too common in entertainment too!
The old school photos of Matt LeBlanc.... soaked.
More Corden... but this is cute
The Chandler and Monica secret was such an electrifying force through the first half of Season 5, wasn’t it? Everything feels so heightened and exciting because of it. The One Where Everybody Finds Out is a masterpiece.
Aaaaand he starts singing.
