OH. MY. GOD.
Do not blink. DO NOT BLINK because it will be over before your mind is able to comprehend it…but not before you have failed miserably in fighting back the tears. It starts, it shines and then it is gone in no time. Like a beautiful comet, once in a lifetime.
That, my friends, is the best possible way I can put forward my feelings after watching the trailer of ‘Friends: The Reunion’. It’s a 2 minute long trailer but boy does it bring back memories!
Time touches everyone and the same goes for Matthew Perry (Chandler), Matt LeBlanc (Joey), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe) and David Schwimmer (Ross). They all have aged as they reunite back on the sets of their legendary, marvelous, breathtaking, beautiful (you get the drift) 10 season long sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
A former producer of Aniston had told her that the show was not going to make her a star…well sir, wherever you are, could you be any more wrong?
As you watch the trailer, released last night, you will feel a rush of emotions taking over you because while watching this 2 minute video of clips of the original cast reuniting & reminiscing, the entire series is bound to flash before your eyes! And why wont it considering that after more than a decade & a half, the cast is back recreating & discussing some of the most iconic moments from the show…just in a different way!
From playing the epic “how well you know each other” quiz to debating whether Ross & Rachel were really on a break (Matt LeBlanc has some opinions on this) to discussing behind the scenes events to appearance of original series guest stars like Tom Selleck (Richard) & Maggie Wheeler (Janice) to new ones like James Corden interviewing the cast, this trailer is full of moments which will make you cross off days till the 27th! But my favourite part from the trailer has to be Lisa Kudrow screaming “My eyes! My eyes!”…literally took me back to that epic moment in “The One Where Everybody Finds Out’!
While it has been made clear that The Reunion is not a “new” episode per se, rather one of reminiscences & interviews, we cannot wait too see the cast back together again!
I would like to end by offering my sincerest apologies because this trailer talk simply does not do justice to the supreme legacy of the Mother of all sitcoms – F.R.I.E.N.D.S
Honestly, I could write 18 pages on it, front and back (I bet you didn’t see that coming) but I will make do with this blog post even though no one told me life was gonna be this way!
Anyway, ‘Friends: The Reunion’ will air on HBO Max on 27th May but unfortunately no announcement has been made yet with regard to when & where it will air in India. Just like you, we are hoping for an official announcement soon.
