Starring with most prominent actors like Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudro, Mathew Perry, and Matt LeBlanc was a series called ‘Friends’ and is still loved by millions. The show still holds its place in the heart of young people despite it being off air for quite a long time. The series has a massive influence and with HBO announcing their reunion almost after 10 years made fans just count down the hours!
Today on ZEE5, the reunion finally took place and let me tell you that, it was the most alluring reunion ever and the best we could have asked for. The reunion took place in a form of an interview conducted by Jamed Corden. We see the cast sitting in the famous fountain location where the theme song is recorded. They basically recalled their experience on the show, how they were casted and what they felt during the filming of the episodes. Along with this, some funny and emotional incidents were shared as well. I believe, It was more about the cast rather than the characters of the show. This gave some juicy insights to the inner details! We get to know that Aniston and Schwimmer liked each other but nothing happened between them. Side characters were present as well! Watching BTS, Malala Yousafzai, Lady Gaga was so fun!
One moment which took my heart away was when Phoebe was singing the iconic song ‘Smelly Cat’ with Lady Gaga, it secured a special place in my heart. My favorite character being Monica because she always took care of everyone in the group. She cooked good food for them, she listened to them and offered good advice; she basically was the mother of the group – a member the group couldn’t do without and hence, she was the glue that held the group together.
Final thoughts, the reunion can be encapsulated in one word ‘marvelous’. All the feelings that were attached to the show electrified my body again and seeing the characters talk with such a free-spirit almost after decades really had my eyes rolling down tears! I say, if you have not watched it, go and watch it right now!! It will surely make you go down the lane of nostalgia and reminiscence!!
