29 day challenge: friends, day 28: in which I discuss what I’d like to see next …

Every time I see a post about a Friends revival, this is pretty much my response:

And I’m saying this as a fan of the show.

Friends was very much a TV show for its time, which is fine, but I really don’t want to find out what happened over the last almost twenty years since it went off-air. What would it add to the conversation? What would be the point, other than providing us with that tingly nostalgia feeling (or revulsion, if you’re one of the many people I know that loathe the series)? I’d rather see the actors on new projects than return to characters that were ruined by the end of the show (except Phoebe – do not argue with me on this).

Very few revival shows have that same magic, anyway. The Will & Grace reboot wasn’t nearly as enjoyable as the original (how it got renewed for a total of three seasons is beyond me), and even though I haaaaaaated Full House, I can honestly say that, Fuller House? That much worse, and I didn’t think that was possible.

So let’s leave Friends in the annals of history and our DVD collections (or apparently on HBO Max). I don’t want to see anything else.
