As any fan of the show.. a show that was a part of our lives for so long and had a great impact and created unbreakable bonds and connections with the characters... I was waiting for this for so long but I was a litt disappointed by this episode. The only reason I was so happy watching it is that they made us happy for more than 10 years and even until now, so it's ok if we watch a couple of hours of them being happy (if they were).
I was honestly expecting an episode after 17 years to show us like what they were doing with their lives and how they are now or something like that.. a scripted episode was gonna be a loooot better than just a talk show.
1. I thought thr host was not the best choice. He is nkt related to the show whatsoever with overly exaggerated reactions.
2. The stars they brought into the show were irrelevant (although I love them all) lol David Beckham, Kit Harrington, Cindy Crawford, etc... but they were here for no reason.
3. They missed many of the actors (important ones) like Mike, Ben, Suzan, etc... but again maybe they tried but the others couldn't... Who knows.
Although I LOVE her, but Jennifer Anniston seemed to be over reacting and trying to catch the spotlight all the time. Her reactions and gestures did not feel anything close to genuineness. Second to her was Courtney Cox. Maybe the Botox and the Fillers got in my way of judgement also lol.
Lisa Kudrow and Mat leBlanc were for me the most Authentic and sencere.. both also aged naturally and no annoying needle effect like Jen and CC
David Schwimmer was also a bit natural and not over reacting like Jennifer and Courtney were.
Mathew Perry looked tired.. his interaction was so limited and his engagement and throwing jokes was minimal. I really hope he's ok but he just didn't feel very comfortable. He's one of my favorite characters. I hope he's alright.
5. Lastly, the nostalgia I felt there and the reminiscent state of mind they put us at was worth it and worth watching for sure. I mean I'd definitely rather watch the show again than repeat this one.. but it was an overall good experience.
What I really remember now since watching it yesterday is Phoebe's famous "MY EYES MY EYES" that was hilarious to watch it again.. Ross redoing his lines as if it was still running.. and the moment that Courtney Cox said we will never be in the same room again in 15 years made everyone weeeeep like babies. It was very touching moment.
Thank you FRIENDS!! And Goodbye!
