Here's something interesting from the world of popular '90s shows: Jennifer Aniston has finally hinted that a Friends reunion might happen. On Wednesday's episode of Ellen, guest cohost Aniston confessed to Ellen DeGeneres that she misses working with her Friends co-stars, and that the recent sketch she filmed with Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry gave her a nostalgic taste for what it would be like to do a full-blown reunion show.
Could you BE more excited about this news? The best part is that we have video of the sketch, which aired on Ellen, to view in order to get a sneak peek at what a Friends reunion might be like!
And it's ... it's ... um ... okay, remember the episode when Ross played the keyboard and everyone tried to pretend they liked it but they were secretly dying inside? Yeah. That.
Here's the clip that Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Matthew Perry did for Ellen. The idea is that Aniston's looking for some show hosting advice from Perry, only she mistakes him for David Schwimmer, and it turns out that Perry and Cox are sleeping together, and Cox thinks Aniston is Lisa Kudrow, and ... yeesh, just watch:
Maybe it's just me, but wow, I found that spectacularly un-funny. The jokes are lame, the characters are nothing like they used to be (save for Perry's "Eight IN the morning" line), and their appearance is sort of a tragic reminder that death is coming for us all.
Except for Aniston, who's obviously bathing in the blood of virgins each night. Seriously, her refusal to age is getting downright eerie.
During the show, Ellen pressed Aniston to officially announce a Friends reunion. She didn't quite go there, but she did say this:
Doing that little bit with Matty and Court yesterday was ... we were very nostalgic and miss working together. We miss each other, and it's a great thing to go back to your family like that. Also, [I] know that people will love it.
I really, really loved Friends back in the day, but personally, I think it's a terrible idea to try and re-create the magic 20 years later. If this sketch is any indication of what it would be like to revisit Central Perk, this is basically how I think a reunion show would turn out:
What did you think of the sketch? Would you like to see a Friends reunion?
