Who Has The Remote? Is Relieved That The Friends Reunion Is Just Another Rumor

WhoHasTheRemote.com recently caught wind of a rumor that NBC was planning a revival of the popular television series Friends. Following a recent report on E! Online that confirmed the rumor to be false, Who Has The Remote? explains why a reunion of one of its favorite series wouldn’t work.

Who Has The Remote? had mixed feelings when rumors flew of a possible Friends reunion show. Speculation of the revival spread quickly across the Internet, but according to E! Online, the rumors are false. NBC admits that they have tossed the idea around in the past, but there has been “no forward motion.” Revival shows always seem like a great idea to fans, but they often end up disappointing viewers. WhoHasTheRemote.com gives its reasons why a Friends reunion wouldn’t work.

In the case of Friends, it seems like everything has been done. Oftentimes, a series ends because there really isn’t anywhere else the writers can go with it. A follow-up show might describe what the friends have been up to over the last ten years, but Who Has The Remote? would like to imagine them as the happy, loving group they were at the end of the series.

The show finished its tenth season with the six friends getting happy endings. Chandler and Monica adopted twins and moved to the suburbs. Ross and Rachel, who had a baby together in season 8, ended up together once and for all. Phoebe married Mike, and Joey remained the happy-go-lucky bachelor he’d been throughout the series. Everything seemed perfect.

Granted, there are fans who would like to know details of the characters’ lives since that last episode, but there is always the chance that they won’t like some of the answers. A Very Brady Christmas (1988) is one such example. Though it ends happily, it is painful to watch. Most of the characters harbor some secret or insecurity that causes unnecessary tension.

WhoHasTheRemote.com would rather not see the cast of Friends in that predicament. The 2004 ending saw the group deciding to go for one last cup of coffee in exactly the same place fans met them in 1994. Who Has The Remote? believes that it was the perfect wrap-up.

Though the series had an extremely successful ten-year run and continues to thrive in syndication on satellite tv packages, a lot of fans want to remember their favorite friends just as they left them in 2004.

Who Has The Remote? is relieved after rumors of a Friends reunion were quashed by NBC this week. The show’s ending suited its characters perfectly and wrapped everything up nicely.
