There ' s no word on how that would work exactly. Would it be the six actors reminiscing about their time on Friends ? Or would they play their characters and improvise their lines? An "unscripted Friends reunion special " is just going to be an interview/clip thing with the cast reflecting on the show, right?

Jennifer Aniston’s haircut on the television show Friends was so popular that it was simply called “The Rachel,” named after her character on the show, which premiered in 1994. It was the first time since Fawcett’s Charlie’s Angels look that a TV character made such waves (pun intended).

On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter announced that the original stars of Friends were in discussions to do a reunion special for HBO Max. While nothing's been confirmed, sources told THR that all six of the core cast members are "in talks to reunite" for the unscripted special, which gives new meaning to the reunion photo that Jennifer Aniston recently posted when she joined Instagram.

The civil servant was reported missing by Mrs Turner and she identified his remains through his wedding ring reportedly found in the 9ft-plus shark's stomach still on a finger attached to his severed hand.Mr Turner was swimming in a lagoon used by tourists deemed 'safe' because a coral reef separates it from the Indian Ocean.

Naturally, a lot of fans of the beloved '90s sitcom were very excited by the news.

Like, crying-tears-of-joy excited.

There's no word on how that would work exactly. Would it be the six actors reminiscing about their time on Friends? Or would they play their characters and improvise their lines? Because that sounds… not good. Five of them also already did the former during a tribute to director James Burrows in 2016 and it was… not good.

 

In an article titled "An unscripted Friends reunion would be a diabolical mess," Guardian culture critic Stuart Heritage did not mince his words when he explained why the entire idea seemed like a greedy disaster.

Ross , Rachel , Monica, Chandler , Phoebe and Joey all reunited for a two-hour special to be aired on NBC in February. Then, even more details about the reunion special were released. Instead of having the actors resume their well loved characters 12 years in the future, producers are envisioning

  Here's Why There's Already Backlash About the 'Friends' Reunion Special © Getty "The amount of money that Friends still generates is staggering, which means that the cast will be extraordinarily well compensated for their reunion," Heritage wrote. "And given that it's going to be an unscripted special, which essentially means they'll just clamber on to a stage and reminisce about Gunther for a while, it may very well qualify as the best paid afternoon of their entire lives."

Like others on social media, Heritage noted that the hit British TV show The Inbetweeners did a similar special on New Year's Day, which left fans feeling cheated. The entire cast looked "awkward and ill-prepared," he wrote, and "the host kept confusing the actors with the characters they played," given that an unscripted special is an uncomfortable limbo between TV and reality.

Specifically for Friends fans whose dreams of a reboot have repeatedly been shot down, this has all been quite a rollercoaster. In September, Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman told Rolling Stone that a reunion "could only disappoint" fans because the show was about "a time in your life when your friends are your family" and "it's not that time anymore."

Freddie Prinze Jr. says Tom Hanks was supposed to play Sandy on Friends

  Freddie Prinze Jr. says Tom Hanks was supposed to play Sandy on Friends Freddie Prinze Jr. says Tom Hanks was supposed to play Sandy on FriendsAudiences met Sandy in the 200th episode of the long-running sitcom titled “The One With the Male Nanny,” in which Prinze played the titular character with a somewhat unorthodox job. He comes into the lives of Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) and Ross (David Schwimmer) as the on-again/off-again couple search for a nanny for their baby daughter, Emma. Ross doesn’t approve of Sandy the “manny,” taking issue with the fact that a man is so sensitive. Ross ends up firing the caregiver, but only after Sandy manages to help him get more in touch with his own emotions.

Why , 12 years after the series ended, are some people still so thirsty for a Friends reunion ?

More recently, however, she said on Ellen that while she was still against a reboot, the whole cast would "love for there to be something," and that they were working on what that something would be.

After all, even scripted revivals haven't been well-received in the past. From Fuller House to Arrested Development to Gilmore Girls, fan favorites have returned to the small screen only to let audiences down.

  Here's Why There's Already Backlash About the 'Friends' Reunion Special © Getty And let's be honest with ourselves: Do we need to potentially see Ross and Rachel going on another "break"? Would the fact that Joey can't seem to act, hold down a relationship, or adult in general still be cute now that he's in his 50s? It may be realistic, sure, but—when it comes to our favorite shows—a reminder that no one told you life was going to be this way is not exactly what we're looking for in terms of TV escapism.

Twitter won't be removing inactive accounts after backlash over profiles of dead users .
Social networking site Twitter initially said it would be wiping accounts that hadn't been accessed within the past six months. The cleanup was set to happen Dec. 11.On the surface, it was a good idea because the purge would free up coveted usernames that were held up by inactive users. Typically the only way to get a username from someone is through a trademark case.The proposed move by Twitter also spotlighted the fact that there's no way to memorialize deceased users' accounts.
