Top 3 Thoughts of the Day
To the two of you who read this (hi mom): thought I’d start writing these thoughts of the day posts again!
1. For my music and TV class, I’m writing a paper on SNL’s musical sketches. This means watching Lazy Sunday on repeat because it’s good research, ok
2. Public Service Announcement: R. Kelly’s “I’m a Flirt” is on sale for $0.69 on iTunes, so get on that.
3. I’ve heard these rumors about a Friends reunion season and I don’t like it. Yes, I am still considering them rumors even though NBC has allegedly confirmed it because no major industry news outlet has reported on it yet. Elite Daily and Starmedia.us seem a little iffy…
Disclaimer: Friends is the one show that I consider my favorite. I know every line. I’ve seen every episode many times over. I know most of the episode titles. In my life, Friends is an institution, something that has most definitely shaped who I am today (including teaching me things that I probably shouldn’t have known at the age of 10 — the perks of being a kid without cable).
And for those reasons, I am not in favor of a Friends reunion. In the later seasons, it was not nearly as witty and creative and amazing as it had been, and time would not improve that. The actors are no longer these characters, they have moved on for better or for worse. Reunion shows (and movies, I see you Growing Pains) are NEVER as good as the first time around. I challenge you to prove me wrong.
