The one with the reunion.

We couldn’t be any more excited to be reuniting with our Friends for the upcoming unscripted special.

After a lot of back-and-forth and negotiations, all six members of the cast have signed of for the reunion, which will air exclusively on HBO MAX, according to TV Line. 

The cast — Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer — will reunite in the original soundstage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank California for the special. Hopefully, they’ll be on the orange couch!

They will also be joined by original series EP’s Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman, and David Crane.

“Guess you could call this the one where they all got back together — we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa, and Matthew for an HBO Max special that will be programmed alongside the entire Friends library,” Kevin Reilly, CCO of HBO Max (and president of TBS, TNT, and truTV), said in statement. “I became aware of Friends when it was in the very early stages of development and then had the opportunity to work on the series many years later and have delighted in seeing it catch on with viewers generation after generation. It taps into an era when friends – and audiences – gathered together in real time, and we think this reunion special will capture that spirit, uniting original and new fans.”

It’s important to note this is not a revival or reboot, but if we all wish hard enough, maybe it’s the first-step to something bigger? Those involved with the serious previously turned down the idea claiming a revival would only “disappoint.” And why ruin something great, right?

Plus, we have the cast on Instagram where they’re all still friends and have been hanging out, sharing photos, and breaking the Internet.

However, this will be the first time they’re all together on-screen since the show’s end in 2004.

While the show has been off-air for years, generations are still discovering the series and becoming fans.

When Netflix pulled Friends off their streaming service this January, fans riled and it caused a spike in DVD purchases of the seasons. The series will head to HBO MAX.

Jennifer Aniston teased the reunion posting a photo of the cast on Instagram with the caption: “it’s happening.”

The special is set for May!

This MTV Board Game Is Here to Test Your Musical Knowledge

This MTV Board Game Is Here to Test Your Musical Knowledge

If you’re patiently waiting for the MTV VMAs to air on August 30, we have something that might make the time pass faster and give you something to do with friends and family during quarantine.

Big Potato’s brand-new game for music lovers called “MTV, The Throwback Music Party Game” is here to test your musical knowledge. 

“Switch over to a music party game for adults and teens that’s filled with all the biggest hits from the ’80s, ’90s and ’00s. It’s time for a blast from the past, specially made for the MTV generation,” the game description reads. 

In order to play, you must break up into to separate teams and get ready to go through your whole musical catalog! 

To win the game, you have to be the first team to collect all the awards from the eight categories: The Brits, Award-Winning Videos, Best of Unplugged, Pop Anthems, Hip Hop Hits, Headbangers, Teenage Angst, and Queens of MTV.

There are a few rounds including the “quick-fire buzzer round,” which requires one member from each team to face off head-to-head as they try to think of a song that fits the description of their specific category in 15-seconds.

The first person to run out of time loses this round, giving the winning team an advantage into the Artist Round.

There’s also an “artist round,” that requires your team to guess three songs in 30 seconds. You can give clues using one word, speaking the lyrics, or belting out the song at full volume. 

The game is suitable for all ages, but I think those who grew up watching MTV, Total Request Live, and all the award shows will strike gold! 

If you want your MTV, the game retails for $20 at Target, but you have to wait a bit because it’s currently “sold out.”

You’re Going to Want These Festive ‘Elf’ Coffee Creamers When the Holidays Roll Around

Elf Inspired Coffee Creamer Coming to Sweeten the Holidays

If you think it’s too soon to talk about Christmas in July, you’re right. But how am I not supposed to talk about Christmas when International Delight just announced that’s its preparing to unleash the best new item for the holiday season: Elf-inspired coffee creamer!

The Instagram account @candyhunting gave followers a sneak peak at the new creamer. 

The Elf packaging envelops three different flavors.

The yellowish bottle will feature the new flavor, caramel waffle cookie. 

Seasonal favorite peppermint mocha will be available in the red bottle. 

And lastly, frosted sugar cookie will be at your disposable in the green bottle.

“These are already starting to hit shelves, so be on the lookout,” Candy Hunting wrote in the caption of the post: “Huge thanks to International Delight’s PR group for sending the creamers!”

You know it’s serious when we haven’t even passed Halloween and yet people are scavenging for holiday coffee creamers to add to their iced coffee. 

You would think that since the flavors are inspired by the 2003 hit film, the flavors would be a bit more on-par with Buddy’s taste buds. 

One comment even pointed out the huge oversight on the company’s part writing: “What an opportunity for maple syrup and they didn’t take it!” 

While it makes sense, I doubt the flavor would go over too well with the general public. Though, no judgement if you’re into that sorta thing.

Another user referenced a classic line in the film with the comment: “I wonder if these make the world’s best cup of coffee.” 

Which one do you want to try eventually when the holiday season rolls around?

And…. is it too early to curl up on the couch and watch Elf? Asking for a friend, obviously.

Parks and Recreation Named Most Overrated Show in the United States

Are you over Parks and Recreation? Do you find yourself telling your friends that you think it’s overrated? Well, you’re not alone! 

Reviews.org looked at the most overrated shows in every state and found that was nominated the most times in a total of eight states! Sorry, Leslie Knope. 

If you want to know which states you need to blacklist for ever even thinking about offending Jim O’Heir, it’s Colorado, Kansas,  Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, and Rhode Island.

Now, simply asking people “is it overrated” feels like it would prompt a ton of nods and heck yes’s, but it’s still fun to see what America disagrees (or agrees) on. Plus, the publication notes the study was conducted with a 95% level of confidence, and numbers don’t lie! 

58% of people said Rick and Morty was overrated. 

Women felt Game of Thrones was overrated while men leaned towards Friends being overrated, and though we love both shows, we kind of get it. 

The second most overrated show in America was The Simpsons, and you can thank Idaho, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Utah, and West Virginia for that. 

Here’s the full breakdown by state:

3. The Big Bang Theory in Delaware, Iowa, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Vermont, Wisconsin. 

4.  The Walking Dead in Alabama, Alaska, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Texas.

5.  Rick and Morty in Arizona, Arkansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana,  Nevada, Wyoming.

6.  Game of Thrones in Florida, Kentucky, New York, North Carolina, Tennessee.

7.  Friends in Georgia, Indiana, South Dakota, Washington.

8.  The Office in Louisiana,  Michigan, Pennsylvania, Virginia.

9.  Breaking Bad in South Carolina 

South Carolina, what gives? Don’t make us call Walter White. 

What shows do you think are overrated? Which ones would you add to the list? Sound off in the comments below!
