Lisa Kudrow Admits She Has Never Seen an Episode of ‘Friends’

Friends is the biggest and arguably, the most iconic show ever.

Everyone in the world has at some point seen an episode of Friends except for Lisa Kudrow, who brilliantly brought the quirky and nutty Phoebe Buffay to life. 

Kurdow made the shocking revelation during a mini-Friends reunion with Jennifer Aniston on Variety’s Actors on Actors issue.

You might wonder how someone so closely involved with the series managed to get away with living a life where she hasn’t watched the 90s cult classic series, but don’t worry, Kudrow has a reasonable and sweet explanation: she wants to do it with her friends! 

“I don’t watch the show. I’m still not watching it in the hopes that one day we sit down and watch them together,” she told Aniston, who was into the idea and responded, “I think it would be a lot of fun for us to do something like that.”

While she hasn’t seen herself bring the lovable Phoebs to life, she has given into the blooper reels, but honestly, who hasn’t? Blooper reels are the best!

 “I love stumbling on a Friends episode. This one time I was with Courteney, and we were trying to find something to reference, an old “Friends” thing,” Aniston said. “And then we stumbled on—there’s bloopers online—and we sat there at the computer like two nerds watching these bloopers laughing at ourselves.”

“I’ve done it too. I’ve done that, hours watching bloopers,” Kudrow admitted.

While Aniston, Kudrow and the rest of the Friends cast seem to be genuine friends now after all these years, when they were first cast, they didn’t meet until the initial table read, which is engrained in Aniston’s memory.

“You were wearing an appropriate Phoebe Buffay [outfit]—like a white linen, hippie shirt, and you had a bunch of seashells and necklaces on,” Aniston recalled. 

“And you had your hair pulled up in two little clips, and you had these little blond tendrils…so, so, so beautiful! And Courteney [Cox] had on a pink baby tee with a white trim.”

“Gee whiz! I was trying to get into the character,” Kudrow joked. 

While the mini-reunion isn’t exactly the HBO Max reunion fans have been hoping for, it does serve as a good intermediary as we await the official reunion special, which is set to start filming in August after being postponed by the thing that ruined all television productions of 2020 — coronavirus. 

Stay tuned for that, check out our list of favorite Friends episodes here, and get ready to binge-watch all summer long!

La Brea

Was ‘La Brea’ Renewed For Season 3?

La Brea Season 2 Midseason Premiere Recap Episode 9 and 10 Stampede Murder in the Clearing

La Brea fans, you have something to celebrate.

NBC has given an early season 3 renewal to the prehistoric sci-fi series. The network gave the green light right just before season 2 kicked off on Jan. 31, returning from hiatus with two back-to-back episodes. (Read our review!)

Per TVLine, La Brea will get six episodes in the third season with the possibility of scoring more down the line. And if no additional episodes are green-lit, six feels like a solid number that would be enough to provide a solid conclusion for dedicated fans.

The series averaged about 5.4 total weekly viewers, including DVR audiences, in its first season run, however, its midseason return fared rather poorly with 2.1 million and 2 million for both episodes, respectively. All of that could change once playback numbers are factored in proving that the drama was worth saving after all.

The series, which premiered in September 2021—and fills the sci-fi gap left behind by shows like Timeless and Debrisfollows a group of people who fall through a mysterious sinkhole in Los Angeles and find themselves transported to 10,000 B.C.

Big Sky

Will There Be a Season 4 of ‘Big Sky’?

Big Sky review Family Matters Season 2 Episode 17

Big Sky ended on a high note on Wed, Jan. 18, wrapping up a whirlwind season filled with murder, mystery, and deception.

And naturally, fans are already craving more, especially as each season of the series delves into a new storyline centered in Helena, Montana, and involving Dewell & Hoyt’s Cassie Dewell and Jenny Hoyt. 

As of now, ABC has not renewed Big Sky for a fourth season, and it may be months before we get any insight into the matter. 

In terms of ratings, the series kept steady with 2.4 million viewers and a 0.2 demo, which means ABC could go either way with their decision. 

The fact that they brought in the big guns like Reba McEntire and Jensen Ackles for this season likely means the network believes in the series—and it’s hard to argue with the dedicated fanbase that has stuck around through every twisted and over-the-top plot.

The third season wrapped up many lingering storylines, giving fans closure to the mystery plaguing the season, however, there’s always more to explore when it comes to the dynamics between the core characters. And something tells me, there’s no shortage of criminal activity in Helena.

While Cassie and Cormac finally made things official, fans were likely hoping to see a bit more romance for Jenny and Ackles’ Beau. The show has been toying with their chemistry, sparking a “will they or won’t they” debate, but when it finally came down to solidifying their relationship, they left it open-ended. While it may have been frustrating to fans, it’s likely the show’s hope that it’s enough to convince ABC to green light another season to allow them to explore these relationships further.

When TV Insider asked Ackles if he’d return for a fourth season, he explained, “I don’t know. They haven’t even picked up the show yet for Season 4, so I don’t know if anybody’s coming back for Season 4 yet. That’s above my pay grade.”

However, he added, “But if they do decide to pick up a Season 4 — which I would hope they would, I think the show’s really great, and I think it’s got a lot of story left to tell — I don’t know. They had me for one season. They were probably like, well, let’s just bring him in for one, and we’ll see how it goes, and then we’ll go from there. So they’re waiting to hear what happened with the show, and then they’ll probably talk to [showrunner] Elwood [Reid] and try to figure out what to do with the characters, those that are returning and those that they want to return.”

Seems promising! 

Once ABC gives the word—we’ll update this post accordingly. In the meantime, don’t be shy, read our review of the Big Sky Season 3 finale right here.

Why Is Taylor Kinney Leaving ‘Chicago Fire’?

Published

on

Shocking news Firehouse 51—Taylor Kinney is exiting Chicago Fire.

Deadline reported the news on Friday, Jan. 20, revealing that the actor, who anchors the show as Kelly Severide, will be taking a break from the series.

Kinney has been a staple on the Dick Wolf drama since its inception in 2012 and is a huge reason why the series has retained such a dedicated viewership. 

While an official reason was not provided, and a rep for the show did not offer a comment, sources close to production told the outlet that Kinney is taking a “leave of absence” to deal with a personal matter. No word on what the situation is. 

The cast and crew were reportedly informed of the leave right before the news broke, with the writer’s room likely having to rewrite scripts to accommodate the change.

It’s unclear whether this will be a permanent leave, nor is there any info about how he will be written out for now. 

Kinney has not addressed the news himself as of writing. 

This is the latest shocking exit in the #OneChicago world as Jesse Lee Soffer, who plays Jay Halstead on Chicago PD, exited earlier this season, while Brian Tee hung up his coat earlier this season on Chicago Med after portraying Ethan Choi since 2015.
