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.

Many People Prefer to Watch TV with their Dogs Instead of their Family, a New Study Finds
Watching a show without your dog can be “ruff.”
A new report by Rover.com found that as Americans increased their TV and streaming habits amid the pandemic, they have done so with a furry friend by their side.
Per the report, 57% of dog parents admitted to waiting for their dog to get into the room before watching a show.
Now, that isn’t entirely surprising because if you are a dog owner, you know dogs are great watching buddies… unless you have a dog like mine who barks at any animal on the screen. That makes things a bit more difficult, but still proves that he’s attentive!
The report found that 78% of Americans said they watch TV with their dogs very often or always.
Surprisingly, dogs were ranked #1 when asked who people prefer to chill out and watch TV with, with 40% of parents saying they’d choose their dog over a partner, friends, or even kids. And that’s because a majority of pet parents believe their pups are actively watching or reacting to what’s happening on the screen. (See my point above about my dog barking at animals on the screen!)
To make the binge-watching experience that much better for their pets, 70% have admitted to accommodating their pup by allowing them on the couch, giving them blankets, and even moving over so the dog is comfortable.
60% of pet parents even believe their dog has a favorite TV show, which would explain why 80% of dog parents admit to leaving their TV on for dogs when they’re not home.
The most popular genres? Comedy and action, which makes sense – after a long day of lounging and taking walks, Fido needs a good laugh or to get invested in a dramatic car chase!
During such uncertain times, there’s definitely comfort in knowing that you always have a TV buddy by your side!
And let’s be honest… is there anything your dog isn’t doing with you these days?
Netflix Renews Spanish Drama ‘Elite’ for Fifth Season Ahead of Season 4 Premiere, Adds News Cast Members
We’ve got some elite news!
Spanish drama Elite has been renewed for a fifth season at Netflix!
The news isn’t all that shocking considering the drama, set in the ritzy private school of Las Encinas in Spain, is one of the streamer’s best performing Spanish originals.
Not only is the cast incredible, the first few seasons were hinged around an intoxicating murder mystery and plenty of steamy love scenes.
The renewal comes ahead of the fourth season, which currently doesn’t have a premiere date. In 2020, filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and an outbreak on set.
It’s possible the series will return in the spring/summer of 2021.
The upcoming season will see a handful of familiar faces including Samu (Itzan Escamilla), Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), and Ander (Aron Piper) as they were held back due to their shenanigans. The drama will also welcome new students Manu Ríos , Carla Díaz , Martina Cariddi and Pol Granch to shake things up.
Deadline also reports that the fifth season has added Argentinan actress Valentina Zenere (Soy Luna) and Brazilan actor André Lamoglia (Juacas) to its cast.
