Lisa Kudrow jokes about her son’s Friend’s response. Friends aired for 10 seasons from 1994 to 2004. Six New Yorkers discovering love and sorting out their lives get a second wind owing to syndication and streaming platforms. Generations of new fans are finding the pioneering series and relating to different portions of it, as proven by HBO Max’s recent reunion special.
Classic Friends episodes helped make the show popular with many new fans. However brief, many recurrent performers and special guests have said they’re best recognized for their time on Friends. For others, it’s the characters’ relationships and love entanglements. For others, it’s worth revisiting and questioning whether Ross and Rachel were on a hiatus.
Kudrow said her kid watched Friends while ill with COVID. The actress, who portrayed Phoebe Buffay, nearly sobbed since no one in her family enjoyed the show. She was unimpressed by his answers when she asked her 24-year-old son, Julian Murray Stern, additional questions. Here’s Kudrow’s quote.
“He called and said, ‘I watched the first two episodes. Yes, Mom. Thanks. Can I ask you some questions? Yes! I nearly cried. I thought my family didn’t enjoy that show. When we finished, he was 5, but he started watching when his buddies did.
” “It’s funny,” he remarked. They’re amusing. “No, you’re hilarious too,” he says. I’ve never wanted to tell my kid, ‘F— you!’ I thought but didn’t say. Don’t be demeaning! Fandom isn’t necessary. My work is optional.
Lisa Kudrow has met many young adults who have watched her work on Netflix and HBO Max. Her lone kid found it both amusing and annoying. The Emmy-nominated actress got pregnant with Julian while filming Friends. During season 4, Phoebe became a surrogate mother for her half-brother and had triplets. The poignant narrative highlighted Kudrow’s theatrical skills.
Maybe that’s why Kudrow’s son found “Friends” humorous. The sitcom is famous for iconic sequences and cultural artifacts, including Rachel’s hair and Phoebe’s famous song “Smelly Cat.” At its finest, the program was a constantly entertaining sitcom.
