FRIENDS is returning for a one-off TV special.

I think it’s a bad idea. The series was wonderful, appealing to generations of viewers. I loved it, my daughters love it (one even asked for the complete series for her 15th birthday). The characters are fixed into my mind as they were and I don’t really want an update.

I couldn’t even get my head around Matt LeBlanc on Top Gear being Joey.

Reunions like this are rarely a success. Cold Feet, with its now middle-aged characters, doesn’t grab my attention like the original series did.

The planned Friends episode will be unscripted, so it could be a complete disaster. It would be better to leave well alone and let us revel in our memories.
