Does this mean we’re STILL on a break?
With the highly anticipated Friends reunion coming to HBO Max next month, we are seeing details beginning to drip out on what can expect, or NOT. David Schwimmer, who played Ross announced last week that the cast will not be in character for the reunion.
While I understand why that makes sense, I wonder if this reunion is nothing more than a vehicle for Time-Warner to promote their version of Disney +, HBO Max.
Will my brand be improved if I add a plus, or max at the end of Jaybeau? How about Jaybeau-X as in Xtra?
For me, the reunion that WORKED was the Seinfeld season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, where Larry David convinced the entire cast of Seinfeld to do a reunion, so he could win his wife back. It was a brilliant show within-a-show, where the Seinfeld actors played themselves, making a Seinfeld.
So for us Friends fans that feel DE Friended, here’s a clip of the Curb-Seinfeld season.
Let’s call it a Jaybeau X (Xtra)
