They said they’ll be there for you, and pretty soon, they’ll only be a click away. Netflix announced it’ll start streaming all 236 episodes from the sitcom’s 10 seasons starting January 1, 2015. That’s roughly 83 hours. I know how I’ll be nursing my New Years Eve hangover ;) Sure, I have all the DVDs, but this is far more convenient. What can I say? I’m a lazy bitch ;)

The internet streaming service shared the awesome news with a video featuring The Rembrandts singing the comedy’s theme song. Naturally, Gunther makes an appearance in the clip, serving java as he’s done throughout the series’ run.

As if Friends being available whenever I want wasn’t fantastic enough, fans will get a chance to check out the “lost” episodes where Joey (Matt LeBlanc) and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) “became a thing.” Who else is excited?

Check out the video announcement below, along with Warner Bros’ recent clip celebrating 236 seconds of the show and NBC’s look back at the sitcom before the series finale aired. Enjoy.

Over the weekend, Colbie Caillat surprised Friends fans checking out the Central Perk pop up coffee shop in New York. The temporary attraction was erected to celebrate the NBC sitcom’s 20th anniversary. Caillat wasn’t just there to partake in some caffeine but did an impromptu homage to Phoebe Buffay.

The 29-year-old singer covered one of the character’s most iconic songs, “Smelly Cat.” All that was missing was a wind machine blowing Caillat’s hair. Colbie should really consider releasing a novelty LP covering all of Phoebe’s original material. It would kick ass and give Regina Phalange a run for her money.

Check out her cover below, along with Phoebe’s hilarious “Smelly Cat” music video.

Just hours after Warner Bros announced its plans to open a Central Perk pop-up coffee shop in New York City to celebrate the sitcom premiere’s 20th anniversary, a mini Friends reunion took place on late night television. Kimmel brought together Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow for a segment on his talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The ladies reprised their iconic roles to recite some Friends fan fiction. To make things even more authentic, Kimmel recreated the kitchen from Monica and Rachel’s apartment which reportedly cost $80,000. Jimmy also participated, playing a more lecherous version of Ross for the skit.

For the most part, the girls were good sports. Aniston drew the line when it came to putting on a wig styled after her infamous ‘Rachel‘ haircut. Watch all the action below.

Up until now if you wanted to visit Central Perk, you’d have to take the Warner Bros backlot tour. The former Friends set is crammed into one random corner for tourists to take photo ops. This Fall, the fictional coffee shop comes to life in New York City.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Friends premiere, Warner Bros. TV is teaming up with coffee brand Eight O’Clock Coffee to launch a full-functioning pop-up coffee shop. It’ll be located at 199 Lafayette Street on the corner of Broome Street in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood. It’s slated to open on September 17 and close on October 18.

With exception to Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer, all the former Friends have headlined television comebacks since the NBC classic sitcom. If Schwimmer’s new show gets picked up by ABC, Aniston will the lone wolf.

TV Guide reports that Schwimmer inked a deal with the alphabet network to star in Irreversible. The potential comedy is based on the Israeli No. 1 hit series Bilti Hafich. The US adaptation will be a single-camera show instead of one filmed in front of a studio audience.

First and foremost, Happy Thanksgiving to all our US readers. Hope you’re not eating too much turkey today. Something I can never accomplish. I tend to overindulge big time during the holiday season.

To celebrate turkey day, I thought I’d rank Friends‘ Thanksgiving episodes. Their holiday-themed shows were typically their best and most anticipated of the season. Til this day, I still enjoy watching the classic NBC sitcom. Check out how I ranked the episodes below. To refresh your memory, I added a memorable scene from each. Enjoy!

Chandler Bing Heads To Cougar Town

Reunited and it feels so good (AGAIN). For all you Friends fans pining for a reunion special or movie, here’s something to tide you over for what will possibly never happen. As much as I want a full-fledged reunion, I don’t think that will ever come to fruition.

Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry are reuniting once more. Since the iconic comedy, the two have appeared together to promote Jennifer Aniston’s co-hosting gig on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and also on Perry’s now-canceled NBC sitcom, Go On. Matthew is now returning the favor for his former TV wife and stopping by the fifth season of Cougar Town.

Go On creator Scott Silveri, who also worked on Friends, stated that “there were no trades” between his show and Cougar Town. “We just sent them some wine. I know they like that over there,” Silveri joked at the time, adding that “it was really fun to see the two of them together.”
