NBC just taped “Must See TV: A Tribute to James Burrows,” and you know what that means: the Friends reunion! The network announced a few weeks ago that five of the six friends would be reuniting for a TV special celebrating legendary TV director James Burrows. Unfortunately, Matthew Perry was unable to attend because of prior commitments for a play in London. But five out of six isn’t bad—we’ll take it.
The special doesn’t air until Sunday, February 21st, but we already have a sneak peek. The photo comes to us from, of all people, Kaley Cuoco. The cast of The Big Bang Theory was also involved in the tribute, and the two casts joined forces for one amazing pic.
Along with the photo, Cuoco wrote, “Ummm NIGHT MADE. Can’t breathe #friends meets #bbt @bigbangtheory_cbs I died and went to heaven.”
We spy Matt LeBlanc, Simon Helberg, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox looking better than ever! We can’t wait to see what the evening has in store for us.
Seeing the friends together again, it feels like nothing has changed. They don’t look a day older than their Season 10 selves! Well, maybe Matt LeBlanc’s hair is a little grayer, but it totally works for him. We’re definitely missing Matthew Perry—it just isn’t Friends without him—but we’ve been promised that he’ll be involved in the special too, via pre-taped video.
This pic gives us an idea… How about a Friends/Big Bang Theory crossover episode? We could bring back David the Scientist Guy to befriend Sheldon and Leonard, and create one super episode that involves both worlds. And James Burrows could direct, of course!
