Review: Whatever you were expecting, the reunion show, long asked-for and finally arriving 17 years (yikes!) after Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe and Joey walked out the door for the very last time, certainly lived up to it, and maybe even exceeded it. I have to admit that I, personally, was utterly sold from the first moment that Ross Geller walked on to the remade set. Waves of fondness. Constant smile. Not sure what’s happened to me. No one told me life was going to be this way. Friends: The Reunion is equal doses of sentiment and saccharine, hitting all the required marks of a television reunion. It has laughter, it has tears.
Verdict: Worth the Popcorn
