I'm sure you know that tonight's episode of Friends will be the last one. I'm also sure that more than a few of you will cry tonight around 9:53pm Eastern/8:53pm Central. Don't forget, it's all about Friends tonight on NBC. A one hour clip show airs first.
Will Ross and Rachel end up together? Probably. How could they not? If they don't, it'll likely be perceived as a worse send-off than Seinfeld was (Personally, I rather liked how Seinfeld ended. The last scene made complete sense, but that's another post). As for Monica and Chandler, what's their storyline? I haven't watched the last few episodes. Aren't they adopting some blondie's kid? And buying a house? Well, moving out of that apartment makes sense. That will represent more of an ending than anything else.
What about Phoebe? Does anyone care? And Joey, NBC hopes you'll care, but I really can't see a Joey Tribiani spin-off working ratings magic.
On a side note, I can not friggin' wait until the new season of The O. C.
Back to Friends. Here's a good article about the last episode. It basically says that Friends isn't so much a sitcom as a funny soap opera. And know you, kinda makes sense. Read the article and think about it...
Here's my tribute to the ending of Friends. It's a spoof I wrote a few months ago that never got produced. Enjoy.
THE FINAL FRIENDS
Concept: A promo spot for the final episode of Friends
Thursday on the final episode of Friends.
(*Joey, Phoebe, Chandler, Monica, Rachel and Ross are hanging out at a coffee shop.*)
I can't believe it's over.
Could it BE any more over?
6 careers come to an end...
Oh My God! David is now the breadwinner!
RACHEL: (*mockingly weighing their husband choices*)
David... Brad... David... Brad... Oh yeah, that was a better choice.
Get ready to say good-bye...
You guys, what are we going to do?
JOEY: (*eating cake*)
Well, they gave me a spin off...
(*All 5 eye Joey jealousy*)
(*They attack Joey and beat him down*)
Be there for the big send off...
ROSS: (*Kicking Joey*)
You were in Ed?!?! How the F*** did you get a spin off?
Could you BE any lamer? At least, I kissed Selma Hayak!
(*They all end up on top of Joey, wrestling him down.)*
The Final Friends... It's over... It's finally over... except in syndication...
ALL: (*They stop beating up Joey and look up*)
That's right! I'm still the breadwinner!
RACHEL: (*Standing up*)
Oh, that'll last longer than any Joey spin-off...
Don't forget all the DVD sales.
Could we BE any more overexposed?
ROSS: (*Looks around*)
Where's Emma? And Ben?
*Cut to Friends End page*
The Final Friends... Dear God, please let it end...
