These days more than ever, the dominant line of thought amongst both TV fans and producers themselves is that it's best to go out on top. Shows have shorter seasons and usually tap out somewhere around seven (if they're lucky enough to control their own fate) all in the name of quality control. As the sentiment goes, it's better to leave them wanting more than to limp to finish line after everyone has stopped caring.
Welp, Matthew Perry and Lisa Kudrow disagree. Last month on CNN (with Perry covering for Piers Morgan), Chandler Bing and Phoebe Buffay reminisced on their old job and expressed deep regret in going along with the decision to conclude Friends at season 10, episode 236 (numbers few shows make it to), citing awesome hours and the fun family vibes on set. Kudrow said: "If it was up to us ... I would keep going. I figure there probably would've come a time anyway when someone would've said, 'We've had enough,' but why not have fun until they do?"
On the red carpet for her latest flick, We're the Millers, Jennifer Aniston agreed with her former co-stars that while the end did feel right, she'd gladly hop in a time machine back to 2004 and convince everyone to keep the train rolling. With almost a decade elapsed since the gang gathered in Central Perk, the trio are understandbly feeling very nostalgic.
Or, maybe, Lisa Kudrow is just tired of narrating Yoplait commercials, Perry's tired of having his development deal with NBC yield quickly-cancelled shows, and Aniston longs for the simpler days of portraying Rachel Green over having every silver screen choice scrutinized. Quick, someone call Matt LeBlanc and get him to stage a meta-reunion a la Curb Your Enthusiasm season seven on Episodes!
