US and international viewers penned: ‘The One Where HBO GO crashed #FriendsTheReunion… HBO GO crashing : “We were on a break!!”…  

‘##FriendsTheReunion… The one where I subscribed to HBO Go just for #FriendsReunion and it crashes. Anu na?!?!?!?!…

‘Today’s Friend’s episode can be named as “The One Where HBO GO’s servers crashed”… Ok someone will definitely be fired after this HBO crash.’ 

Friends is arguably one of most successful sitcoms of all time, running for 10 beloved seasons and 235 episodes from 1994 to 2004, which has left fans clamoring for a reunion, and that day is finally here.

The six stars – Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer – reunited on the Warner Bros. studio lot, where the show was filmed, for a night chocked full of laughs, tears and everything in between.

Laughs and tears: The six iconic stars – Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer – reunited on the Warner Bros. studio lot, where the original show was filmed, for a night chocked full of laughs, tears and everything in between

The special was filmed over a three-day period on the Warner Bros. lot, using the iconic fountain from the show as a backdrop for the cast’s main discussion, hosted by James Corden.

The Late Late Show host – whose choice was quite controversial among fans – delved into the making of the show in a lively discussion.

Corden also brought over Ben Winston, who serves as showrunner on The Late Late Show, to serve as the director and producer of the reunion special.

Though the Q&A did garner some criticism for failing to delve too deeply into topics that most Friends super-fans weren’t already familiar with.
