Review:  So like Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Friends started whilst again, I was probably too young to get into any television shows that weren’t aimed towards children, like Power Rangers or anything on Cartoon Network. But eventually, I managed to watch all ten seasons of friends. The reunion special brings together the main cast again, with James Corden as the host, whilst there are some revelations along the way. If you have time, give it a watch as some people have said that they got emotional during some segments. I have to warn you though, like myself, there was no meaningful appearance of Scott Lang... I mean Paul Rudd which had me scratching my head
