Say it isn't so!

According to USAToday, the so-called "Friends" reunion is over before it could even happen.  Matthew Perry can't be there because he's in London rehearsing for a PLAY that starts next month.  A little dramatic, I know, but it's not the same without the WHOLE cast.

The phrase "'Friends' reunion" has always been a little misleading anyway.  What this really is, is a two-hour tribute to James Burrows, who's produced and directed TONS of shows over the years.  His other credits include "Mary Tyler Moore", "The Bob Newhart Show", "Taxi", "Cheers", "Frasier", "Will and Grace", and"Mike & Molly".

In my perfect world, there would be a "Friends: Where Are They Now?" spin off.  Sad panda.
