At this point, it's common knowledge that the reported Friends reunion isn't technically a reunion, but that still won't stop my excitement from going into hyperdrive at the sight of the majority of cast together again for the first time in what feels like forever.

The "reunion" is actually an NBC television special set up to honor James Burrows, who directed and co-created a number of legendary shows like Cheers, Friends, and The Big Bang Theory.

This past Sunday, the sitcom mashup of our dreams came true as some of the cast members of Friends and The Big Bang Theory posed for a photo together. Naturally, Kaley Cuoco was as excited as the rest of us and had to geek out about it a bit on social media.


Although we'e seen plenty of the actors hanging out over the years, we finally get to see David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow all hanging out together just like in the good old Friends days. And it gives us a glimpse at what a Friends-TBBT crossover episode would have looked like.

The only member of the core Friends group not present is Miss. Chanandler Bong, sorry, Matthew Perry. Although he wasn't at the event, we've still been seeing plenty of him and hearing some fascinating Friends trivia as of late! Perry has been making headlines of his own in London since promoting his play The End of Longing, which the Friends funnyman wrote and will star in next month.

Other than having Matthew Perry in attendance, the only thing that could have made this pseudo-reunion better would have been seeing them lounging on Central Perk's iconic orange couch with mugs the size of bowls placed in front of each of them. Ahh memories.

The James Burrows televised tribute will air on February 21 from 9 to 11 P.M.
