Giving a Friend a Helping–and Painfully Insightful–Hand

There were five claps in the ‘Friends’ theme song, right?

Anyways, ‘Friends’ ended in 2004 yet its shining pop cultural legacy continues to be as bright as its original run beginning in the nostalgic, distant yesteryear of 1994.

One of those real-life friends is Matt LeBlanc who played the non-real-life “How you doin’?” goofball ladies man Joey Tribbiani. And despite his current CBS sitcom ‘Man with a Plan,’ it’s been a while since he’s returned to his beloved character. He played a hilariously obnoxious version of himself in ‘Episodes’ with ‘Friends’ alums David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik, but that’s not enough.

Maybe it was four claps in “I’ll Be There for You”?

While we will never be treated to a ‘Friends’ reunion–just the harsh reality of a fictional world–we should take a minute to enjoy any brief return visits related to the hit show when they come to us.

Speaking of which, Matt LeBlanc just appeared on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.’

Talk about the ultimate friendly slap bet.

Tune into tonight’s ‘Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ to see the full interview with Matt LeBlanc at 11:30 p.m. ET.

Do You Like Watching a Sitcom at 9? And Not Getting Caught in the Rain?

Should we ask people questions? Is that a good quality to have? Do some of us have the ability to read each other’s minds? Is the “Piña Colada” song weirdly catchy? Isn’t Thursday a great day to relax, laugh and realize the weekend is almost here?

Yes.

When does cop sitcom ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ starring funnyman Andy Samberg (sans bonkers wig) make its network comeback since being canceled at Fox?

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET. on NBC.

Just watch the show and escape.

P.S. I went to cakedonalds.com. You should too. 

Is ‘Delta’ the Dawn of a New Era for Mumford & Sons?

Aside from keyboardist Ben Lovett looking like a stereotypical ’70s drug dealer who hangs around the disco on Thursday night before trying his pick-up lines on the ladies, it sounds like British folk rockers Mumford & Sons have a promising new single from a promising new album titled ‘Delta.’

Personally, the band’s previous album ‘Wilder Mind’ was incredible. The guitars and drums were louder when they needed to be and more controlled when they needed to be for a memorable music collection. The lyrics were fantastic and the album’s sound has staying power. Interestingly, the new single “Guiding Light” doesn’t definitively reveal a new daring sound. Nor does it confirm a return to past songs by Mumford & Sons.

It’s just…good.

And on the 14-track album ‘Delta,’ there will be plenty for us to listen to while our mind wanders to something deeply personal, imaginative and–dare I write it–wilder than what we’re expecting from Mumford & Sons?

We’ll find out on November 16 when the new album drops.

Happy Monday!

Despite graduating from high school many, many years ago–well, the specific number of years isn’t important–there’s still this lingering feeling from time-to-time in which high school pops back into my life in some form or another. I think it’s fair to say it’s a universal feeling.

In some ways it’s good. And in some ways it’s bad.

If only we could travel back in time for a second chance at those prized opportunities missed…

(aside from the movie ’17 Again’ in which that is the literal plot)

I sense a recurring bit with these two funny people that will provide us with some great mini-sitcom moments like in the video above.

Kevin Hart’s new movie ‘Night School’ opens in a theater near you this Friday.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
