Jennifer Aniston Thinks a Modern-day ‘Friends’ Would Just Be Everyone On Their Phones

When you look back at two of the biggest sitcoms of the 90s, the shows Friends and Seinfeld undoubtedly come up first in the conversation.  While each show still carries millions and millions of loyal followers and do extremely well in syndication, can these shows really hold up today?  The answer is “absolutely” with the exception of one key factor: technology.  The subject matter is great.  The story lines are great.  Even the dialogue would hold up today.  However when it comes to surroundings, the culture, and lifestyles, these shows are a bit outdated.  One of the stars of Friends, Jennifer Aniston, lent her opinion on the matter recently:

“Now you have a computer, a television, and a phone. There’s no room,” Aniston said. “We were jokingly saying that if Friends was created today, you would have a coffee shop full of people that were just staring into iPhones. There would be no actual episodes or conversations.”

Is she 100% right?  Not really.  Shows today work just fine and they’re not showing people just glaring at their phones.  TV shows about adult friends struggling through life together are as ubiquitous as ever but perhaps Aniston was referring to the fact that the crew on Friends had crappy attention spans thus phones would rule their lives?  Who knows? Doesn’t really matter since Friends is gone forever now.
