    HBO Max Wants To Know, How You Doin'? As It Teases 'Friends' Reunion

    The reunion which is being described as "an untitled unscripted special" will debut on the media giant's new streaming service HBO Max, along with all 236 episodes of Friends, which debuted in 1994 on NBC.
    Unscripted is industry-speak for reality-TV or a documentary, which indicates this will not be a reboot of the scripted series.

    This is all too sudden. Hawaii Five-O is ending after the current 10th season. Special 2-hour series finale Friday April 3.

    Hawaii Five-0 Ending With Season 10


    This trend of less and less scripted OTA shows worthy of watching continues to shrink my OTA 1P list. I could soon be left with nothing but competition reality and late night talk shows to go along with a few sitcoms.

    I just came here to post the same thing. I thought maybe I missed it in this thread somewhere. I’m really not happy about this. :(

    There was another mini-Magnum crossover tonight. The verdict is still out on Magnum. On one hand Five-O ending can't bode well for Magnum because it gets lower ratings, but then again maybe they'll consider letting Magnum survive because it probably has lower production costs.

    I live in Honolulu (where they do most of the production), and there hasn't been even a hint of a rumor about this (I even have friends that are regular extras and are on set a fair amount). So either they did an absolutely masterful job keeping the decision under raps for months or they are going to edit the last 2 minutes of the existing 2 part season finale to make it a series finale. I hope not the latter. I don't really need another "finale" like Castle.

    There have been rumors for at least the past 2 years that Alex O’Loughlin wanted to end the series. It was taking a toll on him physically.

    You realized there's always streaming. Plenty of scripted shows on Netflix, AP and so forth. I hadn't realized the remake had been on 10 years. I used to watch the original with my family when i was a kid and had no dibs on the one TV in the house. Didn't have a desire to see this as I'm not really a fan of police procedurals.

    I used to really like it but I lost interest somewhere around season 4 or 5... I didn’t realize it was still on!

    Only watched occasionally. Definitely lasted longer than I thought it would.

    I guess I’m in the minority around here, as usual. I’m still loving it and I will miss it when it’s gone.

    Not surprised, considering it ended in a two-episode Saturday night burnoff a couple of weekends ago.

    Another Fox drama which, IMO, had a good premise that was put on the back burner.

    Wonder if the recent sexual assault claim against Timothy Hutton had anything to do with it being canceled?

    Nah, it just sucked. I barely finished the pilot. Or maybe I didn't. Either way it was terrible.

    Could be a new thread, perhaps.
