Friends Reunion Nearly Matches Wonder Woman 1984 Views On HBO Max

Wonder Woman 1984¬†topped the streaming charts from December 21st,¬†while it was still streaming on the DC FanDome platform, through the 27th, after it had moved to¬†HBO Max. The superhero movie¬†was streamed for a total of¬†approximately 2.3 billion minutes, 35% more than the next most popular title,¬†Soul.¬†Friends’¬†29% viewership rating is based only on its release date, but the show¬†almost managed to reach¬†Wonder Woman¬†numbers¬†based on one day alone. The reunion also beat out the streaming premiere of¬†Mortal Kombat¬†in April. Fans who missed the premiere can watch the¬†Friends¬†reunion at their convenience, as the HBO Max Original will continue streaming.

Friends¬†ended in 2004 with¬†satisfying resolutions for its characters, making¬†a revival a tricky project to embark on.¬†Creators¬†Marta Kauffman, David Crane, and Kevin S. Bright, along with director Ben Winston, recognized as much, and the reunion’s¬†executive producers take a more realistic¬†approach that proves all the more touching for its honesty. Since it aired in the early aughts,¬†Friends¬†has achieved a level of cultural significance¬†that extends well beyond the world of the show.¬†Certain catchphrases, memes, and references to the sitcom¬†are so pervasive that even people who’ve never seen the show find themselves talking like Chandler Bing without realizing it.¬†Although the¬†massive popularity of the¬†special is remarkable, it’s unsurprising¬†that¬†generations of¬†Friends¬†fans would show up to the reunion.
