The iconic Friends NBC series began its 10-year run in September of 1994 and went on to become a cultural phenomenon that continues to this day. That's why fans are in such a frenzy about the very real possibility that we'll see a Friends reunion special on HBO Max at some point this year. The special would coincide with the 25th anniversary of the show and promote the fact that HBO Max will be the new home for the Friends series after taking over the streaming rights from Netflix last year.
Another popular release that has tied into the Friends 25th anniversary is the 21319 LEGO Ideas Central Perk set. It clocks in at 1070-pieces and includes features like a removable seating area, a stage for Phoebe's performances, and tons of accessories and Easter eggs for fans. It sold out everywhere during the holidays, but if you missed it you're second chance is happening right now.
