Last year Ofcom revealed that, despite its onslaught of buzzy originals, the most popular show on Netflix was Friends. The amount of money that Friends still generates is staggering, which means that the cast will be extraordinarily well compensated for their reunion. The bigger question, though, is whether or not the Friends reunion special will be any good.
At least this one is easy to answer. An unscripted special is a horrible hinterland of an idea.
That whole thing was a diabolical mess from start to finish. The cast looked awkward and ill-prepared. The host kept confusing the actors with the characters they played. The audience — who thought they had been sold a proper, scripted reunion episode — were vocal about how cheated and short-changed they felt. It reached number two on both the Billboard and the UK Albums Chart, selling more than four million copies worldwide. Since going their separate ways the group's members - including Frank Iero, Ray Toro and Mikey Way - have pursued other musical projects.
The streaming service has ordered a second season of the show starring Ellen Page, which is expected to air next year. Tickets for the reunion gig go on sale on 1 November. Listen to Newsbeat live at and weekdays - or listen back here.

An hour-long "highlights special" was broadcast on 22 and 31 December , that included eleven of the twenty-two songs performed. However, Melanie Brown confirmed on her website that footage of the tour was recorded but the quality was poor and they felt it was wrong to release a DVD for local distribution. Because the tour sold out quickly, it was impossible to have empty seats and make room for cameramen and extra lighting, making it impossible to film a high quality DVD.
