It's been 18 years since the last episode of Friends aired, and Lisa Kudrow's 24-year-old son has finally gotten around to watching the famous sitcom! Kudrow's son was only 5 when the show wrapped up, so it makes sense he wasn't watching it in real-time (obviously), but now that he has seen his hilarious momma do her thing as Phoebe Buffay, what does he have to say? Let's take a closer look!

In a recent episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, Kudrow shared that her son, Julian Stern decided it was finally time to watch Friends during his time quarantine from COVID. The actress admitted her son "did start watching when his friends at school were watching, and you [have] to know what everyone's watching." Kudrow, who is most famously known for her role as Phoebe Buffay, added, "So he watched it, and he was impressed." Well, as big Friends enthusiasts, we're glad to hear he's on board!

Kudrow told the late-night host that her son called her up after watching and said, "So I just watched the first two episodes. It's really good, Mom,'" to which she responded, "Thanks." However, the conversation didn't end just yet! "'Can I ask you some questions about that?'" he said to his mom, "I'm like, 'Yes!' I almost started crying. I didn't think that anyone in my family liked that show." What a relief for everyone!

However, the plot quickly turned from sweet to bittersweet when Stern revealed, "It's actually really funny, and the guys are so funny." Hello, what about your hilarious mother, the one and only Phoebe Buffay?! Obviously, Kudrow questioned his response, to which he quickly responded, "No, I mean, you're funny too," he said. "And never in my life have I wanted to tell my own kid, '**** you.'" Despite really wanting to tell him off, she didn't actually tell him that! From one parent to another, Kudrow and Meyers agreed, "The difference between a good parent and a bad parent is, do you say it?" We'll let you be the judge of that one!
