We sat down with Bandslam and Web Therapy star Lisa Kudrow yesterday (look for her EW Pop Culture Personality Test on Friday), and naturally, the subject eventually turned to that beloved TV show of hers. We speak, of course, of Friends The Comeback. Like Kudrow, we’re thinking it’s time to revisit that short-lived HBO series on DVD: Her brilliant performance as Valerie Cherish, a sitcom has-been getting a second chance at fame, earned the show a spot on our list of the 100 New TV Classics, so there’s less guilt than tuning in for Big Brother After Dark. And “The Complete First Only Season” DVD is now on sale on Amazon for $11.99, which is cheaper than going out for mojitos with Slezak and hearing him quote from it.

Anyone else obsessed with The Comeback? And who’s up for a summer viewing party? Say yes, folks! Because, as we know, “People like Valerie Cherish! And they don’t want to see her brutalized!”
