I've got your gritty reboot right here

So many remakes and reboots. So many. Sometimes, lately, of things we saw in the Nineties, and even the Eighties. Sometimes taking what we saw before and turning it on its ear, maybe making it darker and grimmer.

Why not a darker, grimmer Friends? Why not, indeed? Here's the opening theme for the debut episode, “The One Where It All Goes To Shit”:

So: no one told you life was gonna be this way

[Here's where there should be dissonant, echoey percussion, but I couldn't add that]

Your job's a joke, you're broke
Your love life's D.O.A
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month
Or even your year, so

...WERE they there for you?
When the rain began to pour?
WERE they there for you?
When it went wrong once more?
WERE they there for you?
Or were you dead to them, too?
