Friendship

What You Need To Know:

The first episode in the series A LITTLE HELP WITH CAROL BURNETT deals with the topic of friendship. Lis Kudrow, star of the popular 1990s sitcom Friends, guest stars as she comes to the children’s panel with a dilemma that she has booked a lunch with two different friends at the same time. The children on the panel offer Kudrow (and later one of the audience members) help on her “dilemma.” The children are cute and sassy with their advice and unafraid to speak their mind, which is the whole appeal of the show. 

A flaw in what would otherwise be a family-friendly episode is the fact that Kudrow was the star of a series that’s not appropriate for younger children. FRIENDS was more of a show for adults in that it was a comedy that pokes fun at friendship, love and sex. If a child were to see Kudrow on the talk-show and want to know more about her, having a conversation with your child as to why she is famous may be an awkward one to have.
