From Amazon.co.uk

The eighth season of Friends picks up just moments after Monica and Chandler said, "I do." But the focus of this season is firmly on Rachel's pregnancy, as the story progresses from fatherhood revelations in "The One with the Red Sweater" and "The One Where Rachel Tells..." toward complicated new feelings for Rachel, Ross, and Joey, culminating in the maternity ward two-parter "The One Where Rachel Has a Baby." But it's not all Rachel's pregnancy story. Standalone highlights include "The One with the Rumor" in which the "We Hate Rachel" club started in high school by Ross and a certain Mr. Jennifer Aniston (an uncredited Brad Pitt) is revealed; while "The One with Monica's Boots" has Monica and Chandler arguing over finances when Phoebe and Ross are arguing over the attentions of Sting's wife, Trudie Styler (cameoing as herself). Relationship complications fall upon Phoebe as "The One with the Tea Leaves" hooks her up with a stellar cameo from Alec Baldwin. "The One with Joey's Interview" has Matt LeBlanc in top form preparing to be interviewed by Soap Opera Digest. But time starts to tick faster for everyone in "The One Where Rachel Is Late," as Joey's WWI movie finally arrives, but is overshadowed by the wait for Rachel's overdue arrival. Naturally it's all build-up to the cliffhanger finale and a final emotional surprise. --Paul Tonks

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply wonderful 26 Feb 2005
Format:DVD
I have to be honest from the start and say I was never the biggest fan of Friends. I never managed to get into it, finding it amusing at best and only watching it casually if there was nothing else on.
However, that was some time ago and on the high praise from some friends of mine, I decided to have a gamble on one of these new re-releases of the well-known series, starting with this one because it's got the episode with Brad Pitt in from the 'we hate Rachel Green club.' This is kind of sad now they've split in real life, but I've always been curious to see this episode. What I wasn't prepared for in the least was the comedy, addictiveness and surprising depth this series explores.
It begins with people discovering that Rachel is pregnant. Some funny situations lead to a huge laugh when we discover who the father is, and yet another memorable moment when the father himself discovers the truth! How Rachel and those close to her deal with her pregnancy and the inevitable events leading up to it is often funny, but very moving at times too, giving a real insight into what it must be like for single mothers going through pregnancies, minus the comedy moments of course.
This series is exceptional and I'll be watching it over and over again for a long time to come. I recommend you do the same. Haven't finished it yet though, so I can't wait to see how it all turns out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless classic 4 Aug 2009

Friends is the pinnacle of American comedy, a truly amazing series which captured everyone's hearts. The cast is amazing, the writers always original and inventive, this series grew over the 10 years and always managed to become better and better. Owning the whole collection is a must!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Series so far 12 Aug 2002
Format:DVD
Series 8 is by far the best series of Friends that has ever been made. This set contains all 24 episodes from the multiple award-winning number 1 comedy ever. Each disk contains 4 original episodes plus on side B, uncut versions of each episode, with footage that i recon should have been left in the orginal episodes. Although Friends has been going for 8 years, the magic and the comedy has not disappeared. Marta Kauffman and David Crane (the producers of Friends) should be proud that their second to last series has made me laugh more than any other. Although there is only one more series to go, Friends will never leave you with this box set on your shelf. With special guest stars including Sean Penn, Alec Baldwin and even Brad Pitt!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Comedy 15 Nov 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are funnier things than Friends on television, but nothing as long-lasting and consistently funny. In Season 8, the acting and directing (as well as visual quality) have improved from the early series, whilst it has lost none of its inventiveness and sparkle.

The season kicks off right after Monica & Chandler's "I do" and with the finding that Rachel is with child. Her pregnancy comes up in all 24 episodes. From the identity of the father ("Oh no- don't tell me it's her!"), to the possibility of marriage ("What, because that's your answer to everything?") and breaking the news to the parents (I particularly loved Rach explaining to her father why Ross won't marry her: "He says I'm damaged goods"). The question comes up: can the pair commit themselves to raising the child together whilst continuing their separate love lives as before? Certainly, it's not the sort of thing that blights lives: Rachel has a stable career and can afford to refuse a husband. It is perhaps in recognition of how anaesthetised it is that halfway through the season, she meets a much younger woman with far fewer financial means in the same situation. Interestingly, there is no mention whatsoever of the possibility of abortion.

Also involving R&R, an old friend from High School returns bearing an old and dark hatred (played by Brad Pitt, who is not mentioned in the credits for some reason) and that old favourite, a woman demanding sex from a man (nobody as attractive as Jennifer Aniston can be so pathetic at sexual provocation). Meanwhile, see Phoebe spell out her name ("P as in Phoebe..."), Joey reminiscing about his first good review ("Everything else was just terrible; Joey Tribbiani was abysmal."), Monica splurging on a pair of ill-fitting boots ("They're killing me, one toe at a time!

By S. J. Smith VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
For over eight seasons now Friends has consistantly hit the mark in the humour stakes. It's never failed to strike a chord with it's audience, never revelled in it's own hype, never gone through the motions or suffered from old-age-gag-redo syndrome. Nothing but fresh. Fresh jokes, fresh scenarios, fresh delivery, each and every episode. To be commended.
Well, you'd think so wouldn't you?
In actual fact though, the 'EMMY' awards (America's TV Oscars) have passed 'Friends' by year in and year out up until now. And for what reason? Some would argue that 'Frasier' deserved the award that it claimed each year as the cast of Friends looked on with brave, plastic smiles. Some would argue that now the competition is less apparent, i.e Frasier doesn't air any more so who's left to stand in the way?
However, one award in eight seasons...some would argue that Friends has been hard done to. Okay, it may not have the same subtle touches of Frasier but it always hit the target. It's cast may be picture perfect examples of modern, unobtainable beauty, but their constantly neurotic character execution keeps them human, keeps them familiar and keeps them funny.
This season is no different from any other. The standard is still high, the acting still priceless and the stories still appealing. It's got everything. If you're already a fan then you need no encouragement...in fact, why are you even reading this!? However, if you're new to the whole Friends deal...I suggest you start at Episode One/Season One and fall in love with Friends like the rest of us.
For the established fan base...I heard recently from buddies in North America that there are plans for a 'Joey' spin-off show after season ten! Yay!!!
