While many have knocked this season for showing that Friends is running out of steam, I couldn't disagree more. I always felt it was the 6th season that could have been better. This season marked a return to storylines focussing on the central characters, rather than pointless outsiders like Bruce Willis and Elle McPherson. True, there were no major, ground-breaking story-arcs, but the laid-back, low key atmosphere gives us chance just to enjoy the characters doing what they do best; living their lives and making us laugh in the process. As well as the excitement of Monica and Chandler's impending wedding, we have an ever blossoming friendship with new roomies Joey and Rach, more stunning one liners from Phoebe and a far more likeable Ross than we've had in years. With standout episodes TOW (The One With...) The Nap Partners, TOW Cheesecakes, TOW The Truth About London, and of course TOW Monica and Chandler's Wedding, this seventh season simply shone, and the word from over the pond is that Season eight is even shinier! Add this to your basket today!

It's like a security blanket: we are all forever safe in the knowledge that Friends will be around til the day we die, despite it's final 10th season, it'll be re-run and watched over and over again, much like Cheers.
Season 7 is probably not the best series of the lot, but it is by no means disappointing, with the central storyline being the run-up to Chandler and Monica's wedding. There's crazy-Monica galore as she obssesses over every tiny detail and goes to extremes to get the wedding of her dreams (watch The One With The Cheap Wedding Dress, hilarious!), Chandler wrestles with his past and finally confronts it (Kathleen Turner is outstanding as "Mr" Bing) and the rest of the Friends pitch in anyway they can: Ross shows us his musical side - not with the keyboards, but with bagpipes in The One With Joey's New Brain - Joey becomes ordained as a minister, whilst Phoebe and Rachel fight for the position of Maid of Honour.
Aside from the wedding, guest star Eddie Cahill (from CSI) provides a new love interest for Rachel as her younger assistant, Tag. Denise Richards' charms allure the guys (and one girl!) in The One With Ross and Monica's Cousin and the Friends come to terms with the fact that 30-something is impending and wave goodbye to their 20s.
There are some episodes that have a distinct 'filler' feel to them, like The One With All the Cheesecakes, which is why I only awarded 4 stars as previous seasons have been outstanding with every episode delivering, but it's still pretty damn good and worth the purchase.

Series 1 of freinds is great to watch, filled with memories of old heaircuts, past girlfriends and all the information to fill the gaps for those that started watching later than the rest of the addicted 'friends' watchers. Don't miss out on these episodes with Joey's parents, the valentine's day bonfire night, Ross and Joey's sexy talk and Phoebe's twin. I have series 1 and 2 and always watch them particularly as now, friends is becoming more and more complicated and the characters arent as original and funny as they used to. Watching the earlier series just gives you a chance to remember how they sarted out. So for the friends fans and those that just want a great video, I recommend series 1 and 2 and definitely these 4 episodes (one of my favourite being series 1 episode 13).

Episodes 9-12 Featuring THE ONE WITH THE RUMOR, THE ONE WITH MONICA'S BOOTS, THE ONE WITH ROSS'S STEP FOWARD & THE ONE WHERE JOEY DATES RACHEL. What a collection this season will be these episode will make you want to see more and more and more first up the gang have guest star Brad Pitt over for thanksgiving and find out a interesting rumor that Will (Brad Pitt) & Ross spread in high school. Then followed by Monica's amazing new boots which cost so much that she cant admit to chandler they're uncomfortable. Then Ross takes a step foward as he & Mona (His girlfriend) decide to send out a holiday card together. Then the storyline really hots up as Joey & Rachel go out on a date... to be continued the writters have given us a kind of mid season cliffhanger so if you cant wait for the next set of videos to come heres what to expect THE ONE WHERE CHANDLER TAKES A BATH, Chandler finds the quality's of taking a bath. THE ONE WITH THE SECRET CLOSET, Have you ever woundered what monica keeps in the closet at the back by the bathroom find out. THE ONE WITH THE BIRTHING VIDEO, A interesting birthing video ruins valantines day for Monica & Chandler. THE ONE WITH MONICA'S SOULMATE, Phoebe brings up an conversation about soulmates which leads to Monica revealing hers. But back to SEASON 8 EPISODES 9-12 they are a must buy, 100% Great friends Eps.

Episodes 1-4 of Series 5 are indeed comedy classics - the aftermath of Ross saying Rachel in the wedding vows is brilliantly put together, with great interaction with famous British actors such as Jennifer Saunders. The suspense and tension is well contrasted with the other Friends' lighter comments made by characters such as Joey and Phoebe. The surrogacy issue is dealt with sensitively, and despite the fact that 'Friends' is a comedy, the writers have made room for a tearful and moving end with no inappropriate comic interjections, which would spoil what is a serious subject so it is not ridiculed or demeaned in any way. There is an extremely funny episode dealing with Chandler and Monica's secret affair and entwined with it is the issue of deceit and frienship which is portayed well. The first four episodes herald a gem of comedy the rest of the episodes in Series 5 are no disappointment.

This has to be the best Friends video ever.All of the 4 episodes on this are classics.The scenes in the 1st episode where Pheobe "cuts" Monica's hair are side-splitting,and when the gang meet Julie!When Rachel finds out about Monica's friendship with Julie,she reacts as if Monica has had an affair,and the dialogue between them is the 3rd episode where Mr Heckles(the grumpy neighbour)dies,he leaves all of his things to Monica and Rachel,and the gang find he owned some very interesting belongings...!In the last episode,fans will be stunned to realise that Pheobe has a husband,but there is a twist to that story!The scene where they both scratch their chickenpox with ovengloves is brilliant viewing!Overall,if you're looking for any Friends video to buy,make sure it's this one.

After the dramatic episodes of previuos series of Friends could series nine be as hilarious as the previous eight. the answer is yes.
This series starts off with the episode 'The One Where No One Proposes' This episode is the aftermath of Emma's Birth were rachel thinks shes engagde to Joey much to Ross' dismay. It also includes scenes where Chandler and Monica are trying to get pregnant much to Monica's fathers delight. He gives them tips on how to get pregnant.
In 'The One Where Emma Cries' Rachel learns the hard way that you shouls never wake a sleeping baby. Rachel starts to feel that she isnt any good as a mother and its up to Monica to bring her hopes up. Also in this episode Chandler agrees after falling asleep in a meeting to move to Tulsa much Monica's dismay. She doesnt want to go and gets a job in Manhattan so she doesnt have to. Also Ross has a fight with Joey over his accidental propsal to Rachel. Ross breaks his thumb leading Joey to believe that Chandler doesnt not know how to fight.
In 'The One with The paediatrician' Rachel discovers that Ross still sees his paediatrician after she gets fired by her own because she rings that up all hours of the day and night. Joey and Phoebe arrange dates for one another which ends in disaster when Joey forgets and picks a complete stranger from the coffee house called Mike.
In the final episode on this video 'The One with The Sharks' Monica believes on a trip to Tulsa to see Chandler that her husband is into shark movies. Phoebe and Mike become an item after the disaster that was their first date. Joey becomes concerned that a girl he once slept with doesnt remember him and Phoebe reflects on why she has never been in a long term relationship.
The four episodes on this video are excellent. they continue the Friends humour that is shown in all of the preceding series. This video is a must for all Friends Fans.

Although I believe this is the weakest out of all the Friends series', i still think it deserves a lot of credit as it is better than most other comedy shows around. I think that even at this point when friends was not at its best, it was still better than most of the competition.
Series 7 is basically the lead up to the wedding of Chandler and Monica and although it does have its enjoyable parts, examples being the episode at the library, it does not have the energy of the earlier series' or the comedy of 8,9 and 10. I personally think that series 2 and 4 are the best of the lot closley followed by the series' before number 7. I don't know what went wrong here, but it seemed like they struggled to think of interesting storylines in the build up to the wedding.
Negative points aside, I still think this is fantastic and deserves its place in your collection f you like friends. Remember, this is only my personal opinion as i know few people who prefer the later series' of friends. Overall i think if you are a collector of the friends dvds or you want to follow the storyline from beggining to end, this is a must. Otherwise, if you just want 1 or 2 of the boxsets i would go for series 2 to see the magnificent early comedy and series 8 or 9 to see how it is has developed after all those years.

This is definetally the best series of Friends yet! It's also the best DVD set! It features all 24 episodes of Series 7 in their original from PLUS on the reverse side of the DVD, it has every episode in a special edition form where they all include bonus footage, ranging from less than a minute of extra footage, to upwards of 8 minutes! The One With The Truth About London's special edition version contains over 8 minutes of exrta footage, and is completly different from the aired version, with even an extra subplot! Here's a quick run down of the season: Best Episode/ Moment: The One With Monia and Chandler's Wedding/ The HUGE suprise at the end of this episode, which will totally change 'Friends' in everyway! I won't spoil it for you!) Worst Episode: All were great this season, but The One Where They're Up All Night could have been improved, and it is better in the extended cut. Overall Rating: Best Season (Series) yet! All these episodes are greatly enhanced and this is a must buy for a friends fan!
