A startlingly good season
on 28 December 2001
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!
