Beaten only By Series 2,
This review is from: Friends: Complete Season 3 - New Edition [DVD]  (DVD)
Although competing with the previous season as the best series of the ten, this is definitely one of the best and most exciting seasons of Friends, it's the season where Ross and Rachel are; still dating, break-up, and eventually decide to get back together by the season's end. In between lots of events take place, e.g. Monica gets a new boyfriend (Pete the millionaire) and Joey &Chandler buy birds (a chick and a duck). The season features some of the all-time favourite Friends episodes! I love the packaging! You take it out of the cover and the DVD version is like a folder. It opens up into like 6 pages with the DVDs and episodes listings. You can also choose to have subtitles (choice is from 4 different languages) or you can choose to have none.
The episodes are:
The one with the Princess Leia Fantasy- Ross' secret fantasy doesn't stay secret for long after he confides in Rachel. Chandler begins to rekindle his relationship with ex-girlfriend Janice.
The one where no one's ready- Ross gets riled when his friends fail to be ready on time for a museum fundraiser.

The one with the flashback- Janice asks them if they've ever dated each other, they say no but they start thinking of the past (when Joey hits on Monica by stripping and when Chandler tries to make something happen between him and Rachel).
The one with the racecar bed- The 'Mattress King store' sends Monica a wrong bed, a kid's bed.

Special features: This disc has the best special features' options. You can take in an Open house at Joey and Chandler's Bachelor Pad with the interactive menu (you can even flip through a 'Friends' scrap book). 2nd- you can leaf through the Friends of Friends Guest book (e.g. Billy Crystal). 3rd- You can learn what's up with your friends with video guides. 4th- You can do a Rachel-Ross trivia quiz: every right answer brings them closer to each other and every wrong answer moves them apart.
I highly recommend this season. Not only is the season extremely funny but also I love the packaging and everything. The episodes also have extra footage that you've never seen. Every episode has at least 1 line that had to be cut-off because of limited time when it was aired
