FRIENDS ROCKS!!! :--- But...,
By A Customer
This review is from: Friends: Complete Series 8 [DVD]  (DVD)
I am a huge friends fan and have almost every episode on video or DVD. I have been, however, disappointed with the latest seasons, and feel that the show is becoming increasingly crude and dull. Series 8 was good, but some of the actors are not as good as in the early seasons, some of the storylines fail to begin until near the end, and many of the jokes do not have a punchline worthy of seasons 1-3. The One with Joey's interview is the flashback episode of the season, but is poorly constructed and ends on a very poor joke.
Highlights-Monica and Chandler's Honeymoon, the Halloween party, Joey's infamous long term crush on Rachel, and the fantastic cliffhanger finale that left so many of us in tears.
The One with Joey's interview is the flashback episode of the season, but is poorly constructed and ends on a very poor joke.
With the acting and the jokes getting worn, this series does produce some good episodes, with episodes that you can watch again and again, including:
The One after I Do
The One with the Red Sweater
The One with the Videotape
The One with the Stripper
The One where Rachel has a baby
Despite the flaws I have mentioned, the first and last episodes make this well worth buying.
