The Seven-Season Itch,
By A Customer
This review is from: Friends, Series 7 - Episodes 17-20 [DVD]  (DVD)
If you are a FRIENDS fan what I or anyone else says doesn't matter, but a couple quick points.
1) Of course you have realized that we are all getting ripped-off. On FRIENDS Series 1-6 DVDS there there were 8 Episodes per disc. Now we get four and charged the same.
2)Things are heading downhill -- and fast. Another reviewer makes a good point about the surge in the number of guest stars. Here's an idea. For the price paid to get Winona Ryder for a 3-minute scence you could hire a team of writers writers to inject some life back into a rapidly deteriorating series. Throwing big names into small-time plots isn't the answer.
All that said, the ratings in the US are still strong. There's an "if it ain't broke don't fix it" attitude on the set so don't expect an upturn in quality. That's too bad. For five years, it was a great show.
