5.0 out of 5 stars Friends box set #3 - Is that counting mississippiley?, 6 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Friends - Season 1-10 Complete Collection (15th Anniversary) [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
Ok, so another box set and it's all been said and done before. But there is no harm in that when the content is as timelessly funny and classy as Friends. And this is a much better box set than #2 (the red boxed one...). Finally some good extra content (although this is not essential viewing IMO), and a nice booklet. Nice transfer quality too: it's a breath of fresh air if as watcher of the show on E4 you suffer from it's sometimes poor digital signal quality.

I love Friends. I've watched each episode soooo many times! And that's a sign of a TV shows greatness in my opinion - if you can watch it over and over. Friends are just that - friends. Silly, I know. But that's how you feel having watched them grow old and mature as people (like we all do). I've grown older with them and as a 90's twenty something it was my era (I guess that makes me biased).

In truth series 1 is showing it's age, but the last few still seem very modern and fresh to my eyes. References to anything that may date the show have been kept to a minimum, and even the clothes they wear are still fairly contemporary.

I wouldn't buy this if I already had one of the others, but I didn't as I've watched them on E4. But this aniversary one was too good to miss out on.

Great show, great item.

** Oh, and PLEASE don't make a film of Friends guys. Leave it's historical greatness alone! You can easily ruin a TV series completeness by making 'one for old times sake' - Remember Only Fools & Horses comeback anyone?..... Leave it alone Hollywood! It's just perfect as it ended.
