4.0 out of 5 stars One of the funnier seasons, 19 Jun. 2006
This review is from: Friends: Complete Season 2 [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
Season 2 of Friends includes some of the more memorable episodes throughout the whole ten series in my opinion. This particular season focuses on Ross and Rachel eventually getting together, Joey making a huge breakthrough in acting by getting the part of Dr. Drake Ramoray in the top TV show 'Days of our Lives' and then subsequently getting killed off and Monica getting together with her father's friend Richard Burke (played by Tom Selleck) and the problems that causes.

The episodes I am talking about which I feel are the most memorable are the ones where Chandler gets a new flatmate called Eddie after Joey moves out. Eddie then ends up being a complete nutcase and Chandler after realising this cannot get rid of him! Season 2 also includes the first flashback episode called 'The One With the Prom Video' where we see Rachel, Ross and Monica as they were ten years ago. That first appearance of Ross with the afro has got to be one of the funniest moments shown on TV in my opinion.

There are loads of cameos in this season including Charlie Sheen as an old boyfriend of Pheobe's, Brooke Shields as a crazed fan of Joey who actaully believes Dr. Drake Ramoray is a real person, Julia Roberts as a vengeful old schoolfriend of Chandler's who proceeds to get her own back on him for flashing her knickers to the school 20 years ago, Chris Isaak as another love interest for Pheobe and Jean Claude Van Damme who plays himself and causes friction between Rachel and Monica as they both want to date him! As stated before we also have the introduction of Tom Selleck in the role of Monica's boyfriend Richard Burke which does end up being a recurring role as he comes back in later seasons.

The one thing I have noticed with Friends and this is with the benefit of the DVD box sets is that they seem to reintroduce characters who have played parts earlier as other people. For example, I noticed that Joey's agent Estelle actually appeared originally at the end of Season 1 as one of the midwives at Carol's giving birth. Also, Pheobe's brother who first appears in Season 2 actually first appeared in the episode where Pheobe resorts to busking after losing her singing position in Central Perk to Chrissie Hynde from 'The Pretenders.' He tips her with a condom!!

Anyway, as I have said before, Friends is a wonderful series but again I have had to take off one star for the double sided DVD's which is what I did with the first season.
