Four more episodes from the first season of the popular US sitcom. In 'The One With the Boobies', Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) is caught with her guard, and everything else, down by Chandler (Matthew Perry). 'The One With the Candy Hearts' sees Valentine's Day become an occasion for exorcising past demons rather than celebrating new romances. Monica (Courteney Cox) is job-interviewed by a drug-addled chef in 'The One With the Stoned Guy', whilst in 'The One With the Two Parts - Part One', Joey (Matt Le Blanc) becomes attracted to Phoebe's (Lisa Kudrow) twin sister.
Season 1: When the first series of Friends debuted in September 1994, it was immediately obvious there would be no need for the show to find its feet. "The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate" was a confident introduction to the six lead characters, opening in the middle of an everyday conversation with the soon-to-be uncharacteristic line: "There's nothing to tell". In fact, the soap opera-style plot got complicated pretty quickly, with spoiled brat Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) moving on from her failed wedding to feelings toward nerdy/heartthrob Ross (David Schwimmer). However, no love life was more complicated than Joey's (Matt LeBlanc), with an endless stream of girlfriends that annoyed the hell out of wisecracking roommate Chandler (Matthew Perry), who only seemed to be able to connect with Janice (Maggie Wheeler), the shrillest voice in the city. Bouncing all manner of neuroses around them were Ross' obsessive sister Monica (Courteney Cox) and endearingly ditzy Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow). Premise established, Series 1 matured the characters by providing a monkey and a son for Ross. We met also meet Ross and Monica's parents Jack (Elliott Gould) and Judy (Christina Pickles), Chandler's mother (Morgan Fairchild) and Phoebe's twin sister Ursula (Kudrow, naturally). Fans loved cameos from George Clooney, Jay Leno and show creators Kevin Bright, Marta Kauffman and David Crane. But really the focus was on building to "T.O.W. Rachel Finds Out" that Ross is in love with her. --Paul Tonks

Season 7 is probably not the best series of the lot, but it is by no means disappointing, with the central storyline being the run-up to Chandler and Monica's wedding. There's crazy-Monica galore as she obssesses over every tiny detail and goes to extremes to get the wedding of her dreams (watch The One With The Cheap Wedding Dress, hilarious!), Chandler wrestles with his past and finally confronts it (Kathleen Turner is outstanding as "Mr" Bing) and the rest of the Friends pitch in anyway they can: Ross shows us his musical side - not with the keyboards, but with bagpipes in The One With Joey's New Brain - Joey becomes ordained as a minister, whilst Phoebe and Rachel fight for the position of Maid of Honour.
Aside from the wedding, guest star Eddie Cahill (from CSI) provides a new love interest for Rachel as her younger assistant, Tag. Denise Richards' charms allure the guys (and one girl!) in The One With Ross and Monica's Cousin and the Friends come to terms with the fact that 30-something is impending and wave goodbye to their 20s.
There are some episodes that have a distinct 'filler' feel to them, like The One With All the Cheesecakes, which is why I only awarded 4 stars as previous seasons have been outstanding with every episode delivering, but it's still pretty damn good and worth the purchase.
This series starts off with the episode 'The One Where No One Proposes' This episode is the aftermath of Emma's Birth were rachel thinks shes engagde to Joey much to Ross' dismay. It also includes scenes where Chandler and Monica are trying to get pregnant much to Monica's fathers delight. He gives them tips on how to get pregnant.
In 'The One Where Emma Cries' Rachel learns the hard way that you shouls never wake a sleeping baby. Rachel starts to feel that she isnt any good as a mother and its up to Monica to bring her hopes up. Also in this episode Chandler agrees after falling asleep in a meeting to move to Tulsa much Monica's dismay. She doesnt want to go and gets a job in Manhattan so she doesnt have to. Also Ross has a fight with Joey over his accidental propsal to Rachel. Ross breaks his thumb leading Joey to believe that Chandler doesnt not know how to fight.
In 'The One with The paediatrician' Rachel discovers that Ross still sees his paediatrician after she gets fired by her own because she rings that up all hours of the day and night. Joey and Phoebe arrange dates for one another which ends in disaster when Joey forgets and picks a complete stranger from the coffee house called Mike.
In the final episode on this video 'The One with The Sharks' Monica believes on a trip to Tulsa to see Chandler that her husband is into shark movies. Phoebe and Mike become an item after the disaster that was their first date. Joey becomes concerned that a girl he once slept with doesnt remember him and Phoebe reflects on why she has never been in a long term relationship.
The four episodes on this video are excellent. they continue the Friends humour that is shown in all of the preceding series. This video is a must for all Friends Fans.

So far started watching it. Has some of the great episodes. Although there are too many discs included. At times the episode that I am watching freezes.Published 3 months ago by Fakaruddin Ali Ahmed
A couple seasons of Friends revolved heavily around the relationship between two of the characters. No, I’m not talking about Rachel and Ross but about Monica and Chandler. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Mark Baker - Carstairs Considers
