Four more episodes from the seventh season of the popular American sitcom. In 'The One Where Rosita Dies', Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) encounters a suicidal workmate on the first day of her new job. 'The One Where They All Turn Thirty' sees the friends reminiscing about their respective thirtieth birthdays when Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) begins agonizing over hers. In 'The One with Joey's New Brain', Joey (Matt LeBlanc) inadvertently lets the cat out of the bag to a colleague in his soap 'Days of Our Lives' that her character is being axed. 'The One with the Truth About London' sees Monica (Courtney Cox) and Chandler (Matthew Perry) agreeing to allow Joey to conduct their wedding ceremony.
Lots happened behind the scenes between seasons and early on in the seventh year of the hit comedy, leaving audiences speculating that this might be the last. Perry became seriously ill again, and returned looking more emaciated than eve r. Cox regained weight, but despite finishing Scream 3 happily, things were already rocky with David Arquette. Much was made in the press about Aniston marrying Brad Pitt, of course, but the real news (allaying fans' fears) was NBC's expensive renewal of the cast for two years at $750,000 per episode each (more than six times their previous increase). On-screen, at least there was Chandler and Monica's engagement lasting the whole year, despite predictable ups and downs (eg: "T.O.W. The Truth About London" revealing that Monica fancied Joey). By the time we finally get to "T.O.W. Chandler's Dad" (Kathleen Turner), it seems inevitable that the two-part finale will be an insane mess--but with a happy-ish ending. Sure enough, "T.O.W. Chandler and Monica's Wedding" features Gary Oldman joining in the chaos as Chandler repeatedly goes missing. Other star-turns in the year were Seinfeld's Jason Alexander as a suicidal Office Manager, Susan Sarandon as soap queen bitch Jessica Lockhart, Denise Richards as one of Ross and Monica's endless number of cousins and Winona Ryder as a surprise old friend, prompting "T.O.W. Rachel's Big Kiss". But perhaps the most telling instalment of this weirdly atmospheric year was "T.O.W. They All Turn Thirty". It suggested that maybe the Friends are all getting too old to carry on living their frivolous lives the same way after all. Paul Tonks

My personal favourite episode here is "The One Where They All Turn Thirty". When the show began, the cast were all twenty-somethings. This episode marks thier move toward the big 3-0. Thier reactions to such a momentous occasions are predictably hillarious - purchasing sport cars and getting outrageously hammered are how some of the Friends try and cope with thier rapidly dissapearing youth. Other highlights here include a suphurb guest appearance from Susan Sarrandon on "The One With Joey's New Brain" in which Joey's role on corny soap Days of our Lives takes a ridiculous turn.
Overall, this is a fab collection. If you can't afford the pricey boxsets, and you just want a few episodes from the later seasons to enjoy than this DVD is as good as any. The already mentioned "Where They Turn Thirty" episode is simply not to be missed. Truly hillarious.
The funniest one is the one with the truth about london - Monica and Chandler lets Joey perform their wedding - and you know theres going to be some hiccups - or it wouldn't be friends. But everything turns out fine in the end, as it always does, and that is what is brilliant about friends - it is real to life and you never stop laughing. An absolute must-buy for all friends fans - and if you've never seen it before, this is a great one to begin loving them.
