Season 7: Lots happened behind the scenes between seasons and early on in the seventh year of the hit comedy, leaving audiences speculating this might be the last. Perry became seriously ill again, and returned looking more emaciated than ever. 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 TonksSee all Product description

The writers are finding it difficult to come up with new stuff, and who can blame them? How many more times can we see Monica freak out over a speck of dust, Chandler making sarcastic comments, Joey seduce endless good-looking girls, Phoebe making quirky remarks and Ross and Rachel breaking up (yet again)without it becoming tired?
Saying that, this volume is probably the best of series 7. Chandler's antics are still just about enough to raise a laugh, but I am glad in a perverse sort of way that Friends is ending at the end of series 8, because I want them to end on a high note. If you are going to buy this volume, just make sure you are buying it because you think it will be funny, not because Friends has an excellent reputation.
buy this, in fact buy them all!
whatever mood you are in, whoever you are with, or if you are alone, Friends is ideal to have a good old laugh to. it is excellent with your friends or to cheer yourself up or for a romantic cuddle with your other half!
buy it and be forever happy!
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.
