Celebrate the 15 year anniversary of one of TV's most successful show ever with this Friends Season 1 -10 box set, featuring more extras than you can shake a smelly cat at.
Popular American sitcom Friends first appeared on our screens back in 1994, to little fanfare. The show followed the lives of six twenty-something singles--Monica (Courtney Cox), Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), Joey (Matt LeBlanc), Ross (David Schwimmer), and Chandler (Matthew Perry)--who occupied a trendy New York loft apartment. These were essentially six beautiful people who had probably never known a hard day's work in their lives, and whose every utterance was a well-crafted witticism. But despite their idealized lifestyles and perfectly coiffed hairdos, there was something annoyingly endearing about them. Viewers could easily relate to their struggles with work, sex, and relationships because these were universal struggles - albeit heightened for comedic effect. From early on it was clear that Friends had successfully tapped into the zeitgeist of its time, and now, 10 series down the line, the show's broad appeal continues to live on in popular culture. This box set contains every episode from season 1 to 10.

Box is solid card, with disc housed in a digipak type packaging. There are plenty of extras, trivia and bloopers along with some interesting behind the scenes documentaries. All- In-all a cracking boxset of a cult tv show.
The quality of this box set is amazing, the transfer has been done from the original negative’s to a high definition wide screen image, with 5.1 audio.
There is also 20 hours of bonus footage, 4 hours of of new extras, and a 64 page episode guide.
- These are extended episodes, I have a very good memory and know where scenes exist that didn't before. I'd like to watch the originals back as I'm sure one entire ending and one entire intro are completely different. Some of the "extras" are good, others taint the series a bit. "The One With The Football", one of my favourite episodes, has some very unneccessary additional material that doesn't make it funnier. But that said, the ending where Monica and Ross throw the "Gellar Cup" down the trash chute, Phoebe is at the other end and then Ross has run down there is quite a good ending.
- Picture Quality is unfortunately a bit grainy, it might not be helped by a high quality TV picture. This may be, as others have suggested, trying to squeeze 5-7 episodes on a DVD and other features. It depends exactly how long each episode is, hard to say with the extra extended bits, but anything more than three hours to a DVD is bound to have quality issues. I'd rather have paid a bit extra and got more DVDs, but can you tell if something at this price is just a bargain or that price for a reason? Paying more doesn't necessarily make it better.
The comedy itself is brilliant, although I'm always apprehensive when it comes to different versions of series/films I'm used to. The main leads are all good, Ross and his sister Monica, Chandler and his room mate Joey, Rachel who knows Ross and Rachel from high school and comes to live with Monica, and Phoebe their weird and wonderful friend who busks, massages and is generally 'different'. The secondary characters are good, although there are some worrying inconsistencies within the 'history' and indeed different people play the same part - although they don't really spoil the series as much as a change in the leads would have.
If you want cracking episodes some if not most of the Thanksgiving episodes are brilliant. "The One With The Football" where Ross and Monica can't play because their mom told them they couldn't, or the one with Brad Pitt, or the one with Christina Applegate as Rachel's unwelcome guest of a sister. There are some fairly ordinary episodes, but not that many and all very watchable nonetheless. My biggest worry on this was watching 10 series and around 240 episodes, not something you can do in a hurry.
If you don't buy this boxset, buy a Friends boxset.
