"Friends" is a worldwide super hit. Nobody can deny the cultural phenomenon the programme has become in it's ten years on the TV screens of millions of fans the world over. This particular DVD contains four great episodes from one of the show's best seasons, it's seventh. In addition to four great and reliably hillarious episodes, you get bonus scenes that were deleted from the broadcasted versions and that can only be found on the DVD. These are great and if you have already seen the episodes here, add a new aspect to them for you to enjoy. 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.
Series 7 has got to be one of the best series so far, proving that the entire cast and crew are not past their sell by date! Episode 14 (The One Where They All Turn Thirty) is the funniest episode of the series. It follows the events of all the friends' thirtieth birthdays. What with Ross buying a cool sports car which then gets stuck between two other cars; Monica getting hammered and having to attend a formal party thrown by Chandler, and Joey unable to cope with the pressures of turning thirty, it really does turn out to be a hilarious episode (especially when the friends' attempt to free Ross' car - 'Just lift...and slide.') Also on the same video comes the hilarious episode 'The One With The Truth About London'. Although the main plot is very funny, (where Monica reveals who she really wanted to 'hook up with' in London), the sub-plot featuring Ross, Rachel and Ben is even more so, when Rachel teaches Ben some 'practical jokes'. The ending of this episode is hilarious, the culmination of some very, very funny episodes! I won't spoil it for you, but the video is most definately worth buying!
I am a huge fan of friends. I have read some other reviews on friends and i am sorry, but they are still going strong. This dvd features 'the one where they all turn thirty' Rachel turns thirty and everyone begins reminising about when they did. Hilarious plotlines. 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.
If i could recommend one DVD from series 7, this would be it! The episodes are extremely funny and the DVD comes with many minutes of extra footage on each episode. Its the sort of DVD you can watch over and over, and every time you watch it you'll be on the floor laughing. In one of the episode Rachael teaches ben (ross's son) lots of tricks to play on people, which create many comical moments. This had me laughing all the way through and the end joke is hysterical! This DVD is without a doubt a 'must have' for all friends fans!
Good but not great. This pretty much sums up this video. If you hav been a fan of the program since series1 you'll will probably love it (i do). If you haven't and are just beginning to watch FRIENDS i wouldn't recomend it as it will prevent you from watching again. There are many different story lines all of which are hillarious but can become tedious at times due to the long gaps in-between jokes or too many puns all cramed in at once. I would definatly recomend this to a fan of the series.
