Don't listen to anyone else, this DVD is just as fab as the others. I love Friends and i'm very sad that there will be no more but this dvd reminds us how funny it is. The one where Rachel has her baby is great and she even looks a bit sweaty (not like Phoebe when she had the triplets!)and Bamboozle is hilarous. Sit back in your barkerlounger and enjoy!!
episode 17 The One With The Tea Leaves---Joey has been hiding from Rachel, so she invents a problem at work ("My boss wants to buy my baby!") to draw him into conversation. Phoebe's tea leaves tell her that she's going to meet the man of her dreams, except that the man she meets is a nightmare. Later on though, she does meet a nice guy. Ross tries to retrieve his favorite shirt from Mona's, interrupted when she returns home with a date. episode 18 The One In Massapequa ------Everybody prepares to go out to Long Island for the elder Gellers' 35th wedding anniversary party. Monica wants to write a toast to make everybody cry like Ross's toasts do. Ross and Rachel discover that his parents have told people they're married. Ross describes how he would propose to Rachel, and she seems intrigued. Phoebe invites her new boyfriend, Parker, who is extremely enthusiastic. episode 19 The One With Joey's Interview-----Joey prepares for an interview with Soap Opera Digest, although he's afraid of appearing stupid, so he enlists his friends to make sure things go well. During the interview, he reminisces about his past acting experiences, what he does in his spare time, eating and exercising right, his friends, his homosexual tendencies, and his romantic life. episode 20 The One With The Baby Shower-----Rachel panics during her baby shower when she realizes how totally unprepared she is to care for an infant, and reluctantly goes along with her icy mother Sandra's plans to move in and help out-which hardly makes roommate Ross jump for joy. Meanwhile, as Monica tries to atone for forgetting to invite Sandra, an exhausted Chandler and Ross help Joey prepare for his audition as a new game show host by playing the befuddling game over and over. full of laughs galore specially when playing bambozzle!
It was difficult to see how Friends could continue, now the twenty-somethings have become thirty-somethings. After all, they couldn't go on with their will-they won't-they storylines and the actors are all busy with their Hollywood careers. Well, Rachel and Ross are still in that phase, but the storylines of Rachel's pregnancy and Monica and Chandler's relationships have shifted it along into another, rather different stage. They're still as funny as ever and I'll definitely keep watching! Great to see another series is coming out, let's hope the fun continues!
I used to love this show. Its blend of comfortable and comforting relationships and great timing from a little known cast was not ground breaking but was throughly polished and enjoyable. These days the formula is tired, the script weak and the cast self-absorbed and flat. Now I wish someone would just put this baby out to grass before we forget how good it used to be. Not that there's much chance of that, as Friends will be repeated more than MASH.
