Filled with mixed emotion this suitable ending to a great show is all too soon. Great episodes throughout but the viewer constantly has the feeling that the only one worth watching is the subtley named 'The Last One.' The DVD itself is one of the better friends boxsets with some interesting special features such as the hilarious outakes. Any person can clearly see that the tears in the episodes are real as this was such a wonderfull show filled with a great cast and crew. They will be sorely missed. Thiis DVD is a must have for anyone who enjoyed the show. Unmissable.
It's tragic that this terrific series has come to an end. However, since it's the last dvd set they have provided some extra features on the final disc to make everyone feel a little better. These include interviews with cast and crew, so you can find out what they really think of each other, but more importantly some hilarious out-takes. These prove Jennifer, Courtney, Lisa, the two Matts and David are just as amusing off set as they are on. I think Matt Le Blanc proves himself to be the funniest here, although it would be hard to pick a stand-out moment. I recommend watching the out-takes after you've seen the final episode. It's great for drying the tears!
The series had its off-moments, there is no denying that (TOW Joey speaks French was one of the less imaginative episodes in the history of the show; TOW Princess Consuela was not perfect either), but episodes like TOW the Stripper cries and the concluding extravaganza are all-time classics, which had us all reaching for the tissues: to wipe away tears of laughter and a choking feeling of pain. Someone described the separation anxiety of leaving Friends behind like "losing a limb". It is that, and so much more. Friends has been simply the best sitcom in the history of television and nothing else, even legends like Happy Days or Cheers, even come close.
This DVD Boxset is worth buying just for the extras! There's lots of behind the scenes info etc, but the best part by far is the 30 minutes of outtakes from all the past series! I don't think I've laughed so much for a long time! This DVD will definitely cheer up those cold winter evenings!
