An excellent collection of what are the four funniest episodes from series 9. The one where Monica sings, is a great mix of hillarity from Monica, Phoebe and Mike, and serious, but still somehow funny, developments in Rachel and Ross's relationship. Chandler shows off another intriguing female quality when he plucks Joey's eyebrows. This volume also has on it the fab episode The one with the boob job, it shows off the fantastic comic writing and acting perfectly in only a way that Friends can pull off!!!! Fabulous entertainment all round, enjoy it!!

Episodes 1-4 of Series 5 are indeed comedy classics - the aftermath of Ross saying Rachel in the wedding vows is brilliantly put together, with great interaction with famous British actors such as Jennifer Saunders. The suspense and tension is well contrasted with the other Friends' lighter comments made by characters such as Joey and Phoebe. The surrogacy issue is dealt with sensitively, and despite the fact that 'Friends' is a comedy, the writers have made room for a tearful and moving end with no inappropriate comic interjections, which would spoil what is a serious subject so it is not ridiculed or demeaned in any way. There is an extremely funny episode dealing with Chandler and Monica's secret affair and entwined with it is the issue of deceit and frienship which is portayed well. The first four episodes herald a gem of comedy the rest of the episodes in Series 5 are no disappointment.

This has to be the best Friends video ever.All of the 4 episodes on this are classics.The scenes in the 1st episode where Pheobe "cuts" Monica's hair are side-splitting,and when the gang meet Julie!When Rachel finds out about Monica's friendship with Julie,she reacts as if Monica has had an affair,and the dialogue between them is fantastic.in the 3rd episode where Mr Heckles(the grumpy neighbour)dies,he leaves all of his things to Monica and Rachel,and the gang find he owned some very interesting belongings...!In the last episode,fans will be stunned to realise that Pheobe has a husband,but there is a twist to that story!The scene where they both scratch their chickenpox with ovengloves is brilliant viewing!Overall,if you're looking for any Friends video to buy,make sure it's this one.

After the dramatic episodes of previuos series of Friends could series nine be as hilarious as the previous eight. the answer is yes.
This series starts off with the episode 'The One Where No One Proposes' This episode is the aftermath of Emma's Birth were rachel thinks shes engagde to Joey much to Ross' dismay. It also includes scenes where Chandler and Monica are trying to get pregnant much to Monica's fathers delight. He gives them tips on how to get pregnant.
In 'The One Where Emma Cries' Rachel learns the hard way that you shouls never wake a sleeping baby. Rachel starts to feel that she isnt any good as a mother and its up to Monica to bring her hopes up. Also in this episode Chandler agrees after falling asleep in a meeting to move to Tulsa much Monica's dismay. She doesnt want to go and gets a job in Manhattan so she doesnt have to. Also Ross has a fight with Joey over his accidental propsal to Rachel. Ross breaks his thumb leading Joey to believe that Chandler doesnt not know how to fight.
In 'The One with The paediatrician' Rachel discovers that Ross still sees his paediatrician after she gets fired by her own because she rings that up all hours of the day and night. Joey and Phoebe arrange dates for one another which ends in disaster when Joey forgets and picks a complete stranger from the coffee house called Mike.
In the final episode on this video 'The One with The Sharks' Monica believes on a trip to Tulsa to see Chandler that her husband is into shark movies. Phoebe and Mike become an item after the disaster that was their first date. Joey becomes concerned that a girl he once slept with doesnt remember him and Phoebe reflects on why she has never been in a long term relationship.
The four episodes on this video are excellent. they continue the Friends humour that is shown in all of the preceding series. This video is a must for all Friends Fans.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 30 March 2016
A couple seasons of Friends revolved heavily around the relationship between two of the characters. No, I’m not talking about Rachel and Ross but about Monica and Chandler. Season seven was one of those seasons. Yes, the other characters still get plenty of screen time, and the laughs are still plentiful.

Season seven opens moments after season six ended with the proposal. That’s right, Monica (Courteney Cox) and Chandler (Matthew Perry) are engaged! As a result, much of the season revolves around the two of them and the plans for the wedding, especially near the end of the season as we gear up for the season finale wedding. And those episodes are wonderful. We get plenty of laughs from control freak Monica while also seeing just how much this couple cares for each other. There are some truly touching moments between them here.

Season six was also one of the few seasons not to end with a Ross (David Schwimmer) and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) cliffhanger. But the writers quickly fix that in the season opener as Rachel suggests they sleep together one last time. The rumors that swirl around as a result upset Monica who wants that night to be about her engagement. But no, the two of them aren’t about to really get back together since Rachel quickly falls for her new assistant, Tag (guest star Eddie Cahill). Elsewhere over the course of the season, Joey’s new cable show bombs, and he winds up back on Days of Our Lives when his character gets a brain transplant and Phoebe’s apartment is ready after the fire from last season, but she moves back in alone when the wall making a second bedroom is taken out during the renovations.

But as I said earlier, everything leads up to the wedding in the season finale. We finally meet Chandler’s father, but then the groom gets cold feet. And someone learns they are pregnant before the final blackout of the season.

There aren’t quite as many ongoing storylines this season. There’s the wedding, Joey getting back on the soap, and Rachel’s relationship with Tag. Other than that, we have more standalone stories this year. But that’s okay because there are still plenty of laughs. As always, the Thanksgiving episode is wonderful as Ross’s big mouth gets him into trouble trying to name all 50 states. An episode where Joey and Ross are both dating the same woman also has some outstanding laughs. And in another episode, Ross, Monica, and Chandler start trying to out embarrass each other.

These are tempered by a number of subpar episodes. Some of these come from the characters acting stupidly for laughs. I know that embarrassment humor has been a staple of the series for years, but there seems to be more of it this year, and it leads to some very cringe worthy moments. And some of the episodes just don’t quite work, like this year’s Christmas episode, “The One with the Holiday Armadillo.” Another subpar episode is “The One with All the Cheesecake” which finds Chandler and Rachel stealing a neighbor’s delicious cheesecake. The only funny bit from “The One Where They’re Up All Night” involved Phoebe fighting with a fire alarm that won’t stop making noise.

February sweeps found Friends facing off with powerhouse Survivor, and to counteract that, NBC rolled out supersized episodes of their shows. These ran just a little longer than the traditional episodes ran, and we get that extra footage in the set. They also features some great guest stars such as Jason Alexander as the suicidal supply manager Phoebe calls and Susan Sarandon as an actress on Joey’s soap. The season features several appearances of Elliot Gould and Christina Pickles as Monica and Ross’s parents, and the season ends with Morgan Fairchild and Kathleen Turner guest starring as Chandler’s parents.

And of course, the regular cast does a great job with the material. While I am not a fan of all the writing, the cast still hits it out of the park each week.

The four DVD set contains all 24 episodes of the season in their native full frame and stereo sound. Extras include three audio commentaries (although the one on “Holiday Armadillo” is worth skipping) interviews with some of the notable guest stars, and a gag reel. Gunther’s preview on next season and the quiz about the wedding are completely skippable.

While this season isn’t the best of Friends, it still contains plenty of laughs. Fans of the show will enjoy watching these episodes over and over even if some of the best are behind us.

Although I believe this is the weakest out of all the Friends series', i still think it deserves a lot of credit as it is better than most other comedy shows around. I think that even at this point when friends was not at its best, it was still better than most of the competition.
Series 7 is basically the lead up to the wedding of Chandler and Monica and although it does have its enjoyable parts, examples being the episode at the library, it does not have the energy of the earlier series' or the comedy of 8,9 and 10. I personally think that series 2 and 4 are the best of the lot closley followed by the series' before number 7. I don't know what went wrong here, but it seemed like they struggled to think of interesting storylines in the build up to the wedding.
Negative points aside, I still think this is fantastic and deserves its place in your collection f you like friends. Remember, this is only my personal opinion as i know few people who prefer the later series' of friends. Overall i think if you are a collector of the friends dvds or you want to follow the storyline from beggining to end, this is a must. Otherwise, if you just want 1 or 2 of the boxsets i would go for series 2 to see the magnificent early comedy and series 8 or 9 to see how it is has developed after all those years.

This is definetally the best series of Friends yet! It's also the best DVD set! It features all 24 episodes of Series 7 in their original from PLUS on the reverse side of the DVD, it has every episode in a special edition form where they all include bonus footage, ranging from less than a minute of extra footage, to upwards of 8 minutes! The One With The Truth About London's special edition version contains over 8 minutes of exrta footage, and is completly different from the aired version, with even an extra subplot! Here's a quick run down of the season: Best Episode/ Moment: The One With Monia and Chandler's Wedding/ The HUGE suprise at the end of this episode, which will totally change 'Friends' in everyway! I won't spoil it for you!) Worst Episode: All were great this season, but The One Where They're Up All Night could have been improved, and it is better in the extended cut. Overall Rating: Best Season (Series) yet! All these episodes are greatly enhanced and this is a must buy for a friends fan!

This vid concludes Season Six with a crash, bang and wallop! The One With The Proposal (Parts One and Two) sees Chandler about to ask Monica to marry him when Richard (played by none other than Tom Selleck) turns up and spoils plans. Things get complicated when Richard also proposes to Chandler's girl. Who does she pick? Buy this vid to find out! Tom Selleck is not the only star to appear though. Bruce Willis of Die Hard and the recent Sixth Sense appears in the first three fun-filled eppys of the video. He is the father of Ross's student girlfriend and ends up dating Rachel. He's a very private guy though - so when Ms Green asks him to open up, their relationship ends when Paul starts to weep uncontrollably about his childhood. Phoebe and Joey also have plenty to do though - Joey adjusts to life as a TV star, while Phoebe begins to write another book and also finds time to help Chandler pick out a ring for Monica. These five (or four episodes, depending on how you look at it)are brilliant and end the season with style. I just hope Season Seven is as great as this...
