Product Description

In the 1994 comedy series on TV, Friends, Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), Ross Geller (David Schwimmer), Monica Geller (Courteney Cox), Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry) and Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) are all friends, living off of one another in the heart of New York. Over the course of eight years, this average group of buddies go through massive mayhem, family trouble, past and future romances, fights, laughs, tears and surprises as they learn what it really means to be a friend. This box set on DVD includes all 10 seasons of the hit comedy TV series.

Review

A good sitcom relies on strong jokes and characters, not a high concept, and Friends is obviously a huge example of that. It's about... friends. Being friends. And dating and stuff. But it benefited from some terrifically funny writing and the kind of cast chemistry you luck onto only once in awhile and in the process became one of TV's most popular comedies ever. --Eric Goldman, IGN

What helps Friends is that the show's creators have come up with a highly likable group of actors who are talented and charming, if not rip-roaringly funny. --Ken Parish Perkins, Chicago Tribune

No sitcom since Friends has touched it for comedy or cultural impact. The wait continues. --The Tv Critic

From the Manufacturer


'I’ll Be There for You'

One of the most popular TV comedy series of all time, Friends is the story of six 20-something buddies who are struggling to find their way through life in the city of New York. From fights and family troubles to romance, breakups, tears and surprises, this lovable group discovers what it truly means to be friends.

Trivia

Before the show was cast, Monica and Joey were originally intended to be the main love interest.

The orange sofa used in the Central Perk scenes was an old prop found in the basement of the Warner Bros studio.

Courteney Cox was first asked to play the role of Rachel, but after reading for the roles she convinced the casting directors to let her be Monica instead.

Matt LeBlanc, who plays Joey Tribbiani, speaks fluent French.

It was Lisa Kudrow’s real-life pregnancy that led to the story line of Phoebe Buffay being a surrogate for her brother’s triplets.

Meet the Cast

Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston)

Rachel and Monica reunite early in the series, and Monica takes the young, spoiled woman under her wing. Rachel’s on-again, off-again relationship with Ross is an ongoing story line.

Ross Geller (David Schwimmer)

Ross is a professional paleontologist, but only his good friend Chandler gives him the respect he feels he deserves. Ross’s love life is in constant upheaval, but he has always had feelings for Rachel.

Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry)

Chandler, Ross and Monica have known each other for years, and he’s Ross’ best pal. Even though Chandler is a successful data processor, the others have no clue what he does for a living.

Monica Geller (Courteney Cox)

A professional chef, compulsive neat freak and Ross’ younger sister, Monica goes through a series of failed relationships before realizing she’s in love with Chandler.

Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc)

A little dim-witted but lovable all the same, Joey is a wanna-be actor and perennial skirt-chaser. He shares an apartment with his best friend, Chandler.

Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow)

Phoebe is a free-spirited young woman with a very colorful past. She becomes part of the gang when she answers an ad Monica has posted for a roommate.

Gunther (James Michael Taylor)

Gunther is the manager in charge of the waiters at the Central Perk coffee shop where the gang hangs out. He has a passionate but unreturned crush on Rachel.

Janice (Maggie Wheeler)

Janice is Chandler’s on-again, off-again girlfriend. She’s best remembered for her nasally voice and use of the phrase, 'oh, my god'.

Format: DVD
Since I notice all the questions seem to concern the logistics of the set, that is the main thing I will address in this review, since you would have to be a resident of another planet to not know the story behind the series "Friends". Suffice it to say it is a classic comic treatment of what I have always called the "post-college adolescent phase" of life, which is roughly the ten years immediately following college graduation as you strike out on your own and try to find your place in life. It is the time in life when you are likely to have the best health, the most freedom, the most disposable income if not necessarily the most total income, and the most fun if you are fortunate enough to have people to share it all with. This phase ends when you "settle down" both career-wise and family-wise, and I always found Friends to track this time in life quite accurately and with both drama and great humor.

As for logistics, this collection fits in a sturdy red box that's less than a foot long. There are 40 DVDs containing 236 episodes that can be found inside. The Friends set just has two pieces of the box that comes together. Flipping the top up exposes the guts of the set consisting of 6 books, with one for each Friend. Thus there are only 6 books to hold the 10 seasons. Each book has a picture of the Friend, a number (1-6), and the episodes you can find in each case. The books flip open from the top, and each disc has its own pouch in the double-sided pages. Every disc has a different photo of the Friend, and they're all inserted into the pouches so that the photo is visible as you flip through the book. The disc number and episode numbers are also visible. The contents of the discs are the same as the previous sets, but they have new artwork.

Format: Blu-ray
I'm a huge fan of "Friends," in fact it's probably my favorite TV show of all time. Interestingly, I didn't start watching the show until it was in its 9th season. I dismissed it as a "chick show," but when I finally started catching re-runs when I was in college, it had me rolling! It was right at this point that they began releasing the full seasons on DVD. So every time a new season was released on DVD I went right out and bought it. The first time that I saw many of these episodes (probably 80% of the series) was on DVD. For those of you that don't know this, the DVDs actually contained longer episodes than what had been originally broadcast on NBC. Each 20-minute episode contained another 2 or 3 minutes of dialogue/story. And it wasn't excessive stuff that needed to be cut, many of my favorite lines in the show were in these extended scenes. In fact, when I go back and watch re-runs of the show now I can't believe how much of it is missing. I still love my DVDs though, special features and all! But when I watch them now on my 47" TV I notice that they look pretty rough. There's lots of pixelation and fuzziness, and the episodes aren't formatted for widescreen. Certain channels have been showing the episodes in HD and they look gorgeous! I thought to myself, "I would actually buy the whole series over again on Blu-Ray if it had all the extended episodes and bonus features from the standard DVD set."

When I learned that "Friends" was coming to Blu-Ray I was so excited, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Then I learned that this Blu-Ray boxed set would not contain the previously released extended episodes, but would instead have them as they appeared in the original NBC broadcast.

For fans of FRIENDS you will know what episode is below. For everyone else, the below lines from the script are from episode 809, season 8: The Rumor (The one with Brad Pitt at Thanksgiving). Everything with a star next to it will NOT be in the FRIENDS Blu-ray Broadcast version.

Phoebe: Turkey's are beautiful, intelligent animals!
Joey: No they're not! They're ugly and stupid and delicious! *Plus, eating them is like a tradition. It goes back to the very first Thanksgiving when the Indians sat down with the cowboys
*Rachel: Oh right... That's when they had that big rodeo at Plymouth Rock.

Ross: Uh actually, there was also that exchange student from Thailand but I don't think he knew what it was.
*Chandler: (sarcastically) You guys were cool.
Rachel: So Ross, we went out for two years, and you never told me you were in an I Hate Rachel club.
Will: You went out with her?! We had a pact!
Ross: That was in high school! It's not like it was binding forever.
Will: Then why did it have the word eternity in it?
*Joey: I'm thinking of joining an "I Hate Turkey Club"... although I do love a turkey club.

Rachel: Joey stop staring! There's nothing there! It's not true!
Joey: I'm afraid I'm gonna need proof. *C'mon, whip it out.

*Monica: (To Chandler and Phoebe) Alright, guys, could you help me with the dishes? There's a lot of pots and pans.
*Chandler: Oh honey I'd love to but the second game's about to start so... (starts to get up)
*Phoebe: (getting up with him) Oh yeah, the second game. More football for the Phoebster
*Monica: Who's playing?
*Chandler: Los Angeles
*Monica: Wow, last time I checked, Los Angeles didn't have a football team.
*Chandler: Did I say Los Angeles?

Amazing that no one has answered this. I have the Blu-ray set and all the early reviews were critical yet I can find no one who says if this new DVD set has the longer versions. If not then the red box complete series might be worth picking up.

Differences in Friends Boxed Sets?
The Red box set is the older version of the complete series release. It's split up in 6 booklets; one for each "friend" which I found crumby since there are 10 seasons. It pretty much put 1 and 1/2 seasons in each booklet. It also has a collectible booklet with descriptions of all 236... Read More
