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.
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'.

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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?Read more ›

Great set, lots of video extras, the box is an awkward size/length so it doesn't fit on a standard media shelf but not a huge problem.Published 2 days ago by Andy

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
