Editorial Reviews

Product Description

One of television's top-ranked series and the recipient of numerous Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations, "Friends" is a smart, sophisticated comedy that looks into the hearts and minds of a group of friends living in New York.

Amazon.com

This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. As its ratings following the tragic events of September 11, 2001, illustrated, Friends has matured into television's most beloved comfort show. The peerless ensemble--Jennifer Aniston, a pre-Arquette Courtney Cox, Emmy winner Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer--makes a lasting first impression in the first season's 24 episodes, which are presented chronologically on four discs. The perky "Pilot" introduces unlucky-in-love Monica, runaway bride Rachel, sad sack Ross, New Age ditz Phoebe, wise guy Chandler, and womanizer Joey. The focus of the first season is Ross's unrequited love for Rachel, but we have these moments to remember: the arrival of Marcel the monkey ("The One with the Monkey"); Monica, Rachel, and Phoebe's "cleansing ritual" ("The One with the Candy Hearts"); the escalating game of shower peek-a-boo ("The One with the Boobies"); Joey as Al Pacino's butt double ("The One with the Butt"); Ross taking lessons from Joey in how to "talk dirty" ("The One with the Stoned Guy"); former "Must-See TV" stars Helen Hunt and George Clooney ("The One with Two Parts"); and Chandler spilling the beans to Rachel about Ross's feelings for her ("The One Where Rachel Finds Out"). Though its devoted fans can recite these episodes chapter and verse, Friends maintains its sparkle through repeat viewings, a testament to the sharp writing as well as the cast's lightning-in-a-bottle chemistry and lived-in performances. The episodes are presented uncut and extended, with previously unseen dialogue and scenes. And those who hate Friends and would like to drown the characters in the opening credits' fountain are directed to the episode "The One with the Boobies," in which guest star Fisher Stevens hilariously nails the "dysfunctional group dynamic ... co-dependent, emotionally stunted, sitting in your stupid coffeehouse and you're all like, 'Define me, define me.'" Among the set's special features are an informative "Pilot" episode commentary by the show's creators, who at one point reveal that Monica was originally conceived as a Janeane Garafalo type (how's that for a road not traveled?). More obsessed fans can take a virtual tour of coffee shop Central Perk, the center of the Friends universe, or match wits with the "How Well Do You Know Your Friends?" trivia quiz. --Donald Liebenson

3. The One With The Thumb: Phoebe's bank mistakenly credits her account, but her attempts to fix the situation only bring her more money, as well as a soda with a thumb floating in it. Meanwhile, Chandler teaches Joey how to smoke.
4. The One With George Stephanopoulos: Joey and Chandler invite Ross to a hockey game for his birthday, but his nose gets broken by a flying puck and the guys spend the night in the hospital. Meanwhile, the girls discuss life and guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its Friend-tastic!!!! April 15, 2002
By Raj
Format:DVD
Where do I start? F.R.I.E.N.D.S is absolutely the best comedy show ever! I'm very pleased that they are FINALLY releasing the whole of season 1 on dvd :) True, they did release the"Best Of" series but those are just a few of the many hilarious episodes of the show. Now with the release of the "Complete Season" ones, we can really enjoy the funny day-to-day lives of Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe.
Started in September 1994, Friends have come a long way nearly completing its 8th season this may and the show ending with its 9th and final season. Along with the show's terrific cast, Jennifer Aniston as Rachel Greene, Courteney Cox as Monica Geller, Lisa Kudrow as Phoebe Buffay, Matt LeBlanc as Joey Tribbiani, Matthew Perry as Chandler Bing and David Schwimmer as Ross Geller, we have seen their make ups, break ups, friendship and relationships with tons of laughter. The first season however does not deal with much seriousness until the end of the season, which I won't tell you ;). The cast also look completly different then than how they look now, and it's interesting to see how the show first hit off.
The Complete Season 1 dvd edition of F.R.I.E.N.D.S consists of 24 episodes in a 4 dvd disk set, which are :
01- The One Where Monica Gets A Roommate
02- The One With The Sonogram At The End
03- The One With The Thumb
04- The One With George Stephanopoulos
05- The One With The East German Laundry Detergent
06- The One With The Butt
07- The One With The Blackout
08- The One Where Nana Dies Twice
09- The One Where Underdog Gets Away
10- The One With The Monkey
11- The One With Mrs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-Have for Friends fans August 24, 2002
Format:DVD
This is a great collection for everyone who loves FRIENDS. It contains all episodes from the first season and most have additional footage that you cannot see on tv. The special features could be better but there is a trivia quiz, an interactive look into Central Perk, Friends of Friends (clips of guest stars on Friends), and commentary by the show's creators. Here are the descriptions for the episodes that is given on the inside of the box:
The Pilot- Monica and the gang introduce Rachel to the "real world" after she leaves her finacé at the altar.
The One with the Sonogram at the end- Ross finds out his estranged lesbian wife and her girlfriend are going to have his baby.
The One with the Thumb- Phoebe discovers a human thumb floating in her can of soda and gets compensation of $7,000.
The One with George Stephanopoulos- The girls spy on the sexy politician across the street.
The One with the East German Laundry Detergent- Ross and Rachel wash their dirty laundry in public!
The One with the Butt- Joey finally gets a film role as a stand-in for Al Pacino's butt.
The One with the Blackout- During a power outage, Rachel falls for the owner of a lost kitten, a dark, attractive Italian guy. Meanwhile, Chandler is trapped in an automated-teller vestibule with a gorgeous model.
The One Where Nana Dies Twice- Ross and Monica go to the bedside of their dead grandmother, who momentarily returns to life. Chandler questions his sexual persona when a colleague wants to arrange a date for him- with another guy!
The One Where Underdog Gets Away- Monica plans a lovely, quiet Thanksgiving feast in her apartment but her plans go awry.
