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

We're finally getting Season 1! Here's a list of episodes you get with this set:
1. The One Where It All Began: Monica's old high school friend, Rachel, decides to move in with her after leaving her fiancé at the altar. Meanwhile, Ross takes an apartment in Monica's building to be closer to his friends, Chandler and Joey.
2. The One With The Sonogram At The End: Ross' ex-wife Carol tells him that she and her lover, Susan, plan to raise their baby together, but that he is invited to the sonogram. Meanwhile Monica prepares for dinner with her parents.
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. The One With The East German Laundry Detergent: Monica and Joey try to break up Joey's ex-girlfriend Angela's current relationship, Chandler and Phoebe try to break up with their dates and Ross teaches Rachel how do to laundry.
6. The One With The Butt: Chandler starts dating a beautiful woman, who is not only married, but also has another boyfriend, a situation which isn't as fun as he expects it to be. Meanwhile, Joey is cast in a movie, as Al Pacino's "butt double."
7. The One With The Blackout: During a blackout in New York City, Chandler is locked in an ATM with beautiful supermodel Jill Goodacre. Meanwhile, the gang converges on Monica's apartment to tell scary stories and talk about sex.

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.

Reviewing the programs: I'm not a fan of Friends, but i had watched many episodes in WBTV and they're really fun (even in it's 10th season).
If you don't know who are the friends, they are Ross (David Schwimmer), a noble guy that is in love with Rachel Green (Jeniffer Aniston), she is the stereotiphycal girl that get all that she wants from her dad (until suddendly, decides to scape from her house and live at her own spense); Chandler (Mattew Perry), the insecure and sarchastic guy that is looking the love of his life, Monica (Cortney Cox), that in her childhood was a fat and insecure girl, Phoebee (Lisa Kudrow) that is completely nuts, and Joey, he pretends to be an actor, but with poor results; Somehow we can identify with one of them.
Reviewing the DVD: This DVD collection has all of the 1st season episodes, and they are very funny, the audio and video are good (presented in full screen (this is not a movie, this is a TV program); in the extras section, you find and audio commentary in the pilot episode (sorry, no subtitles in the commentary), some featurettes like "inside Central Perk" and a trailer; in the language support, you get english audio track; english, french, spanish and korean subtitles; the episodes are longer than 30 minutes (i guess they indeed have new footage), there are no fades to black (where should be the commercials, maybe "The Simpsons" could learn something about this), an the play all option is great (you can forget where you leave your remote control!)
Maybe the only flaw is the price
If you want a good laugh or if you're a Friends fan, you'll love this collection
