Editorial Reviews

The eighth season of Friends picks up just moments after Monica and Chandler said, "I do." But the focus of this season is firmly on Rachel's pregnancy, as the story progresses from fatherhood revelations in "The One with the Red Sweater" and "The One Where Rachel Tells..." toward complicated new feelings for Rachel, Ross, and Joey, culminating in the maternity ward two-parter "The One Where Rachel Has a Baby." But it's not all Rachel's pregnancy story. Standalone highlights include "The One with the Rumor" in which the "We Hate Rachel" club started in high school by Ross and a certain Mr. Jennifer Aniston (an uncredited Brad Pitt) is revealed; while "The One with Monica's Boots" has Monica and Chandler arguing over finances when Phoebe and Ross are arguing over the attentions of Sting's wife, Trudie Styler (cameoing as herself). Relationship complications fall upon Phoebe as "The One with the Tea Leaves" hooks her up with a stellar cameo from Alec Baldwin. "The One with Joey's Interview" has Matt LeBlanc in top form preparing to be interviewed by Soap Opera Digest. But time starts to tick faster for everyone in "The One Where Rachel Is Late," as Joey's WWI movie finally arrives, but is overshadowed by the wait for Rachel's overdue arrival. Naturally it's all build-up to the cliffhanger finale and a final emotional surprise. --Paul Tonks

Product Description

Delve into the hearts and minds of six friends living in New York City as they explore the anxieties and absurdities of true adulthood. This smart, sophisticated series offers a hilarious take on dating and working in the big city. As Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross realize, the search for happiness often seems to turn up more questions than answers. But while they look within for fulfillment, they also look out for one another during this exciting time when everything seems possible--as long as they've got Friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh God! Finally The Day Will Come August 25, 2004
By Zach
I have to start out by saying that, yes, I'm an obsessive fan of Friends. I have been checking this website EVERY single day since season 7 was released hoping and praying that season 8 would show up, and after what has seemed like eternity, I just turned on the computer and found out that season 8 of Friends will be released on November 9th!!! I have to admit that season 7 is one of the worst seasons of Friends. It's pretty much just a long, drawn-out planning of Chandler and Monica's wedding. Season 8 is much better, where we start out by finding out that Rachel is pregnant and end with the birth of baby Emma, while following the first year of Monica and Chandler's marriage. Let me give you a quick run down of season 8:

The One After "I Do" - The group finds out Rachel is pregnant and Chandler reveals his two left feet.

The One With The Red Sweater - Everyone finds out that Ross is the father of Rachel's baby, except Ross himself.

The One Where Rachel Tells - Ross Finds out he's the father

The One With The Video Tape - Ross shows the gang the videotape of him and Rachel having sex to determine who pursued whom.

The One With Rachel's Date - Ross is uneasy finding out Rachel is going on a date while pregnant with his baby.

The One With The Halloween Party - Pheobe meets Ursula's fiance (Sean Penn)and ross dresses up as "Spudnik"

The One With The Stain - Sean Penn leaves Ursula for Pheobe and Joey puts up a nursery so Rachel will stay at his place.

The One With The Stripper - Monica orders a stripper for Chandler's belated b-day and she turns out to be a hooker.

The One With The Rumor - Brad Pitt guest stars on the thanksgiving episode with the "I hate Rachel" club from HS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Winning Season October 29, 2004
The eighth season of Friends finds the series rebounding strongly from a couple of good, but not great years. The series started picking up near the end of season seven with Monica (Courtney Cox) & Chandler's (Matthew Perry) wedding and the cliffhanger of one of the girls being pregnant. Season eight opens with the wedding reception in progress and it is discovered that Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) is the one pregnant. Rachel's pregnancy is the main storyline for the season. It is determined that Ross (David Schwimmer) is the father and this creates complications with Joey (Matt Le Blanc) who after living with Rachel develops feelings for her. The season's finale episode where Rachel finally has the baby has gone down as one of the best, if not the best episode, in the series' history. There are other hilarious episodes along the way including one where Chandler finds the soothing qualities of a bath with scented oils, one where Rachel tells Joey her boss is trying to buy her baby and Ross tries to retrieve his favorite shirt from his ex-girlfriend's apartment, the one where Joey & Rachel go on a date and Monica gets Chandler a Ms. Pac Man machine and the annual Thanksgiving episode in which Ms. Aniston's real life husband Brad Pitt guest stars as a fellow classmate and friend of Ross' from high school who started the We Hate Rachel club in high school. Other big guest stars include Sean Penn & Alec Baldwin. This was the only year that Friends would win the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series and Ms. Aniston won the Best Actress Emmy for her work.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Season Of The Growing up August 29, 2004
It's finally coming : the next season of Friends on DVD !! And this November will see the 8th Season release !

I'm a fan of the show and to be honest, season 8 is not my favorite season, but it's still a very good one because.... come on... it's Friends we're talking about !

Not my favorite season, nevertheless a season of the growing up mechanism for the 6 Friends (season 8 is truly the first season where all the Friends start to grow up and the situations start to change and evolve) : Rachel's pregnancy makes her evolve and we're getting far away from the 1st season spoiled Rachel; Monica and Chander experience their 1st year as a married couple, an important step in a couple's life; Ross change his behavior towards Rachel when he learns he's the father of her child and a Ross / Rachel reunion is evoked... Weird because, at the same time, episode 12 of the season features a storylyne involving a brand new, surprising couple : Rachel and Joey. A relationship that will become the key to this season's cliffhanger as well as the whole season 9, including its cliffganger and that will eventually end at the beginning of the 10th [and final] season.

This relationship truly marks Joey and makes his character really evolve as well, and for the first time ever, we discover a Joey really in love with somebody.

Although a lot of fans were against this unexpected relationship and feelings betwen Rachel and Joey (mostly the Ross/Rachel fans), I'm a fan that found this storyline really interresting and it's a plot that showed us that the writers were really inventing, plus they really well succeeded to include that in the show.

About the DVD set; sounds really nice (will be equally the same quality as the other seasons's sets).
