The fifth season of FRIENDS is probably one of their most entertaining seasons made ever!!! This season contains a lot of funny moments and shows a clear development of relationships between the characters as well. Whether it be Phoebe giving birth to the triplets or Ross moving into the ugly naked guy's apartment, Rachel avoiding to put the eyedrops for her infection or Joey getting a job at Caesar's in Vegas, this season is fun-filled and very entertaining. We also get to see how the relationship between Chandler and Monica develop, from the first episode to the cliffhanger episode at the very end :). Here is a list of the episodes in this season:
01.The One After Ross Says Rachel
02.The One With All The Kissing
03.The One Hundredth
04.The One Where Phoebe Hates PBS
05.The One With The Kips
06.The One With The Yeti
07.The One Where Ross Moves In
08.The One With The Thanksgiving Flashbacks
09.The One With Ross's Sandwich
10.The One With The Inappropriate Sister
11.The One With All The Resolutions
12.The One With Chandler's Work Laugh
13.The One With Joey's Bag
14.The One Where Everybody Finds Out
15.The One With The Girl Who Hits Joey
16.The One With The Cop
17.The One With Rachel's Inadvertent Kiss
18.The One Where Rachel Smokes
19.The One Where Ross Can't Flirt
20.The One With The Ride Along
21.The One With The Ball
22.The One With Joey's Big Break

This season great episodes. One of my favorites, TOW Everyone Finds Out. The Monica and Chandler secret relationship was a brillant idea and funny to watch. The finale is one of the best with drunk Ross and Rachel. Joey with his hand twin. Monica and Chandler thinking about marriage. And Phoebe gambling and trying to avoid a person who is trying to get her jackpot.

You have to admire the symmetry of "Friends: The Complete Fifth Season," which opens with Ross getting married and ends with Ross getting married. It reminds me of "Gone With the Wind," which begins with Scarlet pining for a man she cannot have and ends the same way. However, the key difference is that Monica and Chandler are a lot more fun than Ashley and Miss Melly ever were, that is for sure. For that reason Season Five is important in the "Friends" chronology, because it begins the second half of the series, which is operationally defined by the fact that as this point the Monica-Chandler relationship is suddenly transformed from a joke in the finale from the previous season into a driving force for both the season and the series. Even though we are now starting the final half of the final season, I think a lot of "Friends" fans are rooting more for Monica to adopt a baby (if not for Monica to actually be pregnant), then they are at this point for Ross and Rachel to finally end up together for the final time. While not as good as the fourth season, this one once again shows that having multiple story arcs for most of the characters is what works best for the series.Read more ›

The fifth season of friedns is by far my favorite season of friends!!! The season starts out with Chandler and Monica hiding their relationship from their friends and ending up at the altar in Vegas, Ross saying Rachel's name at his wedding and later getting a bitter divorce.Pheobe gives birth to her brothers three precious triplets and dates Gary the cop. Rachel confesses her love for Ross adn later dates brefly dates Danny. Joey gets his "Big Break" when he gets lead role in a movie, and in the Season finale Ross and Rachel end up married in Vegas! This is a season you dont want to miss!!!

I know Friends gets reviewed by series on its weaknesses more than its strenghts these days but Series 5 really is one of the show's strongest seasons. I can't condense this into less than 1000 words but watching the plot arc unfold as the Friends find out about Chandler and Monica's burdening relationship after the disastrous and dramatic wedding between Ross and Emily, the series had plenty of fodder for some laffs....from Chandler's fake work laugh to Rachel tormenting herself over her love for Ross as he despairs over a 2nd failed marriage, the Friends give plenty of laughs as well as tears. By now they have become our Friends...we know and love them. Some tremendous classic scenes though....the One Where Everyone Finds Out is still to date my favourite Friends episode with loads of physical comedy as Phoebe tries to outflirt Chandler while Ross talks-up Ugly Naked Guy to get his apartment, it makes this series worthwhile. The 80s flashback is also a hoot for its sheer visual comedy of Rachel's nose, Monica as obese and Ross and Chandler in their Miami Vice outfits. Kudos also to the ball-throwing episode and the inside-out cat....Jennifer Aniston proves her acting prowess beyond a shadow of a doubt....fantastik comic range. Wonderful series. While Sex and the City, Will and Grace for example may now have outshadowed Friends in many ways, this series testfies the wondrousness of Friends and its place int he cult comedies of our era. I have all 9 Series to date on DVD and for one will miss these Friends when they leave us later next year. A series well worth relishing
