Not for the Super Fans
, January 30, 2013
This review is from: Friends: The Complete Series [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
You could say I'm a big fan. I've had the entire DVD series for years - my husband actually ripped them for me so I could watch it from our media server (it's easier/faster than dealing with discs). I watch Friends every single day - it's on right now! When my husband heard that Friends was coming out on Blu-ray he surprised me with this HD version boxed set and I was so freaking excited I can't even begin to describe my glee (but there was a lot of shrieking)! But I started noticing something was off about my episodes. Little parts or scenes, and quotes that I remember... were missing. I thought it was my memory, that they were on another episode or something. But there's this ONE quote I was positive was in S4 E2 because it had sparked a whole conversation between my husband and me that had led to us watching Star Trek (his favorite show) which I had NEVER seen before (yeah, I know) but it's now my new favorite show. But that small snip of a scene was gone! Just poof! So I came on here to see if anyone else had noticed any "cuts" and I found I was not alone and it wasn't just one but a tons of cuts! I am so, so, so, bummed about this. For the super fans of this show (who know every line, every scene) this is a huge no-no. We would rather watch the standard (aka "fuzzy") edition than miss out on those great one-liners.
- The missing bit I am talking about is where Rachel is trying to make Ross angry by saying things he doesn't agree with. -
Rachel: Jurassic Park could happen.
(Ross wants to say something)
Rachel: And you know what? Actually, I do think Kirk was smarter than Spock.
(Ross wants to say something again, but just slowly leaves)
Rachel and Chandler giggle.
Chandler: You were kidding about the Kirk-Spock-thing, though right?
