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.


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

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.

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).

The Friends season-by-season collections on DVD have been fantastic! Season 8 showed a natural and very realistic progression in the lives of Monica, Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe. Episodes 171-194 covered the first year of Monica and Chandler's married life together, Rachel finding out she was pregnant with Ross's baby, Joey showing some maturity as he deals with his deepening feelings for Rachel, and Phoebe still trying to find her true love (boyfriends included guest stars Sean Penn and Alec Baldwin).

We had watched our "Friends" transition from their 20's into their 30's and came to know and love them even more in Season 8. We could sense the end was coming though--we thought it would be Season 9 but were treated to an additional (although shortened) Season 10.

Season 8 wasn't all just growing up and getting serious though. Hysterical highlights from this year included Rachel crying out "I don't see it!" when trying to spot her baby on the sonogram, Chandler's claw hand after playing Ms. Pac-Man for hours, finding out Monica's secret - her closest full of junk in her otherwise obsessively-clean apartment, and Chandler discovering the joys of a scented bubble bath.

Seasons 5, 6, and 7 were released just a few months apart from each other, and I was hoping Warner Bros. would continue on the fast-track with seasons 8, 9, and 10 so I could finally complete my collection. It's been an agonizing summer of waiting for news of Season 8's release date (checking Amazon every day waiting for the announcement). Can't believe we still have to wait until November, but hopefully we'll get a Christmas treat and be able to buy Seasons 9 and 10 before 2005 arrives.
