Introduction:

The show about six thirty something friends living in New York comes to an end in this deluxe four disc set of "Friends'" final season. This set boasts never-before seen footage and the extended version of the finale, plus special DVD bonus features. All 18 episodes (including the extended version of the series finale) are included here and it's a must have for fans.


Memorable Episodes / Notable Guest Stars:

Some of the must see episodes for the final season are: "The One After Joey and Rachel Kiss" in which the 9th season finale is wrapped up; "The One Where Ross Is Fine" in which Ross acts usually happy for Joey and Rachel after catching them kissing; "The One Where Rachel's Sister Baby-Sits" in which Rachel convinces her spoiled sister Amy to baby-sit; "The One with the Late Thanksgiving" in which Joey gets his head stuck in a door on Thanksgiving and everyone is late for Monica's dinner; "The One With the Birth Mother" in which Monica and Chandler travel to Texas to meet a pregnant woman who might give them her baby; "The One Where Estelle Dies" in which Joey's longtime agent, Estelle, dies; "The Last One" which ends the series.

Memorable guest appearances this season included Christina Applegate, Selma Blair, Jennifer Coolidge, Danny De Vito, Dakota Fanning, Anna Faris, Greg Kinnear, Paul Rudd and Aisha Tyler.


Packaging:

The package is a digipak in which you pull out another box and open it to reveal the four discs. There are four discs in total and contain 18 episodes. Disc one has the FRIENDS logo with a shot of the entire cast in a photo that represents their looks in the tenth year. Disc 2 features dual shots of Monica & Chandler. Disc 3 is the same design and showcases Joey and Phoebe. Disc 4 features the same design with Ross and Rachel. The color is different on each disc (Disc One is teal; Disc Two is purple; Disc Three is a maybe dark orange?). It's a nice design--simple and easy. The box itself is maroon (a deep red) in color and has the same type of design as the seasons 1-9 releases (the logo, and all six friends in their own boxes).


Menu Design and Navigation:

The main menu has the FRIENDS theme playing, but with no vocals. There is a PLAY selection, EPISODES selection that leads to a new menu listing the episodes to choose from; a SPECIAL FEATURES selection which takes you to a new listing where you can choose the special features located on the disc; and finally a LANGUAGES selection where you can choose whether you want subtitles or not in English, French or Spanish. It's a nice layout and easy to use.


Video and Audio Quality:

The video quality was fantastic, vibrant and colorful, as expected. The audio was pretty good as well, no real problems to be concerned with. Each episode usually runs between 23 and 25 minutes but several episodes are exceptions to that, such as the finale, and sometimes NBC offered an extended episode.


Special Features:

Note: all of the special features can be found on Disc 4 (except the commentary).

* "Friends Final Thoughts" - the cast and producers reflect during the final days at work and after series production ends

* Multiple seasons gag reel

* All New Matt LeBlanc Joey Joey Music Video

* "Friends of Friends" Video Guestbook - featuring interviews with Christina Applegate, Aisha Tyler and Paul Rudd


Final Comments:

Well, here it is the tenth and final season of Friends. Having reviewed seasons 8 and 9 prior, it is kind of bittersweet to end it all. I wasn't a major FRIENDS fan during its initial broadcast, but after seeing quite a few episodes (if not all of them from seasons 8-10, thanks to the DVDs), I have become a fan. The cast really clicks well with one another and the plotlines are extremely funny. Warner did an awesome job with these sets. There was always a great set of bonus features. I have to say Warner did a great job keeping up with the continuity, which makes it nice. Overall, a great set and again, it's sad to see it end.


Final Numbers (out of 5 stars - How our point system works)

Video Quality: 5/5
Audio Quality: 5/5
Special Features: 5/5
Menu Navigation: 4/5
Overall: 4/5
