Introduction:

Well, FRIENDS fans, this is the set for you! The complete series all in one nice box set--this set features 40 DVDs, all 236 episodes, and every bonus feature that was included on the regular season sets. FRIENDS debuted on NBC in 1994 and became a smash ratings hit, propelling all of its cast to various degrees of stardom. Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross were always there for each other. Now they're here for you in the complete 10-season set of FRIENDS. You can relieve each baby, wedding, and zany adventure all over again!


Memorable Episodes / Notable Guest Stars:

Over the span of 236 episodes ... there are just far too many to list! From the first episode to the last, all episodes are memorable. If you buy this set, you must be a die hard and you will think all are memorable anyway...right? And see how Rachel’s hair changed over the decade. From her 1994 “Rachel” look to the current 2004 look…it is still the “Rachel,” the best looking hair since Farrah! Guest stars over the years include Christina Applegate, Bruce Willis, Tom Selleck, Brad Pitt, Freddie Prinze Jr., Aisha Tyler, Hank Azaria, Paul Rudd and so many others!


Packaging:

All 236 episodes are contained in a huge box. The box itself is maroon in color and features nice shots of the FRIENDS. Opening the top of the box reveals the six "booklets" that hold the discs along with the fantastic 60 page booklet filled with colored photos of the series and episode recaps separated in the books by disc.

The six "booklets" that contain the episodes are in a different color and feature a front and back picture of each FRIEND (one friend for each set). What's also cool is that each disc in that set features shots of the cast through the years. You'd have to see it to really grasp what it looks like. Set 1 features Monica (Courteney Cox Arquette) and contains episodes 1-43 on seven discs. Episodes 44 through 79 are in set two that features Chandler (Matthew Perry) and they are spread over six discs. Episodes 80 through 121 are located on set 3 and feature Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) on the cover and they are spread over seven discs. Episodes 122 through 164 are on set four and feature Ross (David Schwimmer) on the cover and they are spread over seven discs. Episodes 165 through 206 are located in set 5 and feature Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) on the cover and they are spread over seven discs. Episodes 207 through 236 are located in set 6 and feature Joey (Matt LeBlanc) on the cover and they are spread over six discs.


Menu Design and Navigation:

The menus are the same as were on the individual regular seasons. The menu pops up with the FRIENDS theme looping in the background (without lyrics). It features "Play" (to play all episodes), Episodes, which takes you to a sub-menu where you can immediately scroll down the episodes and click on the coffee cup to view a preview or you can select the episode title. If there are bonus features on that disc, you can select the special features selection, which takes you to a sub menu.


Video and Audio Quality:

Video is great as is the audio--nothing to be concerned about there. If you have each season set already, you know how it is. Closed captioning is available and each episode is uncut, running various lengths through each season. Chapter stops are located on each episode.


Special Features:

All of the special features that were included on the regular season sets are located here as well. Included in this set is a collector's booklet featuring great photos and episode recaps. The booklet goes through each disc, showing which episode is where and what special features are on that disc, so check it out.


Final Comments:

Overall, I'm actually quite thrilled to have this set. It's styled well and somewhat compact. It's well worth the money and if you are a FRIENDS fan, I actually recommend getting the set, even if you have the other season sets. If you are a die-hard fan, I know you will buy it…and you should. There's various ways to get the sets off your hands. It's a bit pricey but that's to be expected. So, start singing “I’ll Be There for You” and run and buy this set…even if you have all the seasons already! The 60-page booklet and packaging are high class.


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

Video Quality: 5/5
Audio Quality: 5/5
Special Features: 4/5
Menu Navigation/Design: 4.5/5
Overall: 4.5/5
