Introduction:

Your favorite FRIENDS are back for another go around on DVD! This time it's "best of" sets. Join all your favorites, Monica, Rachel, Ross, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe and relive those crazy fun episodes you loved.


Episodes Included / Notable Guest Stars:

The episodes included on this disc are: "The One with the Birth" (O/A/D: 5/11/95) in which Ross' son Ben is born. "The One with the Baby on the Bus" (Airdate: 11/2/95) in which Joey and Chandler baby-sit Ben and lose him on a bus. "The One Hundreth" (10/8/98) in which Phoebe gives birth to triplets, "The One Where Rachel Has the Baby" (Airdate: 5/16/02), the hour-long season 8 finale in which Rachel gives birth to Emma and "The One With The Male Nanny" (Airdate: 11/7/02) in which Freddie Prinze Jr. guest stars as Emma's male nanny, which irks Ross.

Some notable guests this season include: Leah Remini ("The King of Queens"), Catherine Bell ("JAG"), Lea Thompson ("Caroline in the City"), Giovanni Ribisi (various movies) as Phoebe's half brother, Debra Jo Rupp ("That '70s Show") as Phoebe's sister-in-law, Patrick Fabian, Heidi Beck, Christina Pickles, Debi Mazar, Maggie Wheeler, Eddie McClintock ("Crumbs"), Paul Rudd, Hank Azaria and Freddie Prinze Jr. ("Freddie") as Emma's male nanny.


Packaging:

The cover art features a picture from one of the episodes on the disc. For this cover we have a picture of Rachel and Ross together before Rachel gave birth to Emma. It's a simple cover design for a single disc release. The back of the box lists the episodes available.


Menu Design and Navigation:

The menu starts off with a shot of the six friends together (it's a bigger version of what's on the top of the disc case). It then goes to the main menu screen which is identical to the cover art. The FRIENDS theme song loops (no lyrics). Selections are: Play (All), Episodes, Special Features and Languages.


Video and Audio Quality:

As expected, the video is very good, considering the show is only about 12 or so years old. Audio is fine as well and there are no problems to worry about. The episodes are unedited and have chapter stops.


Special Features:

Not a whole lot is offered. Basic commentary by Executive Producers Kevin S. Bright, Marta Kauffman and David Crane on the episodes "The One-Hundredth," "The One Where Rachel Has a Baby," and "The One with the Male Nanny" are offered.


Final Comments:

Overall, this is not a bad release. It's a good idea for FRIENDS fans who might not be able to afford a regular season set release and want to relive some of their favorite episodes. A good job by Warner Brothers and I applaud them for putting commentary onto the episodes. It was definitely nice to have that.


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

Video Quality: 5/5
Audio Quality: 5/5
Special Features: 3/5
Menu Design/Navigation: 4/5
Overall: 4.5/5
