in which Freddie Prinze Jr. guest stars as Emma's male

Some notable guests this season include: Leah Remini

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.
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
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.
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.
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.
