Color
MSRP: $14.97

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. This time, light up the candles and celebrate your favorite FRIENDS' birthdays!


Episodes Included / Notable Guest Stars:

The episodes included on this disc are: "The One With The Two Parties" (Originally Aired On: 5/2/96), "The One Where Chandler Can't Remember Which Sister" (OAD: 1/9/97), "The One Where Rachel Smokes" (OAD: 4/8/99), "The One Where They All Turn Thirty" (OAD: 2/8/01), "The One With Phoebe's Birthday Dinner" (OAD: 10/31/02) and "The One With The Cake" (OAD: 10/23/03).


Packaging:

The cover art features a picture from one of the episodes on the disc. For this cover we have a picture of Rachel opening a birthday present. 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.


Special Features:

Unlike the first two sets (Weddings and Babies), there isn't any commentary. A bummer for fans, I'm sure.


Final Comments:

Another nice set--it's one of those items that a casual FRIENDS fan might pick up to see their favorite episodes if they aren't able to afford the full season set. It was disappointing not to see any commentary this go around (two out of three doesn't make any sense). Overall though, a good job by Warner.


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

Video Quality: 5/5
Audio Quality: 5/5
Special Features: 0/5
Menu Design/Navigation: 4/5
Overall: 4/5
