Synopsis


The first season of Friends could easily have been retitled "Getting to Know You," as all the soon-to-be-familiar characters, and their equally soon-to-be familiar interrelationships, were swiftly and economically established. In the opening episode, Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston) abandons her "Mr. Potato Head" spouse at the altar and moves in with her former high-school friend Monica Geller (Courteney Cox) in Monica's spacious New York loft apartment. Not long afterward, we meet Monica's brother, Ross (David Schwimmer), who is down in the dumps because his ex-wife, Carol (Jane Sibbett), has not only declared herself a lesbian, but will soon be giving birth to his son (named Ben), whom she and her partner intend to raise without any of Ross' help. Also, we are treated to the first of aspiring actor Joey Tribbiani's (Matt LeBlanc) dead-end "big breaks" when he is hired as Al Pacino's stand-in. Finally, airhead Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) is given the opportunity to perform her treacly folk songs at the gang's favorite hangout, the Central Perk coffeehouse -- only to have her debut spoiled by a citywide power blackout. In other developments, Ross "adopts" a monkey named Marcel; Joey briefly falls for Phoebe's bitchy twin sister, Ursula (also played by Lisa Kudrow); and Joey's roommate, Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), betrays a confidence by informing Rachel that Ross has a crush on her. A solid hit from the moment it left the starting gate, Friends wound up its freshman season as the eighth highest-rated program on American television. ~ Hal Erickson

    The Beginning of a Long Lasting Friendship

    It's an exciting fresh, start that will mark the beggining of such an strong friendship. You'll get a kick discovering how Ross' crush for Rachel started and how all the friends bonded. You can relive the 90's with it's music, fashion, trends and inside jokes as it was when you watched it for the first time You'll remember the things that were cool then and are out now without maybe, feeling some nostalgia. Or if you're too young to have seen it and want to know what all the fuss is about. See how Jennifer Aniston became an icon and so did her hair cut("The Rachel") See when Joey was not that dumb and Chandler was cool. Phoebe was more hippy than ever and Monica seemed like the leader of the group. But regardless of what your perception is, you are sure to enjoy many hours of entertainment sharing the stories of these 3 gals and these 3 boys. It won't be long when you'll also make them your FRIENDS!

    I love this show, and I had always wanted to own the whole series. I started collecting an extensive blu ray selection, and it was only natural to buy this series in an upgraded format. Little did I know, though, that only seasons 1 & 2 are available to buy on blu ray INDIVIDUALLY. If you want the whole series on blu ray, YOU MUST buy the complete box set. No word as of this review if the later seasons will be released individually. Had I known that, I wouldn't have wasted my money buying this single season. Do buy the box set though, it's worth it if you're a fan of the show.

    The Begining of One of the Best Sitcoms Ever!!

    This show may have debuted when I was only 5, but it has has consistently been one of my favorites. I've seen every episode of the series and I can say without a doubt, you'd be at a loss without the magic (or terrible fashion) of this hit! This is a DVD set that you can watch straight through or whenever you have the chance. It'll make you laugh, make you cry and make you fall in love.

    I caught this on another of Best Buy's great sales and decided to check it out. Overall this is a great start to the show we all know and love and it's worth checking out to get a feel of the series. However the show didn't reach its momentum until later seasons so some episodes do fall short to me. I would still recommend it nonetheless.
