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

    During the first week of January 2015, BestBuy was selling the complete series for $69 + free shipping. I have no idea how they made a profit on it. It was such an awesome deal that I couldn't resist! I used my $25 My BestBuy rewards certificate to bring down the cost to $44! It was an insane value! I bought it right away; it was delivered very quickly. I know Friends was just added to Netflix, but it's very nice having the full DVD set in hand. Hands down my favorite TV show of all time, and cheers to BestBuy for selling it for such an amazing value :-)

    I love this series. I've been wanting to purchase all the seasons at once without having to break the bank or pay an unreasonable amount of money for them. I was never able to find all seasons during the Black Friday sales so I've always held off on purchasing them. When I found these and they averaged out to be only $10 per season, with all the bonus material, and brand new I couldn't pass them up. So happy I found these!!

    This was a great series about 6 friends living in NY trying to deal with the ups and downs of life. I still catch the re-runs on TV and when I saw the whole series collection I had to get it. Sometimes on TV parts get cut out of the show to fit the time slot, but on the DVD you can watch the whole episodes and with no commercial interruptions. There are also bonus scenes that never get aired.

    The DVDs all work great, and who doesn't love friends?!? But upon receiving my box set, 7/10 of the cases were damaged in some way. Mostly little chunks broken off but still. $70 is a LOT of money to be spending to receive damaged product. Other than that delivery speed and the actual dvds were great!

If you're looking for a new show to watch this is the one! The humor and story lines are classic and applicable to any generation. Cool box too!

    This is a great steal if purchased during the Black Friday deals - it matches the price found on Amazon and allows you to earn points if purchased with the Best Buy credit card. Each season is packaged in its own case, and all of the cases fit neatly into a larger box for easy organization.

    Bought this for my wife this Valentines Day. She loves it. All she had was a best of collection. Every night for the last few months she has watched a few episodes before going to bed.

    I price-matched this (thank you BB for making this a relatively painless process) when it went *super* cheap on a popular online vendor and even though I have the Blu-ray set, I picked this up to get the extended episodes and bonus features which aren't on the other set.
