A Decade of Laughter and Friendship

"Friends is a sit com with a simple premise. It follows six friends as they deal with the challenges of early adulthood in New York City.
Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) is the spoiled woman learning to live on her own for the first time. Her roommate Monica (Courtney Cox Arquette) is a clean freak chef. Monica's brother Ross (David Schwimmer) is a nerdy paleontologist. Across the hall from Monica and Rachel are Chandler (Matthew Perry), a sarcastic office worker, and struggling actor Joey (Matt LeBlanc). Rounding out the group is free spirit Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) who makes her living as a message therapist and freelance guitarist. They are usually hanging out at an apartment or the coffee house they all love, Central Perk.
Over the course of ten seasons, the show managed to get all the characters through a lot of trials. They all had many romantic relationships start and fail and all were out of work at one point or another. Through it all, the friends stuck by each other.
Those friendships are one of the things that continue to draw me to the show. With a few exceptions, any squabbles will be patched up by the time the half hour is over. If only friends stayed this close in real life.
And of course, the show is funny. From Chandler's one-liners to Joey's ignorant statements of fact or Monica's desire for order, these characters could be counted on to make you laugh.
The one storyline that stretches from the pilot to the finale is Ross and Rachel's romantic relationship. They almost get together and break up so many times, it gets frustrating after a while. Their relationship is a main focus of the early seasons, but begins to take a back seat to other storylines as the series progresses. Except, of course, when it's time for a season cliffhanger. All but one season ended with some twist to the story. Frankly, it got a little tiresome by the end, but it only detracts a little.
Maybe dragging out the Ross/Rachel storyline is one reason for it, but the later seasons do loose a little of their charm. The early seasons had a warmth to them that later seasons seemed to loose. I find I enjoy watching the earlier seasons better then the later ones even though the later ones are still entertaining and funny. Later seasons do, for example, feature Phoebe finding a man to marry and Monica and Chandler's marriage and struggles with having kids. And, of course, there's Joey's triumphant return to Days of Our Lives and movie debut.
This set has everything a fan could want. All ten seasons of the show are here with a collectable cover to keep the smaller sets in. The episodes features original full frame picture and 5.1 surround sound. Scenes cut to make room for commercials are included, some for the first time. In addition, each set contains interviews, commentary, blooper reels, set tours, trivia challenges, and other behind the scenes fun.
For any fan of Friends who has put off getting the DVD's, this collection is a dream come true. The outer collector shell is the only things those buying them all along are missing, and information about ordering it separately is available is the season 10 set."
Just the Box!

"Well I have been buying every season of Friends as it came out. I even have the favorite only DVD's and the final episode on DVD. So I was a little disappointed when I found out they were doing a box set with what I think is a really cool box. I thought of getting it anyway and trying to sell my old ones, but I figured I would lose money that way.
So when I went to the store today and bought season ten, imagine my happiness when I found a coupon inside to buy just the box for $20(with s/h)
So I just thought I would share that with anyone else who may have wanted the box. Seems like a great deal to me!"
