"This set of Volumes 1 and 2 of the Best of Friends is absolutely worth watching!! The DVD features the following episodes:VOLUME ONE1. Pilot (9/22/94): This is the best first episode of America's favourite comedy, showing how Rachel came to live with Monica. This ep sets the mood for the rest of the series.2. The One With Two Parts (3/2/95). Two-part episode where Monica and Rachel date two doctors, both guest stars from the hit series ER (George Clooney and Noah Wyle). 3. The One With All the Poker (2/23/95). The girls challenge the guys to a game of poker only to lose all of their money more than once... Rachel starts applying for jobs4. The One Where Ross Finds Out (11/9/95). Ross and Julie decide to buy a cat but a drunken Rachel leaves a phone message for Ross confessing her feelings about him, hence Ross finally finds out how Rachel feels.5. The One With The Prom Video (2/1/96). One of the fun flashback episodes to when the guys are in high school, getting ready for the prom. Hilarious shots of Rachel, Monica and Ross when they were teenagers!VOLUME TWO1. The One Where No One's Ready (9/26/96): Ross stresses out as no one is ready for his museum benefit. Monica finds a message from Richard and can't decide if it's old or new - so she leaves him a msg on his answering machine with disastrous results.2. The One With The Embryos (1/15/98): Phoebe agrees to carry her brother's baby while the rest of the gang argue about which duo knows the other one better - Chandler and Joey or Monica and Rachel. They settle it with an hilarious game hosted by Ross!3. The One With Ross's Wedding (5/7/98): Another two-parter where the gang head over to London for Ross' wedding with Emily. The start of Chandler and Monica's relationship, as well as the demise of Ross and Emily's.4. The One With All the Thanksgivings (11/19/98): Another hilarious flashback episode where the gang relive past Thanksgivings with some of the gang discovering ghosts of the past...5. The One Where Everybody Finds Out (2/11/99): A personal favourite, when Phoebe finds out about Chandler and Monica and decides to "mess with them". Ross applies for Ugly Naked Guy's apartment.Apart from the obvious benefit of NO COMMERCIALS - YES!!, the extra features on this DVD are fantastic! It includes a music video of the Friends theme by the Rembrandts featuring the main cast from the tv show, a behind the scenes look at filming in London, commentary from the production team and cast bios. Volumes 1 and 2 really do have the funniest, most entertaining episodes of Friends and I would recommend it to both fans of the show and those people who are not yet convinced - if these DVDs don't convince them, nothing will!"
Good Episodes, but already available

"This set of Friends, has some of the best episodes like "The one with two parts," but the only problem, Is your going to pay [$$$] for six episodes that are aready available in the Season 1 and 2 boxs sets. If you only want a few episodes this is the way to go, but your better off buying the full seasons."

"The Best of Friends is absolutely wonderful. I absolutely love the show, and this collection has put ten of the funniest episodes available for purchase. I have had the set since it first came out and I'm still not tired of it yet. Friends is probably the funniest show on television, and its still going strong. If you like Friends, I recommend this collection for you, it highlights the classic moments, such as Ross getting Rachel's message, Rachel seeing the Prom video, all the Thanksgivings, and others such as that."
