In the 1994 comedy series on TV, Friends, Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), Ross Geller (David Schwimmer), Monica Geller (Courteney Cox), Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry) and Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) are all friends, living off of one another in the heart of New York. Over the course of eight years, this average group of buddies go through massive mayhem, family trouble, past and future romances, fights, laughs, tears and surprises as they learn what it really means to be a friend. This box set on DVD includes all 10 seasons of the hit comedy TV series.
A good sitcom relies on strong jokes and characters, not a high concept, and Friends is obviously a huge example of that. It’s about… friends. Being friends. And dating and stuff. But it benefited from some terrifically funny writing and the kind of cast chemistry you luck onto only once in awhile and in the process became one of TV’s most popular comedies ever. –Eric Goldman, IGN
What helps Friends is that the show’s creators have come up with a highly likable group of actors who are talented and charming, if not rip-roaringly funny. –Ken Parish Perkins, Chicago Tribune
No sitcom since Friends has touched it for comedy or cultural impact. The wait continues. –The Tv Critic
