This is the complete Friends box set containing, if you can believe it, over 5,200 minutes (well over 85 hours) of TV on 40 DVDs! That covers all 10 series plus lots of additional footage and features. That should keep even the most ardent Friends fan busy for a while!
If you can remember that far back, Friends first came to our screens in 1994. It followed six main character, all with their own foibles and charm, and the story of their twenty-something (and later thirty-something) lives in New York.
First we have Ross Geller (David Schwimmer) – a palaeontologist. Then there was his sister Monica Geller (Courtney Cox) – she was the obsessive cleaner of the group. Then her friend Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), who was the spoiled rich girl. Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry) was the humorously sarcastic one, Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) was the kooky masseuse, and finally Joey Tribbiani (Matt Le Blanc) was the struggling actor.
Together they possessed a charm that enthralled fans around the World. We all followed the on/off relationship of Ross/Rachel and all the other adventures and emotional trips they went on over the course of the 10 series, whether that be the love triangles, loss, marriage, divorce or parenthood.
The show was not short of celebrity guest appearance, either. Who can forget Kathleen Turner playing Chandler’s drag-queen Dad! Other celebs to appear include George Clooney, Tom Selleck, Jennifer Saunders, Sean Penn, Bruce Willis and Julia Roberts, to name but a few.
Friends is broadcast continuously around the World on various TV stations, but they stand the test of time and can be watched again and again. If you’re a fan of the show, or know somebody that is, then this Friends box set is an essential collection and highly recommended!
