Your Next Box Set: Friends
We recommend the complete Friends box set, easily the most successful and one of the best-loved comedies of all time...
What's Friends about?
The Friends complete box set is made up of 236 episodes from seasons 1 to 10. The concept of this popular American sitcom is very, very basic as we follow the lives, loves, highs, lows and laughs of six twenty-something friends living in Manhattan.
The Friends box set includes all seasons of the sitcom, the likes of which we'll never see created again. Their unmatchable chemistry helped achieve worldwide success and global dominance for 10 seasons, with the actors earning in excess of $1m dollars per episode by the end.
Who's in Friends?
The cast featuring in the Friends box set were all jobbing actors before joining Friends and have now all gone on to become very famous in their own right.
Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing), David Schwimmer (Dr Ross Geller), Matt Le Blanc (Joey Tribbiani), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel Green), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay) and Courteney Cox (Monica Geller) make up the cast of the hilarious and acclaimed series, about a family based on friendship.
The Friends box set also features several special appearances from guest stars Paul Rudd, Tom Selleck, Helen Baxendale, Anna Farris and Elle MacPherson, who were among the supporting cast at various times throughout all seasons of the show. They were joined at a number of points by a series of one off high profile guest stars including Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, Reece Witherspoon, Denise Richards and many more.
Why should I watch it?
From the moment that you first hear The Rembrandts’ intro to "I’ll Be There for You," you won’t be able to switch off. It's fair to say that as the show went on and viewers got more invested in the relationships between the characters, the gags definitely got scarcer, but it still remained a very affecting watch. Friends has become such a fixture of daytime schedules that it's easy to forget it’s actually very, very funny.
Even if you think you’ve already seen them all, the Friends complete box set includes all the extended, exclusive and unseen footage - it just gets better every time you watch it!
You can never have enough "Friends", so sit down, put the DVD on and you'll be amazed how many episodes you can watch in a single sitting.
