Chan-andel-ler Bong. Drink the fat. Phil Spiderman. The Miami Vice soundtrack… does it ever stop being funny? Even if it did lose its edge towards the end, Friends remains, well, TV perfection. Especially in those early seasons when the insights into relationships and the mid-‘90s, mid-20s, what-do-we-do-with-our-lives struggle ruled every episode. This isn’t the first complete series release, but it’s certainly the prettiest (so far, anyway). Included here: a gorgeous scarlet box with six flip-book DVD cases that chronicle the ever-changing hair-dos of the Friends cast; a 60-page booklet containing contents and information about the set; 40 discs containing all 236 episodes of the show, as well as featurettes, quizzes, photos, gag reels, and heaps more. This is the ultimate collection for Friends adorers. [Amazon]
