Product Description

Stunt casting stumbles (Jean-Claude Van Damme, Charlie Sheen) aside, it was a very good year for this beloved series, recently ranked by TV Guide as among the top 25 of all time. With the bar set so high from the first season, a sophomore slump could be expected, but, apart from a game Julia Roberts, only the hour-long episode raised the question whether success would spoil Friends. (This episode, "The One After the Super Bowl," convinced some misguided NBC executive that guest star Brooke Shields could carry her own series!) Ross (David Schwimmer) and Rachel (an Emmy-worthy Jennifer Aniston) were the engine that drove the season and produced some of the series' most monumental episodes, including "The One with Ross' New Girlfriend," "The One Where Ross Finds Out" (with R & R's first kiss), "The One with the List," "The One with the Prom Video," and "The One Where Ross and Rachel... You Know." But this was not the only significant story arc.

Enter--and, in the bittersweet season finale, exit--Tom Selleck as Dr. Richard Burke, the family friend ("He's like a brother to... Dad," notes a disapproving Ross) who becomes Monica's (Courtney Cox) lover. Joey (Matt LeBlanc) finds success (albeit short-lived) as Dr. Drake Ramoray on "Days of Our Lives" and moves out ("We're not Bert and Ernie," he tells roommate Chandler). Future Emmy winner Lisa Kudrow's best season is to come, but, as Phoebe, she makes the most of some memorable subplots, including her shocked discovery of sad movie endings she had been shielded from ("The One Where Old Yeller Dies"), her dispute with Ross over evolution ("The One Where Heckles Dies"), and her channeling of an elderly woman who died on her massage table ("The One with the Lesbian Wedding"). Praise is due unsung hero Lauren Tom, so charming and sweet in the thankless role as Julie, the Girl Who Comes Between Ross and Rachel. Adam Goldberg also makes an indelible impression in his three-episode stint as Chandler's new "psycho" roommate. Notable omissions from this set include chapter stops for each episode, and uh, ahem, hel-LOH, how about commentary from the cast? --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars so no one told you life was gonna be this way... Jan. 4 2004
Format:DVD
i got introduced to friends through the dvd box sets, and it's been a pleasure to watch them in order, with the full episode included, uncut. certain lines or parts of scenes are cut out on tv, so if you're a die-hard fan, having the episodes on dvd can be preferable.
i'm liking the third season better than second right now, but that's only a personal preference. there are some classic episodes included on this set - lots of ross and rachel, joey's first big role as drake ramoray on days of our lives, joey moving out of the apartment with chandler, and monica's relationship with an older man, richard. being that chandler and phoebe are my favorite characters, i missed their involvement a bit, but they got subplots.
highlights: ross and rachel 'you-knowing' in the planetarium part of the museum where ross works, phoebe's "smelly cat", ross making a list about rachel, monica's character developing as she grows closer to richard, chandler finding an internet girl who turns out to be janice, all the tension between ross rachel and julie, etc.
lowlights: something about the episodes where eddie moved in seemed less well written and a little tedious. maybe it was just the fact that i was sick when I was watching them. *g* the fact that there are no chapters in episodes themselves, as others have mentioned, is a drawback. should have commentary from the six main character actors themselves; other shows do! deleted scenes would be nice; some of the special features seem useless, like showing a short clip of each guest actor when if you just watch the episodes, you have the whole thing. being able to check out monica and rachel's apartment in detail was kind of cool, though. and the quiz game was fun. if you get it wrong, it shows a clip of one of the characters shouting "no!", which i thought was incredibly clever and funny.
that's all i can think of off the top of my head; i'm at work and can't check the dvds for specifics. :)

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I am still not at the point where I can recognize the bonus footage included in "Friends: The Complete Second Season" on DVD, but I can tell that the second season was an overall improvement on the first, despite the fact that the series did not put its best foot forward with "The One After the Super Bowl Pars 1 & 2" (thumbs up on Julia Roberts, both thumbs down on Brooke Shields and Jean-Claude Van Damme). Obviously getting Ross (David Schwimmer) and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) to the point where they would actually kiss was a key dynamic, but what made this a better season was that Monica (Courtney Cox) and Joey (Matt LeBlanc), the two weakest characters in the first season, were finally given something to do. For Monica it was a romance with Dr. Richard Burke (Tom Selleck), the old friend of the family, while Joey landed the unforgettable part of Dr. Drake Ramoray on "Days of Our Lives" and actually moves out of the apartment with Chandler. Chandler (Matthew Perry) continues to crack jokes to ease all the pain in his life and Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) sings "Smelly Cat" for the first time, but even as background for most of these episodes they both steal their share of scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Second Feast Of Friends Nov. 5 2003
Format:DVD
After a phenomenal debut season like Friends,most shows coast on it's success and start to slip in quality.But Friends would only get better with each successive season.
Changes were in the air for the group.Joey joined the cast of Days Of Our Lives as the ill fated Dr.Drake Ramoray,we meet Phoebe's ex husband (Steve Zahn),Chandler gets a new roommate(Adam Goldberg)who turns out to be a psycho,and Monica falls in love with her dad's best friend Dr. Richard Burke(Tom Selleck).The seasons driving force is the beginning of the on/off again relationship between Rachel and Ross.
Many classic episodes came from this season including The One where Heckles Dies,...the Baby on the Bus,...where Ross Finds Out,...the List,...where Ross and Rachel ... You Know,...where Dr. Ramoray Dies and ...Two Parties.
But also from season two was The One With The Prom Video,considered the greatest Friends episode ever.Not only are we treated to a plot involving a hidious bracelet Joey gives to Chandler,but an old video of Rachel and Monica's prom.Giving a glimpse into to past at an overwieght Monica,a pre-nose job Rachel,and an extremely dorky Ross("Looking Good Mr. Kotter).The most surprising moment is after viewing the video and Rachel seeing how much Ross really loved her,she finally kisses him(his Lobster) one of those special moments why Friends beloved by it's many fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Friends, my favorite show of all time!! Oct. 13 2003
Format:DVD
Ahhh, the season where Ross and Rachel FINALLY become a couple! All through the 1st season, we witnessed Ross's many attempts to express his feelings for Rachel. In this season, Ross and Rachel become a couple, but it wasn't easy for them to get there. At the beginning of this season, Ross meets a woman named Julie, who is his girlfriend for the first couple of months and Rachel shows her jealously throughout Ross and Julie's relationship. Ross breaks up with Julie when he discovers that Rachel has feelings for him. But Ross does something that angers Rachel to the very core of her being; he makes a list that compares her and Julie. Rachel finds out about the list and blows off Ross for a couple of months. Then Rachel views a video of her and Monica going to senior prom. Rachel's date is late, so Monica's father suggests Ross take Rachel to the prom. Ross didn't think it was a very good idea, but he goes along with it anyways. But, when Ross is upstairs getting ready, Rachel's date shows up, leaving Ross heartbroken. Rachel never knew about this until she sees the prom video. As soon as the video is over, Rachel kisses Ross and they finally become a couple. This is also the season where Monica meets and falls in love with the man of her dreams. But their romance is short-lived due to a serious matter. This is defintely a great DVD to add to your Friends collection. Hope you enjoy!!
