Product Description

Starting in London, finishing in Las Vegas and bookended with weddings in both places, bet on this deluxe 4-Disc Set of the fifth season of the smash-hit television comedy series, FRIENDS.

Amazon.ca

Divorce number 2 is immediately on the cards as the fifth season opens with "The One After Ross Says Rachel." As of this point, Ross's character undergoes some extreme personality changes (which apparently lost David Schwimmer many female fans). His incessant whining drives all the Friends to distraction, especially in "The One Where Ross Moves In" with Chandler (Matthew Perry) and Joey (Matt LeBlanc). Later things get uncomfortable both at work and at home when he goes through a period of rage ("The One with Ross's Sandwich"). While all this downplays his failed relationship with Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), the real idea is to allow focus on the secret pairing of Chandler and Monica (Courteney Cox) after a night of passion in London. This made for a return to the show's appealingly silly atmosphere as poor Joey is caught in the middle of everyone's secrets. Building to "The One Where Everybody Finds Out," the silliness pauses for some genuinely touching interplay between Perry and Cox. The previous year's semi-serious thread about Phoebe's (Lisa Kudrow) birth gets forgotten fast: to distract the viewer she's introduced to Gary (Michael Rapaport) in "The One with the Cop." This leads to some hilarious parodying with Phoebe interrogated about apartment hunting, and the guys excited and then scared in "The One with the Ride-Along." She's more than over him by the time of the two-part finale, "The One in Vegas," though, especially since she missed out on London. Just in case fans thought Chandler and Monica had permanently stolen the spotlight, a cliffhanger shocks expectation again with Ross and Rachel bursting out of a chapel.... --Paul Tonks

This is the first Friends season I've bought, and was very impressed. Some might wonder why I didn't begin with season one, but here's why. For fans of the show who are just beginning their collection, start with the best the show has to offer. And that's season five. On the other hand, for viewers who aren't too fimiliar with the show yet want to get into it, it only makes sense to start with the first season.
Season five contains possibly the best episode throughout the course of the series, "The One With All The Thanksgiving," where everyone relives Thanksgiving day horror stories from their past. Other notable events from this season are the fallout from Ross' and Emily's botched wedding, Phoebe's birth to her brother's triplets, and the evolution of the Chandler-Monica angle.
The four-disc DVD, obviously including all seaosn five shows, is very well-done. The audio/video transfer, which some people have questioned, is fine. I don't see how people could complain about its quality.
The menu's are easy to navigate, and snazzy at that. Next to each episode title, there's a coffee cup. If you click it, you can watch a preview of the episode. It's a great way to decide which shows you want to watch and when.
The extras, while not as good as they should be, are sufficient. There's commentary show higher-ups on three shows, a 45 minute Discovery Channel documentary on what it takes to create a Friends episode, Friends on location in London, an easter egg, and Guther's preview of season six.
Friends has had good seasons before, and after, season five... but none better than season five.

I am a HUGE die-hard Friends fan (Read: really, I like it waaay too much). The fifth season is incredible - from the very first line where Ross says Rachel's name at the altar, to the very end, where a drunk Ross and Rachel stumble out of a Las Vegas wedding chapel. And although that might sound to you like a two-person cast (Ross, Rachel) don't get me wrong: Monica and Chandler offer probably the greatest running gags all season as they struggle, and eventually fail, to keep their relationship a secret. Phoebe has triplets, and in one of the most touching moments ever on television, gives them up to her brother and his wife. Joey - well, he's just Joey. From discovering his identical hand twin, to (almost) getting his big break, to carrying around a purse, to getting hit by a girl, Joey has his work cut out for him this season. Overall, this is one of FRIEND's greatest seasons - there's even an episode where Monica, Ross and Joey try to see how long they can throw a ball without stopping. I say: Only on Friends. Now, especially, as Friends is (sob) wrapping up their final season (oh no, i'm starting to cry), if you aren't up to date on Ross and Rachel's love rollercoaster, Monica and Chandler's quest for a baby, and Phoebe and Joey... well, just being themselves... buy the DVDs and get yourself caught up. Don't worry, you'll thank me later.
Chandler: Pheebs? Flying a jet? Better make it a spaceship so that you can get back to your home planet! And Ross, phone call for you today, Tom Jones, he wants his pants back! And Hornswoggle? What are you dating a character from Fraggile Rock?!

You have to admire the symmetry of "Friends: The Complete Fifth Season," which opens with Ross getting married and ends with Ross getting married. It reminds me of "Gone With the Wind," which begins with Scarlet pining for a man she cannot have and ends the same way. However, the key difference is that Monica and Chandler are a lot more fun than Ashley and Miss Melly ever were, that is for sure. For that reason Season Five is important in the "Friends" chronology, because it begins the second half of the series, which is operationally defined by the fact that as this point the Monica-Chandler relationship is suddenly transformed from a joke in the finale from the previous season into a driving force for both the season and the series. Even though we are now starting the final half of the final season, I think a lot of "Friends" fans are rooting more for Monica to adopt a baby (if not for Monica to actually be pregnant), then they are at this point for Ross and Rachel to finally end up together for the final time. While not as good as the fourth season, this one once again shows that having multiple story arcs for most of the characters is what works best for the series.Read more ›

Chemistry is something that either happens or doesn't. It can't be manufactured, nor can it be copied. The cast of "Friends" has that kind of chemistry. And the magic between these six actors has only grown stronger during the course of this last decade. Season five proves this.
In their audio commentary and in the "Behind the Scenes" documentary, the show creators reflect on the earlier years saying that perhaps they played out the Ross & Rachel love story too soon. But I, for one, disagree. The most interesting (and fun) part of the Ross & Rachel story has been the ongoing tension between them as they continue to forge their friendship in the shadow of their broken romance.
Besides, happy endings are boring.
For anyone who criticized "Friends" for being nothing more than a Ross & Rachel soap opera, they certainly were eating crow as the Monica & Chandler love story unfolded. Even the show's creators admitted that if it hadn't been for the rapport between Courtney Cox and Matthew Perry, that story never would have grown as it has. Kudos to the show's writers for paying attention to what was staring them right in the face!
While other series begin to lose steam by the fifth year, this one only gains momentum. And the farcical madness and touching finale of "The One Where Everybody Finds Out" is just one shining example.
This set is, by far, the best gift I've received this holiday season (with no disrespect meant to my friend Bill who gave me the Gideon thermometer - I like it, I really do!).
...I'm humming the show's theme song right now!!
