Friends Complete Series
Six singles in Manhattan, each with his or her ambitions, knowledge and dreams, connected with others through family ties, common past, shared flat and other life circumstances.
Friends were TV hit from the very beginning and the sitcom is still aired all over the world.

Their stories are stories of twenty-something people who are already old enough to pursuit a serious career and start a family but somehow they still don't want to rush into something before exploring the possibilities of life.
I, as millions of fans across the world, was hardly waiting every Thursday night to find out what will happen in next show. Will Phoebe present a new weird song? Will Joey seduce new girl? What will be the next Chandler's sarcasm? What will be Monica's next field for competition? What about Rachel and Ross?
40 DVDs and 80 hours of all Friends series! That's really something - every fan would just love them.
And they are available in Blu-ray version too.
Yes, relationship between Rachel and Ross is one of the most known fictional relationships ever.
It has all the ups and downs anybody can imagine, both had reasons to get out of it (what they did several times) but somehow it is clear this couple is meant to be together and in the last episode both said they still love each other.
This is kind of love almost everybody can relate to and one of the reasons why Friends were such a hit.
While each of six main actors got 22.500 dollars for the first episode, stars enhanced their salary to million dollars each in every episode of last two seasons. It was David Schwimmer's idea to demand equal payment for everybody because he expected some characters will become more popular than others and this might start devastating jealousy in the cast.
In reality this meant himself and Jennifer Aniston as best payed actors in second season agreed on lower payment what probably helped keeping the series alive so many years and to earn more than one billion dollars so far!
Series was not only a huge commercial success, all the main characters became best friends and even sort of alternative family in real life too.
Sadly nothing lasts forever and this sitcom was no exception. Even the record breaking budgets for the episodes made in last season (ten million dollars for every episode) couldn't prevent the inevitable. Series was over. All the main actors were involved in other projects and frankly everybody had to grow up some time.
I was very pleasantly surprised hearing the rumors about making a full time movie with the same cast but creators of the series denied that. Martha Kauffman said the show is over because this part of their life is over.
I have to agree with that simple fact but part of me still wants to see more from Ross and Rachel, Monica and Chandler, Phoebe and Joey... After all, they were my friends too.
