Friends (Season 3) DVD Review
One of the most popular shows of the 1990s, Friends made the traditional sitcom king of the ratings once again. Of course, Frasier and Seinfeld did their part. Recipient of numerous awards during its long tenure in the Thursday night NBC timeslot, Friends followed the lives of six title characters - Monica Geller (Courteney Cox), Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), Ross Geller (David Schwimmer), Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc), and Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry). Together, they formed the best six-person comedy team in television history. The Friends (Season 3) DVD offers a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere where Chandler gets back together with Janice (Maggie Wheeler), and Janice forces Joey to bond with her. This episode also features Ross's Princess Leia fantasy which Rachel fulfills.
Episode 57 features a life-long Thanksgiving football rivalry between Ross and Monica, and in the following episode, Rachel quits her job at Central Perk. When Rachel's new job puts her in constant contact with another man, Ross's jealousy forces her to call for "a break" in their relationship. Distraught, Ross gets drunk and sleeps with Chloe, the copy shop girl Chandler and Joey have been talking about for months. Eventually the news reaches Rachel, and she puts a permanent end to her romantic relationship with Ross… Below is a list of episodes included on the Friends (Season 3) DVD: Episode 49 (The One with the Princess Leia Fantasy) Air Date: 09-16-1996 Episode 50 (The One Where No One's Ready) Air Date: 09-26-1996 Episode 51 (The One with the Jam) Air Date: 10-03-1996 Episode 52 (The One with the Metaphorical Tunnel) Air Date: 10-10-1996 Episode 53 (The One with Frank Jr.) Air Date: 10-17-1996 Episode 54 (The One with the Flashback) Air Date: 10-31-1996 Episode 55 (The One with the Race Car Bed) Air Date: 11-07-1996 Episode 56 (The One with the Giant Poking Device) Air Date: 11-14-1996 Episode 57 (The One with the Football) Air Date: 11-21-1996 Episode 58 (The One Where Rachel Quits) Air Date: 12-12-1996 Episode 59 (The One Where Chandler Can't Remember Which Sister) Air Date: 01-09-1997 Episode 60 (The One with All the Jealousy) Air Date: 01-16-1997 Episode 61 (The One Where Monica and Richard Are Just Friends) Air Date: 01-30-1997 Episode 62 (The One with Phoebe's Ex-Partner) Air Date: 02-06-1997 Episode 63 (The One Where Ross and Rachel Take a Break) Air Date: 02-13-1997 Episode 64 (The One the Morning After) Air Date: 02-20-1997 Episode 65 (The One without the Ski Trip) Air Date: 03-06-1997 Episode 66 (The One with the Hypnosis Tape) Air Date: 03-13-1997 Episode 67 (The One with the Tiny T-Shirt) Air Date: 03-27-1997 Episode 68 (The One with the Dollhouse) Air Date: 04-10-1997 Episode 69 (The One with a Chick and a Duck) Air Date: 04-17-1997 Episode 70 (The One with the Screamer) Air Date: 04-24-1997 Episode 71 (The One with Ross's Thing) Air Date: 05-01-1997 Episode 72 (The One with the Ultimate Fighting Champion) Air Date: 05-08-1997 Episode 73 (The One at the Beach) Air Date: 05-15-1997.
