Friends - The Complete Second Season

( 18 )

Overview

The second season of Friends was when the cast hit its stride, after being written into some interesting potential corners on several plot-lines. The first season's main themes were built around lack-of-fulfillment, culminating with the big fulfillment in Ross' (David Schwimmer) life and, by extension, the lives of the others, with the birth of his son. The second season was built around movement in the lives of most of the characters, as Ross and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) finally find each other, Joey (Matt ...

Overview

The second season of Friends was when the cast hit its stride, after being written into some interesting potential corners on several plot-lines. The first season's main themes were built around lack-of-fulfillment, culminating with the big fulfillment in Ross' (David Schwimmer) life and, by extension, the lives of the others, with the birth of his son. The second season was built around movement in the lives of most of the characters, as Ross and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) finally find each other, Joey (Matt LeBlanc) gets a real acting job, and Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) shows off skills and sides of herself beyond playing music and being a masseuse. One can also see the subtle new pecking order -- Courteney Cox, who was the closest thing to a star when the show went on the air, is a little bit more in the background, while Aniston is more in the foreground. The picture quality is excellent and the producers have, again, taken great pains with the sound to assure that any music sequences -- such as Chrissie Hynde's performance of "Angel of the Morning," in a brilliant guest-star spot (in "The One With the Baby on the Bus") and Lisa Kudrow's songs -- are especially crisp and well-defined. There are two episodes featuring commentary by the producers that delineate the creative process and showcase one of the better romantic/dramatic episodes in the run of the series to date. Overall, the entire package is an awesome array of comedy, built on several layers -- from one-line comebacks to the characters' interrelationships -- that interlock with and complement each other beautifully. The packaging includes just enough information about each show so that longtime viewers will be able to tell what they're selecting, while those with short memories can just plunge into the comedy.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Andy Sullivan
In the second season, Friends became family. It was a year of funky bachelor pads and lesbian weddings; inappropriate tailors and soap-opera doctors; smelly cats and movie star monkeys. The sophomore season captured our imagination, established the affairs that aroused our subconscious desires, and cemented our relationship with the gang of Friends. The sexual tension between Ross and Rachel is the season’s centerpiece, as they clumsily volley the onus of love and commitment. From Rachel’s delight in "The One With Phoebe's Husband," wherein she discovers that Ross has yet to consummate an already lengthy relationship with his girlfriend, to "The One With The List," when Ross’ hysterical list of Rachel’s pros and cons falls into the wrong hands, we’re carried through the polar highs and lows of an atypical courtship. Just as it seems their love will remain forever unrequited, Ross and Rachel are united in perhaps the greatest Friends episode, "The One With The Prom Video." Flashbacks from home video horrors resurface as we watch a portly Monica and hook-nosed Rachel prepare for the Prom, while Ross, a poster boy for '80s fads, looks on. The DVD version of Friends: The Complete Season Two is loaded with special features, including commentary from the show’s producers, an interactive tour of Monica and Rachel’s "to-die-for" apartment, a video guide to season two’s special guest appearances, a "How Well Do You Know Your Friends?" video trivia challenge, and more. Episodes are as follows:
  • "The One with Ross's New Girlfriend" -- Ross comes back from China with a new girlfriend and Rachel has a hard time dealing with it. Meanwhile, Phoebe gives Monica a really bad haircut and Joey makes a discovery about his family tailor.
  • "The One with the Breast Milk" -- A heated discussion ensues after Phoebe tastes Carol's breast milk while preparing a bottle for Ben. Meanwhile everyone but Rachel has become friends with Ross's new girlfriend, Julie -- and Monica feels guilty about it.
  • "The One Where Mr. Heckles Dies" -- Upstairs neighbor Mr. Heckles dies, leaving his estate to Monica and Rachel, which leads to a discussion over who actually owns the girls' apartment. Meanwhile Chandler fears he is living Mr. Heckles life.
  • "The One with the Five Steaks and An Eggplant" -- Monica gets promoted and invites the gang to an expensive restaurant to celebrate -- causing Rachel, Phoebe, and Joey to feel the disparity between their incomes and those of Monica, Ross, and Chandler.
  • "The One with Phoebe's Husband" -- Phoebe's unknown husband -- a gay, Canadian figure skater whom she married years ago so he could apply for a green card -- returns to ask for a divorce. Meanwhile, Ross confides in Rachel that he and Julie haven't had sex yet.
  • "The One with the Baby On The Bus" -- Ross has an allergic reaction to one of Monica's pies, so she rushes him to the hospital, leaving Ben with Chandler and Joey -- who try to use him to pick up women and wind up leaving him on the bus.
  • "The One Where Ross Finds Out" -- After Ross and Julie decide to get a cat together, Rachel gets drunk and calls his answering machine to tell him how "over him" she is. Meanwhile, Chandler works out with Monica, and Phoebe has boyfriend troubles.
  • "The One with the List" -- Ross has difficulty choosing between Rachel and Julie, so Chandler talks him into making up a list of pros and cons. Unfortunately, Rachel finds the list and refuses to talk to him, even after he's broken things off with Julie.
  • "The One with Phoebe's Dad" -- It's almost Christmas and Phoebe has found out that her father is living in upstate New York, so she borrows her grandmother's cab and forces Chandler and Joey to accompany her on a road trip to see him.
  • "The One with the Prom Video" -- Rachel had decided not to take Ross back, until a long-forgotten video surfaces, documenting his attempt to rescue her the night her prom date didn't show up. Meanwhile, Joey gives Chandler a hideous bracelet.
  • "The One with Russ" -- Rachel convinces the gang that she's over Ross, until they meet her new boyfriend, Russ, who is virtually a clone of Ross. Meanwhile, Joey gets an audition for a role in Days Of Our Lives.
  • "The One with the Lesbian Wedding" -- Susan and Carol announce that they are getting married and Ross refuses to go, until Carol reveals a secret that changes his mind. Meanwhile, one of Phoebe's patients dies, and her spirit enters Phoebe's body.
  • "The One After the Super Bowl - Part 1" -- Joey begins dating a woman who believes that he really is Dr. Drake Ramoray, his character on Days Of Our Lives. Meanwhile, Ross discovers that Marcel has a new career in movies and infiltrates a set to visit him.
  • "The One After the Super Bowl - Part II" -- Ross and Marcel have trouble reuniting, but Chandler reunites with a girl from his 4th-grade class who is now a make-up artist on Marcel's movie. Meanwhile, Rachel and Monica vie for Jean-Claude Van Damme's affections.
  • "The One Where Ross and Rachel...You Know" -- Ross and Rachel can't seem to make it past the first kiss, until he is unexpectedly called to the museum late at night and she surprises him in the Planetarium. Meanwhile, Monica hits it off with Dr. Burke.
  • "The One Where Joey Moves Out" -- Now that Joey is making good money as an actor, he decides to move out, prompting a game of foosball between him and Chandler to see who gets the table. Meanwhile, Monica's fling with Richard is discovered at a party.
  • "The One Where Eddie Moves In" -- Ross and Rachel convince Chandler to get a new roommate, Eddie -- only to discover that Joey misses him and wants to move back. Meanwhile Phoebe records "Smelly Cat" for a record producer.
  • "The One Where Dr. Ramoray Dies" -- Joey angers the writers of Days Of Our Lives, so they write him out of the show by dropping him down an elevator shaft. Meanwhile, Chandler discovers that Eddie is a psycho.
  • "The One Where Eddie Won't Go" -- Chandler tries in vain to get Eddie to move out, so he and Joey devise a plan to have Joey move back in and pretend that Eddie doesn't exist. Meanwhile, the girls read a new "female power" book.
  • "The One Where Old Yeller Dies" -- Phoebe, whose mother never let her see the end of sad movies, sees the ending of Old Yeller and is distraught. Meanwhile, Joey and Chandler start hanging out with Richard, and Ross is tired of missing Ben's "firsts."
  • "The One with the Bullies" -- Two guys come into Central Perk and tell Ross and Chandler never to come back in again, so they avoid their favorite hangout until they can't take it anymore. Meanwhile, Phoebe meets her half-brother.
  • "The One with the Two Parties" -- It's Rachel's birthday and Monica decides to throw her a big party. Trouble is, Rachel's parents are divorcing, so she only invites her mom. When dad shows up, the gang sets up an impromptu party at Joey and Chandler's.
  • "The One with Barry And Mindy's Wedding" -- Rachel lives up to her end of the agreement to be Mindy's maid of honor -- only to be dissed by the best man and guests. Meanwhile, Joey has to practice kissing men for a role.
  • "The One with the Chicken Pox" -- Phoebe's "submarine guy" boyfriend resurfaces for two weeks, but she has contracted chicken pox from Ben. Meanwhile, Chandler talks Joey into using his acting skills to get a job at his company, with disastrous results.

    I Also Recommend:

    THIS SEASON WAS THE BEST BECAUSE JENNIFER ANISTON WAS JOINED BY CATHERINE BELL IN ONE EPISODE.

    "The One with the Baby On The Bus" -- Ross has an allergic reaction to one of Monica's pies, so she rushes him to the hospital, leaving Ben with Chandler and Joey -- who try to use him to pick up women and wind up leaving him on the bus. Catherine Bell is one of the "Chics" on the bus when Joey & Chandler realize "Where is the baby?". Also Lea Thompson meets Joey on the street with baby.
    "The One Where Ross and Rachel...You Know" -- Ross and Rachel can't seem to make it past the first kiss, until he is unexpectedly called to the museum late at night and she surprises him in the Planetarium. Meanwhile, Monica hits it off with Dr. Burke. This is another great episode.

    #1 Friends Fan

    I am absolutely in love with this show. I cannot get enough of it. I watch it at least once a day everyday. If only everyone had friends like these 6, the world would be a better place. I don't know what it will be like when they finally end it! if your not a fan, once you watch an episode you will be!

    This season I am thankful for my FRIENDS

    Next to I Love Lucy, Friends is my favorite show, timeless and hilarious I could watch it over and over again. The entire second season is definetly worth having, what a gift to be able to watch memorable episodes any time you want. I just can't wait 'til the third, forth seasons and so on are released. And I just can't wait until they release Will and Grace favorites and complete seasons as well. They are all worth every penny.

    Everyone's best friends

    Friends is flat out the best show on tv!Even if you don't agree with that, you gotta admit that it's a great show. I have completely fallen in love with the six friends-in their separate lives and all together.It's funny, fresh, keeps you on edge- waiting to see what'll come next. I love all the characters so much, it's hard for me to pick a favorite. Who's yours? Is it Flaky Pheobe? Funny Chandler? Good looking (but let's not discuss his iq!) Joey? neat-freak Monica? Ritzy Rachel? or Brainy Ross? It's hard to choose, isn't it? Whoever it is doesn't really matter. Just be sure to tune in every Thursday and buy this great movie 4-pack that you can always watch again and again. They'll be there for you!
