Amazon Friends’ peerless writing staff really spreads the wealth in this pivotal third season. Each of this seamless ensemble’s cast members was given a story arc that deepened and enriched their characters. Donald Liebenson
DVD Verdict This fourth season was the first time the writers felt secure enough in their fan base to begin including these inside jokes regularly, and it coheres much more than any previous season. Thus, I consider season four the best of the first four years. Elizabeth Skipper
DVD Talk As Friends approached its fifth season, the show was not only a bona-fide hit, but it had become an American institution. The top-rated program had spawned characters which had taken on lives of their own and were very familiar to most Americans. In a sense, they had become our “friends”. Mike Long
DVD Town Season Seven of “Friends” has a couple of amusing guest appearances, but it is also considered to be one of the show’s weaker seasons. After all, it takes an entire year for the writers to get to Monica and Chandler’s wedding even though it is the most logical destination for the two characters. Yunda Eddie Feng
