The first 'Friends' flashback episode
23 June 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

This is the first of the 'Friends' flashback/clip episodes, and although I recognise the need for the producers to stretch the budget, there's a lazy quality to these episodes, and this one is no exception.

Yes, it's nice to see the most memorable moments of the Ross/Rachel relationship, but it doesn't necessarily make for the most interesting of episodes for the audience.

The linking scenes of new material are OK, but it's laboured stuff all round.

The beauty of DVD is that you can skip episodes like this and pretend they don't exist. I do.
