Friends Forever: The One About The Episodes Book Review


The one for the fans.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the ever popular “Friends,” authors Gary Susman, Jeannine Dillon and Bryan Cairns have compiled a new book titled “Friends Forever: The One About The Episodes Book.” Along with an introduction of sorts, the Harper Design book gives a season by season breakdown of every episode from all ten seasons. Content includes episode breakdowns, credits, plot summary, commentary blurbs, photos, and factoids. Scattered throughout are top 10 lists (such as Top 10 Thanksgiving foods in the series) and asides like game rules and a guest star index.

It’s no secret that “Friends” struck a chord with audiences. It was a cultural milestone that has continued to endure to this day. Fans simply can’t seem to get enough of Chandler, Joey, Phoebe, Monica, Rachel and Ross. For those that want to learn more about the series as a whole, this book is ideal. Not only do you get behind-the-scenes stories about how the show was created, the creators themselves, the casting, the iconic theme song, and filming locations (mostly on the WB lot), but you also learn a wealth of information about everything from Monica’s CD collection to the fact that Pearl Jam gave permission for “Yellow Ledbetter” to be used for the first time in the series finale. It’s truly a treasure trove of goodies for fans.

With the holiday season in full swing, this is the perfect gift for the “Friends” fan on your list. It’s the type of book you can pick up at anytime to find out something new or figure out the title of an episode you are thinking of. Recommended.
