Quick note: I've reupped my initial endorsement of Netflix, which I previously detracted in the midst of the whole removal debacle. Thanks to twitter and a charm of reconsideration enacted by my friend Rebecca (formerly of Witchworks at the Alberdany Plaza stripmall), the community was able to keep the show on the platform. A quick note to those I saw threatening suicide on twitter and tumblr: While I'm sure a good portion of you were just saying what you thought you had to say for the sake of the show, I hope the rest of you know that that's never the answer to any adversity you might face. I and everyone who loves you would be very sad if you stayed committed to that realm of thought.
Anyway, onto the original article.
Whether you're a Friends first timer or a seasoned fan curious about how to partake in a rewatch, Netflix currently has all ten seasons of the show available for your viewing pleasure. For those new to the web, Netflix is a service that allows you to watch TV and movies at your own convenience for the monthly cost of two Quarter Pounder value meals.
For those looking for ownership, DVD and Blu-ray hard disk options are also available and vary in price depending on a variety of factors. Amazon is the usual go-to for most, but if you're willing to wait in lines and fight with crowds, Black Friday retailers usually sell individual seasons or complete series boxes at a reasonably discounted price.
Hard-core fans might want to consider a less common route, which is that of VHS editions. While shipping costs steepen with the increse in size of said physical media, this is a guaranteed way to recreate a viewing experience closest to that intended by creators/producers Marta Kauffman and David Crane. Bonus points if you score TV bootlegs with pre-9/11 commercials.
