I dont see what the big deal is - but I never really liked friends all that much anyway beyond the first couple of seasons.

[quote:82c4e02427="zap2it.com"][b:82c4e02427]'Friends' Finale Gets Quick DVD Turnaround[/b:82c4e02427]

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - If your power goes out and you miss the "Friends" series finale on May 6, Warner Bros. Home Video has your back.
A DVD of the hour-long finale (44 minutes or so without commercials) will hit stores within a week after the episode airs, Warner Bros. says. The episode is scheduled for release on DVD Tuesday, May 11.

While such a short time between initial airing and home video is pretty much unheard of, the finale of "Friends" has actually been in the can for close to two months. The cast taped the final episode in February, filming some scenes outside the presence of an audience to keep the show's ending a secret.

NBC has been hyping the "Friends" finale all season and will turn the last episode into a two-hour affair, including a retrospective special. The episode should draw huge ratings, and Warner Bros., which produces the series, obviously expects a hefty demand for the finale on DVD.
Sales of recent "Friends" DVD collections seem to bear out such predictions. The seventh-season collection, which hits stores Tuesday (April 6), is already No. 4 in Amazon.com's DVD sales rankings, thanks to pre-orders, while the sixth-season set, released in January, ranks at No. 34.

It's unclear whether the DVD of the finale will include any extra material.[/quote:82c4e02427]

Hey

Channel Nine will be following what the US did. With 3 episodes left to screen Channel 9 will stop the series and screen the 6 most popular episodes and then return to the final 3 episodes.

What gets me is that no one ever seems to realise that we are NOT IN A RATINGS PERIOD right now. This is the reason for the repeat shows. Why would Channel 9 (or other channels) run first run episodes when it isn't the ratings period.

Hey

I agree that last week and this week is a non ratings period however Channel Nine are screening a REPEAT CSI on Tuesday and a repeat Without a Trace next week as well.

They were screening repeat CSI in Feb and March before Stingers returned.

Channel 10 persist with 1 repeat of Law and Order on Monday as well as the new one Wednesday and repeat SVU Thursdays throughout the year.

Sex and the City also has repeat each week.

I think this is the gripe. Not the 2 weeks

A couple of years ago (the year Bruce Willis guest starred), Friends got kinda lame and unfunny. But I think it's improved a bit this season, although the whole Rachel/Ross thing should have died down at least half a decade ago.
