Friends: Season 2 is a strange season. It starts off slow and has quite a few bad episodes, but near the end of the seasons great episodes popped out left and right. Friends: Season 2 is well worth purchasing. Not just to re-live the Season 1 cliffhanger, but to watch some of the great episodes that it contains. Rachel and Ross hook-up, Phoebe "meets her dad", Ross gets to meet Marcel again, and so on. Definitely one worth buying.
