Hey 😃

Just wanted to say that this sounds like an absolutely amazing accomplishment and feat and I would LOVE to see the end product, so if you have a link, I’d be over the moon to receive it.

I’ve stuck to the DVD versions as the content is more important than the quality to me but of course, both would be perfection.

I’ve started watching Friends for the first time this year on HBOMax. This is the first I’ve heard there is a cut/uncut version.
Since it’s HD, I’m assuming HMax is edited(?)

Not edited, they’re just the original TV versions. On the DVDs there were extended cuts with an extra minute or two for each episode. The BDs/streams use the TV versions.

That’s actually incorrect. Aside from the Pilot, of which I’ve seen three different versions of, there were several episodes during some middle seasons that had broadcast versions that were “super-sized” that ran about 5-7 minutes longer. These are what are released on DVDs… the actual broadcast versions. What’s in HD are any and all Syndication versions which have been trimmed down to fit more commercials in. The super-sized versions are been heavily edited to fit that mantra as a result.

I am always worrying about whats lost between editions and I used to watch friends when I was younger and definitely remember the fire alarm couch scene, I don’t know how it went unnoticed when I watched the netflix version, is there any chance I can get the link to this edit as well?

Hey! Just read your post and think that’s an amazing idea! I absolutely love Friends and have watched the series SO MANY TIMES. I had to scour the internet to find a boxset that actually included all the deleted scenes. But this version sounds amazing! I was wondering if you would be kind enough to send me the link please? :3

If you would be so kind as to share the link to your blended release, it would make my day!

Over the quarantine period I took it upon myself to start a huge project. I loved the Blu Ray quality of the tv show Friends, but if I wanted to watch the Full show uncut I would have to just watch the uncut dvd versions. I thought if I put all the work in to blend them together now, I could get the best of both worlds for every re-watch here after. I didn’t think it would be too difficult but I felt like a Director and an editor at the same time as it went along. There were so many alterations that came down to my choice but I’m extremely proud of what I accomplished. One part to note is I got used to ignoring the multiple credits as I wanted to keep as much of the HD version as possible, and it does switch the aspect ratio from widescreen to full screen anytime the uncut footage was used.

If there was an episode that had a visual error in them, like a cameraman or the end of a set for example I cropped them out. I have kept both versions though.

Hey! What a fantastic accomplishment. I would love to see these.

Psychos do not explode when sunlight hits them! I don’t give a fuck how crazy they are!
