Critic Reviews for Friends Season 5

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Of all the returning series, only a handful remain in consistently good form: "Friends" stays witty despite Ross and Rachel's endless seesawing.

Season five is the best because it's Chandler and Monica trying to keep their relationship under wraps, which improbably stayed funny over the course of fourteen episodes and STILL managed to pay it off with the best episode of the series.

Season five had some incredible bits. It also had Emily, but never mind.

The writers didn't rush [the Monica and Chandler] relationship to its conclusion...and it's this comedy mined from their sneaking around and trying to keep their relationship a secret that makes Season 5 one of the show's best.

David Schwimmer pulls some comedy magic out of Ross' downward spiral.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Season 5 showcased the acting ensemble at their peak, making plenty of room for the blend of humor and heartfelt emotion that made the show a hit for 10 seasons.
