'Friends' Episodes on Netflix Are Shorter Than the DVD Version

If you’re anything like us, you’ve most likely watched a few (or more) episodes of Friends after it was added to Netflix on New Year’s Day.

Well something that people are noticing is that some of the episodes are shorter than the version on the DVDs. Many episodes on the DVDs last for 25 minutes while the Netflix episodes are just 22 minutes long.

The issue was addressed by a couple of years ago when the Blu-ray set was released and it also didn’t feature the longer episodes.

“The deleted footage was, frankly, added specifically for one home video release,” explained co-executive producer/director Kevin S. Bright. “If fans are particularly interested in additional footage, those versions are still available. But for this, we wanted something that we, the creators, felt represented the show as we always wanted it to be remembered, which is the original NBC broadcast versions.”

Netflix confirmed to Consumerist that the episodes on the streaming service are all the same length as the televised episodes.

David Schwimmer to Play Robert Kardashian in FX's 'American Crime Story'!

David Schwimmer will be playing the role of Robert Kardashian in the upcoming television series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson!

The series will be following the O.J. Simpson murder trial from the perspective of the lawyers. It “will display how a combination of prosecution confidence, defense wiliness and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt,” according to THR.

Robert Kardashian, the late father of Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, and Rob, was O.J.‘s attorney and friend. He passed away in 2003 at age 59, eight weeks after being diagnosed with esophageal cancer.

Cuba Gooding Jr. was previously cast as Simpson while Sarah Paulson will be playing prosecutor Marcia Clark.

“The minute that I read that, everything fell into place,” Jane said on stage of her mother, who committed suicide when she was 12. “I knew why the promiscuity, the endless plastic surgery, the guilt, the inability to love or be intimate, and I was able to forgive her and forgive myself.”

FYI: Emmy is wearing a Lyn Devon dress, Christian Louboutin shoes and bag, and EF Collection jewels. Amber is wearing a Smythe skirt.

Anna Gunn Gets a Lift from Billy Magnussen at 'Sex with Strangers' Opening Night!

Anna Gunn gets swept off her feet by her hunky co-star Billy Magnussen at the opening night celebration for their new play Sex with Strangers on Wednesday (July 30) at Four at Yotel in New York City.

The co-stars were joined at the event by the show’s director David Schwimmer and his wife Zoe Buckman.

Here is the show’s synopsis: When star sex blogger and memoirist Ethan (Magnussen) tracks down his idol, the gifted but obscure novelist Olivia (Gunn), he finds they both crave what the other possesses. As attraction turns to sex, and they inch closer to getting what they want, both must confront the dark side of ambition and the near impossibility of reinventing oneself when the past is only a click away.
