    The versions of the four supershows of Friends that are on the season 7 DVDs, are those the entire 40 minutes extended shows? They last about 29-30 minutes, so that would mean 10 minutes of commercials, is that realistic? (I'm not from the US so I haven't seen the extended versions).

    Also, in an episode guide it says something was certainly cut out of "The one where they all turn thirty" as a guest star is missing and the episode is only about 24 minutes. Anyone know why?

    Hadn't heard anything about this. Which guest star is missing?

    from epguides.com: (i'm curious about this myself)...

    "NOTE: When originally aired on NBC, this episode was 40 minutes long, as counter-programming to Survivor II.

    This episode runs 23:40 on DVD (a typical sitcom runs about 22:00). It appears that a couple of minutes have been shaved off, due to the short running time (unless they showed 16 minutes of commercials on first airing), and a guest actress (Vanessa White) disappearing from the end credits."

    Yes, that's what I read too, but the forums wouldn't allow me to link to it. I'm glad to hear the other episodes seem to be intact though.
