When these were first broadcast, Friends was competing against the Survivor 2 phenomenon and promised extra long "super-sized" episodes of Friends. Basically, the show (with commercials) would run about 10 minutes longer. At the time, NBC promised that these extra minutes of footage would never be seen again. I don't think I saw any of the episodes original broadcasts, so I don't know if there's anything missing. I know the DVDs typically include new footage, but not as much as I think they were broadcasting with S7. Does anyone know? Are the season 7 episodes longer, even by typical Friends DVD measurements?
