JOEY: Any Good?... (Review & Episode ratings)
Friends ended, they all went seperate ways, it was sad, it was an end of an era, but Matt LeBlanc sets out to make a new era..the Joey era. so far i've only seen 2 episodes of "Joey" which follows Joey Joey Tribbiani in hollywood trying to get his "Big Break". the first thing that bothered me about Joey was the theme tune and openning video..too cheesy, its not 1993 anymore. it also to me looked to over the top and "big headed" it conveyed to much confidence to early. ok now for the content, well its ok. one joke though that many have pointed out, was this line:
Joey: i was told my agent as shark, which means she's a good agent not an actual shark.
Gina: I know that
Joey: yeah..so did i
now we know joey is meant to be a little slow but i think this joke was going abit far, if he thought that..he'd never get anything done! but enough bad stuff heres the good stuff. well its funny at times, very funny. this is becuase of the introduction of Michael Tribbiani played by Paulo Costanzo (Road Trip) he is great here. he has very good comic timming and though its to early to tell chemistry wise how him and Matt go but from the 1st 2, its good. he says his lines with this comic insecurity which i love and this provides for some great moments, like this one:
Joey: leave him alone, he's 20, he shaves and has sex with women
Micheal: I do shave...
Drea de Matteo (The Sopranos) is an interesting addition. she's funniest when reacting to something, rather than stand-alone jokes. but i think she'll get better as the show goes on, but so far she was ok. i think in general JOEY was good, it did seem to use the joey style of humour well (stupid statements, so on) but i hope that, that does evolve and get less like how he was on friends and more into his own show, his own style. i also look forward to seeing the episodes directed by Friends star David Schwimmer. Another problem i had with JOEY was his apartment, to strange! i couldn't tell whether it was outside or what! I will be adding Episode rating as they go along and that will change my over all rating of JOEY
Overall 1.5 / 10
"Pilot" (Ep: 1.1) = 5 / 10
"Joey and the Student" (Ep:1.2) = 6.5 / 10
"Joey and the Party" (Ep:1.3) = 3.5 / 10 (Though Molly was very funny character)
lol ok missed 2 in a row, c'mon? its hardly momrable? i think i may be the only one trying ot watch them all :-)
Ok i've given up watching this terrible show but i'm gonna keep this article open for discussion!
