Not Very Funny But Interesting
28 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the season finale of the first season of 'Friends'

Plot In A Paragraph: Upset that Rachel prefers Ross's birthday gift than his, Chandler lets slip to Rachel that Ross is in love with her! Joey participates in fertility study for which he is paid $700 for his sperm, But he can't sleep with his new girlfriend and needs to come up with solution to fend off her advances.

Whilst this episode is pretty well done, since they keep on making the viewers guessing if she will do anything about it or not as she debates the merits of dating a close friend. It is not very funny, the only laughs come from Perry and Le Blanc.

But it does have a cliffhanger ending
