A fun end to series 3

This episode is a fun way to end the third series of the show, with the door being left open for a Ross and Rachel reunion.

The Pheobe story line though important for the character overall isn't that funny, despite Lisa Kudrow giving her all as always.

I liked the Monica and Chandler scenes too, and it's interesting to look back at this episode knowing what happens with these characters later on.

I wouldn't say that this is the best episode of the show ever, but it is an improvement on a couple towards the end of series 3 and was enjoyable.

The One at the Beach

Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Phoebe goes with her friends to the beach house to meet old friend phoebe of her mother in hopes she will tell her where her father is. This leads to some great fun story. This Phoebe is a very special character and at the end she tells Phoebe an amazing secret

And it gets interesting between Rachel and Ross again. They have a conversation after Rachel convinces Bonnie to shave her head again. It is kind of sad to be reminded again that Friends are a shallow close minded, conservative crowd for whom a woman shaving her head is such a big deal. But the sad truth is that out of all of them Phoebe is the only one who didn't get brainwashed by the society. But this shallowness leads to something good. We get to hear a great dialogue between Ross and Rachel. And at the end we get a nice cliffhanger when Ross chooses whose room to go into and we don't know whose it is
