The One with Joey's New Brain
23 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Joey's story is absolutely great. I love the idea they have for his character in DOOL. Brain implant? That makes it so ridiculous, but it is a soap, so it should be possible! And the fact that Susan Sarandon is on is great as well. She got a very good role. When she is teaching Joey to play her character it is just great. I also like how girls see her and go crazy, Monica even wants to be slapped. And her and Joey kiss!

The story of Ross playing bag pipes was not bad. I liked how he was performing in front of them all. His face was so funny, and so was Phoebe's "singing". I actually wonder when I look at it if Jennifer Anniston was actually laughing while it was happening
