The One with Monica's Boots
3 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't like this episode very much because instead of being funny lots of characters annoyed me, even the ones I usually like

It is funny that Monica was the one who didn't annoy me the most in this episode. The story with the boots just wasn't funny for me, thats all.

Joey on the other hand was someone I really disliked in this episode. So old fashioned, sexist and hypocritical. I really don't like it when they show him like that, he is usually a very sweet character. I just liked Bobby who was played by Marc Rose in this episode. He was pretty funny and well done. I just don't get why Rachel didn't want to hug him, is it because she is too snobby? Nothing wrong with hugging

Phoebe was annoying as well. They tried to make a crazy Sting fan out of her. Really didn't like her this way. The only funny part here was "Ross-can!"
