Another So So Episode
17 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

These type of story lines are the worst ones "Friends" do as Monica and Rachel attempt to talk Chandler through his issues with Janice, saying cliché things like "If a woman did, what you did, a guy would be sleeping with someone else by now!!" Plot In A Paragraph: Chandler struggles to show his commitment to Janice and he ends up scaring her off when he goes to far. Meanwhile Ross is upset that Ben is playing with a Barbie doll and Joey asks Phoebe for some help with getting an audition when he fails to get a message in time.

Normally a storyline with Matthew Perry taking centre stage, but this episode misses the mark.
