The One with the Sharks
6 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

While I liked th Phoebe story I was kind of upset they made her this way. Why couldn't she be happy with her life? Why do all women of the show have to be desperate for a long term relationship? It would be nice if Phoebe stayed the way Joey is: happy with her life, not trying to lock herself in a relationship

But other than that it was a good story. David Schwimmer made me laugh a lot especially with his Vicrum message.

I also liked how Joey gets into the girls apartment, realizes that he has been there before and tries to remember why. I especially love him with the cactus. Great facial expression and narration

The story with shark porn on the other hand was just stupid.
