Drop In Quality From Pilot
14 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The second episode of "Friends" continues on from the pilot and continues to deals with Ross's broken marriage and Rachel's failed wedding.

It also introduces us to some more new characters, we meet Ross's ex wife Carol and her new lesbian partner Carol, Rachel's former fiancée Barry and also Ross and Monica's parents too. And interestingly we get our first look at Gunther, he doesn't speak, he is just in the background at Central Park and we hear about the "ugly naked guy" for the first time too.

It's a drop in quality from the pilot, but all the cast are a bit better. Elliot Gould knocks it out of the park as Ross and Monica's Dad.

We also have a new opening featuring several scenes from episodes mixed in with the original opening of the gang in the fountain.
