The One with the Yeti
12 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have mixed feelings about the fur story. On one hand it is a nice idea for a story and it is great that Phoebe didn't take it at the end because her morality in form of the squirrel won. On the other hand I have trouble believing that Phoebe would have want to wear it. And it feels like an advertisement for fur, "look it feels so good that even someone who cares about the lives of animals will want to wear it!". This is probably not what they intended but it still gave me that feeling. And I don't like to see cruelty to animals being promoted

The Yeti story was not really funny either. I really do consider Rachel to be shallow, but being scared of some hairy/bearded guy in the dark basement can happen to anyone. So I think they kind of missed it here.

I did like the end of Ross and Emily. Unlike most Friends fans I didn't hate her, I can totally understand her. Her relationship with Ross was very short to expect her to fully trust him after all that happened at her wedding and after. This relationship had to die and it was nobody's fault. I liked the way they made the conversation and also added some comic relief with Joey looking at the balcony and showing emotions with the back of the head
