Storyline

When Alex delights in Gina's home-made lasagna, she's taught to cook it for her husband, but later claims to have improved it with a secret ingredient- a duel is declared, to be jury-tasted by eager Joey and reluctant Michael. Joey ignores a warning from producer-director Lauren Beck not to get romantically involved with his show daughter-performer Katie, who strikes jealously when she erroneously thinks Joey hits on Lauren. Joey can't talk her over, asks his agent Bobbie, but she makes it even worse... Meanwhile the home-front forced Michael to pick from the equally good lasagnas, alas not ma's...

"It feels good to laugh"
6 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Scott Silveri and Shana Goldberg Meehan must have had a vision for the direction they wanted 'Joey' to go in, and by writing episodes in its first series they were able to help shape this.

Their knowledge of the character shines through in this episode, directed by David Schwimmer, that sees Joey's personal life mess up his professional. There are no jokes that are unworthy of the character, and the supporting characters all get their moments.

It's another strong episode of the show, with Lucy Lu adding a lot in her role as Lauren. As with Alex previously though they seemed all too quick to shoe horn her into being a love interest, when in fact she could've worked out quite nicely as a obsessive producer of Joey's show in a recurring role. Perhaps she couldn't commit to being a permanent fixture.

It was also good that Bobbie actually appeared in Joey's outside world, rather than being stuck in her office.

This is by far one of the best episodes from 'Joey' series one.
