Storyline

Joey has his father flying over first class from New York to the big premiere of his action movie. When dad arrives, Joey gives him details about the movie and the premiere, but Joey Sr., a master-plumber, doesn't seem quite interested. Joey doesn't realize it, but his father never has shown any interest in his career, Joey Sr. always has an excuse to avoid the issue. Joey is in the street with Michael seeing the movie billboard, which has a big portrait of Joey. That day, Joey and Carmen Electra set up a date for the next night. Later a big billboard of a new Carmen's perfume, with a very suggestive photograph, outshines Joey's billboard, monopolizing the attention of the public. During the premiere night, Joey explains to his father all the details about some dangerous scenes, but bored he only pretends to listen. Alex seems to be the only person interested in Joey's movie. When the movie ends up, Joey and his father have a very serious talk in the bathroom. Angry Joey says maybe it... Written by Alejandro Frias

The first of the 'lost' Joey episodes
10 June 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having been criticised for its lack of continuity to 'Friends', it was nice to see Robert Costanzo reprise his role as Joey senior that he first played back in Season 1 of 'Friends'.

And it is this relationship between the two generations of Joey's that is at the centre of the episode. There is a nice scene between them at the end that makes you realise the potential that was there in widening the show up to develop stories around Joey's wider family. Alas it was not to be.

It's very much a two hander at times between LeBlanc and Costanzo, and because of this the other characters are given more of a backseat role. This highlights the problem raised by fans that because we were never properly introduced to them at the start the other characters are now not strong enough to carry plots on their own. There's a tiny B plot regarding Bobbie's dress, but that's it. Even Carmen Electra's return is rushed.

Overall, a decent enough episode, but one that had a great premise that didn't pay off.
