After his friends all go their separate ways, Joey Tribianni leaves New York for Hollywood to pursue his acting career full time. His sister Gina buys him a nice apartment, and he finds a new roommate in his 20-year old nephew Michael (Gina had him when she was 16), who is literally a rocket scientist. Michael's book smarts and Joey's people smarts allow them to help each other out whenever they can, and make them nice companions. Written by lusy4eva-1

Just not that funny
8 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

I did not expect another "Friends", but I did expect funnier dialogue. The script seems somewhat flat, and the so-called funny bits seem to elicit laughs of the forced variety. One reviewer commented that people didn't compare "Frasier" to "Cheers"; there really was no need. "Frasier" may not have had the same writers as "Cheers", but it was still fresh and witty. "Joey" does not boast the golden team of writers that "Friends" had, and perhaps that is where it's lacking. These writers aren't really digging for subtle or original humor- it's a rehash of just about every other sitcom that's been before. And I'm sorry, but that's not humorous- that's regurgitation.
