Bye Bye Paulo
21 November 2014 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) and Paolo's relationship comes to a halt after he gropes Phoebe's (Lisa Kudrow) bum. Ross (David Schwimmer) has a hard time not finding out the sex of his and Carol's baby. Joey (Matt Le Blanc) and Chandler (Matthew Perry) make a decision that will have a massive impact on their future lives as room mates when they get a new table.

After saying I was disappointed the character of Paulo continued to return, as I'm not a fan of his. Through no fault of the actor playing him Cosimo Fuco did what he could, but I just never took to the character. He exits stage left and this reviewer for one won't miss him, and at least the actor went out having fun. Now they can move forward with Ross and Rachel.
