And the father is...
24 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

There's a lot to like in this second episode of the eighth series of 'Friends'.

I liked that the writers gave Ross and Chandler a story line together, with them trying to re-stage the wedding pictures after the disposable cameras (remember them?!) were lost.

Monica trying not to open the presents wasn't that interesting a story line, and not for the first time I found the character to be a bit annoying.

The revelation about who the father of Rachel's baby was wasn't that unexpected, but the scenes focusing on that story are nicely played out.

Series eight has started very well indeed.
