Joey scorns Michael's 'nerdy' book club meeting at their home, till he notices a few foxy members and insists to be let in so he can date them, and encourages club president Michael to change the bylaw against relationships and make a pass at his vice-president Jane. Alas the girl proves so shallow as to ask Michael to be introduced to Joey instead, who already has tabs on two other members. When Gina, who is jealous of a colleague whose clients include Hollywood celebrities, makes Joey present a portfolio of her hairstyles, all modeled by Michael, to his Hollywood agent Bobbie, she laughs at asking any star, but eagerly turns her horny attention to delectable Michael. Alex however is easily railroaded to ask a friend who is a producer. Finding out about Jane, Michael exposes Joey for not reading the book and asks him expelled, only to learn to his disgust nobody else reads the weekly books anymore and leaves himself...

"Hey there little snail"
1 December 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

Joey, in an attempt to meet people, joins in with Michael's book club, and ends up being very popular with the ladies, especially the girl that Michael himself liked.

Matt Le Blanc and Paulo Costanzo had good 'odd couple' style chemistry, and that shines through here. There are some funny moments not only in that story, but also the start of Bobbie's odd attraction to Michael.

At this stage the writers were still giving the supporting characters their own story (without Joey having to be involved!), and I liked the Gina and Alex dynamic in their story.

For me this episode also gave a hint that the show probably wouldn't last long in the line "hey there little snail". It was the first sign that the writers were at sea when writing for the Joey character, never knowing whether to make him smarter than he was on 'Friends', or ridiculously thick to the point of no return.

Overall another good episode of this much maligned, but actually quite good show.
