Storyline

Joey is excited when Gina tells she expects a visit from her New York friend Donna Di Gregorio, the only one who impressed Joey too much to seduce her as a teenager, hot and just dumb enough. Michael is surprised to see on old videos he was talented for baseball at age five, but Gina decided to pull him out of Little League as physically too dangerous, thus setting him on the course to life-long nerdiness as his talent is meanwhile totally gone. The Tribbianis soon find out Donna's marriage has recently gone to the dogs, but Gina makes Joey promise to leave her alone. However when Donna finds out Joey always had a crush on her and takes the initiative herself, nature takes it course. Gina is disappointed when she finds out, and Donna has news...

"Hold it together, you're semi-famous now"
3 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

One of the criticisms aimed at 'Joey' (many often unfairly) is that the title character fell in love a bit too easily across the two series, having only fallen once in ten years of 'Friends'.

It is however a nice way of developing the character, which of course was the aim of this spin-off in the first place. Here he falls for his high school crush, who turns up again to visit Gina when her marriage hits the rocks.

I thought Matt Le Blanc was great here (again in every scene!), and carried off the romantic elements of the episodes well. The character is a little smarter here, and it pays off.

There are however some examples of jokes that are unworthy of the character, lazy jokes that diminish him, and the blame for that has to be placed at the producers door sadly.

The 'Michael was good at sports as a kid' story line also had its moments, with Paulo Costanzo proving what a good actor he is.

A nice start to the two parter.
