Did You Know?


Gina told Eric they are in the mafia because 'it makes them more colorfull'. In real life, Drea DeMatteo was in mafia hit show The Sopranos from 1999 till 2006. See more »


Joey says at the beginning of the episode that he has dated women from all over the world except for Iceland, and is pleased to discover in the end that Sara is part Icelandic. But when he takes a map right after this discovery with red pins for each country from which he's ever dated a woman, we can see that Iceland already has a red pin. (However, this could actually be deliberately made by the film-makers to show how dumb Joey is. He has trouble multiplying 7 and 9 - he could've put the pin on Iceland thinking it's Australia.)

Elsa: [Joey waves at her] Drake Ramoray! I'm a big fan. You are huge in Iceland.

"This may not have been my best performance"
12 December 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

This isn't one of my favourite episodes of the show, and although there is some fun to be had in the story line involving Joey trying to avoid the advances of Carmen Electra now he's in a committed relationship, there are just too many examples of weak writing for me to be positive about it.

For once the character of Michael is poorly written, changing allegiances from Sara to Carmen at the drop of a hat, and the joke about Joey missing Christmas for the last four years is a load of rubbish because not too long ago we had a whole Christmas themed episode. As I've said in other reviews, I think sometimes the writers went for an easy joke at the expense of the character of Joey.

On a positive note I did enjoy the Alex/Gina dynamic, and it's nice how their friendship has built over time. The mafia jokes weren't funny though.

A weaker episode of the show overall sadly.
