The Episode Where Joey Jumps The Shark
28 March 2018 | by heyitsadamSee all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed the entire Vegas premise. The concept of Joey trekking across the US to be in a movie that gets canceled the second he arrives is a very "Joey" thing to happen; however, this is the episode where the writing in "Friends" converts Joey from "lovable not-book-smart dim-bulb artist" to "fully mentally challenged adult." From this episode forward, Joey pretty much functions as a mentally challenged adult. He doesn't know how to pay his bills. He picks a roommate based on the fact that he wants to date her not even thinking about what happens if they break up. He fights with an infant over a stuffed animal. And here, he's obsessed with his "identical hand twin," which sounds so ridiculous I would have loved to have heard that pitch in the writer's room. There was nothing wrong with a character who is all looks and no brains. Joey wouldn't be the first one of those on TV, but to make him some kind of idiot savant ... this was the beginning of the end of the show.
