I watch the joey show here in Holland. He makes me laugh like no other. Then I here those negative critics. Why is that? I'm I looking through my ''friends-eyes'' or are those critics right.

Matt Le Blanc delivers a somewhat desperate yet "Friends" like performance. For those who have come to adore Friends the first 2 episodes of "Joey" just 'don't feel right'. As you become familiar with the characters you find yourself drawn to the show.You just need to be patient. When Friends started people were not particularly keen on it until the 4th and 5th series. "Joey" is a very funny, wonderful and creative attempt to fill the gap that has been missing in our lives since Friends ended. WE JUST NEED TO BE PATIENT.

I don't know how well it did in the U.K. but in the United States FRIENDS was a top 20 hit from the premiere in 1994.(It didn't hurt that it was sandwiched between two other hit shows: MAD ABOUT YOU and SEINFELD)
What kept FRIENDS in the top 20 was the sharp and funny writing. In the later seasons the writers began getting desperate.(In one bad taste episode Moonica has to fashion a fake foreskin for Joey so he will appear to be uncircumsized for a nude scene in a play. Curious in that in real life Matt LeBlanc is uncircumsized!)
Unfortunately the writers for JOEY never quite figured out how to make the show work and ended up rehashing a lot of the Joey-is-dumb schitck that grew tiresome in later years of FRIENDS (Watch the first few episodes of FRIENDS: Joey is maybe not well educated but he is crafty.) They missed out on making it an ensemble show and drawing oin the acting strengths of the supporting cast, they way FRAZIER used its cast to support the star.
Maybe it's just time for everyone to move on. I do hope the show all teh remaining episodes over the summer.
