OK, sitcom fans, let's gather to appreciate Joey for what it is: A pretty darn good showcase for the talents of star Matt LeBlanc and his fabulous supporting cast. If the show isn't Friends, so what? Few sitcoms are. LeBlanc and his costars are still funny, engaging, and sometimes downright hilarious. If Adriana had to leave The Sopranos, the silver lining is that actress Drea de Matteo resurfaces here as straight-outta-Queens whacky sister Gina. Also in the stellar cast is one of America's finest comedic actresses, Jennifer Coolidge, who plays the sharky Hollywood agent and straightwoman. Joey's relocation to L.A. has given his acting career a lot more "meat" for the writers to work with, and LeBlanc is still adorably clueless. (He never realized, for instance, in 20 years of trying out for stage productions of Romeo and Juliet, why his plaintive delivery of "Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?" never got him the part of... Romeo.) The boxed set of the first season includes all 24 episodes, and a lot of good writing and topnotch performances. And most importantly, the Joey we love: "Why do you have to ruin stuff like that? Huh? 'The curve ball is impossible.' 'Don't eat that, it's solid mold.' 'That's not a dog, it's a possum. Stop letting it lick your face.' Why?!!" --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

The still-single Friend strikes out on his own as Emmy nominee Matt LeBlanc reprises his "Friends" role as charming Joey Tribbiani in this spin-off that continues the beloved "Friends" tradition. Joey leaves New York for Hollywood in order to take his acting career to the next level. He also says goodbye to a time when his friends were his family and welcomes the chance to turn his family into his friends. After reuniting with his high-strung sister Gina (Drea de Matteo, "The Sopranos"), Joey moves in with Michael (Paulo Costanzo, "Road Trip"), his 20-year-old genius nephew, who unbelievably is literally a rocket scientist. However, what Joey lacks in book smarts he makes up for with people smarts - making him the best new friend his nephew could ask for.

Despite the average ratings produced by the sitcom, "Joey" is a a surprisingly funny show. Matt LeBlanc is great in his reprisal role of Hollywood wanna-be Joey Tribbiani, and if you take the show on its own merits you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Don't make the mistake of comparing this show to the original "Friends" because it just doesn't stack up, and that kind of comparison is just unfair. The supporting cast doesn't measure up, and this show is about Joey, not an ensemble of six. However, if you're looking for a few cheap laughs or if Joey has always been your favorite "Friend" than be sure to pick up a copy of this show as soon as it hits the shelves. I know I will.

Oh and by the way, "How you doin?"

5.0 out of 5 stars WELL WORTH IT! March 12, 2006
Format:DVD
It is next to impossible not to compare Joey to Friends, and as far as I'm concerned there is nothing wrong with that.
To start with, the first episode of Joey produces unsettling feelings; if you are a fan of Friends you really want to like it, but you can't and you're left... well... feeling numb.
This is a one-man show with 2-3 supporting characters vs the 6 main characters of the original series.
That can become a bit of a problem when you are used to having six great actors depicting six great characters vs having only one who gets relegated to being just "good" because the others are dragging him down. The two (his sister and nephew) are not that likable. His neighbor and his agent seem out of place. As for the minor roles cast, they are very weak indeed.
Simply put, the show (in the beginning) is not so funny (the humor is indeed poor), and what is worse is that Joey, the character, is too weak; he is down on his luck, he is not confident, and he does not even seem to be dating (!), among other things (you get the picture...).
Too make matters worse, during this time of difficulty (both for the show being new and for the character being bummed out), there is no mention of anyone from Friends! How come he doesn't mention their names? How come he doesn't talk on the phone with them??? (Especially with Chandler for crying out loud!)

And then, around the eighth episode or so, there is the major turnaround! AMAZING TRANSFORMATION!!! Something kicks into gear and everything falls into place. The humor, the dialogues, the acting, the stories, the chemistry, it's all there! It's as if the addiction we had with Friends had never left! You want more and more and more!

I'm gonna miss Joey. It was a good try, but, ultimately, it wasn't given enough time on air to come out from under the shadow of Friends and become its own entity. Shame on the NBC network. Shows like Joey need time to ferment and to grow on the viewers. I thought that by halfway thru Season One and for most of Season Two the cast and the storylines were on point. Joey was never gonna be another phenom hit like Friends, but it was on its way to becoming a solid comedy sitcom. And the uncatchy theme song, by the way, did not help.

Joey: The Complete First Season tells of Joey Tribbiani's adventures in L.A. as he tries to get serious with his acting career. As he attempts to transition from a New York lifestyle to a more laidback City of Angels existence, he meets up with his transplanted family and new support group: sister Gina, nephew Michael, and also cute neighbor/lawyer/apartment complex super Alex.

You could tell the cast was new to each other, as the first episodes were unveiled; the actors weren't seemingly on the same page, the chemistry not there initially. The first episodes were awkward and stilted, with mostly LeBlanc holding down the fort. The show didn't begin to truly take on personality until the episode "Joey and the Big Audition," which set the stage for Joey signing on for the nighttime TV drama Deep Powder. The show took off from there. Other neat episodes were "Joey and the Taste Test" (Alex and Gina in The Lasagna War! and Lauren's "When you knock, I have to knock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Victim? November 2, 2006
By P. Hunt
Format:DVD
Yes, "Joey" was a victim; a victim of impossible expectations and the annoying lack of patience commonly shown by the networks these days. I never expected it to be the juggernaut "Friends" was & I figured it would take a little while for the writers & cast to find their voices and the tone of the show. I think they were just hitting their stride when the network pulled the plug. A cast w/ great comic timing, their own set of foibles and a brand new setting in which Joey could "find" himself. Switching coasts would've been a comic gold mine for future episodes - Joey was always limited in NYC and this opened up a whole new world for his cluelessness. I especially enjoyed his interactions w/ his agent & his nephew;laugh-out-loud funny stuff! Also, Adam Goldberg's appearance as Gina's ex (and possibly Michael's dad) was hilarious! I was really starting to enjoy the Tribiani (pre-"Friends") history which came out since the siblings were together. This spinoff situation worked with "Frasier" and I'm VERY disappointed it wasn't given more time to develop. "Cheers" and "Seinfeld" weren't hits right out of the box either but nowadays, if the irrelevent Nielsen numbers aren't there immediately, the axe falls. What a shame for the great cast and the writers who could've made this a solidly funny sitcom had they been given more time. Believe it or not, NBC, I looked forward to "Joey" and will mourn its premature demise - I hope someday you'll realize what you threw away.
