Friends was doing very well in the first season until this episode.
Sure it was funny and with a good story line but the competition between Ross and Rachel and how serious it became was very wierd and Rachel's urge to win the game was very surprising.
It did show show some character development but still not that good.
The lines were funny at a certain level although not that good at others.
The plot was moving sort of slow.
I love friends but this episode was below expectations.
Although the interevention of the old poker pro was a very funny thing.
B- I am sad to give a friends episode this grade.
