  • Funny episode but subject to unfortunate censorship.

    Very funny episode, however the producers may have made a big mistake in not anticipating that it might be censored. Here in the UK this episode always gets cut from the regular run due to it being rated 15 (whereas every other episode is 12 or PG), which would be no more than a minor annoyance if not for the fact that the episode contains crucial plot points to later episodes, namely Phoebe's revelation of having triplets, plus Ross and Emily revealing their feelings for each other. Because of this, it doesn't make sense when, in the next episode, Frank and Alice already know they're having triplets if you're unaware of this ep's existence.

    Chandler and Joey find an unscrambled porn channel on their TV and refuse to turn it off for fear of losing it. Meanwhile, Phoebe receives some surprising news and Monica helps Ross come to a decision regarding Emily. I'm going to push aside the Ross and Emily parts of the episode, and say that this could possibly be one of my Favorite episodes of Season 4. I thought that it was great that we got to see another appearance of the Garbage Guy, I can't remember his name, and the relationship between Chandler, Joey and the TV Being more intense then usually!
  • Chandler & Joey get free porn.

    This plot revolves around the whole episode which I love & when they turn it off, they still have it. I like the girls irritation to the porn. An update on the pregnant arc. Phoebe is having triplets! Amazing way to liven up the plot & make Phoebe get a job with the catering van. The Relaxi-Taxi!Anyways Meanwhile The Emily arc continues even though she is on her way to the airport. Ross admits he loves her. And that mean Emily isn't going anywhere. I love how they sort of trade places. Just another great installment to a perfect well thought out arc.

    The One with the Free Porn is a great Friends episode. It is mostly made to describe the way of how Joey is. It also has the conclusion of what happens when Ross tells Emily that he loves her. It was hilarious when he says "Emily I love you" and then Emily says "Thank you" lol. Poor Ross felt really bad. But the one part I do not like about this episode is that it just doesn't sit right. Throughout a couple episodes in that season Rachel and Monica and Joey and Chandler switch apartments. I did not like this because the different apartments with different people I did not like.

    Who hasn't wished for it? At least among guys.
    Well, in the Free Porn episode it happens to Chandler and Joey, what makes it a better to tell story than it would be if it happened to someone else.
    Also you've got Ross story with Emily and the appearence of Frank Jr. who's always a plus.
