This episode is ten years old now... can you believe it? Since this is the episode that got me into Friends it will always have a special place in my heart.
And what's not to like? Ross's princess Leia fantasy, Monica's withdrawl symptoms and let's not forget Joey and Janice's day of fun :D
If you're trying to get someone into Friends I would definately recommend this episode. It's arrived at the point of the show where all the characters have really developed and it has no loose stories hanging in the air (Like most season openers do have). Small note though: this episode would have gotten a ten from me if it wasn't for this guy in the audience. If you get the chance to watch this episode again listen carefully each time you hear the audience laugh. There is one guy in there that does this "ooooowwwh" noise constantly. Once you hear it, it's all you can hear. I can't believe that made it on the DVD :S
Other than that: two thumbs waaaaay up!
