I must admit i was slighly disappointed with the first season. the pilot episode did not live up to its expectations. Coming off the back of Friends was a big ask.
but this episode was not only funny but conclusive. it wrapped up the things that were opened up at the end of last season.
Joey's relationship with Alex, and Joeys job position. so we felt a sense of closure.
this episode was well written. i would have to say it was the funniest episode to date.
i found myself laughing throughout most of the episode, compared to the once or twice i would usually for an episode of Joey.
a very good start to the season.
Joey has stepped above the bar, and seems much more successful that last season
