Joey is one of the shows that was cancelled because of the hype. Friends was indeed a great show. One of the reasons for this was, that the show became better doing the years, until it found its right formular. But Joey didn't get the time to findt its formular. I think that the first season og Joey was fun and intertaining, but nothing more. The show had a problem with a lot of new characters, and suddenly we had to Joeys, the other one being Joeys sister. But the characters evolved, and became really great characters. I love the chemistry between Joey and Michael. The shows plot also became funnier, and the Joey character became more mature, which is great. Personally I think that the last 10 episodes of Joey is the best ones. The show really find a good formular, that could have evolved to something fantastic.
I really miss it.
