"FRIENDS’ SUCCESS IS BUILT UPON TIGHT PLOTTING AND RELATABLE CHARACTERS. VERY OCCASIONALLY, HOWEVER, THE SHOW TAKES A SWERVE FOR THE ILLOGICAL, ICKY AND INSANE…"
How much do I love that Joey and Rachel are included in this? Kudos, Comedy Central!
Illogical, icky and insane. Yup, that about sums them up.
I agree with every one of these.
Comedy Central UK are looking for the nation’s favourite episode of Friends, to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary. Vote for your favourite now and see if makes the top 20!
I always get second hand embarrassment for Rachel in TO in Barbados, when she laughs at “homo” during Ross’ speech. It makes me cringe. Ugh, I hate what they reduced her to, during that stupid Joey/Rachel arc.
“The One Where Jetlag Wins” or really, the table draft of 10×15: “The One Where Estelle Dies.”
In the commentary for “The One Where Estelle Dies”, the executive producers recalled throwing out a Ross/Rachel story (where they went to Paris to consider Rachel’s move) and putting in a new one after the table read. This one being about Ross’s attempts to keep Rachel from leaving. The table draft features the original story.
Well, um, actually, I took her to the planetarium. That’s where we had our first date. Um, she walked in and I had the room filled with lilies, her favorite flower. Then, Fred Astaire singing ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ came on the sound system, and the lights came down. And I got down on one knee and written across the dome in the stars were the words “Will you marry me?”
Yes, this is 2014 calling, we still have no explanation as to why Rachel + Joey happened.
