Anyone seen it yet? I thought it was pretty funny, maybe not as funny as Friends but still funny anyway.
Others opinion?

I saw the first episodes, it is not that bad, but frankly it is not that good either... I will not go out of my way to see the rest.

Cheers,

They started showing it in Norway in December I think. I watched the first two or three episodes, but then I realised that the show just isn't close to what Friends was. New cast, new place, new directors and producers... The only thing that links this show to Friends is Joey and his past. On a scale of 1 to 10 (10=highest), I'd give it a 4.

I stopped watching it a long time ago.

Not completely true. They also have the same costume director: my next-door neighbor.
Funny, though, the only entire episode I've seen was when we went to watch a taping.  Innocent

Rhaa, es ist nich richtig !!!

As for my level of humour, I was (still am) a big fan of Friends.
It really does not compare.

i have seen 2 episodes. the first one was a little tame, but it was warming up in 2. obviously they will need a few episodes to really get going but i thought it had potential. it got 4m viewers in UK for premiere, which was apparently pretty good, according to the papers.

It's on channel 5. I wasn't that impressed with it, but still funny on the whole.

Friends blew hard after the first few series - they all got more neurotic with time and by the end of it Joey was the only one that was vaguely bareable, and still sometimes genuinely funny. The other characters were puerile and about as funny as Osama Bin Laden doing stand up at a Republican convention. I have only seen bits of 'Joey' so far, and there are some good lines in it (better than friends), but it is will probably end up as one of the daytime sitcoms that was never popular enough for primetime, and be cancelled after a maximum of 2-3 seasons.
'Jump the Shark' and all that.

I made a point of not watching it.

Friends was everything I hate about bland, celebrity-driven television. Forget the content as long as the cast list is correct and the script won't offend anyone.

I would even hesitate to call it comedy as it is about as funny as having your cat run over. On a weekend. After you just fed it. And bought it a new collar. Which you haven't put on yet.

Compare it to something like Scrubs which is genuinely funny and you can see why.

Joey - Now Showing In The UK

All I can say to this is: This is our revenge for burning down the White House in 1812... It has taken almost 200 years but finally we can make those dirty redcoats suffer.



"you're Elbonian though, you're on the same level of humour as the Germans"

So is Elbonian porn like German porn as well?

I watched both episodes for the first time on Five last night. Wasn't really overly impressed with it but Joey's sister is pretty hot.

It'll probably improve or I'll just get used to it more. For the moment it's not as good without the rest of the 'friends' but hey ho, nobody likes change but we grow accustom to it.

I'll carry on watching it I guess but oh yea. That point system they used for getting dates in the second episode. Haha, im a 9 as well.  Big thumbs up

While Joey is probably a decent show, the whole Joey is an oversexed, moronic boob bit is frankly a bit old. You would think after all those years of living in New York with his closest friends he would have grown a bit. But no.

Friends did have something, especially early on, before all the big guest stars and before everybody was raking in $1mil+ an episode and had fake bake tans and drug problems.

It is the Simpson's model. Keep everyone in the same place in life to avoid jumping the shark.

True --- but you can argue that both shows have long since jumped the shark.
