When I first saw this show on TV, I didn't really get into it. But watching the whole season strait and enjoying the developments of the story and so forth made me really appreciate and like the show greatly. I really like having the opportunity to rent whole seasons in this manner. I just wish they included a special features section or something.
It took a few episodes to adjust to Joey being the central character (as in Friends he was one of the six), but after that the show grew on me. I liked the new characters and setting of this new shoe. Above all, the show is very funny and truly a successful spin-off..
