Joey Season 2
Joey gets kicked out of his TV show but quickly manages to bounce back and secure a role in a huge action movie where he’ll be the hero. This makes that he’s earning more money than ever and knowing Joey that means lots of toys to be bought! Meanwhile, Gina gets a job as the secretary of Joey’s manager Bobbie and next to that she hooks up again with Jimmy who used to be Joey’s best friend and appears to also be Michael’s father. Finally there’s Alex who’s in love with Joey but doesn’t dare to confront him with this fact and goes completely berserk as a result
Sound and Vision:
Nothing special to be said here, things are reasonable for a sitcom so don’t expect too much but it’s better than Friends. Same goes for the sound which has clear dialogues but nothing more
Joey ended after two seasons and when watching the first box set it was kinda strange to know there would be only one season next as it wasn’t all that bad. Season two, however, explains a lot. There’s too many sidekicks and too little Joey present. It’s like the writers couldn’t come up with funny situations for Joey to get into so decided to add several new characters that aren’t always that funny. Even worse: fans of Friends will regularly see inconsistencies in Joey and Adam Goldberg joining the cast as Jimmy, supposedly Joey’s best friend back in the days before Friends, is clearly a mistake as in Friends he used to play Chandler’s psychotic roommate Eddie.
All this combined with the increasingly irritating love affair between Joey and Alex make it clear that there’s little left to work with and it’s sad to see Joey go down the drain like this. There are still a couple of good jokes present in season 2 but the overall quality is less than expected and episodes hardly ever get above average
