Throwback Thursday-Joey (2004-2006)

When a popular television program ends, it is tempting for both fans and Hollywood producers to consider the idea of a spinoff.

In 2004, Friends went off the air after ten years on television. In the fall of that year, a spinoff debuted. Matt LeBlanc had his own show, Joey (2004-2006). In the show, Joey Tribbiani (LeBlanc) moves to Los Angeles to pursue acting full time. He moves into an apartment purchased by his sister, Gina (Drea de Matteo) and starts to build a relationship with his nephew, Michael (Paul Costanzo).

If I am, to be honest, I give this show an A for effort. The creative team did everything they could to replicate the level of television success that Friends had. But there was something missing from this show that I cannot put my finger on.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
