Joey Tribbiani was definitely my favorite among the men of friends. He’s a lovable goofball and for good reason.
I will say that it’s definitely good that they kept his Italian-American heritage as one the key parts of his character.
Probably the only thing stronger than his friendship with Chandler Bing was his affection for the ladies. During the first half of the show, he was definitely giving Hugh Hefner a run for his money.
But boy was Joey Tribbiani stupid.
And everybody got to see that on national television when he became a celebrity guest on a game show.
Joey Tribbiani is definitely the opposite of me when it comes to stomachs and taste buds. The man is capable of eating anything and everything, even stuff people would want to barf into the trash can.
The idea of him and Rachel being a couple did seem a bit odd, but I was actually more sympathetic to him during a recent rewatch. My only question about it, was if Joey could stay truly loyal to Rachel or would his old habits be revived?
Their relationship doesn’t last forever as all the other factors were too much for both of them. I kind of wonder if it was just because they had already known that they were going to do a Joey spinoff and it would have been difficult to do that with him tied down to Rachel.
