Tonight, NBC kicks off the series premiere of "Joey" in the old "Friends" spot (8 p.m. EDT on Thursdays). The pilot showed promise, though will wonder how the new casting of the hottie neighbor will spice up the chemistry for Joey in LA.

I was surprised how much I liked the pilot. I think if you liked Friends you'll enjoy the show, if you didn't you probably won't.

The show airs for the first time tonight, although the pilot was leaked on the internet awhile ago and so a number of people have seen it already.

Can't wait for this.

I imagine the character will be tweaked a little over the first few months to make him fit his new environment better. Sort of like how it's pretty tough to imagine Frasier-on-Frasier ever hanging out at Cheers.

I actually forgot to catch this and missed the first 13 minutes! :b

Anyway, what I saw was pretty good.

I thought it was good. I liked the interaction with his sister, those 2 together provided the most laughs for me.

I think it will work.

And that's the exact reason why I could never get into "Frasier"

The pilot was okay, I slightly chuckled at a few gags, but it isn't what I call essential viewing. I thought it was funny how that neighbor girl came over like she was going home, then revealed that she had to pick up her husband at the airport and then left. Why even bother going home? Who was that actress who played the neighbor? She looked very familiar.
STOP HIM! He's supposed to die!

Joey was my least favorite friend. But the pilot was very good.

I'll tell you, the reshoots were far better than the original shots. The new actress is far better than Ashley Scott in the role, and just seems more comfortable in the few shots she was in than Miss Scott did.

And I didn't like the reshoot for the TV interview. I liked the original interview with the actor on "Nurses." Done by the one and only Pat O'Brien...

And please, not so stupid. I mean, Joey is dumb, but "My agent's a shark. And that means she's a really good agent, not an actual shark." I mean, c'mon. Is Joey so mentally incompetent that he believed his new agent was a frikin shark?

Granted, he did think he was going to appear in a commercial with a talking dog once, but still...

Posted Image I thought it was pretty good.

But what was up with Jennifer Coolidge? I generally like her, but she was really rather annoying in this character, and she seemed to be really over-selling it. Not to mention it looked like she was doing it all off cue cards and they gave her the weird magnifying glasses to hide her eye movements.

And the neighbor character seems to be a waste. I didn't like the actress or the character.

I do like Andrea Anders more than Ashley Scott in the role as the neighbor.

Joey's nephew went to my high school, and graduated 2 years after I came there. I'd say he's doing pretty well for himself - probably the most famous person to come from that school thus far.

The chemistry with Drea de Matteo is good. She's also got a good, unconventional (for prime time sitcom TV) babe factor.

The intelligence of Joey in the last season of Friends was pretty inconsistent. Remember the game show episode?

But it's off to a good start I'll keep watching.
