TV Meme: Day 11 - A Show That Disappointed Me

This was difficult, seriously. I had a very hard time coming up with a show that disappointed me. For the most part I do a pretty good job at scouting new shows before I watch them - or accidentally coming across a show and beginning to like it. So, I don't really have too many shows that have truly disappointed me.

That being said, I guess I am going to have to select Joey. This show was essentially a spin-off of Friends a show that I really enjoy - but out of the characters on the show I think Joey (Matt Le Blanc) might be the most difficult to follow along by himself - but they tried it anyway.

I can't even really pinpoint what exactly didn't work about the show. Perhaps it was that we spent 10 whole years getting to know this character and his five friends. To totally remove them from the scenario just didn't seem to work.

I don't have too much to say really - I think if they were to spin-off Friends they should have followed Chandler (Matthew Perry) and Monica (Courtney Cox) into suburbia - especially if Janis, Chandler's ex-girlfriend, seriously moved next door. That would have been a great show. And of course, have the other cast members visit them on occasion since they just lived in the city. That would have worked I feel.

  1. So disappointing that I forgot that it even existed. Chandler and Monica would have been SO much better.
