Summary: Rachel bails last minute from her wedding and goes to her high school friend Monica for help. She is encouraged by Monica's friends to become independent. Monica herself has found a new relationship with a man named Paul. Her brother Ross is dealing with a divorce which happened because his wife was a lesbian.
The Good: This was very good and quite enjoyable. The show is quick to introduce its characters and lets us understand everything about them in just a few quick early scenes. The laughs are also intelligently placed through the use of smart and funny dialogue between the characters. It's definitely a unique idea to base a show off of 6 people just living their lives and talking about stuff without very much plot. It's interesting and at times can make for some really good moments.
The Bad: However there were some problems. This show is very reliant on dialogue so if some lines aren't very well put together, it shows. There were a couple poor lines that really weren't as funny as intended like "stay out of my freezer" and just the entire spoon analogy thing in general. I felt it didn't click very well. Another fault is that the show doesn't have very much excitement in the overall story. This can be improved once we get to know the characters better but the laughs just aren't as good as they perhaps should be.
Best Moment: I really liked the scenes in the café because the dialogue there was genuinely funny a lot of the time.
Character of the Episode: I would go with Rachel for this one.
Conclusion: A strong episode overall with a couple funny moments, but there does feel like something is missing. If some of the flaws can be ironed out as this show starts to get going, there is serious potential for a great comedy series.
