Haven't seen the show yet, but if the spoiler is right, that is the stupidest plot twist ever.

I think you posted next week's episode.
Here's the one I watched tonight.
The One With the Fertility Test:

Spoiler:
Rachel runs into a familiar face during her free massage from one of Phoebe's corporate-chain foes, while the Bings try to run away from a frightening face (Janice) at their doctor's office. Meanwhile, Ross tutors Joey on the ways to win over a brainiac like Charlie (Aisha Tyler), who may have her mind set on another man.

Well crap!!

I thought I paid close attention to the date I was copying when I went to NBCs site.

I'll just be editing the above so no one accidentally reads the spoiler for next week.

The baby would only drag the whole show down......

Wait a minute, what am I saying? This show has hit rock bottom for months now, there is nowhere to go but up.

Though Rachel on the massage table was YOAAAA ZAAAAAA......... Makes me want to be a masseur.

Meh.

You'd could see the Phoebe part coming and as soon as Chandler said no one here knows us I figuredJanice was going to show up.

The Joey stuff was somewhat funny.

Eek, a Braves fan!

What was the very final scene of the show? It didn't record after the tender moment of Monica & Chandler.

Honk!

Is it just me or has Friends become the most predictable sitcom on television? There was a couple of OK laughs (Joey and his two belts), but man, you could see all that stuff coming from miles away.

Friends seems like everyones favorite show to bash. Well, it is still one of the top rates shows so obviously, many people still love it.

Ugh. That was a bad episode. I keep thinking that the new Charlie character would be so much better if they made her more of a smart ass like how Aisha Taylor really is. I remember seeing her on Talk Soup sometimes and she was really funny. In this show, she's just a body and IMO this Charlie could have been played by basically anybody.

I don't think people really 'love' it anymore. It's just that we've been watching it for so long, we just don't want to stop now. Even if it's a bad show, we're addicted now.

I hate it when they try to do drama. Make me laugh, clowns! You're here to amuse me!

Decent episode.

Still, even the average episodes of Friends are better than 99% of all other comedies out there.

Does anyone else feel that Jennifer Aniston was just "phoning it in" on this episode? She didn't even seem to care what she was saying or how she was saying it. As usual, the Joey/Ross stuff was the best. I think they would be the best candidates for a spin-off show.

Didn't like the ep either. Looks like we are going to get weeks of sappy tender moments between Monica and Chandler now trying to have a baby (and not the old fashion way, if you read the spoiler for next week that was inadvertently posted)...

wow, im so glad that i get to enjoy friends alot still (unlike most people here) and find it funnier than almost every other show out there. apparently too many people are looking for a deep story line or intelligent plot twists or gag jokes or too much - its friends! just a fun, sit down and enjoy, silly, cute comedy! appreciate it for what it is. it wont be around in 2 years. and its 10000 times funnier than the first 5 seasons. it gets better.

EXACTLY!

After watching the first 3 seasons on DVD and catching new ones on Thurs. there is a night/day difference in the comedy and amount of jokes. In the old ones it is a laugh from beginning to end. Nowadays it is plotlines that are funny. Ross' plot may be funny this week but Monica/Chandler are a snooze.(etc.) It isn't very creative anymore. But still funnier than most of the dreck on tv.
