Fans Just Realised The Friends Finale Is Depressing And Unfair On Joey
When we think of the Friends finale, we ugly cry. No more bowls of coffee in Central Perk, no more Ross and Rachel making us want to pull out our own eyeballs so we don't have to see them fight anymore, no more Joey chasing the ladies.
But back up a sec. Joey *did* have to carry on chasing the ladies - because he was the only friend not bequeathed a happy ending by the writers. Sure, he went on to star in 'Joey' (let's not talk about it) but Friends Season 10 left him alone, sad, and with no discernible plan.
It's easy to forget that he fell for Kathy, before Chandler took her, then realised he was in love with Rachel - only for Ross to steal her away.
His two best friends getting with the two women he ever really felt something for - that's a pretty bleak picture. And one we hadn't really thought about until the new generation of millennials watching Friends commented on Twitter...
Jokes about Joey growing old above the garage at Mon and Chandler's are certainly less funny when you compare that image to how happy his friends were at the end of the show:
Guess Friends *was* a little darker than we remembered. WE LOVE YOU JOEY! Even if your spin-off was poop.
