Let's Just Acknowledge How Weird 'The One With Russ' Was
It's been decided. 'The One With Russ' is hands-down the strangest Friends episode.
Do you ever have one of those moments in the shower where you remember something REALLY strange from your youth?
"Why didn't Curious George have a tail? That's biologically impossible!"
Well, we totes just experienced one of those. A big one.
WHY DID THE FRIENDS GANG JUST ACCEPT THAT RACHEL WAS DATING A GUY CALLED RUSS WHO ALSO HAPPENED TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE ROSS BECAUSE HE WAS ALSO PLAYED BY DAVID SCHWIMMER?!
Obvs this was all done for comic effect, but we can't comprehend how sticking some (minimal) prosthetics on Schwimmer's face and ruffling his hair a bit was enough to convince everyone (including the audience) that he was meant to be a totally different person.
There's literally a moment where Ross stares directly into the face of Russ and isn't even that shook?!
This isn't even where our confusion ends. Unfortunately.
When he walks into Central Perk and Julie just HAPPENS to be there and she also doesn't make any connection between ROSS and RUSS and they fall madly in love?! Why is that a thing that happens?
Just thought we'd share our concern. This episode was trippy AF.
Actually, 1996 was trippy AF. This was just an after-effect.
