Joey and Michael aren't pleased to find Gina made a zillion copies of their apartment key, and is using them all. Michael figures out the handwriting on the nasty notes of the intolerant super -such as no underwear in the hot-tub, Joey shows why, showing all- is identical to friendly neighbor Alex's. Michael is elated when Joey accepts proudly to coach him dating in a bar, but Gina first phones their profiles to have her poor under-age kid thrown out, then gets the boys to take her along; her advice mixed with Joey's confuses even a genius too much so Michael ultimately tries it solo, while both dummies commiserate about the improbable differences between them and their brainiac blood-relative...

"Maybe someone here wants a woman from the 80's"
30 November 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

After a solid pilot episode it was interesting to see how the Joey spin-off would continue.

This is a good episode of the show, with a smart script by creators/exec-producers, Shana Goldberg Meehan and Scott Silveri, that sees Joey trying to teach Michael how to pick up women.

I thought the character of Gina was probably the funniest here, with Drea De Matteo having some great lines.

The 'Alex is the super' subplot was OK, and at this stage it looked like Alex could fill the 'friend' void for Joey, and that probably would've worked better long term than her being a love interest.

These early episodes of the spin-off show the direction the creators intended to go in, and it had potential. It's a shame that they'd later change direction and the potential be lost.
