Which was stupid, because I never watched "Friends," except that one time when Brad ("Hey, what am I smelling right now?") Pitt was on. I'm just watching because I miss Adriana. Within the first thirty seconds, I'm put off by the laugh track. I'm used to "Curb Your Enthusiasm," so the over-amused audience from nowhere is annoying me. Eight minutes into it, I can see Matt LeBlanc just isn't a very good actor. And ooh, the writing ("What are you a rocket scientist" "Yes."). It's astoundingly amateurish. Is this what people want? Intolerable.
