PAL 'JOEY' A ''Friend'' to the end, the season 1 DVD makes us think LeBlanc (center) and De Matteo (left, with Paulo Costanzo) had a good thing going

Details Release Date: May 30, 2006; DVD Release Date: May 30, 2006; Movie Rated: Unrated; Genre: Comedy; With: Matt LeBlanc

Banished from Must See TV, Friends ' spin-off Joey languishes on hiatus, awaiting a brief (and final) run this summer. The season 1 set reminds us what we're missing: Matt LeBlanc's actor lug gains some edge in L.A., and Drea de Matteo makes a solid comic turn as his sexy, sharp-tongued sister. Add Jennifer Coolidge as his ruthless agent and you'll wonder why you didn't watch the show when it aired. But the lack of EXTRAS (even Friends ' 10th season had a gag reel) suggests producers want to forget this so-called mistake.
