After failing to kick start his acting career in New York living with his Friends, Joey Tribbiani moves to LA to hit the big time...
At the end of season one, Joey was faced with a tough decision - whether or not to settled down and give up his womanising ways.
After leaving an "I Love You" hanging in the air from his girlfriend, Sara, he finds himself faced with the prospect of her moving in. But is that what he really wants?
Season two opens with Joey finally getting his big break. But in true Joey fashion, there's nothing usual about it.
