Critic Reviews for Friends Season 8

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Season eight is inconsistent, but its highs are oh so high.

Jun 27, 2018 | Full Review…

One of the reasons Season 8 works so well is because, possibly more than any other season, this one relies on the ensemble to react as a whole to certain events as opposed to splitting everyone off into little subplots.

Friends fans always loved Joey, but this season finally made him a real human being with feelings.

Jun 26, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The familiarity factor can't be discounted, but give Friends more credit: It's reliably amusing.

[This finale was] difficult to believe as a plot movement given Rachel refused Joey's marriage proposal a season earlier, but this episode is saved by...Chandler and Monica trying to conceive but being sprung by her father...

Friends has been criticized...for its non-realistic depiction of New York....[but] we are learning that not every show must -- or perhaps should -- correspond to social reality.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Heading into its ninth and most likely final season this fall, ''Friends'' has taken every cliché from the ''very special episode'' handbook and through some alchemy of good writing and performing turned hackneyed ideas into funny, energetic, fresh shows.
