It's certainly not nearly as iconic and fondly remembered as "Friends," but the spin-off "Joey" isn't totally worth skipping. For instance, if you're a fan of "The Big Bang Theory," you'll want to check it out to see a familiar face from that show in a role that's surprisingly not too different.
Long before he became the aerospace engineer, astronaut, and creep Howard Wolowitz on all 12 seasons of "The Big Bang Theory," actor Simon Helberg made a handful of appearances throughout the two seasons of "Joey." He played Seth: an engineer and associate of Joey's nephew, Michael Tribbiani, who factored into four episodes.
He debuted in Season 1's "Joey and the Party," followed by "Joey and the Assistant" and the Season 2 installments "Joey and the Big Move" and "Joey and the Wedding." The show may not have become the success NBC hoped it would be, but if nothing else, it gave Simon Helberg a platform to show what he could do in front of the camera.
