I don't know if they knew it first, but I think they definitely played on it as the show went on

^ I'm sure TPTB got that viewers had gotten that vibe with Eric and Jack. That thought is making me look at the Eric/Jack/Rachel triangle in a new light. =p

Yeah, there are different ways to interpret that

Especially as it turned out that neither of them were really that into Rachel in the end...

^ That part drives me mad. TPTB spent so much time going back and forth with the triangle...only for it to fizzle out in the end? They could have spent that time really establishing the bond that the three characters had.

Yeah, it makes me wonder what the point of the whole thing was... I guess the writers just hadn't planned it out that far

^ It did seem that way to me too. I understood and sometimes liked the competition the guys had going, but I didn't like how TPTB handled the trio's dynamic after a choice seemed to have been made between the two guys.

Yeah, it wasn't a good payoff to the whole thing at all... I think a lot of people watching just wished that there had never been any triangle

^ I think so too. I like it when Rachel teased choosing/preferring one of the guys over the other, but I don't think I really wanted her to make a choice. I would have been perfectly fine if TPTB had had the triangle go on for half a season and then dropped it. I much preferred the friendship that the three characters had.

I think that I would have been happier with that too. It didn't seem to me as if Rachel was really interested in either of them tbh, & I don't think that either of them liked her that much, I think they both would have gotten over it in a couple months

^ That's how it looked to me too. The longer the triangle went on for, the less convinced I was that it had any depth.

Yeah, it felt more like bored teens who felt like they should be dating, instead of there being any actual romantic feelings

^ That's a good way of looking at it. I think the triangle was fun for a few laughs, but when you really think about it, it was really a bit of a waste of time. I would have much preferred the three of them bonding as roommates and college students. Think about all of the things that they could have helped each other through.

Yeah, they could have had a lot of fun storylines without it being a love triangle

^ Exactly. All it would have taken was one of them telling the other two that it would be best for all of them if they kept their bond a friendship. Time would have then showed them that that person was right, that a lifelong friendship between them was more important than a romance between two of them that would have likely ended in heartbreak for all of them.

Yeah, if only one of them had gone to Feeny for advice on the whole situation, because that's probably what he would have told them
