  • A Rollercoaster of Laughs!

    This episode is easily a hilarious episode. There are so many funny moments in this episode such as when Phillip fakes a back pain and when Will leaves, he starts to rush upstairs only for Vivian to catch him. It also has some extremely funny moments between Danny and Will, especially when Will puts his head out from the back of the limo and screams for help! The moment where there is a doctor and he gets run over by a car was just priceless.

    Two little nitpicks I have are

    1) I wish that Will had really done something when the baby was coming out

    2) As funny as he is, Phillip's character has considerably changed from Season1 and Season 2

    That being said, a great episode with laugh after laugh!
  • Someone has a baby

    After the election of Phillp as judge, it was good to get back to a pregnancy. I am glad they did that. I thought the start was very good. I liked that it was dramatic then suddenly changed. Normally this wouldn't work, but in this case it did. Vanessa Williams was great in this episode. I like women who are strong, confident, and like sports. The scene where she was the baby was funny. I like how Phillp was reluctant to help Viv but later changed. The only bad thing was that James Avery may have overacted at the end. Also there was not much of a B Story. Overall, this was a solid episode.

    This episode is very funny, with so many brilliant moments in the limo, Will screaming and the doctor getting hit by a car, aswell as Will's interpretation of the water breaking.

    The subplot of the gunman wasn't as entertaining though and the twist ending wasn't that funny at all and lacked believability but it was quite fun at times.

    The lamaze classes were quite a good way to start the episode off, and shows Philip's opinion on the whole pregnncy a little more which was a good thing to see.

    Overall, this is quite a funny episode and definitely should not be missed.
