  • A great episode

    Will lands on a soap opera and must eventually, quit!! This was a truly great episode with many laughs, especially Will intentionally messing everything up at the end! A must see episode with fantastic acting, hilarious lines and story and some interesting moments
  • Will on the soaps

    After an average episode this one was better and had more laughs. Hilary and Lisa become friends and Lisa starts some of Hilary's shopping habits. Will gets a job on a soap but it turns out to be something different when he finds out his character is actually gay. His reaction when that guy walks in is pretty funny. It makes perfect sense when Carlton is his agent. It's kind of similar when he was Ashley's agent. Meanwhile there is actually a second story to this episode when Phillp finds out his wife is doing a project with a professor. With Will being in the soap opera and how the situation with Viv, Phillp begins to think that she is cheating. This is of course is not true. I only wish there was a scene with Viv and the guy with either Phillp or Geoffrey over hearing their talks. I liked how the soap opera was filmed on a actual set. (It was probably the fresh prince one) I also enjoyed how the leading actress punched Will out. Other notables include the very start and end of this episode were funny. I also liked the scene with the security guard and Will.

    A good episode that was better then the previous one.
  • Will is an a soap!

    This episode is funny. With Will accidently firing an actor and getting cast himself on the role in a soap. Its quite funny when he Will relizes that his onscreen "love" is actually a guy. Also Carlton becomes his manager and then when Will comes to him to get him fired, Carlton helps by telling him he has to act out of character and just ruin the episode so he still gets paid and gets to leave.

    And in a hilarious turn of events, Will pulls lines out of his head and just ruins everything and even takes off the leading lady's wig!! that aprt was very funny. Will finally gets fired and paid but gets punched by the leading lady. But in the funniest part of all Carlton forgot to give Will hiss cript before he tried to himself fired in which Will discovers he was gonna get with Halle Berry in the nest episode he gives Carlton a head start! Very funny although there have been better, Its still a good one.
