Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • I really like this episode!

    A very funny surprisingly entertaining episode with a good plot. The episode features Will and Hilary's new boyfriend as a car accident takes the Banks' family and Eric. What I really like about this episode is the character of Phillip. We see him and his skills as a lawyer. We see him as a smart man unlike the way we are sometimes portrayed of him!

    This has also gotta be one of the better one time characters. He was quite a likable character who had no hatred that the Banks' won the case. Good episode, good premise, great acting as usual and a lot of surprisingly funny moments with Jazz make for a heck of a good episode!moreless
  • Will gets sued

    This was a decent episode with some good moments. By Fresh Prince standards this was an average episode but still good. You get to see Phillp's skills as a lawyer. It's interesting to see is displayed. I liked how Phillp deafened Will even though the accident was his fault. The choice of Hilary's boyfriend was a good choice. It was probably her best boyfriend she had. I liked the Cosby show reference he made. One funny part is when Will said his insurance company is Yo Fault. I also enjoyed Will trying to cheer up the judge.moreless

    The court case is one of the funniest scenes in the whole series, the judge being hilarious, and Jazz’s lines in this episode are great such as “I’ve seen him chew but I’ve never seen him spit nothing out” and “I resent that” when mentioned that something smells like cheap cologne and fried chicken.

    Will is also terrific in this episode such as his insurance company “Yo’ fault” and his court testimony. Hillary was also very good in the episode as was Carlton thinking he knew a suck-up like the lawyer, unaware that it was him he was thinking of, and Geoffrey’s line about the book.

    Overall, this episode is very funny with a great plot, hilarious gags and the very entertaining judge.moreless
