  • A good followup to the last episode I Love You"

    This isn't the best episode of the season so far but it was certainly funny. I liked how we actually see more of Judge Robertson because I didnt like the way his character was concluded in the last episode. The whole story between Will and Jazz was funny and it was moving.

    This episode shows everything well. I liked how Phillip didn't get too mad at Will for what happened. I especially loved the moment

    Phillip (sees the kids) "Who are they?

    Judge: They're rented!

  • Phillp goes up against his mentor

    This was a nice follow up to the last episode. You get to see a more skevy side of Judge Robinson in this episode. While he is not the best moral character, you don't turn him off when you see him. I like how Will did put a dent in his uncle's plan, it wasn't his fault. Another good thing is that Phillp didn't blame Will too much for what happened. I also like how Jazz and Will have a fight and later make up. While this would be cheesy in most sitcoms, it worked in this one.moreless

  • Here Comes the Judge

    This episode shows the true friendship of Will and Jazz and shows just how much both take each other for granted, with hilarious results.

    Jazz not wanting to buy a broken CD player and getting two grand worth of parking tickets was great characteristics in the episode, the end being brilliant with him used to getting let out of the house in an interesting fashion that never gets old.

    Judge Robertson is once again a very funny character and shows that senility is only one of the humerous characteristics of his character.

    Overall, this has a great Will-Jazz conflict and is very entertaining.moreless
