Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • An awesome episode

    I absolutely loved this episode in many ways. I just loved the twist they had in this episode, the story the way the characters were presented, especially Geoffrey. I love the use of "That woman must be stopped" The acting was great, the delivery of dialogue was superb and the story itself was awesome making for a great episode
  • A movie star comes to visit the banks

    After a slow start to this episode it got better as it got going. I think I would have liked this episode more if I knew the actress who played the movie star. This is not a knock against Zaza Ggabor. I know she is a famous actress but i wish i knew more about her. I liked how Carlton and Will thought she stole the silverware and the the attempt to put it back. Getting Hilary to come with them was perfect. It was very funny when Will and Carlton were under the table. I liked that the ending while not a finished one was a great way to end it.moreless

  • Hi-Ho Silver

    The opening scene with Will’s “black magic” tricks is very funny and is a great example of Will’s mischievous side though that’s nothing compared to what later comes in the episode where he convinces Carlton that they should steal the silverware that they assume Sonya took from their manor.

    Carlton is very funny in this episode, especially the final scene with his overreaction to the cop and his needless break-in preparations.

    Geoffrey’s uniform is hilarious as is his attempts to hide the uniform so he wouldn’t have to embarrass himself further.

    Overall, this episode is extremely funny and has Will and Carlton at their best aswell as an entertaining table scene between Philip and Sonya.moreless
