Episode Summary

Hilary gets a job reporting weather on television, but doesn't know a thing about being a weathergirl. How does she do on TV.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • C'mon, the title of the episode is enough to make you laugh

    As we know, in this episode, Hilary needs to get a job and eventually is hired by a man to be the weather-girl though she has no clue about the weather! As much as I liked this episode, there were two little nitpicks I had about this episode. Firstly, they didn't show enough of Hilary being the weather-girl and messing up and secondly, to me, the episode was more about Will trying to get himself to be aired on TV to make a point.

    There were a few great scenes, most notably Hilary shopping in the refrigerator and secondly, when Phil suddenly refuses to stand up against Howard after realising that Howard gave her the job was just priceless.

    Asides the little nitpicks a superb episodemoreless
  • Hilary gets a job as a weather girl

    This was an important episode. First Hilary gets a job that she holds for a long time. Second, we are introduced to Trevor, who is the male version of Hilary. Trevor and Hilary make a good couple. The secretary for Trevor was cast great. Her lack of caring was funny. I also liked how Will takes up a cause and then Phillp agrees to help him to only stop when he realizes that Hilary has a job and a man. Also funny was how Will got Howard to sign the petition. An overall funny episode.moreless

    Yeah so this is pretty much an great episode.Heh Hiliary finally got an job.But eventually gets her own talk show later on in the series.This is also how she met her love of her life Trevor.moreless
  • Hilary Gets A Job

    This episode is the start of many things: Hilary "grocery shopping" for the first time, getting a job as a weathergirl and meeting Trevor who will become more important later in the series.

    Will trying to get on the news was very amusing, especially the receptionist and Will's speech about how Howard was going to sign the petition.

    Will manipulating Phil into getting the law involved was a hilarious scene, Philip quickly flipping sides when he realised how Hilary got the job.

    Overall, this is one very entertaining episode and develops Hilary quite well, with her seeing Trevor and her first informal weather report.moreless
