  • I Know Why the Caged Bird Screams

    Both the war between schools and the alarm system are hilarious plots, especially when the Banks get trapped and Carlton gets stolen. Of course the end was brilliant, with Amanda coming back to gloat and Will asking for the $500 Carlton owed him.

    The funniest aspect of the episode is the fact that the football team couldn’t survive without their peacock mascot and lost their confidence just because Carlton was mascot-napped.

    Will dressed as a peacock is even more amusing than Carlton because it is so out of character and overall, this episode is one worth watching, especially for the moments with Jazz and the dogs.
