Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Mediocre

    Some good moments in this episode for sure but overall, not that great and definitely not re-watchable like a lot of the show's episodes. It had some funny lines but definitely, I wasn't as interested in this episode and actually, kept wondering how much time I was left. That definitely is bad news.

    It wasn't terribly boring but the jokes were truly limited and not that great. Some good moments, but overall, is worth a skipmoreless
  • Will the slumlord

    While this episode was funny and had it's moments it had some drawbacks. Aside from the fact that there was second story, I didn't like how some parts of this episode were handled. I think this episode would've been better if it either followed or came before the episode where Will takes photos of Lisa. Second there was no Lisa. I think Lisa could've balanced what Will was going through. Also this property that Will wanted Phillp to invest in. If it was in such demand why was it such bad shape? I didn't like that Jazz was leading the lawsuit or that even after Will and Carlton fixed it up he threw himself down the stairs. And another thing was that if it was a big investment for Phillp how come he didn't make sure this property had actual help. Then again maybe he did it because he wanted Will to learn from this.

    There were some good moments in this episode. Will and Carlton montage of building the place was funny. It was a sweet comment what Phillp said of Will after he got the place fixed up. I liked that after it happened with some funny comment.

    Was this a bad episode? No. Can you skip this? You wouldn't miss much.moreless
