  • Of all clip shows I've seen, this is the worst unfortunately

    2.0
    I've seen clip shows from 'Suite Life of Zack and Cody' and The Simpsons as well as many other shows but I regret to say that this particular clip show really was out of place. It sucked how there is another part to the clip show which means twice the torture



    Up until now, the show has been progressing really well but suddenly here we are watching an episode with a rather bland plot and rather dull jokes. I really thought everything about this episode was just out of place and too over the top, in particular Vivian's singing. That was just slapping the character and the show right in the face. The Hilary plot was just stupid and Phil's plot did nothing I really cared about.



    Unfortunately, I regret to announce that this is one of the worst episodes I've seen :(moreless
  • Part one

    7.0
    I have decided to review the Halloween episode in two parts. While this was a decent episode, what I didn't like about it was that it was a flashback episode when not even 10 episodes in. They could've cut out the flashbacks and had it be a standard 30 min episode. I didn't think people needed to be reminded of Will's antics. One part I enjoyed was the continuing development of Hilary. The best part might have been at the ending when both Carlton and Will chasing after that one girl and both come to her at the same time. For those that didn't see it live or on DVD it did create some mystery.moreless

  • Weird

    3.5
    This episode was just really weird. The pacing of it was weird it seemed, there was no real good jokes, overall nothing could really hold my attention. I almost changed the channel. I don't know why I disliked this one so much, maybe I will watch it again sometime soon, but for now, I thin kit is one of the worst episodes I have seen. Several will disagree, but I can't just change my opinion. Out of the episodes I have seen, which is quite a few, I think this is the worst episode so far. Perhaps of the whole series, I don't knowmoreless
  • Great episode. This definately made this a great show.

    Okay. This episode is great! If you've never seen it, watch it. This one is just plain funny. Ashley and Hillary go shopping and a security guard stopped them. Hillary also had a flash back of when Hillary had her last party. Vivian got caught up recording songs. This guy pretty much tricked her into doing it. She ended up having a lot of fun. Phillip was in a gadget store. He was looking at all these useless gadgets. One was this pencil cup that told him if he ran out to report to Stationary store immediately. There was also a device that made a beeping noise when you lose your keys. Theres also a device that tells you where that device is. While Will and Carlton are looking for dates for Hillary's costume party. They're are girls that they hit on that don't like them. One has a boy friend. Then Will and Carlton find Ms. Perfect sitting on a bench. They run over to her and look back and forth.moreless
