Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Phil's friend is not his friend?

    Two great stories to the episode but I personally liked the Carlton storyline more! And I love how Carlton and Hilary end up being matched and how funny Hilary is when she cannot comprehend they have been tricked! She was great in the episode. Will's storyline, whilst being good, rather uninterested me at times.
  • Will's new job

    Another fine episode with two stories. Both were good. Carlton uses the internet to find a women. I may be wrong but this episode was one of the first to use the internet in a storyline. It was funny that Hilary also uses the internet and that she and Carlton end up on accident on a date. It was also funny how Geoffrey finds out first. I do with that this storyline could've been played out longer. The other storyline was Phillp's old friend is in town and is trying to get some permits. At first he was an enjoyable fellow. He has an open job and Will and Carlton have a competition about it. It was enjoyable seeing them one up each other. It was also good how fast Carlton leaves when he find out the job is unpaid internship. Will takes the job and this one comes with some benefits. In previous times Will gets sucked into this high life. Phillp's friend has a offering for Will to deliver a small bribe to someone who could help him out with his business. Will struggles with his decision and goes to Phillp. Phillp overreacts to Will lectures him before finding out what really happened. What Phillp said to Will was very nice and a good way to end the episode.moreless
