Corey wins a brief guest appearance on an episode of the 1950's-era sitcom "Better Days." However the show's child starlet Ally Parker wants to try life as a normal kid in the public school system after years of on-set tutoring. This episode, which doubles as a pilot to a spin-off series, focuses on her attempts to do so with the help of her nerdy cousin Carly, and the problems both she and Corey have when she returns to the set.

What the....!
13 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

This episode would be the only episode from the entire show, or rather the only episode in any show that focuses on guest characters much more than the actual characters.

Cory gets the golden opportunity to perform of a show called 'Better Days'. The main protagonist of the show decides to join public school and goes through a roller coaster journey right at the beginning. After that, in the end, all is fine. (I am not elaborating it as if I do, then I have a habit to include spoilers. Therefore, here's just the review).

The main reason to why this episode stinks is that instead of concentrating on Cory's experience on the show, they completely move on to a new plot of the pathos of the main girl of the show when she decides to join public school.

I am not giving it a 1 because if this episode would've been for a completely new show called 'Better days', I would definitely have rated it more and typed a better review because it was interesting.

Acting wise,all the actors were good. The 'Delivery' thing was hilarious. But the number of gags could've increased a bit. I am going to go with a 4 out of 10 or rather, a 2 out of 5 for this episode. Don't lose the plot of the show.
