Heavy layoffs at WBN prompt Hilary's boss to come up with a bright idea. The stock-picking contest is in a dead heat, Hilary's job is on the line, and Skye's got a strategy to bank on.

"Odd, sarcastic and with a dash of sitcom melodrama, 'Stock & Awe' mixes basic financial advice with humour to teach viewers about a world where the TSX and Dow Jones are consulted like daily horoscopes. One of their financial tips: keep a separate wallet for receipts -- just not a Louis Vuitton wallet. The show also uses street interviews to highlight how many of us lack basic financial knowledge. Advice is offered, and hopefully future shows will move from the financial basics to more detailed tips." - Walletpop Canada
