Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
When Will (Will Smith), an inner-city teenager from Philly is sent by his mother to live with his relatives (the Banks) in Bel-Air, everybody is in for a surprise. It is funny how influence can go both ways.Written by

Janet Hubert hates Will Smith so much that when the media starting bringing up the idea of a Fresh Prince reunion, she angrily responded, "I will never do anything with an a_________ like Will Smith". See more »
Whenever Jazz ins thrown out of the house, he is wearing dark glasses, even if he entered the house in clear glasses. The footage of Jazz being thrown out was done once, and the director made sure he was wearing the same shirt in episodes where he was thrown out. See more »

OK, so I never watched this as a kid growing up. I was into manga, nickelodeon, Disney etc. However, now I am 25 i decided to go through all the TV shows I missed whilst growing up and this was one of them. Boy oh boy, I was not disappointed. Despite the last show being run over 20 years ago, this comedy is well worth the watch. Will Smith is obviously the star, but the performances by every single person in the Banks family was memorable. Some episodes were there just for the laughs, some were slower and some had serious learning reflections. The latter is what made this show stand out. Going from an episode that made me laugh to one with a serious message of gun control or racism sets this show apart from the majority of sitcoms. It was, well, a fresh experience.
One of the few gripes I had was that some of the jokes were repeated many, many times. It did start to grate on me when Will would say "You know what I'm sayyyyyiiinnnngggg?" in that characteristic tone. The other thing that slightly annoyed me was the re-casting of Vivian. I understand why it happened, but I just do not think the replacement was anywhere near as good.
Other than these minor points, I thoroughly enjoyed watching this show from S01E01 to S06E24. If you have not watched this show before, you should. If you have seen this show before, you probably should watch it again.
