The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air

Eyes On The Prize

The origin of Will Smith's fame and too many mentions from The Graham Norton Show got me to binge watch this series which I think has a potential to be a typical one-time-watch sitcom. The creators made the relations pretty much clear from the first frame now all one seek and wait for is their character development through this journey with hopefully no dips on content or humor. The relation between Will Smith and Tatyana Ali seems interesting (something to look forward especially when she grows up) and is definitely supposed to bring the laughs whilst with James Avery there is a soft spot hidden in there.

After the first season which basically was just a mere introduction to every character and their mundane life which puts more pressure on them in the second one for they better thicken the plot and develop the character further more if they care for the quality offered to the audience. The relation between Carlton and Will is surprisingly been far better than any other for it encourages the typical sibling rivalry and a knack to pull each others leg.

Uncle Philip struggling and surviving through the bombarding of his family's sarcasm towards his skills and physical appearance cannot be not funny and on Will's track his game show sequence is brilliant especially the physical sequence (that they always try to put in but not always works) in the end.
