The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air: Papa's Got a Brand New Excuse (1994) is claimed to be the most emotional episode, due to the fact of how Will Smith felt about his relationship with his father, both in the show and in reality. Although his real-life father was there for him growing up, Will had a lot of friends who never knew their fathers, and his emotions in the final scene came from thinking of all his friends who never had a father in their lives. His hug with James Avery was known to be a hug from man to man, and not them being in character. It is the highest rated episode of the entire series and to have a rating higher than 9. See more »

Sexy, upscale, funny, and intelligent that was "The, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"!
Inner-city rap met upscale Beverly Hills society in this black sitcom. Philadelphia homeboy Will Smith was off to Beverly Hills to live with his rich, pretentious relatives the Banks. Only you had differences occur Will brought a little soul to the strict Beverly Hills mansion, only to be taught a few things by the Banks as well. The Banks family had the uncle of Will that was Philip (James Avery) a successful attorney who knew all about the problems a black man faced in a white society. The Banks had two daughters who I describe both as being just as sexy and beautiful as ever first the oldest and spoiled Hillary (Karyn Parsons) and the youngest the pretty Ashley (Tatyana Ali). The Banks family always had to deal with problems in life and had fun of it in the process. The theme song by Smith and partner Jeff Townes "Parents Just Don't Understand" said it all. You can now catch the reruns of the famous Will Smith on both cable channels TBS and WGN this popular black sitcom is still well enjoyed.
