Memorable episode
24 December 2009 | by (Scotland, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is certainly one of the most situational episodes of the Fresh Prince that you'll no doubt remember.

Will fancies himself as a chef and ends up burning the entire kitchen down, after attempting to infamously kick the fire out! Unfortunately, Uncle Phil has guests over for dinner who could help boost his career. With the Uncle, Aunt and guests unaware of what has happened, Will and the rest try to conceal the damage.

It's a solid enough episode and season opener. It has some good funnies. Definitely one you'll remember, probably because it's quite a simple episode. 7/10
