Welcome to Bel-Air, Will Smith
15 February 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Will Smith's 6 season run as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air began in this sharply written pilot that aired in 1990, and is happily being enjoyed now by a whole new generation of people via Netflix.

All the things that make this show so good are highlighted here. The clash between the urban and the upper class worlds, the fab relationship between Smith and the dearly missed James Avery. In short this episode does everything a pilot should do.

Will Smith is the epitome of cool here, and it's very hard to work out how much of his performance is ad-libbed. Whatever he has gone on to do since, or will do in the future, for many he will always be associated with this show.
