Ashley is having a sleepover, and the girls ask Will to tells them a scary story. He recounts the horrifying tale of the first day he started going to Bel-Air Academy - a place that is revealed to be an all boys school (meaning no fly honeys). More terrors ensue when he is introduced to the glee club, square teachers. His classmates seem to like him but he causes a problem when he carves his name in the alumni school desk.

Will: No, Carlton, if I had your friends, and if I woke up one day and found that I had a little horse on a polo shirt, I'd jump off the Empire State Building and hope to catch my eyelid on nail!
Carlton Banks: With quips like that, It's no wonder you're the toast of the town!

The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air

Day Damn One

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.

As often happens, the first season is good and demands attention from the viewers wanting them more of the family drama which writers better deliver if not all of it but some of it (its diplomatic to keep big guns for the future) and would be wise of them if they keep an open-end on some tracks to pick up swiftly on season 2.

Each and every sarcastic punch lines delivered by Will Smith hits all the high notes on comic timing and the rest of it is left on writing where the build up of the legacy of the school (even the court house drama is amazing) and the stories of it makes it more hilarious.
