The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air

Father Of The Year

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 third season one can easily deduce that the bonding between Alfonso Rebeiro and Will Smith despite of being polar opposite in nature and taste that they rely upon. Having said that, the other characters are left undercooked except for James Avery whose portrayal as a disturbed father of teen kids is brilliant. Karyn Parsons' same old ideology may provide a laugh here and there but it can also annoy you.

Father Of The Year works like a charm as a whole family drama thing, for despite of focusing primarily on Will, the equation of each individual character with the baby draws out most of its laugh but unfortunately fails to deliver the anticipated emotion on screen.
