When Phillip starts getting threatening messages over a high-profile trial he is presiding over (based on Heidi Fleiss), The Banks do whatever they can to keep him safe. When Will, Phillip and Carlton make a trip to the gas station, they get more than they bargained for when Carlton confronts a suspicious looking clown named Juggles (Dorien Wilson) - who reveals that he is wearing a bomb, and if Phillip does not cooperate (help him get a big break on TV), he will detonate it. After a huge scene at the courthouse (where Juggles forced them to take him for a show) it is revealed it was a hoax bomb and he is arrested for everything he caused. Written by Unknown

The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air

I, Clownius

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 thought had a potential to be a typical one-time-watch sitcom, but turned out to be something more than that. 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, that it fortunately delivers till the end. The relation between Will Smith and Tatyana Ali seemed interesting on earlier season where the writers could have gone easily (but wasn't explored to that extent) and instead were directed towards Alfonso Rebeiro that draws out the laughs from your typical "sibling rivalry" formula whilst with James Avery there is a soft spot hidden in there that binds it all.

After a bumpy season, the expectations are higher on the final season which unfortunately doesn't go as anticipated and the reason would be the writers that are running out of ideas and creativity that results onto creating a repetitive slog which is a punch in the gut for the viewers as there is a genuine shock and disappointment in the air.

The screenplay is gripping, smart, mature and filled with sketchy sequences that has never not crossed a comedian's dream and the execution lives upto it too with a brilliant performance by Alfonso Rebeiro who is flat out hilarious and despite of having a supportive role shines bright and light.
