The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air

Will's Misery

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.

The fourth season is probably the best season up till now as it goes bold and doesn't even flinch on taking huge decisions by visiting new places, tracks and characters that are interesting, emotional, humorous and more importantly sensible. And they also began this eerie approach on the characters and their awareness of the outer world that is flat out hilarious.

Will's track hits hard and fast and is the only one that keeps the audience engaged and entertained for the other track is flat out dull and exhausting that blends in and creates this mediocre episode which is saved by an hilarious and unexpected climax that is related to Carlton.
