The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air

You Bet Your Life

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.

The second season definitely narrowed down the priorities and showed what they will focus on and what it is all about like Geoffrey, Vivian and Ashley turns out to be supportive (at least for now it seems like) cast while surprisingly Carlton and Hillary had almost parallel role and maybe also because these characters are strong and have genuine depth in them. And as far as the plot is concerned they still haven't advanced from what they started so they better boost up and bring out the big guns.

It may have an interesting approach towards a new idea which is always intriguing enough to invest in it but it surely isn't funny enough to be entertained thoroughly with it and addition to that the special appearance doesn't work as anticipated too.
