The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air

Stop Will! In The Name Of Love

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.

The writer surely ran out of ideas on "Valentine's" which itches down the throat throughout the episode since the forced input of lame one-liners is clearly visible which even though works, doesn't fit in any possible way.
