The show that took Will Smith from Fresh Prince to Will Smith, action superstar. This is one of my favorite 90s sitcoms. I even loved the theme song which I'll throw into my DJ sets from time to time to a huge sing-a-long response from the crowd. If you watched this show growing up, I bet you can still recite the entire song! I enjoyed the different characters- the hilariously Republican preppy Carlton who couldn't dance to save his life and had NO game, the stuck up spoiled princess, Hilary, the witty and cutting English butler, Geoffrey and of course, the Fresh Prince's wacky BFF (one of the best mix DJs EVER) Jazzy Jeff. If you've never seen it, give it a go and have a laugh.

Oh, this was one of the greats! But watching it now, you wouldn't think Will Smith would really evolve into anything other than an in-your-face movie comic, like Chris Rock. But he's clearly ironed out any problems he had as an actor, and he's just fantastic in everything he does these days.

This was by far one of the best shows of the 90's! It will always be one of my favorites!

One of the great, universally acknowledged truths of current popular culture is this: In no universe has Will Smith ever been considered edgy. Today, Smith is known as one of the biggest, most bankable movie stars on the planet, and to today's kids, that seems a dimension away from the Will Smith that was first introduced to the people of my own generation: Will Smith as the Fresh Prince, the famed rapper who burst onto the scene in the 80's and hit it big because his material - far from being the …

Fresh Prince is thankfully, another one of those nostalgic sitcoms that still retains its humorous punch after 20 odd years. The clashing personalities of Will (Will Smith) and Uncle Phil (James Avery) is the main reason why this show is so much fun. If you're having a bad day, the Fresh Prince will cheer you up.

There were probably more misses than hits overall, but "Fresh Prince" could be extremely funny.

I've started watching Fresh Prince reruns on TV with my wife since she never got to experience this show when it first aired in the 1990s (she grew up in a developing country). While I liked the show as a kid, I'm loving it as an adult. One of the great things about the show is that it stays PG for the kids, but pushes close to the edge in subtle ways for adults. For example, the show has some goofy moments, which will appeal to kids. However, the show's funniest moments come from the more sophisticated …
