DVD Review, Fresh Prince of Bel-air The Complete Fifth Season
In West Philadelphia, born and raised…on a playground is where I spent most of my days…chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool….Ahhh, one of the best theme.songs.ever. Ever! Thank you, Quincy Jones.
And Will Smith? Who would have thought that the Fresh Prince of Bel Air would be the one (along with his cheesy music career) that would launch him into one of the biggest A-list superstars of our time?
Throughout the six seasons of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, one thing was for sure. Never did the scriptwriter seem to lack incorporating a cheesetastic, light-hearted moment. The entire cast worked well together and for the six seasons of its existence, the show matured along with Will’s rapidly growing star.
But let’s get technical here. According to numbers, season four is when peeps started to lose interest. Many have said that season five was when fans started to get a tad irked with the way things were playing out. Viewers were dropping significantly as each season passed. And because of the huge superstar status that Will established by this time, many felt that he had grown “too big” for this sitcom.
But let’s face it, the show was fun and after reacquainting myself with this legendary sitcom, it really made me miss the corny television shows of the 90′s.
About Season FIVE:
This season, Will meets Lisa – and before you can say “Go slow, bro,” he’s in love, engaged and standing before the minister with 50 pounds of iced shrimp melting in the banquet hall. All that romance must be contagious, because Carlton finds his soul sister through online dating. (Unfortunately, that’s only half right. It’s Hilary.) And there’s a lot more than love going on as Will grapples with a big orange whale, a mobster, a bear, Jay Leno, Lisa’s cantankerous dad and in one of the series’ most memorable episodes, a bullet with his name on it.
