The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

Will Smith stars in the continuing story of a kid whose life got twisted upside down when he became the Prince of Bel-Air. In season five of Fresh Prince, Will (Smith) meets Lisa (Nia Long) – 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 (Alfonso Ribeiro) finds his soul sister through online dating. Unfortunately, that’s only half right. It’s Hilary (Karyn Parsons). 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.
