Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's third season simultaneously provided some of the best and worst episodes of the show's six-year run. Set up as a classic collision of streets and society, the show soon found Will (Will Smith) beginning to adapt a little too well to his upper-crust home. He transfers to the same prep academy as Carlton (Alfonso Ribeiro), peruses Ivy League colleges, and truly starts to believe everything comes to him easily. Two spoiled characters (Carlton and Hilary, played by Karyn Parsons) are tolerable, but three begins to get grating. Five is even worse, if you count parents Philip and Vivian Banks (James Avery and Janet Hubert-Whitten), who jumped on the whining bandwagon just enough for their tired butler, Geoffrey (Joseph Marcell) to abruptly quit for one episode.

While strong family core values remained the show's focus (Avery and Hubert-Whitten are good role models for parents who don’t try to be their children's buddy), Will became less of a good-natured jokester and more of a flagrant womanizer, going as far as to trick an abstinent girl (Kim Fields) into thinking they had married to get her into bed. Other less entertaining storylines included Philip's run for Superior Court judge against his sleazy mentor (Sherman Helmsley), and Will's possession of drugs, which Carlton accidentally consumes and nearly dies from (leading to the first of Smith's clumsy attempts at teary confrontations; in later seasons he would prove more successful at them). The show also wrote in Hubert-Whitten's pregnancy resulting in a new baby for the Banks, and gave Hilary a "real" job as a weather girl. Season three's highlights include the Banks family's appearance on Oprah, and more instances of Carlton's famous dance to Tom Jones' "It's Not Unusual" -- with guest appearance by Jones as his guardian angel. And that, we can never get enough of.--Ellen A. Kim

Product Description

There's a lot hip-hoppenin' in the Fresh Prince's third season showcased in this fabulous 4-Disc Set: Philip runs for Superior Court judge (and runs into plenty of comic complications). Vivian develops a taste for sardines and Rocky Road (guess who's pregnant). Hilary lands a gig as a TV weather reporter (although she probably thinks an occluded front is a new kind of bustier). But the biggest story is that Will is ready to graduate. He's checking colleges (including sororities from alpha to gamma to bad-mama jamma). And choking when his mom wants him to come back to Philly ? because this homeboy realizes that home now means the fly flair of Bel-Air!

5.0 out of 5 stars The 3rd season of the Fresh Prince!!! November 26, 2005
Format:DVD
The 3rd season would be the last season for Janet Hubert-Whitten who because of her pregnancy was let go from the show and was replaced for the 2nd half of the show's 6 yr. run by Daphne Maxwell-Reid (Tim Reid's Wife). Anyway the episode list for the 3rd season are The Following:

50. How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Will returns home from spending the summer in Philadelphia with a new look that doesn't sit well with Uncle Phil.

51. Will Gets Committed

Philip and Vivian organize a cleanup effort in the riot-torn remains of their old LA neighborhood.

52. That's No Lady, That's My Cousin

Enrolled at the newly coed Bel-Air Prep, Ashley begins dressing to entice guys, using Will's preferences in women as her examples; Will and Carlton's prep school goes coed.

53. Hilary Gets a Job

Hilary gets a job reporting weather on television.

54. Mama's Baby, Carlton's Maybe

Carlton prepares for a dinner date with his former girlfriend, Cindy, forgiving her for rejecting him several months earlier, but when she arrives with a newborn baby named Carlton Jr., the entire Banks family is stunned. Philip refuses to believe that the baby is his grandchild until a blood test proves it; Vivian reprimands Cindy for not coming to them for advice. Will, however, suspects that the inexperienced Carlton never had a chance to father a baby. Determined to accept his responsibility, Carlton elopes with Cindy to a small-town chapel. While waiting for the preacher to marry them, they realize that they're too young and too incompatible to spend the rest of their lives together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sitcom in the middle of its six-year run February 20, 2006
By Eduardo
Format:DVD
Hi there! I just finished watching the third season of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and was very pleased. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air made its debut in the early 90's and it's easy to see how times have changed since then, yet many of the issues and jokes in the show are still funny and fresh(how convenient). Without ruining the season for you, the highlights of this season include Philip Banks's run for political office, Hilary's finding of a job(for longer than a day!), and Vivian's pregnancy. The season is full of funny moments; no less than the previous seasons, and there are also many familiar faces that show up as guests, including "Mr. Jefferson", Oprah Winfrey, and D. L. Hughley. The most amazing thing about these season DVDs are that they have a great price (I bought mine at Best Buy for $21 plus tax, and the price on Amazon is around that too); not like DVD sets like Friends or CSI (still great shows though!). If you were pleased with the first two seasons this will not disappoint, and for those who have never watched the Fresh Prince it's such a good show that it's not hard to catch on even if you don't watch the seasons in numerical order.

The only thing I am not impressed with is this season's (or last season's) special features. The special features include a "documentary" kind of thing with some tidbits on the actors/guests as highlights from all three seasons are shown, and a blooper reel. Some of the bloopers on the reel are really funny, yet the only problem with it is that it shows the SAME bloopers that are shown during the credits of many of the episodes. Chances are that you will watch the special features after watching most of the episodes, and have already seen the bloopers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh Prince of Belair February 14, 2014

Always liked Will Smith. With what is available on TV these days, it is refreshing to find something that is actually funny without any language, sex, or violent issues.

This Third Season of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" finds Will getting off on the wrong foot with Phil & Vivian in the season opener "How I Spent My Summer Vacation". Will's returned from his summer vacation in Philly with a new look & demeanor that doesn't bode well with Uncle Phil. In "Here Comes The Judge", Will gets arrested for getting numerous outstanding parking tickets, & Phil hires an ex-convict under Will's recommendation in "Robbing The Banks", & soon comes to regret it. Will & Carlton have a run-in with guest-star Riddick Bowe in "You Bet Your Life" when their car breaks down en route to Las Vegas, while Carlton is depressed about not getting accepted into Princeton, so his guardian angel in the form of guest-star Tom Jones shows up in the episode "The Alma Matter". Will & Carlton play a prank on Geoffrey via a fake lottery ticket in "Winner Takes Off", & Vivian has a baby in "Bundle of Joy" - where everyone seems to be delighted except Ashley. Carlton's former girlfriend visits him with a surprise, a baby daughter, in "Mama's Baby Carlton's Maybe" - featuring guest-star Lark Voorhies ("Saved by the Bell"). A girl at school showers Will with expensive gifts in "P.S., I Love You". Phil goes up against his former mentor Judge Robertson (played by Sherman Hemsley) in the same episode. The Bankses are invited to appear on the Oprah Winfrey Show in "A Night At The Oprah" - except Will that is. Phil loses to Judge Robertson in the election in "Asses To Ashes". As you can see, there are plenty of hilarious & dramatic moments during this Third Season of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air". There would be one major cast change after this season - Janet Hubert-Whitten would leave at season's end & was replaced by Daphne Maxwell-Reid in the role of Vivian the following season. With that transitional change to come, make sure you purchase "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air - The Complete Third Season" for your DVD library today!

R.I.P., Sherman Hemsley (Judge Robertson).
