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. With this 4-disc set, you are cordially invited to all 25 laugh-out-loud, love-happy Season 5 Episodes of the hit, hilarious show that gave sitcoms street smarts.
From KIDS FIRST!:
Get ready to wipe tears of laughter out of your eyes as you watch the fabulous fifth season of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Will has just enough edge to keep life interesting in his uncle’s mansion, but he’s smooth and sensitive enough to keep it real. During this season, he meets Lisa, falls in love and begins to plan his wedding. He also goes through a series of adventures with his cousins, aunt and uncle from establishing singing careers and dealing with fame to dancing on Soul Train. In spite of mishaps and misunderstandings, Will’s extended family enjoy a unique bond that helps them work through any problem. Geared towards older, teenage viewers, this title has some humor that is not appropriate for young children. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Season Five helps children are working through problems or emotional issues. Some episodes deal with the sobering truth that bad things do happen to good people sometimes as we see when Will gets shot and hospitalized. KIDS FIRST! Child Juror Comments: The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is a very original comedy that's been known as a classic on Nick at Night, and now the entire fifth season is on DVD. It has a catchy theme song, lovable and funny characters, and rather "fresh’ jokes because of the scenario, such as when Will finds the "love of his life" online, and his family is picking on him for it, and also when Will is trying to act like a manager when he has absolutely no experience. The characters treat each other fairly well. Despite they all have their flaws, they all eventually work out their problems and get along again. This series is generally not appropriate for children, but maybe for more of the 12+ age range. There are, however, a few episodes that are family-friendly. Overall, I'd say that this is a refreshing taste of what good comedy is.
