The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air Season 5 is the continuation of the always funny and often heart wamring tales of Will Smith playing a character of the same name. Season 5 leaves off where season 4 ended. When we last saw Will, he had returned to Philadelphia with his California Aunt and Uncle and cousins in tow. After attending a Phillies game and reenacting scene's from Rocky will finally confronts the very bully that sent him packing for cali in the first place. The first episode of season 5 leaves off with Will's dilemma of now that he has finally erased the unfair label of him being a chicken in philly, should he stay or should he go back to California. Other memorable episodes in Season 5, and there are many is Aunt Vivian and Uncle Phil's appearance on Soul Train, to commemorate their anniversary. Will Smith also shows his acting chops and shows his dramatic acting abilities in the episode where Will takes a bullet for Carlton. An image that still evokes emotion is the final scene of the episode where Will lays in a hospital bed and begins to cry after he convinces Carlton to hand over the gun he purchased to protect himself and his cousin Will. Season 5 introduces Will's new and through the rest of the season love interest Lisa played by Nia Long. Which results in even more hillarity. Especially Will's interaction with her father played by John Amos. ( Good Times)Ironically a little know fact is Jada Pinkett Smith was originally cast to play Lisa, but producers deemed her too short to play a love interest to Will who is 6'3 and chose Long instead.

If your a fan of the series, Season 5 is definetly a must have to add to your collection. The great thing about Fresh Prince is there isnt a weak season in the series and the show doesnt loose steam through it's 6 year run.

I am a huge Fresh Prince fan. Never missed it when it was on the air, then always watched it in reruns. To own the complete series is a given for any Fresh Prince fan. This is the first season I've given anything less than 5 stars to, and the reason behind it is that I am rating the season itself. I was sad to see the real Aunt Viv leave. The new Aunt Viv just didn't fit in. I noticed a few episodes that didn't feature any scenes w/her and surprisingly, I found those funnier than any episodes that did feature her. It's sad that they couldn't work out their differences for the sake of the show but that's Hollywood I guess. I watched every episode and plan to buy the last 2 seasons ASAP. The show itself is a gem and 100x better than any of the garbage on TV today.

I have been waiting so long for this season to come out! This season is packed with hillarious episodes...

The show never gets dull & is always fun to watch...
I dont see as many re-runs on tv as I used too, so buying this season was the best thing I could have done!!!

Also, please release the other 2 seasons right away...
We all want to see them again too...

Thanks...

I love all movies, television shows and videos Will Smith has ever been in! I've been very patient, now it is time to start bringing my collection of "Fresh Prince of Bellaire" to a close! If you like clean cut family fun and entertainment, with a life lesson or two, then this is the series you want to get! I recommend the entire collection 1-6. Will Smith is an awsome rapper/actor and I love his work! SO THANKS FOR SEASON FIVE AND COME ON SEASON SIX!!! I am a huge fan!

Season 4 of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air ended on a poignant cliffhanger. With Will becoming reminded of how much he truly loved his Philadelphia roots upon experiencing them firsthand during the Banks' family vacation thereto, Smith hesitates to return to Bel-Air. But, after thinking it over (in this case, by contract agreement [gotta love the hilarious opening scene of the Season 5 debut]), Will quickly heads out west to resume his alter ego.
Speaking of the season opener, the two-part beginning to the series's fifth year in operation ("The Client"/"What's Will Got To Do With It") parodies Motown in its caricature of record company founder, Berry Gordy, as "Gordy Berry". (For those viewers who have seen the miniseries, The Temptations, actor Obba Babatunde played Berry Gordy in that movie in 1998, four years after the brief stint as "Gordy Berry" in Fresh Prince.) In terms of the plot of this episode, Will attempts to help Ashley launch her signing career through auditioning for Gordy, with the hopes of getting her discovered in the music business. While the result is unfortunate, the hilarity and cleverness that ensue in the buildup are not to be reckoned with!
Many of the episodes of Season 5 contain thick plots and detailed storylines--whether elaborated upon over two episodes, or packed into one, each--which help to make them (and the season itself) quite memorable. A lot of classics are featured this year, including "The Wedding Show (Psyche!
