TV: Fresh Prince of Bel-Air S2 – (2.5/4)
Trekking along through this revisit. Not much more to say here so I’ll keep it short:
It’s still good but not as good as season one. The main goal of a sitcom is to be funny, “Fresh Prince” continues to have successful situational comedy throughout.
The consistency of this comedic-quality is what makes this show shine. You never turn on a re-run of “Fresh Prince” and say – “Oh, not this one…”
Where it loses half a star for me? I like a dash of sentiment in my sitcoms, but oh man it can be overbearing and exhausting here. Going forward the series starts to tackle more thematic situations with a less black-or-white edge, I look forward to that balance which occurs mid-series.
