Movie Reviews

The 3rd season of the Fresh Prince!!!
P. Burgos | Hanford, CA | 11/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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. When Will arrives at the chapel to stop the ceremony, he learns that Cindy has confessed that Carlton wasn't the baby's father and called her parents to take her home, leaving Carlton bewildered and heartbroken. Carlton meekly confesses to Will that he's still a virgin, but was willing to marry Cindy, hoping that someday she'd learn to love him in return.

55. P.S. I Love You

Philip intends to railroad off the bench ineffectual Judge Robertson; and Will becomes the "love slave" of a flamboyantly generous plain student.

56. Here Comes the Judge

Will gets arrested for numerous parking tickets as Phil runs for judge against incumbent Judge Robertson.

57. Boyz in the Woods

Philip takes Will and Carlton on a camping trip that turns out to be a disaster when snow traps the unhappy campers.

58. A Night at the Oprah

The Bankses appear on Oprah's show and fail to invite Will on-stage, which may cause Philip to lose the election.

59. Asses to Ashes

Election results are in and Philip fights to remain cool amid lies by Judge Robertson, which prompt Will to confront the outspoken incumbent.

60. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

At Vivian's Lamaze class, Will cozies up to a pregnant sportswriter, who takes him to a game -- and delivers more than just fun.

61. The Cold War

Carlton Banks is very depressed after being rejected by Paula, unaware that she has left him for Will. Meanwhile, Philip and Vivian receive an envelope from their doctor containing an ultrasound picture revealing the sex of Vivian's fetus. Not wanting to spoil their surprise in the delivery room, they entrust the sealed envelope to their butler, Geoffrey ...then curiosity gets the better of them.

62. Mommy Nearest

Will's mother tells Will that she's broken her engagement to Robert and eagerly awaits her son's graduation so they can return to Philadelphia together. A shocked Will is afraid to tell her that he wants to attend college in California and remain with his Bel-Air family and friends, and suffers a nightmarish fantasy of what it would be like still living with his mother when he's 60 years old.

63. Winner Takes Off

Will and Carlton convince Geoffrey that he has won a multimillion dollar lottery.

64. Robbing the Banks

Philip is quick to judge an ex-con Will urged him to hire as a handyman and temporary assistant after the house is robbed.

First aired: 1/25/1993

As Vivian's delivery date approaches, the family fantasizes about what the baby will mean to each of them: Ashley feels all but invisible, Geoffrey feels overwhelmed by the family's demands, and Vivian feels like she's having triplets.

71. Ain't No Business Like Show Business

Will lands a spot in a comedy showcase after accompanying a comic friend to an audition.

72. The Way We Were

Series clips illustrate family recollections as the kids put together a scrapbook for Vivian and Philip, who want to renew their vows on their anniversary.

73. Six Degrees of Graduation

Vy anticipates Will's graduation with enthusiasm, but there may be discord when she learns Will is failing music. To pass his music class, Will must sing at the graduation ceremony -- with a class of eight-year-olds.

Great sitcom in the middle of its six-year run

"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. I suppose it makes for a nice way to get a laugh at the bloopers in one sitting (most of the individual bloopers last for less than half a minute and most of the episodes had an individual blooper during the credits), but it would be nice if you could see some bloopers that were never previously shown instead of getting a second laugh at the same bloopers.

Overall, great season but less than mediocre special features.

5/5 Season overall
2/5 Special Features.

Stay Fresh!"

"This is the best season ever of Fresh Prince! My favorite season 3 moments are the family on Oprah, when Judge Robertson dies, when the sportscaster goes in labor, when the family is robbed, and when Vivian goes in labor. Special features include bloopers and cast reunion."
