I saw this when I googled for the episode that was on tonight..

http://www.tvtome.co...PrinceofBelAir/

Under 'news':

March 06, 2005

Will Smith came to the creators of this show and My Wife & Kids show to announce a proposition about a spin-off of Fresh Prince about Will grown up and married with kids.


What do you think? Would you guys watch it? I know i'd tune in, I LOVED Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

I loved Fresh Prince as well, and I'd definitely give it a watch, but this could go horribly wrong. I don't think the show would be the same without the rest of the cast members, and including them would just be weird.

I'd give it a chance. Fresh Prince is pretty funny, although I was too young to see it as a kid...

I find it hard to believe that Will Smith would do episodic television.

I'd definitely give it a try, but I don't think it would compare to the original.

Hmmm, I like him in movies better. I like when he gets a litty edgy like in Bad Boys1/2

I, Robot was one of my funnest DVD's of the year too....I enjoyed it.

We'll see how this goes though, could go really bad

I loved Fresh Prine - just watched it again last night for the first time in years. This thing MIGHT work, especially if Carlton is in there as the metrosexual "uncle" (since they were really cousins).

Ya, the original Fresh Prince was great, but I'm not sure how a new one would work out.

He should just stick to making movies.
Quit making music and please don't attempt to revive this series. It ran its course.

I agree. BTW, what ever happened to the original wife on the show. All of a sudden there was this other lady.... what happened?

The dad didnt get along with her. It's in a VERY old TV GUIDE. The episode they changed the old wife for the new one they made a joke along the lines of" Jazz: Hey is it me or does your aunt look diffrent? ::everyone looks at the camera::

I think it's a great idea. I've always thought it would be an interesting idea to see if a series could survive beyond the children becoming adults.

For example, I really enjoyed Boy Meets World - the perfect mix of dry humor and veiled "adult" humor disguised Disney-style with a clean family coating so the kids never got the adult jokes.

They rode out Cory and Topanga all the way into college and through at least one season of their married life. I would like to see a series that could pull off carrying the show into an all-new series. In the Boy Meets World scenario, the premise would have morphed from sitcom about a boy and his family/friends as he grows into a "Friends" - style show, and then as they have kids, etc. it would transition into a Growing Pains or Family Ties show and "Cory" would go from the kid in the show to the parent figure and their kids would take over as the main protagonists in the show.

Oh well, just a thought I've had from time to time. It would be interesting but probably a major challenge for writers to keep you interested over such a long period of time.

My favorite Boy Meets World "veiled" joke I didn't catch as a kid:

Feeny - "There's a first time for everything Ms. Lawrence" (Topanga).
Cory *half-heartedly* - "Trust me Mr. Feeny, that line won't get you anywhere."
Fear breeds Hesitation;
Hesitation will make your worst fears come true.

Didn't "Saved by the Bell" try to make another series? I think the kids were in College or something.

Yeah, there's a lot of underlying sex jokes/references that I catch when I watch it now.

The dad didnt get along with her. It's in a VERY old TV GUIDE. The episode they changed the old wife for the new one they made a joke along the lines of" Jazz: Hey is it me or does your aunt look diffrent? ::everyone looks at the camera::


I actually have that episode on the PC.. Jazz stops by to give a baby pillow to Vivian and Will notices the wrong name is embroidered (sp?) on it. Jazz says "You know.. since you've had the baby, there's something different about you".. and Will looks at the camera.. that line was classic..

I want the episode where Will got shot. I have seasons 1, 3 and 4.. I want 5 and 6 :(

I highly doubt Will Smith would give up $20 million per film to do a decade old rehash. Of course, with the Friends cast as well as Tim Allen and Seinfeld getting $1 miillion per, you never know.

It's not like the actor who plays Carlton has anything better going on. He's a security guard, I think.
