Will there or won’t there, Will?
With everybody fondly remembering how awesome sitcoms were from the mid-’80s through the first several years of the 21st century, “renewal” and “reboot” have become certifiable buzz words in today’s popular culture. From the writing to the casting to the sets to the clever laugh-out-loud humor to the heartwarming moments wrapped in subtle life lessons, it seems that virtually any show with most of its primary cast living these days is being asked about bringing their show back on primetime TV.
Enter Will Smith and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
While The Fresh Prince will remain in reruns (that’s still a plus), that photo of Will Smith looking exactly like James Avery (Uncle Phil) is enough of a gift for fans. It’s a sign of the true specialness and staying power of that sitcom. A unique sign of that once-in-a-lifetime television era.
Like this heartfelt moment between Will and Uncle Phil.
Trust me, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will live on forever.
