My father was fundamentally against sitcoms growing up. Not because the majority of them were filled with corny jokes and attempts at turning lines into lame-ass catch-phrases or they looked like they had a production budget of a late-night Skinemax flick.
But mostly because the only things he enjoyed watching were Clint Eastwood movies and CNN. Which to a kid might as well have been poison. (Except for Clint Eastwood movies because at least people got shot in them).
Naturally, because my father was against sitcoms, I wanted to see as many as I could. And none made me happier to watch than The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. One, because my mom's side of the family was from Philadelphia and I'd spend my summers with them. And two, because it featured a smart-mouthed, handsome young man who said things to his elders that would probably result in me catching a beating as a child.
Plus, I mean, the way he zinged Carlton was incredible.
Lol got 'em.
So seeing this reunion photo of the Fresh Prince family, sans the incredible Uncle Phil (RIP), is getting me all sorts of nostalgic.
Now this reunion photo might have a little something to do with the the hullabaloo surrounding the Fresh Prince reboot that Will was talking about. And I mean, hey, if the objectively un-funny Full House could find renewed life on Netflix with the crapshow that is Fuller House, I'm sure there will be a hell of a lot of people willing to get on board with Big Will and the family for some more Bel-Air action.
I know I'd be down.
For those in need of a little refresher, the sitcom aired on NBC from 1990 to 1996 and produced one of the most iconic theme songs in TV history. If you don't know the words by heart, you're clearly not a '90s kid.
