    First time i watch The Fresh Prince of Bel-air was 2011-2012. And before that i know Will Smith only from his movies.
    Year before that my father died, and i fall into a depression. And i thinking to watch a lot of comedy shows to beat the sadness. After watching Friends, Two and a Half men, Spin City, Cheers and then i saw Fresh Prince...
    My dad was big bald mustashe guy, verry scary when got angry but at the same time he was generous, kind, funny and verry verry loveble person....great dancer too for his weight.
    This show and James Avery character saved me from depression.

    I want you to know that I have been a fan of yours for quite some time the movies are you all done and I only play your rap only on youtube but I also want you to know I always enjoyed them and I am also sorry to see James Avery pass away like that and that he was an awesome guy not only just that he’s a man of courage he acted it in a movie wants “license to drive“ i’m with Corey Haim and Corey Feldman he was the driver instructor and he also made an appearance at the end of the old movie to
    I hope that there will be a documentary about you being updated not just about you as a rapper and your ability to act and the fresh Prince of Bel Air and fresh Prince of the lamp
    In reward of now there should be a documentary about you what is your beginnings and your life and a courier focusing on everything that you acted in because I seen a lot of them and I hope that you include all of the films that you stared i all of them

    I was a white kid in an all white town in a state that's almost all white people. This show put a optimistic view on a "stable" family taking in a "troubled kid". I was adopted at 9. No other show addressed a situation as close to my own as this one did. Granted my experiences weren't joyous funny or even effective. It was nice seeing a better example on screen though. Sadly we didn't watch TV in my adoptive home, however once a week we went into town to a local pizzeria and when we went the newest episode of Fresh Prince was always playing. The adoptive parents didn't plan it, that was just their schedule. He did seem to be the ultimate father figure, of which I have never personally witnessed anything comparable. (I can't think of a father figure on screen that appeared to be even a "acting father" better.
    My view on fathers was always and remains a view of about-to-erupt-in-anger.
