 If you were alive during the 90's then you no doubt have memories of watching The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air or at least know the catchy theme song that goes with it. Despite ending over 10 years ago, the show is still going strong with the recent release of Season 5 on DVD. It contains all 25 episodes of the show and that's it. No bonus features or bloopers or anything else. But do we really need anything else when we're talking about The Prince?

The main story arc of Season 5 is the relationship between will and his lovely girlfriend Lisa. It has its ups and downs but for the most part, it remains constant throughout the season. One thing for sure is that Nia Long is definitely a full time cast member and not just some guest star. Speaking of guest starts, there are plenty such as a much younger Jay Leno. 

The Fresh Prince remains to by quite funny, even after all these years of being off the air. Whether it's the constant fat jokes at Uncle Phil's expense or the somewhat questionable racially motivated one liners, the show is one laugh after another. I'm surprised to see how well it has stood up for how old it is. This is one sitcom you don't want to miss. If you haven't seen the show before, then I highly suggest you go back and watch it from the beginning. It shouldn't be too difficult to find all the DVDs since they weren't release that long ago.
