8 Moments From The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air That Emotionally Wrecked Us
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air might be a comedy, but make no mistake, the series is also a real tear-jerker. Throughout the show's six-season run, Will Smith and the Banks squad tackle serious issues such as grief, racism, and drug use. Who can forget when Uncle Phil and Will develop a new level of respect for each other in the very first episode? Or when Carlton buys a gun after Will saves him from being shot? And, of course, we all remember Will's emotional breakdown when his father comes back into his life only to leave again. So many heart-rending moments have stuck with us over the past 30 years, and we're revisiting some of the most memorable. Get your box of tissues ready.
