    10
    On "Jonny Comes Marching Home", an episode of the UPN comedy 'All of Us', Will Smith, writer and executive producer of the show, guest stars as Jonny, an old friend of Dirk, Robert, and Neesee's.



    In this episode, Jonny (Will Smith), a divorcee, comes to visit his three old college buddies (Neesee, Robert, and Dirk). Everyhing begins nice and smoothly, then Neesee and Jonny shared a very, very passionate kiss. But that wasn't the problem. When Neesee, Jonny, Robert, Dirk, Tia, and Jonelle go on a road trip, that's when things get ugly.



    Jonny and Neesee got engaged and made their announcement to everyone while on the trip. Robert became very unhappy at this decision and insisted that they weren't ready for marriage, which is marriage number two for the both of them. Neesee, surprisingly, took her ex-husband's advice and Jonny also agreed that they were not ready to step into a second marriage.



    This was by far one of the funniest episodes of All of Us that i've ever seen. The writing flowed and the laughs just kept on coming. Will Smith's performance in this episode really glowed, and his comic genius once again reminds me of that of his hit 90s sitcom, 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'. He showed audiences in this episode that he can work behind the scenes, and still be great on the scene. The stars of the show really seemed to give it everything they had this time around. They showed me that they cared about what they were doing and it made me laugh all the way through. This episode proves to me that 'All of Us' is actually a comedy. In previous episodes, I kind of got the idea that they were trying to give viewers

    a "dramedy" (drama + comedy), but the writers, producers, and actors completely ban together in this episode to really bring the laughs. To bring in Will Smith on a guest spot was also a smart move by the producers of the show. But, I do wonder if the non-existence of the drama + comedy formula that was previously used came non-existent because of Smith's appearance. We will soon see, but for now, I am very pleased with the performance of the actors. Prayerfully they can keep up the pace.
