  • Another plain awesome episode

    I loved this episode. Will must decide between Jazz and Tyrique to take to a game show in order to win a brand new car but after some thinking reluctantly agrees on taking Carlton after his friends sabotage Will's nerdy partner. There were so many things that worked brilliantly in this episode. His friends were hilarious, Carlton was priceless as was Will and the plot was brilliant. This makes for an entertaining episode with lots of jokes! Definite must seemoreless

    8.0
    This was a quality episode. I think this was maybe bit of a step down from the previous episode. My favorite part was both of Will's friends Ty and Jazz are together. I think this was the first and only time it happened. It was funny seeing them trying to act smart. Also funny during the game show was Carlton's answers to the questions. I think it was funny he never learned to keep them short. Again this episode explores Phillp's "fixing" of things. I think they could have expanded this a bit more. The best part of the episode and one the highlights of the series was the fight between Will and Jazz. And later on Ty joining in after Will and Jazz make up.moreless

  • Will needs to decide who he'll go on a gameshow with

    9.3
    Will is going to go on a game show called Double Trouble and picks a guy from school to be his partner, but Jazz and Tyriuq (i think thats how you spell it) send threatning letters to him so he doesn't go on the show with Will. They want Will to pick one of them, but Will picks Carlton. Jazz and Tyriuq then go on the show together and compete against Will and Carlton. During a round, Tyriuq is asked who Jazz's best friend is, and seeing Jazz and Will hugging and being friends again, he joins in the hug, crying. aww.moreless

    Double Trouble equals double the laughs in this hilarious Fresh Prince episode where Will gets on a game show. There are some very funny scenes that come from this episode such as Kellogg getting threatening notes to leave town and Jazz getting thrown out of the house instead of having to walk to his car like Tyriq. The competition for who is Will’s best friend is a very funny plot as is Philip’s repairing skills which always seem to send Geoffrey to the emergency room.



    Carlton doing longwinded answers and the capital “O” in Ohio for Tyriq’s answer are just two of the great gags in the final scene which is the game show and is side-splitting as is the rest of the episode and this is definitely one of the best episodes in the series.moreless
