  • The end part 2

    10
    Like I said before this is better viewed as one episode but since the DVD split this into two parts. The second part was much better then the first one. Will finally gets caught up in his lie about finding a place and admits it to Carlton. Carlton tires to help Will when he admits it to the family. This shows how far they have grown closer together. It was a great reaction by Phillp when he finds out about Will. Their talks together happened many times and this was one of the best outside of when Will's father came back and left.

    Series finales are about ending things on a good note, tying up loose ends, and not leaving ending This episode did exactly that. The goodbyes Will did to everyone were sweet and genuine. For the most part I believe the cast got along well. You could see that in the goodbye. My favorite goodbye was when Geoffrey called Will by his first name. It was also sweet of him to help out Hilary. The ending was perfect with Will leaving the place and Carlton getting upset that the light was turned off. I think it was a great choice not to have music. This was one of the best endings of a TV show.moreless
  • A good way to end a great show

    10
    This is how it ends: Hilary and Ashley move to New York, Carlton goes to Princeton, Geoffrey moves back to England to be with his son, Philip, Vivian, and Nicky move East and sell the house, and Uncle Phil helps Will find an apartment so he can stay and finish his education. It was a great way to end such a popular series. Will is one of those characters you really feel for and want for him to succeed. You can tell the family has grown closer in the past 6 years, and everyone has matured. Philip has come to accept Will like his own son, hence the phrase "You are my son." That was a bit of a tearjerker. He also really cares for Will and said that Will has really grown up, and has become a man ready to realize his potential. What an awesome episode!moreless
  • one of the best series finales I have come in contact with

    10
    Well, after 148 episodes and six seasons, a very popular show comes to end.



    Will has news to tell Uncle Philip and Aunt Vivian, and they have some news to: they are selling the house.



    So now Will has to make sure nobody knows he was lying and that he actually DOES have an apartment.



    So, the Drummonds {Diff'rent Strokes!} want the house, but Will makes them change their minds fast.



    Next, the Jeffersons. They don't want the house, but soon Will changes their minds. Oh no!



    This episode had everything. A lot of great humor and genuine emotion. The final scene where everyone says goodbye is one of the saddest things this show has done.



    Viva Fresh Prince!moreless
  • A emotional and good episode.

    9.7
    This episode was great and very emotional.



    The very emotional parts were, when Carlton and Will dance to "It's not unusual" by Tom Jones, when the Banks family leaves the house, and when Will leaves the house at the end of the episode.



    The funny parts in this episode were, the reason why the Jefferson's reason to move into the house a week after seeing it and at the end when Will turns the lights in the house off when Carlton was in the washroom.



    After 6 seasons and 148 episodes, this was a great way to end the show.



    I just wish that they made more episodes.moreless
  • Amazing. The best season finale i have ever seen in my life.

    10
    From the first time i watched the first episode of the Fresh Prince i did not know that it was going to end with such a sad ending like it had. It was definitly a tearjerker for most. If i could i woul give it an emmy or an award of anykind for being an amazing ending to an amazing show. Alot of laughs throughout all six seasons, especially from carlton just because of Alfonso's character. All the fat jokes never got old between Will Smith and James Avery. The way they showed all the kids progress in life was also a bg stand out in the show. Kind of sucks that the show is over but it never gets old. I must say i will definitly have to watch the DVDs over and over. Thank You for your time.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The Banks' house was finally sold to George and Louise Jefferson who also appeared in the episode Will Is From Mars...

    • About halfway through the episode, you see a scene with Will and Carlton talking about Will not having an apartment, then saying goodbyes. After they talk, Will grabs a CD, plays it, and it plays Carlton's favorite song, so Carlton does his signature dance, and this time, Will joins him by dancing just as oddly as Carlton.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Will: I love you, Uncle Phil, and I just don't wanna lose you, any of you.
      Phil: You're not gonna lose us. You are my son, Will. End of story. You just better be sure your butt is by a phone on Sunday.
      Will: Right.
      (Will and Phil hug)

    • (At the dinner table, Will's about to tell everyone that he didn't really have an apartment, but Carlton still covers for him)
      Philip: So Will, did you find a new place?
      Will: Uhhhh, well Uncle Phil......
      Carlton: Yeah, it's a great place!
      Vivian: How does it look?
      Carlton: Well, it's got ceiling-to-floor doors, and wall-to-wall floors!
      Will: Carlton's just playin' yall. There's something I have to.......
      Philip: So when do we get to see it?
      Will: You can't.
      Vivian: Why not?
      Carlton: Because, the windows are tinted. (being drowned out by the audience's laughter) You can't see inside of it.
      Will: Carlton, it's okay man, I can do this. You can't see my apartment...because I don't have one.

    • Will: Where ever and whenever...I got your back, C.
      Carlton: Wherever, whenever I've got your back...W. (moment's pause) That just doesn't sound right coming from me, does it?
      Will: It sounds perfect.

    • Vivian: Nicky, did you remember to go to the bathroom?
      Nicky: Of course.
      Hilary: Carlton, did you remember to go to the bathroom?
      Carlton: Of course....I'll be right back.

    • (Will turns off the lights)
      Carlton (in the bathroom): Hey! Who turned off the lights?! (comes down with his pants down) Where is everybody?!
      Will: I'm definitely gonna miss you C.

  • NOTES (7)

    • Sherman Hemsley (George Jefferson), Isabel Sanford (Louise Jefferson), and Marla Gibbs (Florence Johnston) crossover their roles from The Jeffersons .

    • Conrad Bain (Phillip Drummond) and Gary Coleman (Arnold Jackson) crossover their roles from Diff'rent Strokes .

    • This is a very short season for our beloved Jazz, who only appears five times throughout the course of this season.

    • Another interesting analysis of the episode guide is the series finale style season finales for each season begining since season 3. The producers seems to be prepared for cancellation (networks tend to pull shows without notifying producers until the end of the season taping i.e, Moesha, Wayans Brothers) by bringing a sense of closure at the end of each season. Such as the breakup of Will and Lisa's marriage, Will's move back to Philly, Will's High School Graduation, etc.

    • Will Smith wanted the series to end because his movie career was gaining momentum at the time and he wanted to focus on that. He was also going back into making albums as well with Big Willie Style in 1998 and the show would have been in his way with the time commitments required for taping.

      There are rumors that Smith was ready to call it quits earlier (going back to Philly) but with the show still being popular, he decided to continue for a little while longer to satisfy the fans.

    • We understand that there were some rumours that this show had a forced ending on its own series finale. The show should have ended after Will finishes one more year in his own college and then returns to Philadelphia. It turns out that Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and The Parkers both have almost the same type of forced endings on their own series finales.

    • Jazz is the longest recurring character on this show with a record of 44 episodes.
