    I really don't have much love for this episode. For once, I found a new character just annoying and that is Will's girlfriend. This episode really bugged me but it also did a good thing to all those teenagers who fall in love and the consequences that follow such as education drops.



    The thing I didn't like was the dialogue. It seemed sorta dull and certain parts just tended to drag on. I prefer the Will who just makes messes at home instead of one who falls in love. Kayla's character for some reason did not interest me like other characters such as Will's mum or Phil's mum.moreless

    This was a good episode but I thought it dragged a bit. Maybe its because i am used to tv shows with multiple story lines but I thought this was lacking a bit until the end. This is a small part but at the start when you see Will and Carlton watching the tv show together. It's something you would not happen at the pilot. You see how Will influence on women. It's not just on random girls but smart ones as well. Will seems to actually enjoy the realtionship with her. The part that made this better is when you find out something new about Viv. It very surprising and something I won't tell you. You will have to watch the episode for that one.moreless

  • Love at first fight

    8.0
    An episode of The Fresh Prince that finally shows how Will Smith's annoying behavior can be a distraction to women instead of the show's star just being their soul mate, like they usually write him to be. It featured some serious overtones with Vivian sharing her past to the girl, but was also heavy on the comedic elements, with such jabs as Will saying, "I didn't know Aunt Viv used to clean hotel rooms. How come she never clean my room?"



    This was a good episode of The Fresh Prince, and even had a great Yo Momma! battle that you hopefully were not drinking milk during.moreless
  • Love At First Fight

    8.5
    Yet another brilliantly scripted Fresh Prince episode, Love at First Fight has one disadvantage: the Shakespeare references, especially since none of the characters seem to think his plays were boring like so many people, eg/me, believe. Personally I think Shakespeare’s plays are confusing, boring and irrelevant but was forced to red it in school.



    Anyway, the episode itself was very funny especially the insult war between Kayla and Will, ending the scene in an unexpected and unbelievable and hilarious way.



    Overall, this episode is a very entertaining instalment to the Fresh Prince series as it also has Will needing to mature a little to realise what Kayla needs but neither of them want.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Kayla: You don't get it, I have four older sisters, all of them were mommas before they were 18, none of them finished high school. Everyones waitin for Kayla I'm the last chance for this family, and you have no idea how that feels.
      Vivian: Oh I know how that feels. And I know what it's like to clean hotels in the morning and go to school at night, just to get a diploma I never got.
      Will: Aunt Viv, you dropped out of high school?
      Vivian: It's not something I'm proud of, but I did. My whole family was counting on me too, and I couldn't take the pressure. Ran off with some boy and quit school. By the time I realized I made a mistake it was too late: I was left with no education and nothing I was qualified to do. It took me forever to get back. And honey, if you're wondering why I fit in so well here, it's because I've worked damn hard and I know I deserve it. The problem is that you don't know you deserve it.

    • Vivian: That bad grade could mean the difference between Dr. Kayala Samuels who runs a hospital, or just Kayala Samuels who cleans it.

    • Vivian: Will, if you get a bad grade, we ground you and make sure you bring your grade back up. For Kayala, if she gets a bad grade, she could lose her scholarship and there's no second chance.

    • (speaking to Carlton about women)
      Will: Age don't matter. They could be 17, 21, 33...all in the same grade.
