Episode Summary

Lisa humiliates Will by knocking out a guy with her self-defense moves. Will sets out to prove he is The Man.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • what a great episode indeed!

    Will is truly put to test in this episode and in a hilarious manner. I love everything that happens throughout the episode. I loved the scenarios that he places himself in to prove his man-iness to Lisa. It was definitely intelligent, witty and a great acted episode. Entertainment everywhere
  • Will tries to be more manly

    The realtionship of Will and Lisa has started and this time it hits a snag. I think this episode would've been better if it followed the episode where Will first meets Lisa. Speaking of Lisa, I liked how she beat up the guy. Will's reaction was the typical reaction you would expect from a guy. Will trying to learn to be more manly from Mr. Yoshi and then Phillp was entertaining. The fact that the guy Will beat up was an interesting twist. I think it was better. Another thing I liked about this episode was not seeing Will or Lisa actually bowl. Maybe it's just me but I don't like when on TV shows with bowling the shot is from something else. Another good part is how happy everyone was when after Will kissed Lisa. While this could've been better and the episode in better order, it was a worthwhile episode.moreless
  • Being a Man

    This is another favorate episode of mine. It's pritty much a lesson in what being a true man is.

    Will as we see feels his mascilenity is threaten, which is a common thing according to psychology on the human ego it's like a foundation of chracter but when one of the supports gets shaken the whole foundation will collapse. And when people feel that way while dating a significant other they form a fear that the person will preceve them wrongly then leave them.

    This episode is funny from begining to end, from that beginging part where Will is confronting a jerk only to get hit really hard and fall down in the most styalistic way when he is slowing going down he puts up a chair, sits on it and then falls down, that was hillarious. Then when Lisa takes the jerk out he then says a clever hillarous quote. Lisa: Will I ment to tell you that I...

    Will: Your what a Power Ranger?!

    Or even his encounter with the late great Pat Morita whom play the Mr. Myogi like role again (he just does that so well) and tells Will a phylosophical metaphoric story that is part of the lesson of the episode as well as irony for what is about to come. However the best part was the sheme Will conducts where he would hire a rent a thug to play the usual good and evil confrontation, where Will will win. Unfortunately the robber robing the Peacock is real, and that's where the hilarity kicks in when Will mistakenly thinks it's a fake thug and he actually beats up the real robber. Comic Gold.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • After the scuffle in the bowling alley, Will and Lisa have this exchange:

      Lisa: Will, I've been meaning to tell you that I'm a
      Will: A what!? A Power Ranger!?

      It is interesting to note that in the original pilot episode of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, the main characters actually fought off a few bullies in a bowling alley. The conflicts in both episodes started by a random male hitting on a female character (In Fresh Prince, Lisa; in Power Rangers, Kimberly). Another interesting fact is that the role of Trini, the Yellow Ranger, was played by Audrey DuBois, who bore a similar resemblance to Nia Long.
