Episode Summary

EDIT
Will hits it off with the full-figured friend named Dee-Dee, but her size keeps him from asking her to the dance. Though they both have a lot in common as soon as his friends start teasing him he takes the shallow way out. When he sees her at the dance with another guy does he see more clearly that it's what's on the inside that counts more than the outside?moreless

  • An episode morale that now sickens me

    5.0
    Okay... Everyone knows the morale "Don't judge a book by its cover' Its being so overdone in TV Shows. Aside from that, this episode also didn't deliver well. I thought it had few laughs and too much other things going on. I found the fat girl (sorry the name I forgot) wasn't really interesting or funny or much of anything I found her quite pale in characteristics and just plain awkward when she and Will were on screen.



    IMO, not a must see episodemoreless
  • Will makes a new friend

    8.0
    This was an enjoyable episode where both parts were good and were actually connected a little bit. A common happening theme in this series is Phillp's back. Kind of like Carl from Family Matters. The storyline with his back was funny. I liked how he got caught up the home shopping network. It's something that would not happen in season one. I also liked Will's storyline. Before Will has always choice in women has been in a particular size. I liked he formed a connection with Dee-Dee. Even though Queen Latisha was already in the series, her character was very likeable. The only part I didn't like was she was not in future episodes. I liked the ending when everyone was watching the TV in Phillp's and Viv's room.moreless

    "I'll be the one shouting my number to Magic Johnson!" Oh how that meant something so different in this episode than it would mean now.



    This was a solid older episode of Fresh Prince, but I prefer Queen Latifah in her other role on the show as the uptight actress and not as the quirky fat girl. The Fresh Prince relied too much on these moral issues and honestly, while it is still a problem that plagues a lot of our society, it is not one that has changed much. Most people still would not date a fat girl like her.



    But a few good laughs here.moreless
  • I really didn't like this episode that much.

    6.8
    In this episode of the Fresh Prince of Bel-air Will goes on a blind date. The only problem he has with the girl is that she was fat.



    I really didn't like this episode that much. The only good part in it was when he ran out the door because of everything that has happened to him when he went on a Blind Date before.



    I really didn't like this episode that much. It had a few funny parts but nonthing really that funny. The best part was in the beggining where they first show her. I would reccomend you watch some different episodes in the series. If you want to watch this episode it appears on the season 2 DVD.moreless
