You fist-love black people?
I went to see tom jones 2 years ago and I have to admit...I did the carlton dance
Got to love Carlton...
Huzzah for the Carlton Dance!!
That was pure genius incarnate.
Fisting is a bannable offense.
I loved both shows as they contributed to African American culture. We came a long way in television.
Evolution of African American on TV
Fred Sanford-Junkyard Owner
Goerge Jefferson-Owner of a chain of dry cleaners
Philip Banks-Lawyer and eventually Judge
Great strides in television.Did I miss anyone?
Don't be jealous.
I guess ****ehammer just got himself a warning, then.
What was your original image of blacks before Cosby?
I was born in the 80's and grew up watching TV mostly in the early 90's, so I was brought up watching Fresh Prince a lot more, so I'm more familiar with the show. Cosby Show on the other hand, I still give mucho props to. I've seen many episodes, but it's different trying to catch up to an older show that you didn't get a chance to watch while it was at its peak.
He used to be my favorite.
I freakin' love:
I'm not a nice person
I mean I'd smack the **** out you twice dog and that's before I start
I've lost my mind
And I'm about to make you lose yours too from far away one time
I too suffered from eighties deprivation. So I have a strong connection to Fresh Prince(so many memories...) but over the years I really started to enjoy the lovable stylings of Mr. Cosby.
One of the best Fresh Prince episodes of all-time.
That's the way, uh huh, uh huh, I like it.
Urkel was ALWAYS painful to watch. Carlton was funny, though.
Does this count as a great black sitcom that everyone grew up with?
I love orange soda.
That's one that one of us 90's kids love/appreciate.
I do, I do, I dooooo-oooo!
It improved the image of blacks in general. There weren't many black doctors/lawyers on tv or media at the time.
It was made for kids. Calm da **** down brotha
That show took us back 30 years to the days of JJ Jimmy Walker.
Pre-Vivian switch Fresh Prince was great.
