The show is quite entertaining, but also has problems.Both Carlton (the middle child son) and the Butler are played kind of wooden and unreal. The butler could because I was comparing him with Niles the butler in "The nanny", which could be too high a standard.Will Smith gets increasingly annoying in the first three seasons, I mean the kid becomes more and more selfish and obnoxious. Don't get me wrong he is entertaining and fun to watch, but it is hard to like that kind of person.To think of it most characters Will Smith plays (in bad boy, independence day, men in black, I robot) are kind of the same, an obnoxious narcissist fall in love with himself. Maybe he is just playing himself, even the character's name is the same.From the fourth season he is starting to get serious about his life and looking more like a real person with real problems.The bright spots are the farther (Philip Banks, played by James Avery) who plays a from rags to riches black lawyer quite convincingly and gives this show a lot of credibility. And the youngest daughter (Ashley Banks) who is cute and quite lovable. Hilary (the oldest daughter), who is also a bit unreal but not as much as Carlton and the Butler, could be quite funny in some occasions.Overall the show is good pastime.
