Year: 1990-1996
Cultural Impact: Fresh Prince still re-runs its six seasons on television to this day.
What Will's Doing: Cementing his inevitable superstardom. Will basically plays himself, transplanted from Philly to Beverly Hills where he rocks the loudest patterns ever on cable television, drops an unbeatable array of pick-up lines, and navigates the intricacies of young adulthood with a large surplus of likability. But despite its frenetic comedy, the show’s lasting power lies in its deep emotional core—exemplified by the titanic, semi-improvised "How come he don’t want me, man" scene.
