Season 1 lacks somewhere in storytelling and writing. Sometimes it's just annoying that almost every episode is repeating and has the same writing style. Will makes something wrong and at the end Unclie Phil tells him something about it and we all learn from that... But there are some real highlights in this season. A thing that makes this season far better from other is that it's just hilarious. Fun - classic episodes!

The writers wanted to make FPOBA more serious and added a bit of continuity in this season (the Will & Lisa story). The jokes got a bit lower in this season and there are some really poor episodes (Fresh Prince: The Movie for example). But overall an OK and fun season.

Will became showrunner with this season going back to the roots what means: More comedy, less drama. The jokes are fresh again making the last season a really hilarious one
