Miss the real Fresh Prince

If you are watching to bring back the iconic Fresh Prince feel and good vibes, with at times real and serious content without the language, you’ll not get it. Too politically charged and so much language. After the last two years of such violence and hostility in our country, it would be nice to have something that brings us together, not divide. I subscribed to Peacock just for this show. I will look to unsubscribe.
