Let’s Dance: The Most Iconic TV Prom Episodes
Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Most of the time, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was a light, fun show about a boy who gets transported to a world of exorbitant wealth. Every once in a while, though, the show would get serious about what this clash might mean. This happens when Will’s cousin Carlton accidentally takes speed from Will’s locker, not knowing what it is.
As the prom unfolds, it becomes clear that something is wrong with Carlton. Eventually, he faints and ends up in the hospital. This forces Will to reckon with the adverse impact of his own recklessness in compelling ways. It’s a dramatic episode, but one that works.
