Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Season two of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air begins as transplanted South Philly homeboy Will Smith (played by Will Smith!) experiences his first California earthquake. It happens on the same night that Will's wealthy Bel-Air relatives, the Bankses, are to attend the Peoples' Choice Awards. While our hero's Uncle Philip (James Avery) and Aunt Vivian (Janet Hubert-Whitten) are stuck in Philip's office, and as Geoffrey the butler (Joseph Marcell) rapidly loses his patience with Will's cousins Carlton (Alfonso Ribeiro), Hilary (Karyn Parsons) and Ashley (Tatyana M. Ali) while they're all enclosed in the same car, Will himself is trapped in the Bankses' basement with his current "dream girl" Kathleen (Tisha Campbell)--who, unfortunately, is a textbook example of the old adage "Beauty is Only Skin Deep".
