The idea that NBC sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, starring Will Smith, isn’t set in the wealthy neighborhood of Los Angeles, but the actually the afterlife, initially seems preposterous. However dig a little deeper and you’ll see there are nearly a dozen reasons why such an outlandish theory could make perfect sense. But be warned, you may never look at this feel-good 1990s comedy the same again.

10. Smith was killed in a brawl

The whole theory begins with the “one little fight” that the titular character refers to in the show’s infectious theme tune. Could it have turned out to be a fatal one? Some viewers believe that Smith was sent to the afterlife after being stabbed or shot during the scuffle.

Indeed Smith claims that his mother sent him from his West Philadelphia home to his aunt and uncle’s house in Bel-Air, Los Angeles, to save him from a life on the streets. But the character, essentially a fictionalized version of the real larger-than-life Smith, may be unaware that it is already too late. Sure this is a dark theory, but it’s one which surprisingly holds some weight.
