Guantánamo Bay Prisoners Are Obsessed With The ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’

The Guantánamo Bay detention camp is probably the most famous prison in the world.

Also known as GTMO, the detention-and-interrogation facility houses prisoners, many of whom are considered connected to the al-Qaida terrorist group, captured during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

It's all very hush-hush even a decade since it's establishment. In other words, we still don't know about the daily happenings down there.

One thing we do know about what's going in GTMO? The prisoners are totally obsessed with the classic '90s sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." Yep, that's right. The show that launched the career of Will Smith and is considered the epitome of 1990's nostalgia is a hit amongst the prisoners.

It seems that prisoners are encouraged to enjoy a wide variety of media from the camp library – guards believe it helps ease tension – and, as of late, the show has spread like wild fire. (Previous hits with detainees include "The Cosby Show" and the Harry Potter books.)

Honestly, we're kind of surprised that captured terrorists would have such similar taste as us. We guess it just goes to show that quality media transcends boundaries.

If they get into "Arrested Development" next, we're pretty sure world peace isn't too far away.
