RIP James Avery (aka The Shredder / Uncle Phil)

I've been rewatching Fresh Prince of Bel-air because of the sad news, and remembering how awesome James Avery was. I didn't remember them replacing Vivian in season 4 because I was just a kid when I watched it first, that was pretty jarring, but from what I read on wikipedia it seemed like there was some trouble between actors and stuff. The new Viv seems really stiff and one dimensional IMO. Anyway... yeah, really sad about Uncle Phil. He was always consistently funny but kept up his character as a pretty stern father figure.
