The most ridiculous moment of FAMILY MATTERS
#71
I can't believe that this show isn't on DVD. If Full House can get it's entire series on DVD, I see no reason that this can't also.

What I love is that even though the stories became increasingly bizzarre and moronic, it still included every sitcom cliche within every episode. It's as if they were simply told to come up with as many ideas as possible for Carl to get mad at Steve but ultimately forgive him in the end, and they didn't weed out a single idea.

Doesn't this episode also have Dwayne T. Robinson?

I think I'm going to have to add this to my Tivo. This stuff is nostalgia gold.

Not according to imdb, but there was a Dwayne T. Robinson-like character who was Carl's police chief. In fact if memory serves, the bomb was intended for that guy.

I already posted this clip, but really guys. For those of you unfamiliar with the bizarre parts of this show, this is it. This is all you need to see.

I have to admit I smiled a bit at:

"You have his soul? So you're not evil anymore?"
"Oh, I'm still evil. But now I feel guilty about it."

Clearly the inspration for Angel.

Evil Puppet: Don't I look pretty with a human soul?
Audience: WOOOOOOOOOOO!

Did they say that just because it said the word pretty? What the hell?! That was almost as good as Carl man-handling puppets or Urkel spewing green ramen from his eyeballs.

Actually, I was wondering why the audience hoots and hollers when Steve turns out to be evil at the end.

There was also the episode where Carl had to dress as a woman to...attract criminals? So Harriett had to teach him "how a real woman walks" and it was so successful he caught three bad guys.

I may be remembering this wrong.

Do the Urkel
The Return of Steevil
Steve, Richie, and 3-J take on the gangs of Chicago

I think Family Matters had more "woo"s per minute than any other sitcom.

Carl playing with Carlsbad
Steve loses his mind, dives through window
More of Bruce Lee Steve
Annoying recurring character, Weasel
For all you guitar players out there

There was also an episode where Steve had a long distance romantic relationship with a super horny female con, but instead of sending her his picture, he sent her Carl's. When she got out of prison, she came to Carl's house, hilarity did it's best to ensue.

Paradoxically, a combination of "too much" and "not enough."

Physicists are still trying to work that one out.

So I'm watching this episode that I tivoed, and I totally forgot Steve's crazy sex euphamisms.

When Judie Winslow became a porn star... oh wait that wasn't on the show that was in real life.

And everyone here has forgot about the best character on that show... Grandmama.

I still watch Full House, Family Matters, Step by Step and Boy Meets World during the morning/afternoon on ABC Family. TGIF was one of the best parts of being a kid in the '90s.

Great, now I have the TGIF song stuck in my head.... wasn't it something like

"It's Friday Night, and the moon is bright, gonna have some fun, show you how it's done T.G.I.F.!"?

Did all this shit really happen on that show? I never watched it, so I'm totally unfamiliar with everything that isn't an Urkel joke. Somehow, I feel as though I may have missed the best show ever.

Yes. Urkel really did clone himself, build a robot, shrink himself and Carl and invent a time machine.

T.G.I.F was the thing when you're were 12 and allowed to stay up at 10:00 instead of 9:00.

Although the best was when they had their annual cartoon preview show in the fall where really nothing would get shown but you still thought it was the greatest thing ever.

By the time "Family Matters," "Boy Meets World," and "Step By Step" were going full steam my T.G.I.F. days were behind me.

I'm old school. I remember when T.G.I.F. was early "Full House," "Mr. Belvedere," "Just the 10 of us," and my personal favorite "Perfect Strangers." That's what T.G.I.F. was all about. Back when it was pure and about quality comedic broadcasting.

I wouldn't be caught dead hanging with Mr. Cooper.

I was that age where I remember both eras. The latter era needed more Uecker.

If you ask me, the comedy duo of Uecker and Hewett made Abbott and Costello look like a couple Nazi sympathizers.

I was about to make an almost identical post before I read yours.

Perfect Strangers on Friday made my week.

Few things in this world are funnier than Larry and Balki replacing a showerhead.

Don't believe me? Judge for yourself.

I've watched seven episodes since I added this to the Tivo list, and already there have been two instances of both Eddie and Steve singing I'm Too Sexy.

I'm waiting for the episode where Eddie gets Steve to cheat on a test for him. Hilarity ensues when they make codes for each answer, such as a cough, a stomp of the foot, etc. Funny stuff. Oh wait, this is a serious issue, cue in the learning-a-valuable-lesson sound clip.

Perfect Strangers WAS TGIF as far as I am concerned. Everything spawned from there, including Family Matters.

You know whats hilarious, Bronson Pinchot is actually a pretty decent actor. The one thing I always remembered about Bev Hills Cop was his "Serj" character. In the behind the scenes piece on DVD, bronson or someone talked about how he was just in this small throwaway role as the first to greet axel foley, but Bronson being the genius that he was decided to put on the Serj accent and he caused eddie to burst into laughter stopping the take. From that point on, Serj was given more lines and Balki was born...

Of course, its actors who play characters like Balki that are actually yale graduates and experts in greek sculpture (check Pinchot's IMDB site, its all true)

Another thing I liked about 'da Strangers was there late 80s penthouse reject girlfrends. What did that one milfy chick see in cousin larry!? He was so schlubby.

I like to think she saw a good heart in Larry. Isn't that enough?

Ya know who I always liked? Balki's asshole boss Mr. Gorpley:



That guy was great. The dude who played him is named Sam Anderson. Good actor. Loved seeing him pop up as the leader of The White Boys in I COME IN PEACE. He shows up on "Lost" every now and again.

Wow, that guy looks like the network version of Ronny Cox.
