Product Description

Family Matters: The Complete Second Season

Amazon.com

Only the most die-hard '90s TV nostalgians will remember (or care) that one of that decade's most popular shows was a spinoff. The middle-class African-American Winslow clan, who were settled so comfortably in the Chicago suburbs, sprang from ABC's sister hit Perfect Strangers and occupied the same agreeably bland primetime landscape, practically defining its cultural era. But by a margin as tall as the Sears Tower, Family Matters will forever be distinguished as the property of Steve Urkel, the whiny-voiced, high-water-pants-and-suspender-wearing über-nerd who lived next door. Urkel made the Winslows' life delightfully fraught with situational comedy that was the very definition of sitcom humor in the 1990s. The show is still fondly regarded by nearly everyone who tuned in and equally reviled by those who loudly tuned out its paper-thin stories of mild family discord and rapprochement. Probably the only person in the world who doesn't fall in either the love it or hate it camp is Jaleel White, the gangly young boy (and later buff mature grownup) who played Urkel for all nine seasons and will never, ever be identified as anything but. White as Urkel was introduced innocuously enough in the middle of season one, and he caused such a sensation with fans of the new show that he was added as the virtual star starting in season two. For that reason alone, this three-disc set of all 25 second-season episodes (with no bonus features whatsoever) will be a must-have for Family Matters aficionados. Urkel not only took over the series, he became a wildly iconic pop-culture figure who endures to this day. Every episode was essentially built around the cartoonishly goofy kid, even though the series was supposed to be about the growing pains of life in the Winslow household. The rest of the cast nevertheless lent strong support, and it's a credit that they all stuck with it as foils to the shenanigans of White's creepy creation. Reginald VelJohnson and JoMarie Payton are good anchors as patient parents Carl and Harriette, with Rosetta LeNoire adding sass as Carl's mother and Telma Hopkins pepping up the background as Harriette's single live-in sister. Kellie Shanygne Williams as the teenage Laura Winslow and object of Urkel's unrequited crush is the ostensible reason he keeps hanging around. But his run-ins with the Winslows encompass a range of sitcom tomfoolery, from a showdown with the school bully to a Wild West dream sequence with Urkel as nerdy cowpoke gunning for Sheriff Winslow (Carl and Urkel being at odds seemed to be the backbone of most scripts). In addition to his broad-with-a-capital-B slapstick physicality, Urkel also brought a ringer to the TV catchphrase hall of fame. His innocently pip-squeaked "Did I do that?" can be heard at least once every episode and ranks with "Eat my shorts" (Bart Simpson), "Thank you very much" (Latka Gravas), and "Heyyyy!" (the Fonz) in the annals of TV character memes. School screwups, pubescent kids' issues, innocuous adult problems, and getting along in an unconditionally loving family were the primary plot devices that drove Family Matters into America's consciousness. But it was Steve Urkel who drove the show to its huge ratings heights and keeps it a sentimental favorite for those who could bear him in his heyday and who can still hear the hilarity in every "Did I do that?" --Ted Fry

Release all the seasons for Family Matters. I was born in the 80's and grew up watching this show. Everyone that sees this, review this product and advertise it! I remember the day I got the e-mail from Amazon saying that season 1 was available. I was extremely excited, and bought it! I love this show. It's better than anything out right now.

I was so excited to finally see Family Matters on DVD. Today, there are so many shows that I don't feel comfortable watching with my children, however, this is not one of them.

I'm prayerful that additional season will be released for us to enjoy soon.

I bought all eight seasons of Full House and the first season of Family Matters. This show desereves a full series release along with Step by Step.There is a market for this out there people. Alot of us grew up watching this show and would love to relive it on dvd. Could use the rest of the Perfect Strangers series too!

This is a good fun show and I hope they continue to release more of it on DVD, as well as Step By Step. The second season was a good balance of the original family stuff with Urkel. Around the fourth season I think the balance began to shift much more towards Urkel taking over, but at this early point it manages to use his character without losing the other good elements. Most shows hit some sort of creative high point the second season and this one is probably no exception-after a first season to experiment, the writers are usually able to perfect the format. So, in summary, I hope this is released, as I know lots of us love to re-live our lost youth and there's no way better than putting out the complete Miller-Boyett TGIF lineup from ABC on DVD.

I really don't understand why they have not released the second season yet. This was a great sitcom and it just kept getting better as the seasons went on. I'm very disapointed that they are taking so long to get these season sets out on dvd. No more delays, please give us fans what we want.

Wow, they really decided to promote the series as "The Steve Urkel Show"...
I've always called the show, Urkel ever since I was a kid. I'll say, "Urkel's on." when the show starts. Everybody knows what show you mean. True, he was only in a few episodes of the first season, but when people think Family Matters, Urkel is the first thing that comes to mind.
