Movie Reviews

A great show!
Arnold Jackson | Detroit | 04/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I believe this show should definitely be released on DVD. There is a Simpson's, Seinfeld, and Full House DVD so why not a Family Matters one! This is absurd! People shouldn't have to vote for a Family Matters DVD because that's ridiculous. Something needs to be done! RELEASE THIS DVD!"

"Finally!!! How many days have gone by while fans eagerly waited for the release of this classic family sitcom on DVD?! Now fans who have waited patiently, like myself and my friends, will be able to own the complete first season of the Winslow's and their quirky neighbor Steve Urkle in Family Matters. The 3-disc set will contain the following 22 episodes originally airing from 1989-1990:

The Mama Who Came To Dinner
Two-Income Family
Short Story
Rachel's First Date
Straight A's
Baseball Blues
Body Damage
Mr. Badwrench
False Arrest
The Quilt
Laura's First Date (Steve Urkle's Proper Introduction!!!)
Man's Best Friend
Baker's Dozen
The Big Reunion
The Party
The Big Fix
Sitting Pretty
In A Jam
The Candidate
Bowl Me Over
Rock Video

No news yet on any special features and some are wary of expecting any but just being able to own these episodes on a proper set should be more than enough to please fans. Though, any exec's out there with a say in the matter should be aware of how much us fans who have waited so long would appreciate a little something extra, a blooper reel would be great, even some sort of featurette or promotional material if not a commentary or two, just throwing that out there.

Anybody growing up or alive in the 90's knows the name Steve Urkle. Urkle became a household name and now fans can revisit, and newcomer's can finally be introduced to, the man who did do that. Though Steve Urkle easily became a star the show wasn't only great because of him, (in fact Urkle wasn't written in until the 12th episode but became so popular they made him a regular and fit him into some earlier episodes not yet aired), but it was also great because of Carl, Harriette, Laura, Eddie and the entire Winslow family and how audiences related to them and the issues they dealt with, which is an even rarer thing this day and age. I still remember the way Carl would drag out "Harr-i-ette" or how Steve would be told "go home Steve" only to then respond "I don't have to take this, I'm going home." This show is classic American sticom at it's finest and they just can't make them like this anymore. I don't know if it's because the world has changed or if they just don't know how to capture the innocence, comedy and family values the way sitcoms once used to. This show in particular had great stories that at their core taught us family does matter and it still does just as much if not more so today.

2010 is a great year for the 'Most Wanted TV Series on DVD' crowd, shows like Daria and Family Matters that fans have waited for patiently for so many years are finally getting released. It looks like all the online petitions and fans showing desire to purchase these great series has finally paid off. I have to give this show 5 stars and don't see any reason that this set won't deserve five stars, especially for fans who have waited so long for this "most wanted on DVD" series. Everybody get out there and buy this, it's the bigger love of the family!

Rather than further clutter up the review page I've included episode summaries in my comments section for those interested. Thanks for your time."

"I started watching Family Matters this past summer and every time I have a break from school I watch it! I love the show so much and it needs to come out on DVD. This is a show that actually deserves to be out on DVD."
