HOW URKEL RUINED/SAVED FAMILY MATTERS
Steve Urkel is a character you either love or hate... and I was firmly in the middle somewhere.share
Urkel revitalized Family Matters but it became a show centered around him.
I personally preferred the show when it was about Carl and Harriette with Steve somewhere in the background or in a supporting role.
Earlier Family Matters is often forgotten in the larger spectrum of the show.
The more zany and outlandish parts of the show are what's remembered.
Urkel's shrink ray, the transformation machine, the ventriloquist dummy.
