A Pirate's Life for Me (#8.24)
12 November 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

And another season finale! We are about to enter the very last season of Family Matters.

Carl who dreams of sea exploration gets his wish fulfilled by Steve who uses his machine to get them to the past and they end up on a pirate ship.

I am usually not a fan of such story lines, but it was pretty good

Great decoration, setting and costumes

A lot of action

And it is funny

so lets now see how the last season will turn out.
