Citizen's Court (#3.6)
11 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I like to see TV shows having episodes regarding giving more respect to other living beings. This is one f those episodes. Often when an animal is hurt/killed people ignore it because it is "just an animal", Family Matters did it even greater by making the killed animal be of the "lower" kind: a bug! Carl really irked me with his lack of sensitivity, and I was absolutely rooting for Urkel to get the apology he deserved for losing his beloved friend, Pablo.

I also liked the setting of making it a court show. It was very funny and I liked all the characters giving their testimonies. And of course the finale went just the way it should!
