Laura the whora?
3 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, so the holiday episodes of Family Matters are my absolute favorite but of them all this is my least favorite. I really enjoyed the storyline between Steve and Carl. The relationship between those two has always been a very important part of the series. It's a bit overdone and contrived, however, in this episode but still it's good nonetheless. What I really disliked about this episode is how Laura behaves. First of all, let me state that I've never been a fan of the 'Stefan' plots. The entire idea is completely idiotic and the point in which the show jumped the shark. But Laura's behavior with him and Curtis is what bugs me the most. Throughout the entire show she has been a stand-up girl teaching us viewers important lessons and now she's depicted as a two-timer? Literally she's making out with one guy then pushing him out the door to make out with another! It served to offer up an important lesson, but it was done horribly. She ends up getting to keep the guy she really wants when she should've ended up alone. Altogether a bad episode. I give it a four out of ten.
