Revenge of the Nerd (#8.14)
10 November 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The sorority Laura is about to join hold a geek party where they invite the nerdiest guy and announce the inner who happens to be the worst one. But Laura comes on time and warns the guys.

Carl tries to be friends with the neighbor in order to be a positive example to the kids. He ends up finding out that he is missing his ex wife.

The geek party had some funny moments, but not funny enough. And really the title is misleading. There is no revenge but Urkel's usual preachy monologue on how to be a better person.

The Carl story made me cringe as well. Apparently wanting to have a wife who works is a mistake. Even though I would say couples who want the same kind of family structure are more likely to be happy than the ones who just give in
