Robo-Nerd (#3.7)
24 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode Family Matters goes all the way into science fiction and presents us a classic story of an artificial life that falls in love in a very Frankenstein kind of way.

I really love how they made this Robot, it really looks so much alike with Urkel! As well as his little dancing moves, putting oil on himself and repeating the voices of the whole Winslow family.

And it has the absolutely hilarious moment when Eddie and Waldo worry they will be replaced by machines now that robots are chasing girls! The ending at Steve's basement does a great job at parodying a scifi creepiness. All in all a very good episode
