Rock Video (#1.22)
6 November 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What a disappointment for a season finale! I think it was the worst episode so far.

All episodes on Family Matters have a sort of "lesson to learn", but they are mixed with humor. In this episode humor was really lacking. Nothing about this video story was funny at all. Absolutely nothing, maybe just grandma rocking, but this isn't enough. The video they made at the end was pretty sad as well

The tax story was in a way funny, but it was too small. So a little joke like this cannot save the whole episode.

And I don't know why they keep on doing the "Did I do it" thing with Urkel. Who ever said that it was funny?
