The Brother Who Came to Dinner (#8.23)
12 November 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Frank is informed by Commissioner Geiss that his estranged brother is forging check. At the same time Frank Winslow also arrives at his house and Carl has to face the conversation with him and make a decision whether to arrest him or not.

Eddie and Urkel break Laura's laptop and go to a competition to win money to buy her a new one.

I already wasn't expecting to see a good episode. But this one was.Especially the Carl and his brother story. It is not very funny and dramatic stories in sitcoms are not usually very good. There are some things which make no sense, and are wrapped up too fast based on sitcoms short running time. But I like the idea and it was great acting by everyone. Including Dick O'Neil who was the funnest part of it
