A spinoff of the popular ABC sitcom, Perfect Strangers about a black Chicago family, the Winslows and their family matters, hence the show's name. In later seasons the central character was Stephen Q. Urkel, the next door neighbor and nerd who forever had a crush on Laura Winslow. His character was brilliant but socially inept and clumsey. The Urkel character appeared in the first season as a one time role but reappeared as a main character after his huge popularity. In the show's last episode (due to its cancellation), Steve was engaged to Laura but disappeared into outter space on a NASA mission. It is not known wheather he and Laura married or not.
Family Matters was a nice family sitcom with no vices and one of the few clean shows on television.
