When you think of classic sitcoms from the ’90s, Family Matters springs to mind. The show was a staple on ABC’s TGIF lineup and introduced audiences to one of the most memorable neighbors of all time — Steve Urkel. While his role was only intended to be minor, he was a hit with audiences, and the show more or less was retooled to make him the center.
Still, the other members of the Winslow family were important as well. Even though the “family” in Family Matters seemed to rotate out a bit (yes, Laura had a sister at one point) the show, which you can watch streaming, still included a fair amount of touching moments and very important lessons.
Produced by Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett, the show started airing in 1989 and wrapped up in 1998 on another network. Today, you can watch Family Matters online, as Family Matters is streaming. Here’s the best way to watch.
