  • Good episode.

    This was a refreshing episode with some much needed edge to it. I like the fact that it was much more violent and also very much an episode where it was about justice. The best parts was when Steve posed as a street thug and tried to get the criminals to confess to their crimes. I also liked when the criminals got caught and were put in jail. The one thing I didn't like was the over-blown comedy angle of the episode. It would have been better had it been more serious. Overall, it was a very good episode and also very entertaining. Thank you.
  • A gang called "the dragons" Vandalizes Rachel's Place and ambush Eddie so Carl and Lt. Murtah wire steve(who's dressed as a gangster) and try to get the "Dragons to confess that they did it.

    This is one of those serious episodes about gang violence yet it had alot of funny moments. This is probably the first time Iv'e seen steve show alot of guts yet witty and smart at the same time in this kind of situation. To me the gangster look should've been an alter ego of him because he can really pull it off as a tough guy especially the part when he says he shot the doc as soon as he was born. XD Classic. I encourage alot of family matters fans or other fans that didn't get to see it must watch this episode. Its good.
  • My favorite episode

    When the gang called the dragons come into Rachel's place, everyone gets excited when Carl comes in and saves everyone. Later, the Dragons trash the place, and Carl has Steve wired to go into the Dragons' hideout and record what they say by being wired. Carl and Murtagh cuff themselves together, and when Steve calls them in, they must get the Dragons while cuffed together. Hilarious moments in this episode, as well as some just plain great scenes to watch in this awesome episode of Family Matters.This episode is my personal favorite episode, and is worth watching over and over again.
  • The Dragons, a local gang, trashes Rachel's Place and ambushes Eddie. Steve courageously dons a wire to get the necessary evidence to put them all away. His reward? A sandwich named after him at Rachel's Place.

    When Eddie walks into a trashed Rachel's Place after having been beat up by The Dragons, tears always come to my eyes. It touched me how the family all rushed to him and how angry Carl was after Harriet had taken Eddie home. I admire Steve's courage and willingness to put his life on the line to get the needed evidence against the gang. The scene where he was posing as a potential gang member was hilarious, and when Lt. Mirtaugh and Carl busted in a arrested everyone while still handcuffed together was hilarious. However, I can't help but point out that in real life, The Dragons most likely would've probably shot Steve when he came bursting through thier door like he did. Guns probably would've been used before then, too, or at least the threat of them. But I am glad that another route was taken with that.
