    SWFA: A Cinematic Journey…… Hmmmm…. Funny how it’s the same exact title as Chapter 1 of the Bonus Features on the DVD. How much should we bet that it’s an edited down version to fit into the ABC schedule??

    I’m still disappointed that Vel Johnson isn’t playing Carl Winslow. Especially since Family Matters is established as being in the same universe as BMW (via Urkle visiting BMW).
