The Ultimate ’90s Nerd Battle

Yes, just yes.

This is my favorite piece of art I’ve seen in a long while, as it represents my favorite era of sitcom TV with two of its best shows. The showdown between uber nerds Screech and Urkel would be legendary, though I think with his science, Steven Q. would come out on top.

It took me a minute to remember that there was actually an Urkel bot on Family Matters. Urkel built it and it fell in love with Laura like him and went crazy and he had to kill it. Pretty intense for an episode of Family Matters. But that show was full of wacky stuff like that, like when Steven invented a “cool machine” that transformed him into the suave “Stephan Urquel.” Then he invented a cloning machine, which made a copy of himself that was permanently transformed into Stephan, then he invented a teleporter that transported everyone to France, and Stephan stayed there to be a model. Good lord, how is all this stuff ingrained in my brain to this degree?
