I grew up watching Full House (admittedly, I called it “the girls show”) and even when it is on Nick at Nite, I cannot help but stop flipping through the channels and catching up on an old episode.
As a child of the 80s/90s, it’s the perfect piece of nostalgia. The entire set is pretty much a replica of the one in the 90s (with a few updates of course). Without giving anything more away than you’ve already seen in the press, I loved that right off the bat, you are reunited with the entire cast. Granted, Michelle isn’t there, but 1). she was my least favorite character and 2). it’s hilarious how the storyline addresses her absence.
Jeff Franklin, the writer/producer/director for Full House and Fuller House has created a storyline that brings you right back to the way sitcoms were in the 80s and 90s. There’s a lesson in each episode, and the “Danny Tanner teaching music” as I like to call it just happens to find it’s way in. Of course, it’s not a Full House spin-off without some corny moments (like cheesy to the point I was uncomfortable, especially when the whole cast is singing Uncle Jesse’s Forever) but it reminds me of the way sitcoms used to be – very family-oriented.
Some critics naturally aren’t giving the show rave reviews, but Fuller House felt like I was at a family reunion and I loved every minute of it. I’ll definitely be binge-watching the rest of the season this weekend. Let me know what you think!
