Full House Makes a Comeback

Several months ago, Netflix announced that they would be remaking the beloved TV show Full House, a spinoff named Fuller House. The excitement built as more and more of the old cast members signed on, and by the start of filming, nearly every actor decided to return. Netflix released all 13 episodes of the first season on February 26th, and audiences are talking about it now more than ever.

While the show was met with mixed reviews, I personally adored it. The story line follows that of the original, but this time it is D.J. who is raising three boys as a single mom. Audiences watch as sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy move in and help D.J. the same way Uncle Jesse and Joey moved in to help Danny. The comedy, adventure, and family-friendly teaching moments are [rampant] enough to make everyone remember the classic Tanner family. 

The show is definitely geared towards people who grew up watching Full House, which aired from 1987-1995, but maintained a constant TV presence many years later. Anyone who didn’t originally watch the show might not find it that fantastic because the best part is its nostalgic value. Seeing everyone back together and watching the friendly banter makes you feel like you’re 8-years-old again, but it has been updated for the 21st century with modern jargon and even a few somewhat-raunchy jokes. 

Fuller House has been renewed for a second season and there are rumors that the Olsen twins will make an appearance! Even if you’re skeptical, at least give it a chance and watch the first episode. I guarantee that you won’t be disappointed.
