It’s been just over a month since Fuller House hit Netflix, and we are loving it!
The spin-off of the popular late 80/early 90s sitcom Full House is taking us down memory lane and bringing us back to the present with a new generation of Tanners.
DJ and Stephanie are all grown up with lives of their own. After DJ became a widow, she and her three young boys moved back to live with Danny in their childhood home.
Stephanie, Kimmy (DJ’s best friend) and Ramona (Kimmy’s daughter) decide to move in with DJ and her boys to help her out so she’s not on her own when Danny moves out to LA with Jesse and Becky.
Of course the youngest Tanner Michelle is running her fashion empire in New York so she doesn’t make an appearance in the show. However, rumor is she will return for season 2.
There were a lot of great moments in this season of Fuller House.
Here are just a few of the best.
1. Episode One
Almost this entire episode was just a constant throwback to Full House
which was obviously amazing. One of my personal favorite moments though was when everybody was in the kitchen and they were talking about Michelle. Everybody looked into the camera and commented on her absence from the show. The cast threw some serious shade to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen for not returning and it was hilarious.
2. Episode One (again)
More amazing moments from this episode include when baby Tommy is crying and Jesse, Becky, Joey, Danny, DJ, Kimmy, Stephanie and the boys all gather around and start singing. The same scene was in Full House when Michelle was a baby. They showed a throwback to that episode and it was nothing short of perfection.
3. Episode Three
Kimmy and Stephanie decide that they needs a girls night out with DJ. Kimmy names their group the She Wolf Pack and they go to a club. At this club, the girls meet Val and Maks Chmerkovskiy from Dancing with the Stars. The men fell hard for the Tanner girls and it was so funny to watch the confident brothers act like little school girls.
4. Episode Six:
DJ’s oldest son Jackson is obsessed with this Mexican wrestling show and he really wants to go see them. DJ says no and so Jackson plans to sneak out and go see them anyway. Little does he know, his little brother Max is on stage with Lucha Kaboom. When Jackson realizes its Max on stage he gets in the ring with him. There is some miscommunication and Jackson starts getting beat on. DJ sees him and Mama Bear gets mad so she jumps into the ring and kicks some serious butt.
5. Episode Nine:
1,000 roses show up at the Tanner/Fuller/Gibbler house and all three girls think they have a secret admirer. Stephanie thinks they’re from her “husband” Harry whom she married in elementary school, DJ thinks they’re from her new beau and coworker Matt and Kimmy thinks they are from her ex-husband Fernando, who she’s secretly seeing again. Aunt Becky is determined to solve the mystery. Who is the mystery man?
6. Episode Twelve:
We all remember Steve, DJ’s first love. Steve is still in love with DJ and in this episode, they go on their first date in 20 years. They are in DJ’s kitchen cooking and they act out the pottery scene with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze from Ghost. They even sing the song, horribly. This scene is a little strange but it takes us down memory lane and reminds us of why DJ and Steve were so perfect together.
7. Episode Thirteen:
Jesse and Becky are renewing their vows, Kimmy and Fernando are getting remarried and DJ is in a love triangle with two great guys. What could possibly go wrong? In the season finale, DJ is forced to make her decision between Matt and Steve. In a dramatic reenactment of The Bachelorette DJ chooses who to love. Herself and we are so happy for her. Sure, I was pulling for one of the guys but in the end, DJ chose to make herself happy and that is the most important thing.
We loved season 1 and now we can’t wait for season 2!
Keep on watching, Collegiettes!
