Fuller House TV show review


This show did what was impossible… Made me kind of like it after I already hated it. Fuller House is a 29 years later spin off of Full House. It follows DJ Tanner-Fuller after just losing her husband. Her sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy move in with her to help take care of her kids. This show is not original in any sense of the word or any sort of way. The plot line is the exact same, the characters are the exact same AND age difference… Even the chemistry between characters and the roles those characters play is the same! Though, I have to say, Stephanie and Kimmy make a great Jesse and Joey. Okay, so, I was very turned off from this show in the first episode. Mainly because it felt like a shitty reunion special. It was a reunion, but a terribly done one! It was just twenty five minutes of people walking into a room and then clapping. Stick with it though! Once it gets toward the dynamic of the girls, and not the old cast, it’s good!.. By good I mean 80’s good though. This show is SO 80’s. All the comedy is 80’s, the stories, the dialogue, and most of the acting… The only comedy that is not out of the 80’s is the strange out-of-left-field sex jokes. BUT, they mostly hit and make me laugh. That is what counts. (Sexy plumber was the best). For me the show stealer was Stephanie played by Jodie Sweetin. Stephanie is the new Jesse, but, instead of a guitar she has a DJ booth. Stephanie has become the world recognized “DJ Tanner” and travels the world partying… But, she also is still an amazing actor, not something that can be said for a lot of this cast. She really pulls this show together in my opinion. I’m not going to lie, Fuller House does not have a single originality to it. Every single bit of this show IS Full House. The good news is that it fakes being Full House really well! So, if you like Full House you will like this show! Enjoy!

  1. I grew up watching Full House and I feel the same way…I don’t know if I can bring myself to watch Fuller House without feeling like I’m watching some reunion. Maybe it’s designed more for the older fans of the show? I can’t see something like this being as popular on TV today as it was back then.

    Love reading your reviews! Anyone else with the initial B is good in my books. 🙂

      1. The pilot episode is usually the worst episode in any TV series anyway! You gotta have a certain amount of set-up before the real fun actually begins.
