A couple of decades after the popular television show Full House ended, there was talks of a reunion show. This reunion turned into something even greater as a majority of the original cast were able to participate in a reboot of the All American, classic television show. Netflix announced that they would release all episodes of season 1 on February 26th, 2016. Since its release, the show has gained mainly great feedback, with only a few critics. Here’s a look at how Fuller House did.
New, but similar storyline
The premise of Fuller House is very similar to the original Full House, as the eldest daughter D.J Fuller (formerly Tanner)arrives back at her childhood home with her three children. Her husband has passed away, leaving her a single mom of three boys. Seeing the struggle that she is going through, her father Danny Tanner decides to let D.J. and her boys live in the original “Full House” home. Her sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy (along with her teenage daughter) decide to also move in to help D.J. with her kids. This is the same thing that happened in the original series. Danny Tanner’s wife passed away leaving him a single dad of three girls. His best friend Joey, and brother in law Jesse move in to help raise the girls, which brought about major life lessons.
Great reviews, some upset by the content
Netflix is known for releasing a series in its entirety, and so all 13 episodes of Fuller House were available to watch on February 26th. This allowed many to finish the series in days (or hours) and gather their own reviews of the show. Most critics agreed that it was a great first season. Many people agreed that it wasn’t as “corny” as they thought it was going to be. Others wanted to see the “cheesy family values” that were so prominent in the original series. Some even said that the show was too risqué to be considered a family friendly show. There was more skin showed, hidden dirty jokes, and alcohol present. It still has more than enough of the family values that folks want to see, while keeping up with the times. There is also a definite balance between the children and adult storylines, which gives the show a uniqueness from the original series.
Already talking Season 2
Shortly after the release of the first season, it was announced that the cast would be back for a second season. Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber will be back as the three main characters, with special guest appearances by others from the original series. Absent from this season, were Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, who played the youngest daughter, Michelle. The cast made it known that they were missed throughout the season, and really hope that they will be able to come back for at least a small guest appearance for season 2.
No word yet on when Season 2 will begin filming, but we can expect to see the Fuller’s, Tanner’s, and Gibbler’s on our screens again soon!
