Fuller House Review


Remy Fisher, Reporter

Have mercy! The hilarious references that emerged from the ‘90s TV show, Full House, are back!

Fuller House, the spin-off of the original sitcom, is a Netflix-produced series that aired on February 26th, 2016; just over twenty years later. The show featured the original cast members: DJ Tanner (Candace Cameron-Bure), Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin), Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), Uncle Jesse (John Stamos), Uncle Joey (David Alan Coulier), Aunt Becky (Lori Loughlin), and Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber).

DJ Tanner, a mom of three, has recently moved back in with her dad, Danny, in her childhood home. Every day is a struggle: raising three kids, trying to find a home, and coping with the passing of her beloved husband. I guess you could say things are pretty rough for DJ. But when her sister and best friend arrive at her rescue, things starts to change for the better. Kimmy (DJ’s best friend), her daughter Ramona, and Stephanie (DJ’s sister) agree to move into the house and help raise the four kids. In essence, the sequel’s plot mirrors the original: the three adults are raising their kids in the same house (whoa).

I will admit, I had low expectations for this spin-off. I felt that the directors would take the show in an entirely different direction than the original, but thankfully that didn’t happen. The first few episodes epitomized the general theme that Full House brought us back in the ‘90s. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the initial TV show. All in all, I would say that this spin-off can’t replace the original, but it is a great way to relive memories of the nostalgic past.
