Nostalgia is a funny thing and depending on the generation, it actually serves as a cash cow. Netflix has managed to, yet again, find another reason to recruit subscribers by producing a series to continue or expand one of the 90s most beloved shows: Full House. As the first of the reunion shows, Fuller house delivered with snazzy remarks, 4th wall breaks and invitations to Michelle Tanner to join them. (Ashley and Mary Kate weren’t available to reprise their roles.) Even without the baby of the family, the new adaptation is brilliant and very reminiscent of the past with a touch of maturity and satire that may have been too subtle to catch the first time around.
Now on its second season, DJ (Candice Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy (Andrea Barber) spearhead the adventures of the Fuller family, DJ’s married name. As a newly minted widow, she recruits the help of her sister and BFF to raise her three boys: Jackson, 13, Max, 8 and Tommy, 1. It turns out that Mrs. Fuller, a veterinarian with a very successful practice moved into her childhood home shortly after her loss to get back on her feet. After the antics of seasons one and two, you are relieved to find out that she is finally on her way back from her loss, and in very good hands. The entire Tanner clan makes appearances throughout the show to check in on her and gives us a taste of the feelings that made Full House America’s Sweetheart prime time show.
Stream Fuller House on Netflix and enjoy 26 straight half hours of laughter, love, cameos from 90s staples and lots of hugs! Watch Uncle Jesse ( John Stamos) and Joey (Dave Coullier), and Aunt Becky (Lori Loughlin) reprise their roles alongside Danny (Bob Saget). I guarantee you’ll fall in love with San Francisco’s first family all over again.
