Fuller House Review

If you were alive at all in the 90’s, you know what Full House is. There was nothing more fulfilling than getting home from school and watching the back to back episodes, waiting for that moment that John Stamos would appear on the screen. No? That was just me?

The first episode opens with the original opening theme and fades into our favourite painted lady, captioned by ’29 years later…’. As the familiar crew gathers in the classic kitchen before starting off their days, it is here that everyone’s story is explained in a somewhat over-methodical fashion. Their lives unravel in obvious over talking rather than being expressed in a natural conversation, adding a cheesiness that by far fails compared to the original scripts. A second theme song is played as each member of the regular cast is seen from season one to present day.

You learn that DJ (Candace Cameron) is now a widowed single mom of three boys whose husband died while on a call as a firefighter, Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) has embraced the life of a globe-trotting DJ, and, as the cast disappointingly stares down the camera, it is announced that Michelle is busy with her fashion empire in New York. Kimmy is still the annoying and invasive neighbor she’s always been while her daughter seems to mimic the quirkiness of her mother’s teenage years.

The veterans of the shows were nice enough to make an appearance for the first episode; Danny (Bob Saget), Joey (Dave Coulier) and Jesse (John Stamos), alongside on-screen wife Rebecca (Lori Loughlin), are all scheduled to return to Los Angeles for respective jobs in the city, which was disappointing to say the least. What’s a Full House reboot without those four! I guess we can’t be choosy at this point. There’s even an appearance from Steve, DJ’s high school romance who is now divorced and seemingly eager to mingle with his old sweetheart.

As with common sit-com practice, the first episode was a poor attempt to set the stage, roles and dynamics early on. Now of course the producers had to tip their hat to the original series and include staples of the initial episodes. However, when all of these references and classic one-liners are sporadically dispersed throughout one episode, the gesture seems much more of a list of punch lines and significant scenes that were classic for the show than an actual series premiere of something. The set up for the overall plot is also lost amongst the return of ‘How rude’ and a split screen comparison of the original house residents reciting the Flintstone’s theme song.

The whole episode is a mishmash of old jokes, leaving us to worry that this may just be a mirror reflection of the original series with less people in the house. As with any TV reboot, we just have to wait and see how the series pans out.
