10 Reasons Why You Should Watch ‘Fuller House’ on Netflix
Netflix has tapped into the goldmine of our nostalgia with the spin off of Full House. If you haven't binge watched it yet. You need to. Here's why.
Not that he's the star of the show by any stretch of the imagination. Regular guest appearances for sure.
But the first episode, in character John Stamos remarks "We all still look good!" and it's true. Everybody looks the same. Well, you know, older in the kids' case. But not like washed up drugged out crazy haired former child stars you sometimes see pictures of.
The thing that made TGIF and Full House appealing to my whole family sitting and watching together back in the day was the fact we all enjoyed it. The edgy cousin to my biblically minded grandmother, we all enjoyed Full House.
Fuller House continues the trend of being something everybody in the family can enjoy.
A strange thing kept happening while watching Fuller House. A strange noise my wife and I kept making - laughter.
There are comedy shows on broadcast television, that we enjoy watching, but we never do anything more than blow air out of our nose.
Fuller House had us guffawing.
There is a saying in acting "never act with pets or kids" because your performance will be forgotten because of how cute your co-star is'.
Now, not only are these kids cute, but they're talented. The stand out is young Elias Harger, the middle child. He's hilarious, he has a bright future in front of him.
The fact that they faithfully recreated the set to look like it did all of those years ago makes it feel like home just by looking at it on TV! I mean, seriously, I expected the TGIF theme song to start playing at any moment.
I loved the fact they addressed the nostalgia at one point with an episode that featured the couch.
You got it dude! How Rude! Michelle is too busy in New York with her fashion line! Do you know who the song You Oughta Know is about?
So many references... so many laughs. Good times.
From DJ overcoming the grief of losing her husband to date again, to Stephanie getting back to her family roots and leaving the party scene behind, to Kimmi deciding whether or not to give her cheating husband a second chance.
Every character develops through the 13 episode season.
These actors and actresses aren't just talented perfomers of the dramatic arts they're also pretty good at singing and dancing. Don't be surprised to hear Stephanie sing a song, or see Kimmie and DJ bust a move.
From coming together as a family to lessons in responsibility, each episode has that classic feel that the old Full House had. They overcome problems as a family with love/dancing /lucha libre wrestling.
Seriously, while watching the show my wife and I kept saying between the writing and acting there's nothing better on TV!
