Have mercy! Full House is back at it again with Fuller House, a sequel to the beloved hit 90’s sitcom.
Fans of Full House have waited years for the revival of the hit show, and Netflix has worked it’s magic to bring it back, just in a different time period.
The original cast of characters, Jesse( John Stamos), Danny (Bob Saget), Joey( Dave Coulier), Rebecca( Lori Loughlin), DJ (Candace Cameron), Kimmy (Andrea Barber) and Stephanie(Jodie Sweetin), have all made their appearances, except for the absence of the youngest Tanner, Michelle (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen).
While times have changed, the cast was still able to keep the old fun that kept the show alive in the 80’s and 90’s
The revival keeps the same classic theme song “Everywhere You Look,” now performed by Carly Rae Jepsen, that
keeps adding to a pile of nostalgia.
The show revolves around oldest Tanner daughter DJ, who is a single mother of three children. DJ moves into the old Tanner family house to raise her children, but she is not doing it alone.
DJ’s quirky friend Kimmy Gibbler, returns and finally gets her chance to be a part of the Tanner family and move into the old house with her daughter to help DJ.
The excitement continues when we see free spirited Stephanie Tanner return and move in as well to help her sister DJ. Also along for the ride are heartthrob Uncle Jesse, Aunt Becky, Danny Tanner and jokester Joey Gladstone.
A brief arrival of Jesse and Rebecca’s kids, Nikki and Alex, is featured. Both the audience and the characters feel the absence of Michelle, and the cast did not let the two of them forget it. Throughout the show, the cast threw shade towards Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen for their absence on numerous occasions, like when Danny mentioned how Michelle would not be here because they were working on a fashion line and the whole cast looked at the camera with glares.
Fuller House borders the line of being too cheesy and bringing back nostalgia. The writers of the show have luckily brought back all of our favorite catchphrases like Uncle Jesse’s famous line “Have mercy” or Stephanie’s iconic saying “How rude!” The viewer’s also get to see the same house that the show was filmed in, plus some minor changes. The show has also included DJ’s three children: Jackson, Max and baby Tommy, which is definitely a huge change to the show as they are part of the main cast now.
Junior Mackenzie Gibson watched the show the day it came out and is now almost finished with series.
“I really like the show. I loved Full House, so I knew I would love this just as much and getting to see the original cast was what I loved. The only thing bad is I felt like some of it was very forced,” said Gibson.
The show may have tried one too many times to make itself into the old show, but to junior Danielle Moore she adores all the quirky aspects of the show.
“ I loved the show. I think they did a good job trying to make it like it was, and I like the new characters in it,” said Moore.
Although Fuller House only included thirteen episodes, we can look forward to seeing the cast yet again, in season 2 that is soon to be released.
