An Honest Review of Fuller House
I had every intention of binge watching Fuller House last weekend when it was released on Netflix, but life happens and I ended up being super busy. Last night I finally got to watch the first two episodes (before I fell asleep on the couch). I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on the show so I figured I would throw in my two cents now that I have actually seen (some of) it.
If you don't like cheesy nostalgia and 29 year old jokes, just skip episode one. There were a lot of parallels drawn to the very first episode of Full House that aired in 1987, which should be expected. Its a reboot. They have to do that to keep the familiarity of the show for the old fans and get the new fans up to speed. Jesse and the Rippers busted out their hit single "Forever" and the whole cast singing together was a nice moment, but the musical number that stole the show was DJ, Stephanie, and Kimmy Gibbler strutting their stuff to some New Kids on the Block.
By the second episode you can definitely see the Tanner Family evolve into their new-ish personas, and the kids seem to be familiar yet unique characters.That being said I have every intention of finishing the season, hopefully this coming weekend.
Also, I never seemed to notice this in the countless hours I have spent watching Full House, but the kitchen curtains are the same pattern as the sofa in the living room. Am I the only one that missed that detail?!
Fuller House has been renewed for a second season after being on Netflix for less than a week. No release date has been set yet, but follow Mix 94.9 on Twitter and we will be the first to let you know!
