This Is What Your Nostalgia Hath Wrought: FULLER HOUSE Is Coming To Netflix
Netflix has ordered thirteen episodes of Fuller House, a Full House "revival" announced by John Stamos last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Here's the scoop:
The multi-camera comedy sequel will focus on original cast members Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber. John Stamos, who will act as a producer, is also slated to guest-star, while discussions with original cast members Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier, and Lori Loughlin are ongoing.
In Fuller House, the adventures of the original series continue on with D.J. Tanner-Fuller (hence the show’s title) now pregnant and recently widowed living in San Francisco. DJ’s younger sister and aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Sweetin) and her BFF and fellow single mom Kimmy Gibbler (Barber)—along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona—all move in to help take of DJ’s two boys, the rebellious J.D., 12, and the neurotic Max, 7.
Fuller house! Because her last name is Fuller!
Look, I'm not the idea police, and if this is something people are excited about, good on 'em. But have any of you watched Full House with adult eyes? I loved the show as a kid - I was a TGIFer like so many small-town children with nothing else to do on Friday nights - but I was unable to finish an episode I attempted a couple of years ago. Not all of our nostalgia targets warrant revival.
