Back in 1987, the concept of Full House probably seemed edgy and embracing of “alternative” families. It also kind of ripped off the plot of Three Men and a Baby and its subsequent Three Men and a Little Lady. In any case, Danny Tanner’s (Bob Saget) co-raising of his daughters with his brother-in-law, Jesse (John Stamos), and his best friend, Joey (Dave Coulier), wouldn’t really be considered that avant-garde in the realm of parenting right now.
And yet, as with most instances of nostalgia these days, people just can’t seem to quell their desire to dredge up revamps of so-called sacred pop culture entities. Hence, we are now saddled with Fuller House, produced by John “Jesse Katsopolis” Stamos himself. The sadly not so incongruous premise? D.J. (Candice Cameron), now a widow just like her father, moves in with her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), who is also a single mom, to raise their kids together.
Obviously, the Olsen twins are not going to have anything to do with this shit. And, if Stamos is lucky, he can maybe get Lori Loughlin and Dave Coulier to make cameos. Otherwise, we’re all stuck with the comedic stylings of Kimmy Gibler. Regardless, the entire plot smacks of a family situation that makes the Roseanne clan look classy. But it might be interesting to see D.J., Stephanie and Kimmy get shit-faced in the Tenderloin.
