After much talk about “Fuller House,” the much-anticipated show arrived on Netflix on Friday, Feb. 26. According to Busines Insider a day after the Netflix release, the reviews are not all favorable. Those who grew up watching “Full House” are loving it. New viewers are the ones who don’t particularly know what the big deal is about “Fuller House” coming to Netflix.
“Fuller House” is a sitcom and sequel series to the 1987-1995 sitcom “Full House.” Like the original series, San Francisco is the setting. The focus is on the recently widowed D.J. Tanner-Fuller, who is a veterinarian. After her firefighter husband, Tommy, dies, D.J. welcomes the help of her sister, Stephanie, and her best friend, Kimmy to move in and help her raise her three boys.
Most of the original series main cast members returned in regular roles and in special appearances. When Stephanie Tanner asked where her little sister was, Danny Tanny said she was in New York running her fashion empire. This was in reference to the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen being fashion designers rather than actresses. They were the only ones from “Full House” who are not in “Fuller House.”
Rolling Stone reported that “Fuller House” became available on Netflix Friday. By Saturday morning, most die-hard fans of “Full House” had already finished watching the 13 half-hour episodes of Season 1. Now they have to wait to see if a second season is on the horizon.
Critics conclude that if you liked “Full House,” you will probably love “Fuller House.” However, if you weren’t a fan of the show 21 years ago, you probably won’t be a fan of the reboot. One good thing about “Fuller House” is that you can binge watch and get it over with at once or you can take it in small doses, one 30-minute episode at a time.
