After the initial dose of nostalgia, Fuller House has little to offer to anyone except the original series' most diehard fans.

Critic Reviews for Fuller House Season 1

All Critics (50) | Top Critics (24)

Netflix revival series is an irritating mix of sappy and meta.

Top Critic

Fuller House scrambles the normal critical circuitry. It is bad, but in a manner so in keeping with the original that to harp on its badness feels like meanness, akin to insulting a three-legged dog for not having four.

Top Critic

It's not necessary to know every nuance of the original 1987-95 family sitcom to enjoy Fuller House... But longtime fans are certain to get more out of the show because they'll recognize every familiar face and get every inside joke.

Feb 24, 2016 | Full Review…

It's always nice to see old friends and family, even when they might be as cheesy as a bag of snack food.

Feb 17, 2016 | Full Review…

A winner, strictly for fans.

Top Critic

By lazily throwing everything at the wall without a single element sticking, Fuller House stands as a threat to memories of an older generation and future memories of a younger one. How rude, indeed.

Top Critic

The show pretty much falls in place next to its predecessor in terms of storyline, humour and performance.

Jul 17, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

If you loved Full House, warts and all, you'll get a kick out of the nostalgic feel, and how they decided to pick up the story almost 30 years later as opposed to truly rebooting.

Apr 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Fuller House borrows many elements from the show it's rebooting, but it's just cornier, more forced, and lacking in charm.

Apr 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Nostalgia sells, and this show is clearly aimed at millennials who watched Full House as kids and now have kids of their own, just like D.J.

Nov 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Fuller House jumps out straight from the 90s in its storytelling structure and it's a welcoming thing to nostalgia addicts. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 12, 2018 | Full Review…

These are.. still three characters we know and love - they're just grown up now.

Audience Reviews for Fuller House: Season 1

  • Aug 21, 2020
    Beware: not at all suitable for kids!
  • Jun 08, 2020
    It was a bit raunchy at times, but was thrilled to have the Full House characters back in action.
  • Mar 14, 2020
    The house is fuller than it was in Full House. But the laughter is lesser (not to mention its lack of emotions).
  • Jan 22, 2020
    I loved watching Full house growing up, so when this came on I binge watched it all the way through and watched it again and again!!
  • Jan 28, 2019
    Very poor acting. It feels like everyone is doing a stage show and not a tv show. I used to watch Full House as a kid and used to love the show. To get to see the future of those characters is fun but looks like the producers couldn't help the situation much since they had to stick to the same actors even though they don't know how to act. Even the new kids (except for the character 'Ramona') are "over" acting throughout the show. It gets 1.5 stars because I see genuine effort to make the content but poor acting skills and poor direction gives it all away.

    I love this show and all it,'s nostalgia. It is so quirky and doesnt take itself seriouslt which is why I love it
  • Jan 17, 2019
    Husband and I started this series two weeks ago! We were excited to get home from work, eat dinner and cuddle up to watch it everyday. The only other show that has done this to us was the office. It’s a hit in our house and we hope it comes back for season 5 and MORE! Kimmy gibbler is a super star in this series!

    I loved Full house, and now I’am in love ?? with fuller house. This brings back so many memories of my own childhood and having my children watch it with me, is absolutely awesome. I’m watching it right now lol. Keep this show on Netflix....

    Nostalgia was a blast! Enough original character power to ignore some missing story lines. Very glad I continued to season 2, as its better.
