It's selling nostalgia hard, but nostalgia for what? Simply because something had popularity for a time does not guarantee it a place in the history books.

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.

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.

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

A winner, strictly for fans.

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.

Audience Reviews for Fuller House: Season 1

"Have mercy..." D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy are back for all new shenanigans in the Netflix spin-off/revival series Fuller House. In Season 1, after recently having been widowed, D.J. is left to raise three young boys on her own...until her sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmy step up and decide to move in with her and help (basically the same premise as the original series). The first episode is more or less a reunion special with the entire cast of Full House returning (except for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen), but it then quick becomes its own show focusing on the new characters with Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier making occasional guest appearances. Also, the comedy stays true the style and format of a '90s family sitcom, which is refreshingly retro in how innocent and free of cynicism it is; though there are a few digs at Mary-Kate and Ashley in explaining their character's absence from the show. Surprisingly fun and full of laughs, Fuller House: Season 1 is a worthy successor to the original series.
