Fuller House borrows many elements from the show it's rebooting, but it's just cornier, more forced, and lacking in charm.
November 16, 2018
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.

Netflix revival series is an irritating mix of sappy and meta.
September 8, 2017
Everywhere we look, we're getting a reboot or revival directed our way. But are they worth it?
September 26, 2016
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.
February 29, 2016
Instead of giving viewers something new with the same spirit of the beloved original, the Fuller House series premiere attempts tongue-in-cheek nostalgia that does not land and ultimately comes off as more insulting than cheeky.
February 29, 2016
As Thomas Wolfe said, you can't go home again. As Kimmy Gibbler might say, you can't go home again, because if you do, you might become trapped, haunted by hollow laughter from unseen phantoms ringing in your ears.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

There are enough bad sitcoms to while away a quiet hour (paging Dr Ken), you don't need one that happens to be stale as well.
February 29, 2016
It's an overbearing blast of nostalgia that just does not equate into an enjoyable block of entertainment.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
February 26, 2016
Fuller House is sugary garbage that might drive you to madness if you watch enough of it, which is to say it honors its predecessor... incredibly well.
February 26, 2016
[It's] faithfully as bad as the original!
February 26, 2016
Fuller House is nothing if not indulgent. And pandering.
February 26, 2016
Fuller House is a nostalgia play better accomplished by a Jimmy Fallon sketch than a 13-episode series.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 26, 2016
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.
Full Review | Original Score: F
February 26, 2016
Netflix's Fuller House is not good, but that's arguably the best thing the show has going for it.
February 26, 2016
The success of Fuller House at capturing the precise spirit of its parent series is nothing to celebrate if it means more revivals of things that worked once and fewer big, risky attempts at making things that work now.
February 26, 2016
The jokes continue to be really bad and the situations way too contrived, but it's sort of nice to see that DJ has become a veterinarian and that she has real parenting issues.
February 26, 2016
Fuller House never justifies its own existence, let alone why the uninitiated should give it a chance.
February 25, 2016
Fuller House's great achievement is that it is not the absolute worst show in history. That cannot possibly be reason enough to make something.
February 25, 2016
It represents a new low in the current culture's inability to leave behind the blankies, binkies and wubbies of one's youth.
