As we all know, Netflix finally released the highly anticipated “Full House” sequel, “Fuller House.” When pressing play, I bypassed any doubts I had and was excited to see the cast I grew up watching. Don’t worry, I won’t spoil anything for my readers that have not gotten to the series yet.
The sequel brought back the comfort of original actors, the same goofy characters and the same character’s quotes that we love. I’m halfway through the series, and I would have to say that the first episode is EVERYTHING you’re asking for. Throughout the episode, definitely be prepared for major flashbacks and classic Danny, Joey and Jesse.
The show starts off with DJ becoming a single parent and having to raise 3 boys on her own. Her family soon departs on their own adventures and Stephanie and Kimmy realize that DJ could use their help. So, they drop their lives and move in the original “Full House” house (sounds familiar?).
They did not change a single thing on the original plot and everyone is back, except for Michelle of course. Oh yes, the Olsen twins decided not to join the cast and the writers had clever ways at hinting that in the show. Michelle is still mentioned as if there was still some hope for the character.
All in all, I enjoyed the first episode, but I’m not in a hurry to finish the whole series. It may have been the excitement of just seeing everyone back together again in the first episode. After episode 7, my excitement had fizzled down but I still got a good laugh out of it. It’s not a terrible show, but it’s also not the addictive, binge watching show either. If you were a fan of the original show, I highly recommend to at least watch the first episode. You will be very satisfied.
