Buzz about the Full House reboot had me exciting and worried. Not every idea is a god idea and when I heard the premise I was less than impressed. Twenty – Nine years later D.J. Tanner – Fuller, newly widowed moves back into her childhood home to raise her three sons after her firefighter husband passes.
The first episode a great reunion for the original cast, (except Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen), reveals that Stephanie has become a super HOT! deejay who goes by the name of Deejay Tanner. Insert Canned Laugh Here. Kimmy Gibbler who looks much like she always has, wed and reproduced with latin lover Fernando and the two have a sassy 12-year-old.
Overhearing D.J.’s plight, being a single mom with three kids (maybe she’s being overly dramatic?) Danny, Joey, Jesse and Aunt Becky offer to stay in San Fran to help raise the children.
However, Stephanie offers to give up her jet setting lifestyle to stay and help out and Kimmy eager to move into the Tanner family home since youth leapt at the chance to move in for some added assistance.
Biggest shocker from the show so far – Stephanie revealed that she is unable to have children.
I did appreciate the tie in of the old cast with the new. D.J.’s ex boyfriend now divorced has made it clear that he wants her back and at least one of the familial elders shows up once an episode to help out or eat chicken.
My favorite part so far would be the subtle hints at Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s absence and the quirky they stare into the camera when during punch-lines. Fuller House definitely has my attention.
