When I watch any series, I binge – and since I finished How to Get Away with Murder so quick (both seasons in one week), I moved on to Fuller House because Full House was one of my favorite shows growing up. I finished it within a week as well… except this was only 13 episodes, in comparison to HTGAWM’s 40 episodes lol, but I’ll get to that in another post.
Anyway – I was skeptical at first. Bringing back an original series, wasn’t sure, but I enjoyed it a lot. Here’s everything you need to know about the show:
They called it Fuller House because that’s DJ’s new last name. Yeah, I was confused too. Based off the promotions and the original title, I thought Fuller came from the house being more full because they grew up and had families. Nope – It’s because it’s DJ’s new last name and the series is based off of the Fuller family.
Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen didn’t join the series because they haven’t acted in forever and they are busy with their fashion line. There were so many rumors going around about why they didn’t join the series – from not being asked to join, not wanting to join, Ashley having lyme disease, but it was really because they haven’t acted since they were 13 and felt they couldn’t do so (well, that’s the last thing I read, but who really knows). The cast made some jokes towards them during the series about not being a part of the show, but the Olsen twins are supposedly coming back in Season 2.
Everyone pretty much looks the same. It was pretty cool to see everyone return (even Steve), and they all look the same in their own grown up way.
Max is my favorite character. Max is DJ’s middle child, and his acting skills are amazing. He’s adorable – you’ll see what I mean if you watch the show.
If you enjoyed Full House, you’ll enjoy Fuller House. Like I said, Full House was one of my favorite TV shows growing up. It’s just as good and I think it’s pretty cool that they brought it back.
On another note, I was getting so caught up into Fuller House that I randomly decided to watch It Takes Two. I forgot how great that movie is, but forgot the ending with the whole identical strangers thing. That was weird. Anyway, check it out on Netflix and let me know what you think!
