As I told you last month, I have been a fan of Full House since I was a little girl. I was super thrilled with the chance to watch the first six episodes of Fuller House in advance to give you my honest opinion of it thanks to being a part of the Stream Team crew.
About Fuller House:
In Fuller House, the adventures that began in 1987 on Full House continue, with veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) recently widowed and living in San Francisco. D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and D.J.’s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas), all move in to help take care of D.J.’s three boys — the rebellious 12-year-old Jackson (Michael Champion), neurotic 7-year-old Max (Elias Harger) and her newborn baby, Tommy Jr (Messitt Twins).
Guest appearances by John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis), Bob Saget (Danny Tanner), Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone), Lori Loughlin (Becky Katsopolis) and Scott Weinger (Steve Hale).
Fuller House is from Miller-Boyett Productions and Jeff Franklin Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television for Netflix. Robert L. Boyett, Thomas L. Miller and Jeff Franklin are the executive producers of the series, which was created by Franklin. John Stamos is a producer.

As a loyal reader of our blog, you also get to view this video filled with interviews of Candace Cameron Bure and Andrea Barber.
I see how the producers are trying to keep the same wholesome family love that was found in Full House. D. J. Tanner, Stephanie Tanner, and Kimmy all are working together to raise the D. J.’s kids and Kimmy’s daughter. D.J’s character is raising her kids with loving discipline and helping Kimmy to do the same with her daughter. Of course, Aunt Stephanie gets to be the cool one with the kids.
I do like how these three women are created to be inspirations to other mothers in our world. They still look amazing even after having kids and going through hardships. They are hard working mothers and still dedicated to raising their kids the best of their ability. They also value friendship too.
It’s almost a complete spin-off of Full House, with the roles changed to the current parenting generation. For a parent who was raised up on Full House and wants to share this experience with her own kids, it’s a great addition to the original show.
I believe that those who weren’t HUGE fans of Full House when it first aired on TV will not fully appreciate this new Netflix exclusive series. I’ve already seen some negative press put out for this series. I have to agree with the Yahoo post’s comment:
The magazine’s Chief TV Critic Maureen Ryan predicts, “Those who enjoyed the original ‘Full House’ and who don’t mind its patented blend of cloying sentiment, cutesy mugging, and predictable humor might find enjoyment in this unspectacular retread. However every time John Stamos wanders through ‘Fuller House,’ we’re reminded that it’s possible to see a better version of this sitcom — in Stamos’ ‘Grandfathered,’ for Fox.
I was expecting to see more of the original adults from Full House. For me, that is becoming more of a disappointment than I expected it to be.
I finally got to watch the REST of Season 1 over the weekend. I got to see MORE of the adults in the later episodes which definitely made the series more entertaining for me. I still like this series!! I am hooked. I can’t wait to see what happens in Season 2 with D.J. and her suitors.
However, as one of the readers pointed out, it’s not as wholesome as I originally thought because there is a lot of things of the “world” that are done and shown throughout this series. I will still watch the series, but I haven’t let my kids watch it with me. I couldn’t pin point why until her comment was added.
Wholesome Movie Recommendation
The good news is, though if you find you DON’T like Fuller House, I do have a solid movie recommendation for you to watch instead.
If you’re looking for a wholesome good movie to watch with the family, I do recommend The One I Wrote for You. It has a nice message about not giving up on your dreams, and not losing your soul to do it.
Are you looking forward to watching Fuller House on the 26th?
