Full House: Round Two

Ladies and gentlemen, hold onto your hats for the second best second-coming in all of history.


Popular 90s sitcom Full House is returning to television.

Warner Bros. Television has recently revealed that they have begun the initial stages to revive the show, thus increasing the quality of life of everybody with access to a television.

After eight highly successful seasons, the show ceased production in 1995 and family entertainment has not been the same since. Now, thanks to continuously excellent ratings on the TV Guide for the past nineteen years, Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier may grace our homes with their warmth and charm once more.

Leading this come-back are executive producer Robert Boyett and the benevolent creator of the show, Jeff Franklin. Stamos (or Uncle Jesse for those who are too busy singing along to the theme song to read the opening credits) is one of the major supporters of the revival, as he has an ownership stake of the show.

Other original actors such as Candace Cameron (DJ), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie), and Andre Barber (wacky neighbor Kimmy Gibbler) have also made clear that they too would be on board for returning.

Rumors circulate that Bob Saget and Dave Coulier have been actively involved, but there has yet anything to be said about the return of Mary Kate and or Ashley Olsen. Only Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky) has stated that a reboot of the show would not interest her.

For eight wonderful years from 1987 to 1995 the show graced us with its signature blend of comedy and good-natured family-oriented moral lessons.

Along with being able to make the whole family laugh, with either Uncle Joey’s classic impressions or little Michelle’s cheeky quips, the show also covered a variety of very serious issues, such as driving under the influence, the death of a loved one, and amnesia.

The show has continued to hang on to all its popularity and relevance even in modern times. Those who are seeking to re-experience “the good ‘ole days” know that they can always tune into Nick-at-Nite and some late hour and revel with the Tanners and their 90s problems that seem so distant from today.

One corner of the internet is doing a great deal of keeping Full House alive and relevant. A blog titled “Full House Reviewed” has gained a large amount of followers. The blog’s premise is this: each blog post is dedicated to a detailed review of each and every episode the television series. Although, every post may not be saying the most positive thing in the world, it does continue to entertain folks and always keep the show relevant and fun even in these modern times.

One can only guess now, whether this new reboot of the quintessential show of the ‘90s will continue to take place in the decade that it exemplifies or perhaps move on to modern times so the audience may see how the Tanner clan is doing in the 21st century and if Uncle Jessie- who is married and has two children of his own- ever finally decided to move out and stop living in Danny Tanner’s attic.

No matter when it takes place or if Jessie stopped free-loading off of Danny, I’m sure that the show will have the same compassion and nostalgia as the original.
