A Very Special Comment

I received the following comment on my post, “Season 1 Reviewed” today.  I try to make a point of sticking to the reviews and not straying outside of that format very much on this blog but I thought that this particular comment warranted its very own post:
Submitted on 2011/05/23 at 12:14 am | In reply to billysuperstar.

Uhh…I really hope you’re being sarcastic. You know it’s “cross I bear” not “cross-eyed-bear,” don’t you?

Also, do you really have nothing better to do with your time than to keep a blog purely for the purpose of bashing a TV show that’s been off the air for sixteen years? I mean, it would be one thing if this show was still making episodes or if anyone really cared to read your shallow opinion, (cause let’s just be honest, that’s all this is..), but don’t you think it’s a little odd for you to be airing all of this just now? I mean, heaven forbid anyone catch a rerun of this “horrible” show! It’s not taking up a primetime spot and it’s not like you even have to see any commercials for it, so what’s the deal? Seriously, why aren’t you spending your time actually contributing something to society in a positive way?

Oh, and one more thing…if you really see fit to continue this silly little project, at least do some research. Even a little bit would be much better than the obvious ZERO you’ve put in thus far…
If you’d done any research whatsoever, or perhaps even just went as far as to turn off the reruns and get off the couch, you’d be aware of the fact that almost all of the Full House cast members went on to accomplish many more things after the show ended. As a matter of fact, your Kimmy Gibbler (aka: Andrea Barber, whom I’m also a fan of so I say this with no disrespect), probably was the one who has stayed out of the spotlight the most. That’s not to say she’s been unsuccessful–she’s a stay at home mom to a beautiful family, and I’m sure very proud of her accomplishments, as she should be.
But you should also know that Candace Cameron-Bure (in case you’re not quite up to date, as I suspect you aren’t, “Bure” comes from NHL star, Valeri Bure, her husband of 15 years), has definitely kept busy herself. She’s a very successful motivational Christian speaker, a New York Times best selling author, she’s remained in the public eye doing several movies and TV guest spots, and is currently one of the stars of ABC Family’s highly-successful “Make It Or Break It.” Not to mention her three beautiful children that undoubtedly keep her busy.
So yeah, I suppose if that’s your definition of unsuccessful, your statement would be accurate.

Dave Coulier has continued with his successful stand-up comedy. Bob Saget has had a few (albeit short-lived) sitcom and game-show hosting
stints. Mary-Kate and Ashley are enormously successful business moguls, running several high-end clothing companies out of NY and LA. That might not seem impressive to you, but I’m pretty sure their billions of dollars speak otherwise…

Heck, even Steve became Aladdin and Comet hit it big with a little thing called “Air Bud.”

Here’s a new plan for ya: turn off the TV and go get a job….or pick up a book? Maybe go to school. Do something worth something with your life…

That’s the end of the comment.  I thought it raised a few interesting issues so I decided to post a response:

First of all, yes, I am aware that the Alanis Morrisette lyric is, “cross I bear” and not, “cross eyed bear.”  I was making a joke.  Don’t you think it kind of sounds like she’s saying, “cross eyed bear”?  I always thought so.  Anyway, now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to the real shit.

I could never blame anyone who’s a fan of Full House for thinking that I’m an asshole for writing this blog.  If I saw a similar blog that shit all over a show that I liked, for example “Taxi” or “I Love Lucy,” then, yeah, I’d probably think it was pretty annoying (I also wouldn’t bother to read it).  In my opinion, Full House is the worst sitcom of all time, and there’s nothing that you could say or do to change my mind.  Alternately, you seem to think it’s pretty darn good, and no amount of criticism on my end will persuade you to think otherwise.  Probably the most constructive thing here would be to agree to disagree, but since you took the time to write a long, thorough, patronizing  comment that takes a number of personal shots at me, I thought I might at least clarify my intentions a little.

I guess the thing that really bothers me is your assumption that I am uneducated, unemployed, have nothing constructive to contribute to society and nothing better to do than sit around all day criticizing a terrible tv show.  Just to clarify:  I have a college degree, a full-time career that I’m very proud of and, in my humble opinion at least, has done good things for people other than myself.  Finally, yes, I do have a lot of better things to do than write this blog and, frankly, keeping up with these weekly posts has been a huge pain in the ass.  Since I’ve started this blog I’ve moved across the country and completed dozens of work-related projects and maintaining this blog sure as shit hasn’t made doing any of those things any easier.  So why do I do it?  Part of the reason I started this blog was to maintain a regular writing exercise, but it’s also a lot of fun.  I was actually seriously considering calling it quits a few months in but then I suddenly found an audience and, despite your claim that no one wants to read my shallow opinions, the main reason I keep it up is to entertain the thousands of people who read it every week.

This is an entertainment blog.  That’s all it is.  Like most (if not all) of my audience, I watched a hell of a lot of tv growing up.  Watching Full House, not because it was actually a good show but rather because it was compellingly awful, was a part of my childhood, and apparently this is an experience I’ve shared with a lot of other people.  Also like most (if not all) of my audience, I have a job that allows me to spend way too much time screwing around on the internet.  I’m always looking for a fun blog to read when I’m supposed to be working and so I thought I’d try to make one for other people.  This isn’t a political statement or a manifesto or anything of the sort, it’s just a ridiculous hobby that takes a few hours out of my week that a few thousand people have taken a liking to.  Is that really worth getting so bent out of shape about?

As far as not doing enough research about the cast, all I have to say is that I honestly don’t give a shit about any of those people.  After reading your lengthy paragraphs about their many achievements, I care even less.  One thing I found ironic about your pissed off diatribe is that Kimmie Gibbler and I have actually had a few brief exchanges over twitter and she seemed pretty amused by the blog.  Honestly, if you made millions of dollars and fans from being on that show, would you care at all about what one guy thinks about it?  I sincerely doubt it.  Finally, how would you define success?  Sure, Dave Coulier probably made more money last weekend than I make in a year, but does that make him successful?  That guy hasn’t told one funny joke in over 20 years of being a comedian.  Sure, he was on a tv show and he had a shitty song written about him, but in my opinion sucking at what you do is not success, no matter how much money you make.

Although I found your comment to be presumptuous and bitchy, it was also the first bit of negative feedback I’ve received that was written in complete sentences.  So kudos to you!  Here’s to many more years of Full House Reviewed, and I hope your patronizing rant is not the last!

    Oh man, where to begin….?

    First of all, I am compelled to assume that the writer of this rant is none other than Candace Cameron-Bure herself. I was going to guess Dave Coulier, but given that the longest paragraph spent on defending people is Candace, I switched guesses.

    Secondly, I hope you really weren’t troubled by this rant, as you sort of seemed to be. 😦 That said, I, too, greatly enjoy negative rants. The negativer, the better. }:) So I enjoyed this. I particularly enjoy the fact that his (her?) primary argument was basically ad hominem–defending the people involved–when that bears absolutely no relevance to the point of this blog whatsoever.

    lol, stupidity. It really cracks me up. 🙂


    • Teebore says:

      Right, like the fact that Candace Cameron got married and had kids somehow means she wasn’t paid to spout horrible, unfunny dialogue when she was a kid?


    • michmich says:

      I have my suspicions that DJ Tanner was the writer of the rant as well


    • Lisa says:

      No way! Candace Cameron, Dave Coulier, John Stamos and Lori Loughlin have always come across as genuinely nice people. My money’s on Saget. Given that they all kind of acknowledge the inanity of this show, though, more likely this is some random person who really doesn’t get the joke. Hey random person! Guess what? I actually love this show. But I also love this blog, because I can recognize that what I love about Full House is the nostalgia factor. I realize that the production itself is perplexingly bad, which this blog is pointing out so we don’t have to. Carry on!


    • NotADragon says:

      I remember reading that comment…I believe we came to the consensus that it was Comet.


  3. Teebore says:

    That picture kinda says it all, doesn’t it? 🙂

    I love people who think that blogging is some kind of full time job that prevents the writer from doing anything else.

    You spend a few hours a week poking fun at a dumbass TV show for the entertainment of others. It’s not like you’re killing puppies or something…


  4. Spanny Tampson says:

    Oh hail no. I love your blog. I love it a lot. I also love Full House. Your blog actually inspired me to do my own recap blog, of Ms. Candace Cameron-Bure’s “highly successful” TV show, Make It or Break It. I love the show, but damned if it’s not the stupidest thing on TV right now. That doesn’t make me love it any less. But writing a blog about a silly TV show actually takes a lot of time. To rewatch these mind-numbing episodes, and then try to write something entertaining and creative takes more effort than people might expect.

    So to the commenter, eff off.


  5. Spanny Tampson says:

    Hey thanks! You’ll see that it’s shockingly similar to yours. But I just never seem to grow tired of screencaps that make the actors look as horrible as possible.



    • billysuperstar says:

      done deal! hey, how come you get way more comments than i do? youve got more facebook fans, too. dang!


      • Spanny Tampson says:

        Ha, I lucked out with a built-in fan base. Since it’s supposed to be a show about gymnastics, all of the real life gymnasts and fans freaked out, because it’s actually pretty insulting to the sport.


      • billysuperstar says:

        dont sell yourself short! a built-in audience certainly helps but people keep reading it because its well made. well done!


  6. Roxy says:

    I thought your reviews were okay and sometimes funny but I too fail to understand why you didn’t pick a show you liked instead of one you clearly hate. Don’t get me wrong, FH is not my show, I am no one’s lawyer so I don’t care what you say about them;and I am not this big fan either.But I never understood why people watch something they hate instead of something they like just to criticize.I agree with so many things you say about this show,I’ve noticed them myself.I would not, however start a blog to criticize them, I may right an article or two on my blog and that’s about it.PS You do have writing skills.


    • billysuperstar says:

      that’s actually a really interesting question, roxy. i guess the truth is that i do like full house in a way: i like how much i hate it. ive been watching this show since i was a kid and the phrase that’s always fit best is that i find it “compellingly awful.” and call me what you will but i think its really funny to talk about how bad it is. to me its like making lemons from lemonade. part of the reason i keep this blog is because i would have read it if someone else had made it before me. i know it’s dumb but so are a lot of things on the internet. another reason i keep the blog is because i wanted to create a writing exercise for myself, so the subject i picked was actually pretty arbitrary. its more important to me that i get an article written that’s x words long and is fun to read than that i preach the gospel about how hard this show sucks. so part of why i write about full house is because its easy. this isnt my grand artistic effort, its a ridiculous hobby i keep on the side when im not working on my grand artistic effort. anyway, i think this project is a big enough waste of time already when im not defending myself so i think ill just suck it up if anyone else writes a comment that makes me question why im doing such a long and worthless project. thanks a lot for saying i have writing skills! thats really what its all about.


      • Roxy says:

        You know,you’re answer kind of makes sense. And I truly enjoy you’re blog. And I know what you mean by everything else was taken.I run a Ghost Whisperer blog because every other show I like more than GW(although I actually like this show) was taken. Sorry if it sounded somehow else, but I didn’t mean you should stop. I enjoy it and so do many other people and now I can sort of see where you’re coming from 🙂 Keep it up.it’s definitely one of a kind 😀 I only meant why would you torture yourself lol. I hope my comment didn’t seem mean spirited.


      • billysuperstar says:

        thanks, roxy! send me a link to your ghost whisperer blog so i can blogroll it! let me know if you want it titled a certain way…


  7. Jeannie says:

    I’m the living proof that someone can be both a fan of the show and a fan of your blog (and I hope that I fit into the writing-with-complete-sentences group of FH fans, as English is not my native language – I’m trying my best ;)). As I said some time ago, I agree with you on almost everything you point out about this show not being the greatest sitcom of all time. I could probably engage in a discussion and try to counter most of your arguments from my standpoint (i.e., that this show was never meant to be sound in terms of continuity and, serving a particular didactic purpose, both the characters and the plotlines are grossly exaggerated to clearly illustrate a point), but that’s not the point here, is it? As you said, this is an entertainment blog and it’s damn good at serving its purpose. I for one look forward to your reviews every week. Please continue with your project!


    • billysuperstar says:

      thanks, jeannie! i appreciate your unique perspective. im glad theres at least one full house fan out there that doesnt feel towards me the way i feel towards uncle joey.


  8. DrBitz says:

    My response to that commenter would have been “Your face!” but your response has a certain more thought out, intellectual quality to it…if you’re into that kind of thing.

    I also like how the commentor talks about how you have no life yet they seemed to know way more about the Full House actors’ lives than anyone should…unless it is one of them.

    You know you’ve arrived when you get a) all out hate mail defending the “dignity” of the subject in question; b) a dedicated and appropriately hateful troll; c) blogged/mocked by one of the infinite blogs that cater to adolescent males on the internet

    Your on your way, my good sir.


  10. Roxy says:

    wow, thanks, that is so nice of you. I will definitely do the same for your blog. I am only getting started and it’s not as good as yours(I’m working on it lol) . Here’s the link http://www.ghostwhisperereg.com naming it Ghost Whisperer Episode Guide is probably fine. What do you want me to name yours?


  11. I absolutely love your blog and the Full House. I honestly don’t think the two are mutually exclusive, as some have already pointed out. I also am really glad you took the time to answer the questions point by point.

    And I hope that your final photo for your review is you and Kimmy Gibbler, looking awesome. (I’m working my way through this blog, so apologies if this photo already exists)


  12. Sara says:

    Whoever wrote this takes the show way too seriously. I am a fan of the show and enjoy watching reruns but that doesn’t mean it’s not funny to read someone else pointing out the flaws in the show.

    I think Candace Cameron wrote this as well. I can’t imagine anyone defending the cast as thoroughly as this person did and the writing style is very similiar to her tweets on twitter. If not Candace then one of the other cast members, or someone who knows way too much about these actors lives.

    Anyway, this is productive to society. It provides entertainment for those of us who wants a good laugh. Keep up the good work.


  13. I am a fan of Full House. I watched it as a child, I own all 8 seasons on DVD, and I bring it with me so the little girls I babysit can watch it with me. They think it’s hysterically funny because it’s so outdated, and we bond.

    I legitimately love watching it. But not because it’s GOOD. I totally know that almost everything about this show is nutso, but I still love it.

    And guess what? I love this blog. I would love for you to do this same thing for Roseanne and the Cosby Show. I know you link to a Cosby blog here, but it’s not the same type of content that you produce. KEEP UP THIS AMAZING WORK.


  14. Brendan says:

    I found this blog around three weeks ago and have been reading through the backlog so that I can catch up with your new posts. This helped pass the time on a veeeery long train ride and made the people around me uncomfortable because I had finally stopped even trying to contain my laughter.

    Keep it up!


  15. Christine Barrett says:

    I’m not ashamed to admit that this is one of my favorite shows of all time. I own the complete series, the one that comes in the house-shaped box. However, I also recognize that it’s NOT a good show. It’s pretty terrible and lame, but for whatever reason, I enjoy the hell out of it. Which I think is the reason I love your blog so goddamn much. I think this show is god-awful in the best possible way, and your commentary is spot-on. Keep it up! Haters gonna hate!


  16. Damn. I was ready to say “oh, come ON, would it really be Candace Cameron?” (yeah yeah, I’m from Vancouver, we had the REAL Bure NHL star here) until I saw this:

    “Not to mention her three beautiful children that undoubtedly keep her busy.”

    Uh.. “her three *beautiful* children”? Unless this is posted by a terrifying Candace-Cameron-Bure stalker of the first order, no one other than ‘mom’ should be referring to the kids as ‘beautiful’.

    Sorry babe, but you just outed yourself.


  17. (also, how does she feel on the contribution of the banana to the argument against evolution?)


  18. Oh, and so the commenter was ‘Lauren’? Might this be the source of the pseudonym?



    (crap. I just realized that I now qualify as the aforementioned “terrifying Candace-Cameron-Bure stalker of the first order”. Good night folks, don’t forget to tip your server!)


  19. (dammit! I found one more link of the previously unchecked. But I have NO idea WTF this is about. Candace Cameron vs.. Lauren … Bacall??




  20. Zozo says:

    At first I wondered if the person who posted this comment was the same person posting as “esther” and “jo suck”, but then I realized that this person actually knows how to spell and use correct grammar. And what I found funny is they have time to dis this blog and defend a show that they admitted themselves was over with. What better time to take a new look at something than after it’s over?


  21. Kayla says:

    I, too, am I fan of Full House and a fan of this blog. Keep up the great laughs! I know what you mean about how the show is “compellingly awful”. I can’t help but get sucked into it but it pretty much annoys me the whole time. Especially Danny Tanner. Bob Saget is to me what Dave Coulier is to you!


  22. Dr.Victator says:

    The show Whitney is worse than Full House. One episode of Whitney equals two seasons of Full House, and I happily watched every episode of SBTB:The New Class.


  23. Amanda says:

    I will happily admit that Full House is one of my favorite shows. Saying that, I will add that it is not one of my favorite shows because of it’s quality. I’ll openly admit that it was a pretty bad show. The whole reason I still watch the show and have members of the cast on my twitter (including Mrs. Cameron-Bure, gonna follow Andrea Barber in a moment, she’s the only one missing besides the Olsen twins, and well forget that lol) is for the nostalgia. I grew up with this show (I was born in 1979 so I’m right smack between DJ and Stephanie in age). It reminds me of my childhood, and that’s why I continue to watch it, and support the cast in their endevours (watched Can’t Get Arrested on youtube, it was actually funny). If this show and others from the era disappear, in a way, so does my childhood. It’s the same reason I have a Danny Wood doll sitting on my computer desk (OK…so that’s really because he’s the only one who didn’t sell on Ebay after relisting him 4 times…poor Danny), and jam out to NKOTB in my car without shame. I’d be willing to wager that many of your readers are similar to me. I doubt that anyone who truly HATES the show would waste their time reading this blog. If anything your helping to keep this show and it’s characters alive. That’s why Candace Cameron-Bure can sell a shirt on her site that says “My favorite DJ is DJ Tanner” and Bob Saget can include jokes about the show in his comedy routine (love the line “Full House, wasn’t that funny, but fuck you, made lots of money” in his “Danny Tanner Was Not Gay” song) which really is the point here. The people involved in the show really shouldn’t take this blog personally (well, maybe the writers) because regardless of your opinion (which is a very funny opinion if you ask me) they are still profiting off the show 16 years later (That DJ tanner shirt is available in Candace Cameron-Bure’s store right along side her Christian parenting books). To close this ridiculously long comment I will add my vote that the author of the negative comment was DJ Tanner herself. It does read like her tweets, she emphasises the successfulness of the the two actresses becoming mothers (and that’s her thing now), and the amount of info given on the current state of Candace Cameron-Bures career and life. So yea, keep on keeping on. I have another season and a half to read before I’m caught up, so I’m out.

    Looks like Dave Coulier found your blog. You don’t need to justify yourself Billy, it’s all good. You’re selflessly doing this for the sake of comedy and if someone doesn’t like it then they should just not read it and watch some more Full House.


  27. BobsYourUncle says:

    I was a fan of Full House as a kid. I like the show but I am aware that it’s a piece of shit show with lame acting, bad story telling and bland characters. Your blog is entertaining and fun and I enjoy it. I don’t hold it against you for writing how much you dislike the show.

    I really doubt anyone who works with the show wrote that letter. As someone who spends a shitload of time on the internet, I’ve seen some pretty intense and obsessive fans who cross the line consistently.

    Continue doing a great job with the blog. It’s made an awful series far more entertaining than it should be.


  28. Corny Robot says:

    Even though I am a fan of “Full House” (it’s a million times better than most of today’s shows, you should definitely see Disney Channel’s shows nowadays), I am also a fan of this blog. I don’t think Candace Cameron-Bure or Dave Coulier wrote that comment. I think it was someone who was really, really passionate about “Full House”, I tell ya what. If it was really them, I’d think they would’ve used their real names instead of “Lauren”. Anyway, keep it up with this comedic blog, as it has cheered me up whenever I’ve been feeling low, and look out for the creepy-eyed PTA lady who keeps trying to get to Joey.


  29. Kenny says:

    I despise Candace and Kirk 2 homophobic religious zealots who give religion a piss poor name.

    Always priceless when they ignore the love thy neighbor passage as well as those who live in glass houses shouldnt throw stones passages.

    This only applies to people who are STRAIGHT in their eyes and I refer to verses as an openly gay ATHEIST so that should tell them something right there.

    Even I understand and comprehend religion better then these 2 hypocrites do.


    • Lisa says:

      Whoa. I think this is kind of the problem with our society. We’ve confused disagreement with hate. When have they ever said they hated (or feared) gay people? They believe that homosexuality is wrong. That is not at all the same thing. Christians believe that they need to love everyone, but that doesn’t mean they have to agree with them. For example, gossip is wrong, but does saying it’s wrong then mean that you hate a person who gossips? I think they DISAGREE with you. I don’t think they HATE you, at all.

    • JohnMo says:

      I am in the same boat, late to the dance, but catching up and enjoying the comments almost as much as the actual blog. I think a lot of people who follow the blog are similar, where the show may hold some kind of place in their heart for nostalgic purposes or some other reason, but who also realize that it sucks/sucked pretty bad. And wasn’t Bob Saget basically the same character on AFHV in the early 90s? SO ANNOYING!!!


  31. asiarobins says:

    I absolutely adore Full House. I really love that show, and have been watching it ever since I can remember. It envisions the perfect family. It’s like nothing could ever go the way you wish it wouldn’t! As much as I love the show, I also love your blog. Your reviews are deliciously amusing, they have me laughing out loud! It’s really great to see something you love from another person’s point of view, and I very much respect your opinions, and your effort to keep up with this blog. Honestly, I’m going to keep reading and enjoying your reviews, no matter how much they may contradict with my own opinion. Keep it up, billysuperstar, I’d love to see you take on another sitcom 🙂


  32. Cocomo says:


    I just felt compelled to add a comment that I love the blog. I loved FH growing up, and I still enjoy it now when I catch reruns. However, I enjoy it not because it’s some sort of fantastic piece of television…honestly, it’s more nostalgia than anything else. But I enjoy it nonetheless, despite its inherently awesome shittiness. Hell, bitching and nitpicking bad shows are one thing that’s so awesome about the internet…I know I’ve blasted all kinds of shows on the message board that I post on (shit, the main reason I watched Terra Nova until its end was because it was fun bitching about it every week, hahaa).

    I would tell you to “ignore the haters,” so to speak, but I feel like I’d have done the same thing you did in this situation. So that being said, obviously I’m WAAAY behind on the blog, as I’m only on season three. But it’s definitely a great way to kill time at work here and there, and most of the time I find your writeups to be hilarious and pretty close to my thoughts as well.

    Anyway, just wanted to post a comment to show the author of this hate mail that there is another person out there that loves reading this blog. Too bad the author isn’t intelligent enough (and doesn’t have any kind of sense of humor) to realize that this blog is all in good fun…not to mention that it has zero impact on the show since, as they acknowledged, it has been off the air for almost two decades.

    Keep up the good work.



  33. williec29 says:

    I like your blog as well and you are hilarious. If there is one criticsm I have with the blog it is the overabundance of language including taking Gods name in vain. You can be funny without throwing g@dd@mn or j@sus chr@st or mf in there.


  34. Ashley says:

    It’s funny your negative reviewer never responded back to you. I loved this show when I was a kid and I watched it every Friday on TGIF. I liked Michelle at first just because she was the same age as me. I loved any character in movies or shows that were my age when I was little. But when she got older she annoyed both my sister and I with everything she got away with. That “DUUUH!” thing wouldn’t have lasted long if we tried it to our mother. Also it was annoying how when they got older most of the plots revolved around her instead of DJ and Stephanie. Stephanie was always my favourite character but I loved DJ just because she was a teenager. In my eyes as a kid, every teen was cool.

    But I’ve watched some of the episodes as an adult for nostalgia reasons and I don’t know how I could have loved the show so much. It’s a terrible show. I know a lot of the shows from the 80s/90s were bad, but this one was the worst. I’ll admit I have a soft spot for Step by Step. I don’t know why because it’s cheesy as well, but for some reason I like it and I always will.


  35. Emaleeyah says:

    I know my comment is forever late and you probably don’t even read these comments anymore but I must say I think your blog is amazing.
    I’ve probably watched every single episode of full house, like I loved that show, but me and my brother are always making fun of it.
    I’m not even joking when I say your blog always brightens my day and I find everything you say is so funny and in my opinion you haven’t said anything untrue.
    How Kimmie Gibbler was your favorite character in the early episodes is interesting though I found her to be obnoxious and just so incredibly stupid its not even funny. Don’t get me wrong though I think shes great just interesting that she’s your favorite. Anyway I don’t want to write an essay I just wanted to share that with you and say I think you’re awesome and you handled that comment very well I would have probably went off on a “yo mamma” rant or something in all honesty. I can’t wait to finish all of your reviews on this show.
    P.S. Family Matters would have been amazing too.
    P.P.S thank you for making this blog ^.^

    Its so funny that just a month ago I was giving my brother a hard time when he asked if any of us had Full House on DVD. Now cut to now and I’m already on the third season. He never watched them growing up so he has to catch up…as for me, I can remember almost every single episode that is reviewed and if I don’t, the screen shots remind me lol now who’s laughing…….Oh I still am, just at this blog and how sucked in I and everyone else has become by it.

    I just discovered this blog and have been reading a few reviews every night for the past couple of weeks as I nurse my baby to sleep. Like you I grew up watching this show for no good reason: I knew it sucked even back then (and I’m about Stephanie’s age). Your blog makes all the time wasted watching this piece of crap show totally worth it- Full House is finally entertaining!!

    My fondest memories of watching full house simply centered on it being a Friday night and the next morning was the amazing world of Saturday morning cartoons. It was like the entrance to 90s tv world for my kid brain. Great work on this blog.

    I grew up in New Zealand and watched this show whenever my parents would let me in front of the TV. I grew up thinking that the Full House was an accurate representation of what American families were like. I thought everyone in America played spin the bottle on their 13th birthday and by comparison thought that NZ birthdays were boring. I have thoroughly enjoying re-watching all the episodes, followed by your blog/reviews and am glad to find that I am not the only person frustrated by the continuity issues!
    Question- was this show funnier when it originally aired? Has humour changed over time? Or have the jokes always been this unfunny?

    I know this is totally years late but I as someone who was obsessed with dogs as a child and now works with them, I have to add this person is also 100% wrong about “Comet becoming Air Bud”. The actual (and first) Air Bud once doubled for Comet in the one episode where Uncle Jesse plays basketball. They were NOT the same dog. In fact even when I was a kid I recognized the fact that the “basketball” Comet (Air Bud) had a much slimmer head and frame that is more characteristic of many pet or not “high quality” bred Golden Retrievers, while the dog who played Comet had a larger frame and blockier head typical of “show quality” Goldens. And really, they need to lighten up.
