Every famous television show that is looking at a comeback has an enormous advantage, and a bigger challenge, and Fuller House is no exception. Full House, with a last episode aired in May 1995, has a whole generation who grew up on it and are likely to watch its comeback eagerly. But, as is often the case, Fuller House doesn’t rise up to the challenge. For starters, the effort of stringing the past to the present is extremely strained—the same old jokes, catchphrases, songs and even dances don’t work. Really. Sometimes, the phrases you used to throw around as a child may just have fallen dead. And they’re not children anymore; they all look much older and DJ has three kids who everyone has to take care of. Everyone who loved Uncle Jesse, DJ, Uncle Joey, Stephanie, Kimmy and the rest, be ready to be disappointed; for those watching it for the first time, it might be easier to take in an episode or two as long as the lack of script is okay. And what’s worse is Danny, Jesse and Joey are not part of the new series, though they can be credited for occasional guest appearances.
