'Fuller House': Is It Worth The Hype?

Here's the thing: You have to realllllllly love Full House to like Fuller House.

People were beyond geeked for the new version of Full House to show up, but from what we're realizing in the first few minutes is how we've grown from the days of old. What seems to be happening, in their defense, is that they are laying it on thick BECAUSE THEY CAN.


15 minutes in, they have already made every joke that you expected, including making reference to "Michelle running her fashion empire," and all of the ridiculous throwback jokes, including how the 3 men of the house used to diffuse the girl's arguments.

Where they really jump the shark is "DJ Tanner" aka Stephanie, throwing on New Kids On The Block, and the entire cast begins dancing. That might have been where they lost me. Then the group sing along closed it, otherwise leaving it uncomfortable, but at the same time, squishy heartwarming.

I won't give you a play by play after that, but what it's coming down to is this: Have the times changed so much that a wholesome show like Fuller House is just too cheesy anymore? In 2016, we're used to sex, murder, witty humor, and a lot less laugh tracks (unless you count The Big Bang Theory). 

So will the show last after this first season? We'll have to wait for the numbers to truly find out.
