The kids from Full House are all grown up and back on our screens as they navigate their way through the trials and tribulations of adulthood and parenthood. With virtually all of the original cast back in action (minus a couple of Olsen's), Fuller House follows DJ Tanner, her sister Stephanie, best friend Kimmy and their kids as they all live together in the family home with plenty of laughs along the way.
Even if you never watched the original show, which aired between 1987 and 1995, you can quite easily jump right into this programme. There are some references to the past but they always they use flash back scenes so it's easy to work out what they are talking about. The writing is funny and endearing and the show is great for kids. What I did like is that it's also a great programme to watch WITH kids so when, as a family, you're trying to find something suitable for everyone then this could easily be it.
There are three seasons available on Netflix with 44 episodes in total, each with it's own storyline with an additional arc that covers the season. It's easy watching. There's nothing taxing or complicated about it. It's just good clean family fun (though some parents complained it wasn't squeaky clean enough) and honestly is really comedic in parts, with jokes aimed at the parents who are also watching. My only problem with it is that I find the character of ‘Kimmy' very annoying – like, over the top annoying which I assume is because that's how she was in the original series. But if you can get over that then you'll be fine.
Overall it's a decent reboot, with some notable guest appearances including New Kids On The Block – that was a blast from the past – and well worth watching with your kids if you're looking for something that won't drive you demented within five minutes – like the horror of having to endure endless slime-making YouTube videos!!
