Full House - Show Review
★ ★ ★ ★
Hey guys! I’m going to review my favorite show in the history of forever today.
I don’t exactly know why this show means so much for me. I turned it on this morning (I have all 8 seasons jUDGE ME) and an episode came on about DJ’s (the first born girl) first day of middle school. I remember watching this episode back then when i was in 2nd or 3rd grade, and it taught me a lot. DJ gets outed at her school because she’s a 6th grader and she isn’t dressed like the
slutty girls in her grade. Then, the next day, she decides to dress like them and put on a ridiculous amount of makeup. Her dad stops her, like any dad of a 6th grader would, and tells her to go change. She explains to her dad that she was made fun of, and she learns that she doesn’t need to dress like them to fit in. Then she gets a lesson in makeup from her aunt Becky that tells her “less is more” when it comes to makeup. I know this sounds so cheesy, but I kept that less is more makeup idea in my head somewhere and to this day i dont wear heavy makeup. People tell me a lot that theyre glad i dont wear heavy makeup like a lot of people my age, and i’m glad i dont either.
The show has all different relationships, from a guy who dates around (then settles down), to a guy that barely dates, to a dad taking care of all his children without a mother figure, to a divorced grandma, etc. The dad taking care of his children used to stick out for me a lot, because my mother used to work like crazy while my dad stayed home and took care of us. (He later got a job full time like my mom, but at that moment i felt super connected to this show). Maybe that’s why i love it so much.
It’s really cheesy and has life lessons packed into every episode. I’ve been watching it for as long as I remember. They used to play episodes at 11 o’clock each day in the summer. My mom used to let us watch an hour of TV a day and I would always watch Full House. Then I would go play with my friend across the street all day. That was the best summer of my life. (go 11 year olds!!!!!!) Maybe that’s why i love it so much.
Okay now’s the part where I convince you to watch it, right? It’s hilarious and a lot of the characters (ie stephanie, the middle child) are brilliantly sarcastic and I love every bit of it. Also, if you were like me, and your parents worked most of the time and didn’t have time to teach you all the things they wish they could, it was an entertaining show that taught you right and wrong. A lot of people tell me I have a good heart, and I believe this show developed me into what I am today. I know this might sound silly, but I feel a great emotional attachment to this show. Maybe that’s why i love it so much?
Ive been saying, “Maybe that’s why I love it so much” a lot in this post, because I really don’t know why I love it so much. I don’t like cheesy things now, but maybe that’s because I feel like I can’t love anything cheesy unless it’s this show. Oh gosh, now i feel like i’m confessing my undying love for this show. unrequited love, people. it’s a glorious thing.
If you’re not going to watch it, I highly recommend showing it to your kids; if you choose to have them. I have so many cousins that are ages 2-9 that I see regularly, and they love television. I assume that thirst for electronics will do nothing but flourish in the years to come. So, if they want to watch TV and you don’t want them to watch a show with bad things in them, watch this one. Believe me, you wont want them too. Just a cousin/aunt and i feel like it’s my job to guard them from bad things and teach them good. But I know that I shouldnt guard them from bad things, i should show them the bad and tell them how to make it good. Which is exactly what this show is.
You’re probably thinking, “hey, what’s wrong with you, you only did four stars??” well, i have a weird obsession with thinking things will get better, so even though this show is one of my favorite things, i will give it four stars. there might be something out there in the future that’s even better than full house to me so i can’t risk the five stars. which is a big deal, because i hardly give anything four stars. it’s mainly 2-3.
Now that i’ve rambled for what seems like forever, i suggest you go watch the show. you wont regret it. wait, maybe you will, i dont know. its a feel good show for the whole family!!!!
Have a great day!
