    Rumors were swirling last year and now it looks closer to coming to reality. It will be interesting to see how full this cast will be of the original cast members. The Olsen twins have been notoriously reluctant to associate with the show as they moved on to other things, but in my opinion, the show would be better served if they were cast by another set of twins. If they do sign on, they should put a clause to limit or demand extra compensation for the kisses on the mouth Uncle Jessie (John Stamos) is known to plant on them incessantly.

    The new incarnation will star original cast members Candace Cameron-Bure (D.J.), her on-screen younger sister, Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie), and Andrea Barber, who played her best friend, Kimmy Gibbler. Stamos will produce and reprise his role as Uncle Jesse in a guest role, while talks are under way to bring back fellow original stars Bob Saget, Mary-Kate  and Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin.

    Wow. What a bunch of fallen stars. Hurry, make a wish!

    Full House was my least favorite show on the OG TGIF run. Would love to see a Perfect Strangers reunion...

    Wow, that pic is insane.

    In retrospect I would agree, but as a kid, probably not.  -image-

  4. I don't think I'm ready for more Full House. The characters I liked the best were Kimmie and Comet (the dog). Everyone else, eh.

    I was just thinking about what TGIF show or other '80s sitcoms I would want them to follow up with. My pick would be Out of this World. Did Evie ever go to Antareus? I so wish I could freeze time!

  5. OMG, I'd completely forgotten about Out of this World!  I used to watch it all the time.

    Damn, Tangie stole my character I want back.  -image-

    I think if they brought this back as a kind of absurdist parody (Portlandia sketch style) of what the show was, it could really work out to be a groud-breaking spin-off of a show that was a cultural touchstone for our generation. I am excited that Jodie Sweetin will be back on in this role, it was really a shame what had happened to her in comparison to her castmates. I saw she did a short web series with Dave Coulier called "Getting Arrested", but could not find a trace of videos online.

    Here are characters I would want them to bring back.

    Dwayne, Kimmie Gibbler's "steady":


    Comet, their dog.


    Bubba their turtle is finally found in the yard.


    Uncle Jasper (as a complete replacement to Joey Gladstone):


    Papouli (the grandpa). They need to somehow bring him back from the dead for one episode and then kill him off again for everyone to be able to exercise their dramatic chops and tug at our heartstrings one last time.


    Stavros (Uncle Jessie's cousin played by John Stamos). Perhaps also as a substitute to Uncle Jessie.


    But this time he succeeds in winning over Aunt Becky.


    Steve Urkel. He needs to come visit the Tanner family again.


    Teddy, Michelle's friend.


    Gia, Stephanie Tanner's bad influence as a nod to Jodie Sweetin's troubles with addiction.


    Aaron Bailey, they should also kill him off during the Papouli episode.


    The sad music also plays an integral part as a virtual character in the series.

    They also need to resolve this story line that has haunted me since viewing this episode. We the viewers were always assured the girls would always get caught and get in trouble for any little thing that happened and I do not believe Danny Tanner did not eventually notice the hole in the wall that they covered up by moving everything in the room over a few inches. This story line absolutely must be resolved and proper punishment given with additional penalty for years of not confessing with sad music playing at the end.

    Maybe Comet can dig up Papouli's bones.

    They definitely need to sign Gia onto the project... Have Mercy!


    Hopefully Stamos won't be allowed to murder any more Beach Boys songs

    Contemporary Gia (Marla Sokoloff)


  12. I always thought I didn't like the song "Forever" because of Full House, but when I actually heard Dennis Wilson sing it, I was like, oh this is how it should have been sung. Plus, the Uncle Jessie music video is so over the top! I can totally see him doing another Beach Boy song in this new Fuller House.

    Sorry to steal your thunder, AC. You knew which characters were the silver lining to that ridiculous show. I forgot about Teddy and Aaron Bailey. It was always so weird to me how Uncle Jessie was egged on by that kid.

    I know who Stephanie should be married to, old first husband, Harry! He should have been on the show way more.

    Yeah, I think Stamos ruined Forever for our generation.  Maybe if Jesse and the Rippers are trying to be edgy they'll butcher another Dennis Wilson track (written by Charles Manson)

  15. Just saw an article that Lifetime is going to do an unauthorized tv movie for Full House (b/c you know the one they did for Saved by the Bell was so awesome  -image-)

  16. I just want to see the Beach Boys Episode again

    Wow, that's amazing. I don't have any expectations for it after seeing the Lifetime Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story.

  18. Broadway.com announced a musical parody of Full House heading off-Broadway this fall. This show comes from the same group who are currently leading the show, Bayside the Musical (Saved by the Bell parody).

    The show follows Danny after her loses his super power of solving problems with “sensible Dad Speeches.” I really hope they include the ridiculous music that goes with the speeches. You the one that comes on about 5 min. to wrap everything up for the episode.

    The musical will feature such tunes as “This House it Too Full,” “Our Family is Better Than Your Family” and “Kimmy Gibbler Don’t Give a F*ck.”  I'm there!

  19. Lori Loughlin was recently on Fox News talking about the possibility of a full cast reunion

    Lori still looks incredible i just gotta say...
