Did You Know?


Initial title of the show was "House of Comics" due to stand up comedians Bob Saget and Dave Coulier living in the house. Decided to change it to Full House (1987) when it was realized it was more a family-orientated show. See more »


In "Half a Love Story" (episode #1.14): when Joey is "cooking" and Stephanie comes in and grabs the Chinese carton, she is holding it by the metal but in the next shot she is holding it by the bottom and it goes back and forth. See more »


Jesse: Joseph, it's finally happened! He's cleaning liquid soap!
Danny Tanner: Don't be silly. I'm just cleaning my rubber gloves.
Joey: Danny, there's no shame in therapy.

Mind Numbingly Bland but I LOVE it!
21 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

In this crazy world in which we live full of overwhelming/underpaid jobs, prejudice/hate, rape/murder, war/torture, and those nutty quirky politicians, we need something to watch to get away from it all. You need something so mind numbingly stupid and bland to put yourself into a quiet peaceful vegetative state.

In the world of "FULL HOUSE" their most terrible disaster would mean nothing to us. Golly, Jessie has a gig tonight and after using his new hair spray his hair won't cooperate! OMG, DJ and the most popular girl wore the same dress to the BIG dance!! Yikes, Michelle is helping Joey do the laundry and used too much soap!!! Don't worry people; it all will work out in the end. PHEW!!!!

The characters of "FULL HOUSE" are just too much. Uncle Jessie with all that hair and strutting like Elvis was just sooooo cool. Uncle Joey just says the funniest things and Danny tries just so gosh darn hard to be a good dad. Then you have those wonderful girls. DJ tries to act like a grown up and know it all, but really still needs help from her Uncles and Dad. Stephanie is just so cute and perky but always has her opinions. Then of course it's those "I wanna pinch those cheeks cause their so darn precious" twins. Boy has those Olsen's grown. Danny, get them some food because they are WAY too thin!!

Of course the acting and writing would never win anyone any Emmy's, but "FULL HOUSE" wasn't trying to prove anything except that they were a wholesome family show and it was. So just sit back and wish your life was as bad as theirs.
