Oh, No!
17 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Full House is a shameful excuse for a TV show.I mean, The Big Bang Theory is an awful show, but I still gave that one a 2 star review because it sometimes (very rarely) makes me laugh. However, this show isn't inventive in any way, and it sure as hell isn't funny. This is a show that has HYPNOTIZED my generation, so much so that Netflix is reviving the show under the name "Fuller House" (KILL ME!). This show is the kind of show that your parents turn on if they want you to shut up, so a lot of kids around my age grew up watching it, and they see it as a "childhood classic". However, if they were to watch it now, they'd see how trite and pandering it is. The whole show just revolves around cute children doing cute things. Seriously, they have not one but TWO sets of twin children in this show. Even TV shows like Arthur had characters that were unique and seemed like they could be real people, whereas this is just a perfect family that has the most first-world problems I've ever heard. And, as I've mentioned before, the jokes aren't even funny. "The baby's sleeping like a baby"............ Um, where's the joke? I honestly don't understand it. And, all the jokes are on the same level as bad. Listen, if you like this show, that's okay. It's not your fault. It's your parents fault for being terrible, terrible people and turning on this garbage instead of something that had actual substance like Batman: The Animated Series.
