User Reviews

Nice and cute TV-series.
23 May 2001 | by (Oakwood, Virginia USA) – See all my reviews

This beloved ABC hit comedy had plenty of viewers during the 80's and 90's. The episodes were always funny and interesting. Bob Saget was much better with this than he was with his role on "America's Funniest Home Videos". Bob Saget as a TV sportscaster who was left with three little girls when his wife died suddenly. Into the San Francisco home of his rock 'n' roll brother-in-law Jesse (John Stamos) along with a goofy friend Joey (David Coulier) helped out. This show dealt with growing pains, little lessons, and life in general. This show also featured the sexy Lori Loughlin.
