One of the funniest and well-made episode in the whole entire show!
17 August 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode is one of the best in the whole entire show. It is funny and entertaining, well-written and has so many confusing moments which make you laugh. It revolves around Danny inviting Cindy and Rusty over for a barbecue and Rusty being the devious boy he is decides to write a secret admirer letter to D.J unfortunately things don't go the way there supposed to and that's your episode. For starters I'm not a big fan of the confusion comedy type of scenario's but god this one is awesome and a really fun ride!

The performances: {IN EPISODE NOT SHOW} John Stamos excels, Bob Saget is good, Dave Coulier is charming in his role, Candace Cameron Bure is decent, The Olsen twins shine, Jordan Christopher Micheal is awesome, Debra Stipe is OK, Jodie Sweetin is great, Lori Loughlin was not that good, Andrea Barber is a delight.

The story of the episode is very well-written the idea was sharp-minded and very good, the direction is handled well by Joel Zwick.

Overall, this episode is handled well and is very entertaining don't miss this one out! 9/10, 94% or A no + or - just an A...

Also check out the show it is a very good show!
