Storyline

This is a story about sports-broadcaster-turned-morning-talk-show-host Danny Tanner and his three little girls, D.J. (Donna Jo), Stephanie, and Michelle Tanner. Before the show begins, Danny Tanner's wife is killed by a drunk driver, so he needs help raising his daughters. He asks his rock-musician brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis and his comedian best friend Joey Gladstone to move in with them. As the show goes on, Jesse marries Rebecca Donaldson, Danny's talk-show co-host, and they have twin sons, Nicholas Katsopolis. Written by Raffi Nazarian <gamk@yahoo.com>

Goofs

When the series begins, Danny is close to 30 and his oldest daughter D.J. is 11 meaning that Danny and Pam eloped after high school yet Pam got pregnant and Danny was able to go to college and get a job as a news anchor after college and have another daughter (Stephanie) after he finishes school. Michelle is born a year before the series airs (1986). However throughout the series Danny and Joey mention that they both struggled to get dates for their senior proms and in the earlier seasons, Danny admits to always liking Pam since junior high but was too shy to admit it.

User Reviews

Used to be my absolute favorite show.
16 August 2002 | by Registered_UserSee all my reviews

Back in the day, I was crazy about Full House no matter how cheesy I or anybody else regards it now. It's the perfect 11-year-old girl show. My favorite character was always Stephanie, although the Olsen twins are more my age. The network used to show back-to-back episodes every weekday on WGN after school (right after Blossom) and I was in my glory. Much like the X-Files, I went through a stage in my life where everything was Full House related. I even went so far as to tape it. Kimmy Gibler was a favorite of mine, probably because she was such a weirdo and makes me think of many people I know. Never cared for D.J. or Michelle very much and sadly Danny reminds me a lot of my mother who is also detergent crazy. Recommended for nostalgic reasons and to little girls.
