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.
