We're definitely a little skeptical about the reboot of Fuller House that's set to air on Netflix in late February 2016. It's not that we aren't excited; it's just that we've been burned by hotly anticipated sequels before. (Does Anchorman 2 ring any bells?) Sequels and remakes almost never live up to the original, and the premise of Fuller House doesn't quite seem unique enough to forge its own path without the ghost of Full House looming in the background.
You've all been wondering: Is Fuller House good? Well, we have some predictions that will help you make up your mind. It looks like the show is going to be a carbon copy of the original, which could easily turn the series into yet another disappointing remake. Having the characters reuse the same catchphrases might be charming at first, but listening to a grown woman whine about "how rude" her family is will probably get annoying very quickly. And don't even get us started on the ridiculous "Whip/Nae Nae" video that the Tanner sisters and Kimmy Gibbler shared on the show's Facebook page.
Do you think Fuller House is going to live up to the hype? Check out this list of reasons why Fuller House is probably going to be bad. When you're done, vote on what seasons were actually enjoyable to watch.
What are the odds that Danny Tanner and DJ Tanner would lead such parallel lives? What are the odds that the daughter of a widower, forced to look after his ever-growing family in a small, suburban house would grow up to live out the same fate? We get that they're trying to draw a parallel that viewers will relate to, but come on. Couldn't they have been just a little more imaginative?
In the most-discussed piece of news surrounding the Netflix reboot, Mary-Kate and Ashley have declined to be in the show. Executive producer, Bob Boyett, told PEOPLE magazine that, "Ashley said, 'I have not been in front of a camera since I was 17, and I don't feel comfortable acting.' Mary-Kate said, 'It would have to be me, because Ashley doesn't want to do it. But the timing is so bad for us."
We're kind of bummed out about the idea of the Tanner family sans-Michelle. She was the best character because she clearly had the best sense of style, the best jokes, and the most adorable one-liners in the entire series. The idea of Fuller House happening without Michelle's signature, "You've got it dude!" is incredibly bleak, especially for fans of her loud '90s sweaters.
