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, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section.
There's Really No Reason Why Anybody Needs to Whip/Nae Nae
How Is It Possible That DJ Tanner's Life Is Exactly the Same as Her Dad's?
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?
The Plot Is Playing It Safe by Being Identical to the Original
The Characters Haven't Really Grown or Changed
Although it's nice that Fuller House is holding on to many of the same values and character traits as its predecessor, we kind of wish that they would have had the characters change and grow a bit more. It doesn't seem like enough of a solid character development that Stephanie Tanner is now a "free-spirit," or that Kimmy Gibbler has stopped wearing neon color-blocked scrunchies. Perhaps more in-depth character changes will be revealed later in the series, but for now, everyone seems like they're pretty much in the same place as they were when we left off with them 20 years ago.
