In a continuation of Full House (1987), D.J. Fuller is a mother of three young boys and is a recent widow. D.J.'s sister Stephanie, her best friend Kimmy and Kimmy's teenage daughter all move in to help raise her sons. The house is now a lot fuller.
Fuller House is a spin-off series based on the hit ABC family sitcom Full House (1987-95) created and executive produced by Jeff Franklin for Netflix. D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure) is a recently widowed mom to a 13-year-old named Jackson (Michael Campion), 7-year-old named Max (Elias Harger), and a newborn son named Tommy (Fox and Dashiell Messitt). After realizing she is unable to cope with the demands of holding a full time job as a veterinarian in addition to raising three kids, her sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and childhood best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber), who is also the mother of a 13-year-old daughter (Soni Bringas), offer to move in to bring up her children.

The creators had been pitching this show to various cable and broadcast networks since 2007, but none of the networks thought it would be successful. It took almost seven years before a distributor, Netflix, finally stepped forward in support of the series. See more »
In the original series, when Nicky and Alex were born, Jesse built a room on the left (from the viewers' perspective) by the stairs and next to the bathroom. In the reboot, their old room is now on the opposite side of the attic where the closet originally was, and is also quite a bit smaller than the original room. See more »
I grew up watching full house and being the same age as Stephanie, I related to her quite a bit. I loved growing up with the show and seeing it when new shows came out and then when I had my two daughters, we watched all the reruns of it on Nick. They fell in love with the show as well. I knew it was a clean, family friendly show that I didn't have to worry about.
When I found out that Fuller House was coming out, not only was I so excited about it, but my kiddos were too. When I got home the night that it premiered on Netflix, we couldn't wait and watched five episodes.
Don't get me wrong, there are funny pieces and the kids and Kimmy are the best part of the show. But it isn't the same. It definitely is not family friendly.
There is so many sexual innuendos and cursing that I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep watching with my kids. This made me sad because I was hoping for a clean, family, friendly show for them that we could watch as a family. Unfortunately, it did not turn out that way.
I will say that I love the kids that play in the show--they were perfectly cast. And Kimmy hasn't changed a bit. I love that part of her. She was always a goof ball and still is. I wish I could rate this higher, but it wasn't what I was expecting. Still good to watch, just be aware that there are some comments, scenes and words that are not family friendly if you care about letting your kids watch that.
