Whatever happened to predictability?
Well, if there’s one thing that seems utterly predictable in our lifetime, it’s that every show we watched as a kid is suddenly coming back with new seasons. We all know by know that Full House is on that list, with the decades-later spin off centering around eldest daughter DJ Tanner coming to Netflix at the end of this month. It’s been utterly bizarre watching the promotion for it over the last few months, particularly considering most of the cast members had all but dropped out of the public eye.
But here we are nonetheless, and now the first full trailer has been dropped. And it looks…jarringly almost exactly like the original show. Both the sets and the casts are just different enough to make you uncomfortable, and the rapid fire catch phrases cut together push just past nostalgia and into “oh no, what is this monstrous occurrence.” And yet…it somehow packs just enough of a nostalgic punch to make tuning in an inevitability. We’re ready, Fuller House. Come at us with whatever nonsense you’ve got. We miss our old familiar friends (waiting just around the be-e-e-e-e-end).
