This is a story about a sports broadcaster later turned morning talk show host Danny Tanner and his three little girls, D.J. (Donna Jo), Stephanie and Michelle Tanner. Before the show begins, Danny Tanner’s wife is killed by a drunk driver. So he needs help raising his three little girls. He asks his rock musician brother-in-law, Jesse Katsopolis and his comedian best friend, Joey Gladstone to move in with them. As the show goes on, Jesse gets married to Rebecca Donaldson, Danny’s co host of the talk show. The two have kids of their own, who are twins, Alexander and Nicholas Katsopolis. However, the show is about what happens as the story is going on.
Full House, simply put, is the quintessential corny family sitcom. Much like the adored comedy Saved By The Bell, which was a large part of many of us now college-age kids’ lives, Full House is an invaluable time capsule that takes us back to a much simpler time. Now with the release of the Full House series on DVD in the very reasonable 20-25 dollar price range, we can relive those classic moments again and again. And, again, like Saved By The Bell, it seems that Full House episodes have infinite replay value. Whether you grew up with the series or not, Full House should be a staple of anyone’s DVD collection. It’s a sitcom that is a classic in every sense of the word and for those of us who haven’t seen this show in over a decade, Full House is a welcomed return to our childhood, and the wholesome family values that Danny Tanner imparted to his children and
the millions of viewers that tuned in every week. If you’ve been wondering where all those good, old-fashioned family values on which we used to rely have gone, then one needn’t look any further than Full House.
