complaints about "full house"....

i just watched a "full house" episode with my siblings over dinner and i was reminded of how annoyingly 'resolving' it is. i suppose every tv family sit-com / drama show is but this one lays it on thick every episode and at the end of the day, one or more of the characters are changed for the better, while at least 1 other person points out the change in them and how significant it is of them to grasp. i'm all for being changed, but the forced 'everything-is-perfect-now-that-i've-learned-this' attitude is just annoying and absolutely hilarious. every tear-pushing, sentimental-jerking moment (the music comes on and everybody's face melts) is there like a bad guarantee. i laughed really hard at these senti-moments and kuldin and chelyan looked at me a little confused. destry smiled back and i shook my head and thanked God i didn't grow up with Uncle jessie, uncle joey and danny tanner for a father. (yet, I watch the show still---maybe b/c it's so bad..I don't know) oh well. no resolving this thought...let's just let it sit out there for Michelle to point and laugh at.

in our younger years, heather and i always enjoyed seeing who could successfully cue the music at the sentimental parts.

Personally, I love Full House. I know that it's INCREDIBLY cheesy, but that's part of the appeal. A lot of really great memories are linked to Full House... I don't think I could ever reject it.

All of your complaints are valid. Like I said, it's definitely cheesy. And I've always hated Michelle. But it's a great slice of distraction, so I'll keep watching.

oh neville. full house is a great piece of early 90's entertainment. of COURSE its going to be cheesy, and if youre going to pick on this show, youre going to need to pick on all the shows like it. Step by Step, Family Matters, THE BRADY BUNCH, there a million of them, and theres no way you can say this show is more cheesy than others. i mean...i was watching Family Matters the other day and the inspirational music came on and Carl learned a lesson about BUYING FURNITURE without Harrietts permission. i mean...seriously....these are all great shows, despite what lessons they try to pawn off on you. this is a show with a man who does a bullwinkle impression every episode, a rock n roll uncle obsessed with elvis and his hair (but who wrote a great song for his wife during their wedding...with a video to follow in a later season), the beginning of the olsen twins career, and BOB SAGGET. i mean...whats not to love!?
