Highlight: Fuller House

The trailer for the much awaited re-boot of Full House was so cheesy, that it’d put Swiss fondue to shame and we wouldn’t want it any other way.

Banking on an overwhelming sense of nostalgia, Netflix’s bold decision to re-live the exploits of the Tanner family, with a clever plot-tweak is guaranteed to have the loyal fans of show’s previous instalment tuning in.

The show will centre on the oldest sister DJ, widowed mother of three, returning to her former Californian abode, trying to re-start her life. Much like the original show’s premise, she’ll have the help of her family.

While massively aged since the show’s finale episode, over a whopping twenty years ago, the trailer seems to show that much of the old guard returning to their famed brand of cheesy family humour, morals and a whole lotta love.

The absence of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, will leave some of the returning viewers with a tiny hole in their hearts, but considering how Michelle would be in her early working years, it seems natural that she wouldn’t feature

As much as many expect this to be the second coming of one of the most fabled American TV families, there is a risk involved when trying to fix what’s not broken. While it will be refreshing to see the gender roles reversed, the need to introduce the new characters might be overshadowed by focussing on those that made the show what it is.
