From Full to Fuller House

I used to wish I could ride with Michael in K.I.T.T. and help him solve mysteries and right wrongs.

I pretended I was Ricky Stratton's long lost brother as his dad rode the train into the living room.

When Arnold said "What are you talkin' about Willis" I'd laugh like I didn't know it was coming even though I did.

When Jan always got the short end of the stick to Marsha I felt bad for her like she was my own sister.

The shows we watch become a part of our lives. They are a microcosm of the things that make us go through so many emotions as we vicariously watch their lives on the other side of the screen. We root for them to triumph and feel for them when they fail. We yell out to the screen "Don't do that!" even though we know it won't make a difference. Soon, these people start to feel like our own family.

This is especially true when it is a show we grow up watching. All I have to utter is "Everywhere You Look..." and you'll be singing the theme song. You sang along to it as a kid and despite everything that has happened in your life you can still sing it by heart. I am of course talking about Full House.

Streaming to you in this Netflix Original, you can relive the days you spent with the Tanners on Fuller House. This time it's DJ Tanner-Fuller trying to raise three boys with the help of her sister and the ever present Kimmy Gibbler who is also a single parent. It's funny and heartwarming with just the right amount of 1990s references to the old show.  You'll be rooting for them again in no time and saying "You got it dude" just like old times.

Episodes will appear on February 26th on Netflix but to get a sneak peek at the show, watch the video below and check out the Netflix themed lists for more shows you and your family will love.
