Full House is BACK and Better Than Ever!

If you’re a fan of Full House you’ll be ecstatic to know that the cast just reunited to give us another round of excitement in Fuller House!

Since writing this blog and viewing an episode, this is NOT a good show to watch. I will be doing an updated blog to explain why.

Moms, do you remember the exciting series called TGIF (Thank God It’s Friday)?

I loved the shows that aired on Friday nights while growing up as a kid. After doing the farm chores, our entire family would watch those four hilarious shows in our living room while mowing down on pop corn! One of our favorites was Full House with crazy sisters – D.J., Stephanie and Michelle Tanner, studs – Jesse, Joey, Danny and that crazy nut-of-a-neighbor Kimmie Gibbler! I don’t watch much television today because nothing seems to compare to the sweet shows I watched years ago!

I met Candace Cameron-Bure while speaking together on a Focus on the Family Mother/Daughter Bahamas cruise several years ago. Meeting her made me miss the series even more, but when she shared how she needed to put her acting career on hold after becoming a mom, it made sense. Today, Candace is back to acting! For those of you TGIF fans, I have some killer news! D.J. Tanner is returning with the entire crew (minus the twins) in the new series Fuller House which airs on Netflix, February 26! Yay!

Here’s a short teaser to get you pumped!

Today’s “entertainment” (which most of it is anything but entertaining), offers many shows that are rude, crude, violent, sex-saturated and full of foul language. Like I want to spend an hour watching people get murdered or have affairs. Fuller House however, is a great option which will allow us moms to enjoy a show we fell in love with as a kid with our very own munchkins! The new twist to this series, is that widowed D.J. will be raising her three boys with the help of her sister Stephanie and single mom friend, Kimmie. The guys will drop in along with Rebecca in some guest appearances throughout the season. It promises to be a clean family-show just as it’s earlier version from the 80s, which is so needed in our society today!

Why is it important for us to watch clean, uplifting TV shows?

Like I’ve shared with thousands of kids and parents over the years, I believe we are what we “eat.”

Laughter is the best medicine and if I’m having a rough day, watching an uplifting, hilarious show will always leave me in a better mood than the other negative options. Teens have told me they watch graphic, violent shows because they can relate to the characters and their aggressive, depressive behaviors because this is how they feel on the inside. 81WQFeFiLEL._SL1500_When I ask them if these shows made them feel better after watching, I always got a resounding “no” for an answer. That is when I challenged them to watch shows that will help them look at the positives in life, get help with their struggles, heal be honest and laugh through the process. It works.

So thank you Fuller House in advance, for the enjoyment you will bring in our home once again. If you’d like to get your hands on the old Full House TV series you can get it here! Let’s hope Hollywood catches on that we want more shows like this, when the ratings for “Fuller House” skyrocket in February!

    I’m curious what your thoughts were after it was released on Netflix. I watched 2 1/2 episodes and turned it off. In my opinion, it was not the “wholesome family show” I was hoping for. Not in the least.

      You’re right on and I posted quite a bit on social media about it, but I should definitely do another follow up blog post on this show seeing I’m being asked the same question multiple times! Very disappointed in the behaviors promoted, short skirts, boobs and I could go on and on. This was a major TRICK to tell families it was a family show and better than the first round AND show us clips NOT including the stuff we said here. Not cool! No watching this on our end either!
