"Whatever happened to predictability? / The milkman, the paperboy, evening TV?"
To answer that question, here's the new, full trailer for the Full House reboot Fuller House. Wherever it went, nostalgia for bygone television and traditional family life in the form of a catchphrase-heavy, self-referential sitcom seems to be back like it never went out of style. And, appropriately, the Full House theme song hasn't changed much. But how predictable will Fuller House really be when it arrives on Netflix later this month?
First, take that song. Now it's sung by a woman, to match the female-led cast in DJ (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber). You can see them all discuss Fuller House on Ellen, and they drop the trailer at about 2:30. They also confirm that even though the Olson twins bailed, Michelle the character is acknowledged.
"Damn," says John Stamos, "we all still look good!" So, for that matter, does the San Francisco backdrop, with a nice new shot of the illuminated Bay Bridge.
But did they really need to make Andrea Barber act like she's still a spazzy tween?
Fuller House premieres February 26 on Netflix, and the biggest difference from the original should be obvious. TV has changed. This time, we'll be binge watching.
