The ceaselessly inventive minds that brought us Fuller House have done it again — no, we're not talking about the news that the show was renewed for a second season on Netflix, and neither are we referring to the porn parody "Full Holes." Rather, today we bring you news of a different kind of reboot, Full House Nights, which promises to be dark and gritty in all the ways the original was featherweight and saccharine.
"It's scum of the earth stuff," star Bob Saget explained to Stephen Colbert on The Late Show, "stuff people love: drugs, sex, murder, murder-sex — you know."
The show stars Uncle Jesse, Uncle Joey, and Danny Tanner as detectives who, after putting the kids to bed, hit the streets of San Francisco to solve crimes. Oh, and did we mention, Colbert co-stars?
In case you haven't figured it out already, Full House Nights is a piece of late-night sketch comedy that aired last night to promote the actual Netflix show. But, with opening credits that seem like a mash up of NYPD Blue and The Wire, with lots of overheard shots of SF at night, we have to admit it actually looks kinda good.
Give it a watch below. The good stuff starts about 55 seconds in.
