Fuller House EXCLUSIVE Sneak Peek and a Trip Down Memory Lane #StreamTeam

Posted by: on Feb 22, 2016 | One Comment

I have to start this post by saying that Full House DEFINED my childhood. When they announced that the show was ending  in 1995, 10-year-old Jordana actually wrote passionate, heart-wrenching letters to the studio and the producers begging and pleading that they please please please reconsider. Didn’t they know how much the show meant to kids like me? How important it was for us to have role models like the Tanner Girls to look to? How else would I learn my way through being a tween- Blossom was going off the air, too! I cried my little heart out when I watched the final episode. I will NEVER forget how I felt when I watched the cast take their final bows. I was heart-broken, and I felt like I had lost my best friends in the world.

My first memory of Full House was my mom pulling 5-year-old me out of bed one night to let me know that there was a special show on TV about a family with girls my age. Yes, we were a little late to the party, but my mom KNEW there was just something too special to be missed, and so started my love affair with the Tanner family. I looked up to DJ, related to Stephanie and laughed at cute little Michelle. We used to argue over who would play which sister on the playground at school during recess (everyone wanted to be Michelle, but I was cool with playing Stephanie). Even the secondary characters felt like my close friends: everyone from Michelle’s buddy, Teddy (I cried when he moved away) to bad-girl Gia (I secretly wished I had a friend like her) left a footprint in my young heart and mind.

Needless to say that when Netflix offered me a chance to watch the first 6 episodes of their new series, Fuller House, in advance, I jumped out of my seat and danced around the room. I called my husband immediately to tell him the BIG news, and you better believe that I had the biggest smile plastered on my face for the rest of the day! (Some of you may have also seen my ecstatic social media posts to the same effect!) As a member of the Netflix Stream Team, we are often given perks as thanks for our participation, and regardless of some “big ticket” items we may have received over the years, THIS one has taken the cake for me!

I can now tell you that Hubby and I have watched the first six episodes of Fuller House, and neither of us can wait until February 26th when the entire first season is released on Netflix! Just seeing the set of the Tanner house on my screen again gave me goosebumps and filled my eyes with tears of joy! Fuller House is full (pun most definitely intended) of memories, smiles, tears and LOTS of hugs. We also both agree that the kid who plays Max single-handedly makes this show worth it! Keep your eye on this kid! He’s going places!

About Fuller House:

In Fuller House, the adventures that began in 1987 on Full House continue, with veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron-Bure) recently widowed and living in San Francisco. D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and D.J.’s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona, all move in to help take care of D.J.’s three boys — the rebellious 12-year-old Jackson, neurotic 7-year-old Max and her newborn baby, Tommy Jr.

While you’re waiting for your own chance to watch Fuller House (this weekend), I have an EXCLUSIVE behind-the-scenes sneak peak video from Netflix to share with you all. I hope it fulfills that Full House fix for you while you wait!

Also, some of the Fuller House characters are getting their own, personalized Netflix “collections” as part of the launch celebration. Check out  TV Time for the Fam and other Fuller House-inspired title collections to find something everyone can agree on:
