‘Fuller House’ Reboot Slammed by Critics? Cast Defends Show

Fuller House

The “Fuller House” reboot is about to debut and fans could not be more thrilled to see their beloved 90s family sitcom once more.

However, before the much-awaited season premiere, there have been less-than-kind reviews that have just published.

Netflix recently released a preview of the “Fuller House” to critics. Some critics from various venues posted their comments and most of the reviews have been quite negative. In fact, some were even brutal, according to Fox News.

One of the cruelest “Fuller House” reviews came from Daniel Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter.

“It’s doubtful that there will be a more painful 2016 TV episode than the ‘Fuller House’ pilot, which takes an inexcusable 35 minutes to establish a plot that is just an inversion of the original ‘Full House’ premise,” the THR review stated.

Amidst the negative reviews, cast members – Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), and Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie) defended the show.

Bure said, “The critics never had a good thing to say about Full House and yet it ran for eight years in primetime and then it’s never been off the air for 30 years. So it’s a testament to what the fans want and not what the critics think. If there are any negative review that’s how we feel about it with Fuller House; we did this for the fans and we think they’re going to absolutely love it.”

Sweetin, on the other hand, opted to ignore the less-than-kind reviews and pointed out the revival of the series was all about honoring the loyal fans.

“The fans are excited about the show. We’re not going out there and trying to win an Emmy for Best Drama. We’re a family sitcom that fans absolutely love and adore, and we’re incredibly honored to get to bring that back and I think we’ve stayed really true to that drama,” she said.

“Fuller House” will binge out its entire season on nostalgia on Friday (February 26) on Netflix. The series originally ran from 1987 to 1995 as a comedy series that follows the life of three men who are raising three young girls in San Francisco.
