Finding someone who didn't sit in front of the television and was delighted with Full House (known in Brazil as “Three is too much”) Is very rare, so I believe that basically the whole population celebrated when the Netflix announced Fuller House, a series derived from the longing Full House.

I watched the entire season and I can sum it up in just one word: nostalgia. It was clear that they invested heavily in bringing the old series to the fore, for that they used the actors, the very similar premise and even flashbacks with scenes from the predecessor.

That worked? Well, yes, if you analyze that the proposal was exactly that, but there is a small feeling that something is missing. It is very fun to see all the references of Full House while watching the episodes, to vibrate with each participation of the old cast and the strips with those who did not accept to participate (Hello, Olsen sisters), but it is not funny, or send the same message of the original.

In the first episode, the entire cast comes together (almost entirely, since Olsen is now dedicated to the fashion world and declined the invitation), but not for long, since most have either changed or are changing now to form a career in another place. The exception is the newly widowed DJ Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure), who doesn’t know how to reorganize and care for their children, Jackson (Michael Campion), Max (Elias Harger) and Tommy( Dashiell  and Fox Messitt) alone. Soon, your sister Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and her best friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) decide to move to the house (which the father gave up selling, of course) and help DJ This pilot starts exactly as the predecessor pilot started and has almost the same name, so we have an idea of how it will be Fuller House.

And that's how you keep the entire season, a journey through time. Starting from the opening, which is the same as Full House, the series has in every episode something of the old, scenes, references or special appearances blending with the new adventures of the now adult cast. The kids here don't work as well as they used to, maybe it's because we're used to seeing child protagonists in series, like Disney, for example, and that may have broken the spell a little.

As I said earlier, it is a delicious nostalgia that leads you to practically swallow that first season in record time, but the question remains: how long can Fuller House survive with the plot of a 90's series?

There is a huge repetition of the script, which relives many situations of the old series. Even though they are far ahead, DJ's children constantly go through the same problems that children went through in the 90's, giving them the chance to have the famous conversations and mentions of old events. However, Fuller House invests much more in comedy, unlike Full House who, despite having a lot of comic relief, always preached a moral lesson in his episodes (packed with emotional music to ensure that the audience understands that the time has come for the beautiful message).

I'm sure that for fans only the opportunity to see the evolution of the little ones Full House and being able to see the old adventures again is enough, but there are times when it really tires, especially when they decide to relive DJ's love triangles. The future of production is uncertain, since there is no guarantee that nostalgia will be able to arrest the audience, however it is wonderful to have the chance to practically review the work that marked our childhood.
