I don't think I ever watched a great deal of this, and I never found it really good. But it was okay. Bob Saget played a sportswriter named Danny Tanner, who had three daughters: D.J. (Candace Cameron), Stephanie, and Michelle (a baby at the start of the series, played throughout the show's eight-year run by twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen). When Danny's wife died, his brother-in-law, a musician named Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos), and his best friend, a comedian named Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier), moved in to help raise the kids. Danny eventually got a job on a morning talk show, co-hosted by Becky Donaldson (Lori Loughlin). She eventually started dating Jesse. D.J.'s best friend, Kimmy Gibbler, was fairly annoying. And um, D.J. eventually got a boyfriend named Steve (Scott Weinger). I suppose I always found Joey kind of funny, in a totally cheesy way. And Jesse was kind of cool. I can't really think of anything else to say about the show, except that it was just unbearably saccharine.

In 2016 (two decades after the show ended), a sequel series called "Fuller House" debuted on Netflix. I haven't seen it and have no desire to do so.
