DVD Review ( Full House: Season 1 )

Full House gets off to people as a "kiddy show", and maybe it is, but it's a great show to stray away from other shows of more adult humor. Full House has some annoying "bonding" scenes, but the show still has some great actors, making for a really fun show for anyone accepting of the shows attitude to watch and enjoy.

Although Full House: Season 1 starts with less than spectacular episodes, the middle and later episodes are absolutely phenomenal and just scratch the surface of how great Full House really is. Virtually every episode from beginning to the end of the season teach a life lesson, and the stories for the most part are really good, especially thanks to Dan Cloutier and John Stamos for excellent acting. Anyone and everyone should sit down and watch Full House, anyone that has a soul will find the show is a great stray from TV shows full of violence, or swearing, and shows life lessons, and some witty humor. Full House is a great show for the whole family. Season 1 is just a great start to a freakishly underrated TV series.
