'Fuller House' roundtable: Kings and aces

Season 1 | Episodes 7 & 8 | “Ramona’s Not-So-Epic Party” & “Secrets, Lies and Firetrucks” | Aired Feb 26, 2016

The EW Community contributors have been excited about Netflix’s Fuller House for some time now. This week, Erin Conley and Terri Clark talked about episodes seven and eight.

Erin: Episode seven is when we finally get to see Gibbler Style Party Planning in action, as Kimmy plans a 13th birthday party for Ramona. And pretty much everything that could possibly go wrong goes wrong. Also, Kimmy and Fernando are dancing around getting back together, and he continues to be the most cringe-worthy part of this entire show to me.

Terri: I love Fernando! Yes, he’s a caricature, but in many ways, so is Kimmy. I’m a big Fernimmy fan. Juan Pablo di Pace is hilarious and hot.Read More

'Fuller House' roundtable: Mamacita Del Amor

Season 1 | Episode 6 | “The Legend of El Explosivo” | Aired Feb 26, 2016

The EW Community contributors have been excited about Netflix’s Fuller House for some time now. This week, Erin Conley, Terri Clark, and Reed Gaudens chat about the sixth episode.

Erin: In my opinion, episode six definitely took a bit of a turn for the ridiculous. The main storyline involved the whole family (including Tommy, for reasons that make zero sense—maybe Joey wasn’t available to fly in to babysit?) to Lucha Kaboom, a pretty weird wrestling match.

Terri: Guess that’s the difference with having boys—jumping off of roofs, body-slamming your little brother, and chicken wrestlers.Read More

'Fuller House' roundtable: The naughty plumber and the lonely neurosurgeon

Season 1 | Episode 5 | “Mad Max” | Aired Feb 26, 2016

The EW Community contributors have been excited about Netflix’s Fuller House for some time now. This week, Erin Conley, Terri Clark, and Reed Gaudens chat about the fifth episode.

Erin: This was certainly a pretty packed episode, featuring an … interesting, rather classy version of Coachella. I’ve never been, but the Fuller House version seemed much cleaner than the actual version. More champagne and private jets, less Bud Light and Porta-Potties.

Reed: Who knew DJ Tanner was a big enough deal that she could headline Coachella?

Erin: Max even got a cute moment to shine.Read More

'Fuller House' roundtable: Dog day afternoon

Season 1 | Episode 4 | “The Not-So-Great Escape” | Aired Feb 26, 2016

The EW Community contributors have been excited about Netflix’s Fuller House for some time now. This week, Erin Conley, Cristina Iskander, and Reed Gaudens chatted about the fourth episode.

Reed: My favorite story of episode four was Stephanie’s first love interest. Or, well, DJ’s potential love interest too. They’ve started to open up their worlds outside the home.

Erin: I mostly enjoyed seeing DJ’s pet clinic after hearing so much. I do have some serious questions about how it’s run, considering how quickly she put Stephanie in charge with no training, but I am here for any set that involves a random pug in the waiting room.

Cristina: Yes, please! The first thing that stood out to me in this episode was when Stephanie was getting exasperated with Tommy looking up at the ceiling. I felt like I was watching Jodie Sweetin in the past AND future. That’s exactly how Younger Stephanie would have reacted.Read More

'Fuller House' roundtable: Time of my life

Season 1 | Episode 3 | “Funner House” | Aired Feb 26, 2016

The EW Community contributors have been excited about Netflix’s Fuller House for some time now. This week, Erin Conley, Cristina Iskander, and Reed Gaudens chat about the third episode.

Erin: The first thing that struck me about this episode was how Joey just casually flew in from Vegas to babysit for a night. That’s dedication.

Cristina: Yes! I also have to admit that seeing him—and the new kids—in the Tanner doorway did make me feel all warm inside. But did he really have to bring Mr. Woodchuck?Read More

'Fuller House' is full of former soap stars

For some people, this past weekend was all about the Academy Awards. For others, it was the upcoming Leap Day, followed by Super Tuesday. But for TV viewers of a certain age and generation, the last weekend in February 2016 was the weekend all 13 episodes of Fuller House, the sequel to the ’80s/’90s hit Full House, dropped on Netflix.

These superfans (and those who tuned in just for the curiosity factor; some news outlets are attributing the broadcast networks’ overall 3% viewing-number drop on Friday to binge-watchers foregoing TV for some nostalgic TGIF action) were presumably thrilled to see Danny, Jesse, Joey, DJ, Stephanie, and Kimmy. (Pointedly, there was no Michelle, played by either Mary-Kate or Ashley Olsen, except in flashbacks.) But for soap fans, there was an extra nostalgia factor, as a good part of the cast—and several guest stars—got their starts on daytime TV.

In fact, Fuller House drew attention to this pedigree when Jesse (played by John Stamos) announced that he was moving to Los Angeles to become music director on his favorite soap opera, General Hospital.Read More

'Fuller House' roundtable: Sister wives

Season 1 | Episode 2 | “Moving Day” | Aired Feb 26, 2016

The EW Community contributors have been excited about Netflix’s Fuller House for some time now. This week, Erin Conley, Tamar Barbash, and Terri Clark chatted live as they watched the second episode.

Erin: This shot from the point of view of the fridge is a bit strange.

Terri: Having Ramona—a tween non-family member—move in will be an added challenge.Read More

'Fuller House' roundtable: The return of the Tanners

Season 1 | Episode 1 | “Our Very First Show, Again” | Aired Feb 26, 2016

The EW Community contributors have been excited about Netflix’s Fuller House for some time now. This week, Erin Conley, Tamar Barbash, and Terri Clark chatted live as they watched the first episode.

Tamar: I feel like I should preface this conversation with the fact that I don’t really like the original Full House. I watched it as a kid, so there’s a lot of nostalgia attached to it for me, but as an adult, I don’t enjoy watching it in syndication. Still, I am weirdly excited to revisit these characters and see where they’re at.

Erin: Interesting! See, I love the original—my earliest TV-related memory is discussing the promo for the series finale with a kindergarten classmate. (We were very concerned about Michelle after her horse incident.) And I may or may not own the complete series on DVD as an adult.

Terri: I too am a fan of the original, and I introduced my daughter to the show when she was a young teen. She’s 18 now, and we’re both excited to see the revival.

Erin: Oh man, this intro. I’m so excited.

Tamar: The fact that everything looks exactly the same is very fun.

Terri: How I wish I’d been in that studio audience!

Back on the boob tube: Fall 2015 TV shows

Looking at the fall 2015 TV schedule, we can’t but help but notice a number of our favorite actors are making notable returns. Some of them are transitioning off recently wrapped series; others are stepping into starring roles for the first time in years; one is moving from the movies; and another is walking out from behind the camera.

Here’s where you can find a few of your faves back on the boob tube:

Bllod & Oil

Don Johnson hasn’t had a starring role on a hit show since Nash Bridges, but all that could change with a little Blood & Oil. As Hap Briggs, he’s a legendary North Dakota oil titan who intends to leave a legacy second to none. During a massive boom, a young upstart named Billy LeFever (Chase Crawford) steps into the fray and earns Briggs’ grudging respect, something even his son Wick (Scott Michael Foster) can’t do. Impressed or not, Briggs won’t let anything or anyone keep him from being the Baron of the Bakken. (ABC; premieres September 27 at 9/8C)Read More
