Welcome to Hell

Off the cuff, you might think that a "Full House" reboot/reprisal/reunion would be the best thing all decade long, but if you actually sat and consider it for a minute, you'll agree: no oh God, no it's not. 

It's been confirmed: John Stamos has announced that "Full House" will undergo a revival, and most of the cast seems to be on board in some way, shape, or form (except for the Olsen twins, because of course not). Even the original producers and writers are said to be returning, and everything is being developed from the ground up on the basis of the original show.

As for why it's not a good idea, come on ... "Full House" was childhood 80's/90's nostalgia magic. "Full House" was the original T.G.I.F. There's no recreating that, and to try in vain will only result in disappointment and letdowns. I mean, we all love ourselves some Uncle Jesse pretty hard, but have you even seen the things he-who's-spearheading-this-whole-thing has been doing lately? Because they involve taking selfies ... naked ones, guys. Naked Uncle Jesse ones.

Do we really want ultra modern naked social media selfies to mar the love we have for a show that practically raised us? No, guys -- the answer is a collective, resounding "no." Please -- let sleeping dogs lie, am I right?

Uncle Jesse is hot. He can post naked selfies all day long as far as I'm concerned.

I think you might be wrong about this... Boy Meets World rebooted as Girl Meets World (original cast as parents) and it seems to be doing quite well. Even got picked up for a second season. So I think if the original writers and creators came back (with full cast) mirroring the template GMW used, it could work. Although, I think I'ld rather have a 2 hour Reunion movie or a 6 hour Reunion Miniseries then a rebooted TV series. Either way it will be fun to see how it develops.

Great idea! I still watch the reruns with my 13 year old daughter. And I am 44, believe it or not there are episodes I missed. Would not miss the Olson twins! But the rest of the cast would be awesome to see again. Especially Uncle Jesse! Bring it back!
