You knew the reviews for ‘Fuller House’ weren’t so great — and John Stamos knows too. Uncle Jesse himself stopped by ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ on March 3, and read through some of the most harsh reviews. (And hey, they still got picked up!)
“How f–king rude?!” That’s how John Stamos feels about the way the critics reviewed season one of Fuller House. (You can read our review here.) During Late Night with Seth Meyers, not only did the host and John read some of the reviews and call out the authors by name, John also admitted he’s watched the porn parody. You have to watch this movie.
Starting off the interview, Seth Meyers told John that Full House has “never been a critical darling” — which is definitely true, even in the original. “What’s the opposite of ‘darling’?” John added, before pulling out his glasses to read some not-so-nice reviews of the Netflix reboot.
The first one they read is The Hollywood Reporter’s, which throws out a little dig. “It’s doubtful that there will be a more painful 2016 TV episode than the Fuller House pilot,” they wrote. John simply referenced The Revenant in his response, saying, “He was being mauled by a bear when he wrote that. You’ll love episode two, Daniel.” He also defends the rest of the season again, saying, “It’s a pilot! How f–king rude, right?”
The Washington Post‘s review is next: “There’s a point where nostalgia becomes more like necrophilia, and Fuller House immediately crosses that line.” John and Seth clear up what necrophilia is, which is hysterical, then John takes a dig at the author. “Is necrophilia if you get screwed by a dead magazine?” he asked. Ouch!
AV Club didn’t go that mean, writing, “Netflix’s Fuller House is like a porn parody without the porn.” Of course, this prompted John to bring up the actual porn parody. “There’s a real porn that just came out,” John said. “It’s very specific with the catch phrases… I binge watched that forty times.” Well, good to know John!
The last review read went to The New York Times: “The series begins as a sitcom family reunion, it becomes a self-conscious, dated, and maudlin reminder of the ceaseless march of time and your inevitable demise.” To that, John answered, “James, it’s Fuller House, not Room.”
He later did make a good point. “You know what, the fans loved the show — and after five days, Netflix said, ‘let’s do a second season.” And we have to say, we’re pretty excited about. So, did you love Fuller House or do you agree with the critics?
