Full House celebrated the 30th anniversary of its initial 1987 premiere this weekend, so naturally, it felt like a time for many people to look back fondly on their memories of the series. The classic sitcom has developed a rabid fanbase in the years since it went off the air, and it has amassed a massive collection of classic episodes that those fans love to this very day. However, it sounds like certain people close to the production probably wouldn't be as capable of picking out a favorite moment from the series, as Jodie "How Rude" Sweetin recently revealed that she has never watched an episode of Full House in its entirety.
This revelation came during a recent appearance at the PaleyFest Fall TV Preview event in Los Angeles (via EW) in which Jodie Sweetin shocked the audience by admitting that she has never seen a full episode of Full House at any point in the last thirty years. Sweetin apparently doesn't have access to traditional TV in her home (like many of us, she has cut the cord and made the switch to streaming services like Netflix and HBO Go), so she seldom has access to the show's reruns when they come on the air. That said, she would go on to admit that she has seen clips of the show here and there, but thirty years after its original debut, she still hasn't watched a single episode from beginning to end.
It is honestly kind of odd to think about. Even after so many changes have taken place in Jodie Sweetin's life, this is one thing that remains decidedly consistent.
It probably also doesn't help that Jodie Sweetin has remained relatively busy over the course of the last few years. In 2016, she reprised her role as Stephanie Tanner on the Netflix's Full House reboot, Fuller House, and (even in the face of a broken leg) the responsibilities of acting on the show have definitely taken up a fair amount of her time. In addition to her return to the Tanner household, Sweetin also recently took to the Dancing with the Stars stage for the show's 2016 season.

Almost all of the original stars have returned and impressed with appearances on Fuller House. Except, of course, for the Olsen Twins. For a long time, there was some confusion about why they refused to appear, but the definitive answers were previously revealed. To find out why they bailed, head over to the next page.
Even though the original Full House cast and creator did their best to sway Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen to join the Netflix spinoff for a Michelle Tanner (or some other last name), it's likely never going to happen. And the simplest reason is that Ashley stopped acting before hitting 18 years old, according to Full House producer Bob Boyett. Considering Michelle was always played by both twin siblings, a lack of Ashley would mean Mary-Kate would have to take on the reprisal alone, and she obviously didn't jump at the chance.
Fuller House recently debuted the first half of Season 3 on Netflix, and with that release came the news that creator Jeff Franklin has apparently given up trying to convince the Olsen twins to appear on the continuation series. Though John Stamos might continue the fight into future seasons, assuming they happen, Franklin felt that three years of efforts were more than enough, and that it would be up to the business moguls themselves to decide to do it themselves. Because, of course, those ooh-so-recognizable Tanner/Tanner-Fuller house doors will always remain open for Ashley and Mary-Kate's potential return.
