Between all the versions of CSI and Law & Order and NCIS, there have been plenty of primetime police procedurals to choose from on TV in recent years. Thanks to an episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert that featured Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier of Full House fame, we've gotten a taste of a whole new type of police procedural. Prepare yourself to see the Full House dads in a hilarious new way with this gritty police version of Full House!
I don’t know about anybody else, but I’d certainly tune into Full House Nights. Full House always seemed to focus on the impressionable young Tanner girls learning valuable lessons about life rather than on the adults' senses of justice. Those guys definitely deserved a release of some sort, and Full House Nights explains how they could satisfy their darker sides by tackling the criminal underworld of San Francisco after sundown. Besides, who doesn’t love a spinoff that doesn’t even cost the original show any characters?
The clip wouldn’t have been the same if Danny, Jesse, and Joey hadn’t all been present to menace the Russian gangster, so kudos to the actors for spoofing themselves so epically when their very family-friendly Netflix series has just been released. It’s only a shame that the scene didn’t reveal that the real reason why the Olsen twins couldn’t make it to Fuller House was because they were really investing themselves into roles on Full House Nights.
I’m not sure which part of Full House Nights was my favorite. I did enjoy the gritty cover of the Full House theme song, but the bloopers of John Stamos playing through a flubbed line as Detective Uncle Jesse and Stephen Colbert trying not to crack up from underneath his mobster mustache were pretty hysterical. Dave Coulier busting out the Bullwinkle, Popeye, and Scooby-Doo impressions with a straight face does at least deserve an honorable mention.
The glimpse into what could have been with the Full House Nights spoof didn’t exactly do a lot to explain Fuller House on Netflix, but it was definitely funny enough that some of the adults in the audience not in the targeted demographic might want to check out the series. The three Full House dads clearly know how to bring the funny, and it would be hard not to at least chuckle a little bit while watching them on Fuller House with the memory of Full House Nights still in play.
Fuller House has gotten mixed reviews so far, but it has been renewed for Season 2. If that’s not your type of streaming video, this clip might be.
