Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
The laughs continue as three adorable but headstrong girls teach three grown men about growing up in this heartwarming family comedy. Season five kicks off with 4-year-old Michelle (Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen) acting as matchmaker for their widowed dad, Danny (Bob Saget), to try and find a new mom. Jesse (John Stamos) and wife Rebecca (Lori Loughlin) find out they're having twins - but will they agree on a parenting approach? Gail Edwards (It's a Living) guest stars as Danny's new co-host on "Good Day, San Francisco," but will a smitten Danny be able to parlay their "Good Day" relationship to a good-night kiss? The Tanner girls also have kissing on their minds: D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure) fights a rumor at school, and Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) dreams of kissing teen singer Tommy Page (guest starring as himself). Andrea Barber joins the cast as a series regular this season as D.J.'s friend, Kimmy. This house just got fuller!]]>
There are other firsts. In "Easy Rider," Michelle learns to ride a bike and in "Driving Miss D.J.," D.J. gets her learner's permit. In one respect, year five represents a return to the show's roots as the ad agency is no more. Jesse is fronting a band again, while Joey (Dave Coulier) has returned to stand-up, a development that leads to a dream gig in "The Legend of Ranger Joe." Other episodes of interest include "Gotta Dance," in which Danny imagines Stephanie on Broadway (the whole family sings and dances along), and "Play It Again, Jesse," in which Danny's new relationship resembles a certain classic film with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. Guest stars include June Lockhart ("Matchmaker Michelle"), Whitman Mayo ("The Volunteer"), and Mike Love and Bruce Johnston from the Beach Boys (season finale "Captain Video"). With Barber now a regular, the new recurring character is Michelle's pal, Teddy (Tahj Mowry, future star of the WB comedy Smart Guy). --Kathleen C. Fennessy

There's no doubt that a very loyal fan base has accumulated in recent years to help make these DVD sets possible. Longtime viewers, who remember watching the show as kids, have matched up with today's young (and young at heart!) to establish "Full House" as everything it is: a lighthearted, warm, sweet occasionally cheesy but thoroughly entertaining show about what a healthy, happy American family can represent for contemporary society.
Season 5 finds the series at what is pretty much the top of its game, with episodes that are fresh, vibrant, and always fun to revisit. The birth of Jesse and Becky's twin boys is the most obvious highlight of this year, but there are plenty more special moments sprinkled all over the season that can be appealing to everyone. In addition to Joey getting a gig as "Ranger Joe" on a children's show and Jesse struggling to officially launch his music career and support his family, the rapid growth of the three Tanner girls opens up many new storylines. 16-year-old DJ gets her drivers' license, earns her own bedroom at last, and starts growing apart from her father (much to Danny's dismay). 10-year-old Stephanie gets in a heated spelling match with a brainiac classmate, falls head-over-heels for a famous singer, and trains to become a professional dancer (and yes, folks, this is the season where she infamously moves into the bathroom!Read more ›
Michelle (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) enters kindergarten, makes a new best friend, Teddy (Tahj Mowry), and learns to ride a bike. D.J. (Candace Cameron) enters high school. Ready for her own room, she convinces the adults to let Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Michelle share a room. Meanwhile, she also starts to learn how to drive, much to her father's horror. Stephanie competes in a spelling bee and pursues more dance lessons. Joey (Dave Coulier) and Jesse break up their ad agency to focus on their comedy and music respectively, and Joey lands his dream job as the host of a kid's afternoon cartoon show. Danny (Bob Saget) finally makes bachelor of the month and it goes straight to his head. And neighbor Kimmy (Andrea Barber) gets promoted to the opening credits (finally) so she can annoy the family even more.
In addition to the previously mentioned Teddy, two other recurring characters are introduced this season. Danny meets potential love interest Vicki (Gail Edwards) when she fills in while Becky is on maternity leave. She's only in about six episodes here, but she does show up again in later seasons. Similarly, Steve (Scott Weinger) shows up as one of D.J.'s date of the week. For the next two years, he'd be her steady boyfriend.
And a fun trivia note. In the episode "The Devil Made Me Do it," Michelle is visited by her good and bad sides. That's right. We get a couple shots of three Michelle's on the screen at the same time.Read more ›
