Full House: Season 1
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
In the pilot, "Our Very First Show," Joey and Jesse, who are both looking for a place to live, move into Danny's townhouse after the death of his wife (who was killed by a drunk driver). The deal is that they'll have to help look after the kids. It's a task for which both men are ill equipped. The fun comes from the trouble the girls get into each week and the many messes Joey and Jesse create in their attempts to set things right--particularly when it comes to cooking, cleaning, and diaper-changing--but also from the cheesy 1980s styles on display, like Jesse's big hair, spandex pants, and string ties.
The Complete First Season includes all 22 episodes plus the original un-aired pilot with John Posey as Danny. (In Franklin's commentary on "Our Very First Show," he notes that Paul Reiser was also considered for the role.) Noteworthy guest stars include Phyllis Diller ("But Seriously Folks"), Stacy Q ("D.J. Tanner's Day Off'), and Candace's brother Kirk "Growing Pains" Cameron ("Just One of the Guys"). While Full House was never a magnet for major awards, the program developed a large following during its long run (while the house got fuller yet), followed by an even longer after-life in syndication. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

If you don't enjoy Full House, don't buy it. Simple as that. But if you do like it, it's a fun dvd set. Can't wait for the 2nd season and the end of Jesse's mullet!
The result is this crazy mix of fun. While all three of the guys try to figure out what they are doing, the girls deal with the changes in their lives. DJ and Stephanie have to share a room. Joey is living in an alcove in the living room. And no one knows how to cook or clean, much less change Michelle's diaper. Combine that with chicken pox, school, and some different personalities, and you have the first season of this fun sit-com.
I've just recently started watching the show via reruns, and I've gotten so addicted I had to get this set. Even being relatively new, I recognized some things that were different this first season. Ok, yes, besides the 80's hair on Joey and Jesse. Compulsive cleaner Danny doesn't know how to clean here. Jesse's last name is Cochran. Joey is sleeping in the living room (something that changes in the wonderful "Joey's Place.") The only catch phrase we really hear is "Have mercy!" DJ's best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber) is around, but only in a hand full of episodes.
However, the heart of the show is still there. Not only does every problem get solved in 23 minutes, but usually with a heart to heart talk. And let me tell you, this show can tug at your heartstrings while making you laugh.Read more ›
Season 1 is very sincere. The creators apparently wanted a show that showed a diverse family could be a healthy family. The future seasons of this series have their roots firmly set up in this season. Hugs, the end-of-every-episode make-up speeches, and hi jinks. I have to say, little Jodie Sweetin stole this season. (The Olsen twins took over in season 2 as the scene stealers.)
My boyfriend bought the first season for me for Christmas. I make a big deal to find the perfect gift for everyone, and he specially reserved to give me this DVD set last as it was the perfect gift for me. I watched the first season in just two days! I love this show.
Yeah, it's corny. So what? In fact, shortly after I watched all of season 1, I bought seasons 2-4! My boyfriend did get me the perfect gift. Do yourself a favor and get this great DVD set too!

This season didn't have one episode below a 5/10!!
The people making this changed 2 doubled sided discs to four single side discs!
More about this dvd set:
The theme song is a longer version, with more images during the them. Personally, I would have preferred the song sung the same way as the re-runs, however it is nice to see more images of the characters than usual.
There are extras- commentary, and trivia. And these episodes are uncut, there are some scenes I don't think I 've ever seen before (and I've seen every episode many times)
My set came with a bonus disc with an episode of Growing Pains and of Step by Step. Some used sets will come with it, but I don't think new ones will.

The picture quality is a little fuzzy. Overall a good, family show. A lot of sexual innuendo in this season compared to others, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars as I do love... Read morePublished 7 days ago by Mich.. M...
Quality could be better, but is ok. One suggestion you should have sales if we buy first season, second one should be half price at least :)Published 8 days ago by vanex
