After eight years, Full House hadn't run out of steam, but family sitcoms were on the wane. Though the show was never the coolest or most cutting-edge, its life lessons still apply. Sometimes it could even be unexpectedly insightful, as when Danny (Bob Saget) remarks, "When kids seem the least lovable, that's when they need love the most." He jokes that he stole the line from his Ziggy calendar, but truer words were never spoken, and the Tanner household was never short on love. Fans who missed the final episode ("Michelle Rides Again") will also be pleased to find that the writers came upon a clever way to unite Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen onscreen. That's right: two Michelles--in her imagination, of course. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Top Customer Reviews
1. Comet's Excellent Adventure
Jesse is so self absorbed in his own problems with "The Rippers" that he mistakenly tells Michelle she can walk the dog by herself.
2. Breaking Away
Letting go of your babies is hard to do as Jesse and Becky find out when it's time for the boys to go to pre-school.
3. Making out is Hard to Do
Jesse's competitive streak is unleashed when he learns that the Rippers' new lead singer has brought more success to the band than Jesse ever did. This experience prompts Jesse to get serious and form a new band of his own. When invited to her friend Gia's place for a party, Stephanie arrives armed with Pictionary--but the events of this gathering prove to be quite different than what Stephanie expected.
4. I've Got a Secret
What good is a secret club if it's not a secret. Danny spills the secret that Michelle told him about their secret club. Michelle gets kicked out of the club because of it.
5. To Joey, With Love
When your substitute teacher is somebody you live with, it's hard to maintain a fine line between the two. This is the case when Michelle--whose third grade class is in need of a substitute--begs Joey to fill the position. Eager to work with the children and be a good role model, Joey does his best to make a good impression, but when class begins, all the kids want is a free comedy session. When their out-of-control behavior prompts Joey to get tough, he ends up sending Michelle to the principal's office--a decision that places a serious damper on their close bond.Read more ›
All that being said, while I find myself disappointed in the lack of special features, for the most part of it, you get all the uncut episodes. But then, that's the question. Are they REALLY uncut? I think most of them are because I remember most of the 8th season's missing scenes that they cut out in syndication. I do have a feeling, however, that there are still some things missing. Like in "Michelle Rides Again (pt. 2), I seem to recall a hospital waiting room scene. Or I could just be confusing a different show for this one. Also, at the end of "Michelle Rides Again (pt. 1)", they show a clip of the family minus Michelle having a discussion about whether or not she'll ever get her memory back. This had to be after the Michelle actually comes home. Does anyone know if that was a full scene that was in the original airing of the episode? I also suspect that this scene was taped but likely never made the second part of the episode due to length (gotta make room for those commercials. Ugh). Anything's possible. I'd love it if Warner Bros. would release all the excess footage and make a DVD out of it. Full House: Rarities and Extras. Yeah, I'd buy that.
Anyway, this is an excellent DVD of what was a great show that would definitely remain popular for generations to come. So if you're a Full House fan, get this DVD. If you're a Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fan, these DVDs are a great chance to see them when they were much younger.
Be warned: If you're looking to buy them all, don't do what I did. I purchased each season individually. Many were very cheap. But towards the end, they got very expensive.
