Why It Rocks
- Catchy theme song. You can listen to it here.
- The characters are all likable and memorable, like Danny, Jesse, Joey, Lori, D.J, Jodie and Michelle.
- Top-notched acting. Except from the Olsen twins.
- Steve Urkel from Family Matters makes a cameo appearance in one episode.
- Some episodes tackle serious issues, like the episode "The Last Dance" where Jesse's grandfather dies and the episode, "Silence is Not Golden" where one character talks about his abusive homelife.
- Some cute and funny moments with Michelle.
- It has a sequel, Fuller House which holds up the legacy pretty well.
- The episode "My Left Foot and My Right Foot" is a bit disturbing.
- Some of the characters don't really have much memorable personalities.
- Some of the episodes' plots are a bit dully written.
- The Olsen twins' acting is mediocre, and their characters just mostly say exclamative lines that aren't really all that funny.
- Some jokes can be painfully unfunny.
