Though I am sure you already know what the show is about, here is a short summary of it:
Full House first aired on ABC on September 22, 1987. Widower, Danny Taner (Bob Saget) is left to raise his three daughters, DJ or Donna Jo Margaret Tanner (Candace Cameron) Stephanie Judith Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and Michelle Elizabeth Tanner (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) after his wife, Pam, died in a car accident from a drunk driver. So Danny asks his best friend "Joey" Joseph Alvin Gladstone and his brother in-law Jesse Cochran, but by season two his name changes to Jesse Katsopolis, to help raise his three girls. It's like Three Men and a Baby, but instead it's with raising three young girls. We watch these three dads raise these girls through the trials and errors of parenting. It's not a normal family, but it's a happy one, at least most of the time. Every family has it's ups and downs.
Added to the bunch, Jesse falls in love and ends up marrying Rebecca "Becky" Donaldson (Lori Laughlin) and they have twin boys Nicky and Alex (Dylan and Blake Tuomy-Wilhout). It sure is a "full house" with lots of love to go around until May 23, 1995 when the show came to an end. But the laughs live on in this DVD set.
This is a great buy! All 192 episodes from all 8 seasons are in this set. There are 16 slim DVD cases, 2 per season. And in each case there are 2 DVDs, making a total of 32 DVDs in the box to store in the Tanner family house.
The DVDs in this set are actually exactly the same as the DVDs sold in the individual season boxed sets. The slim covers for each 2 DVDs in the set, are also the exact same as the individual seasons sets slim cases.
It's great to watch with the family and you never have to worry about leaving your child watch this show alone. It may not be a classic, but it sure entertains, but more for those young ones between the ages of 8-12. But I have plenty of memories watching this show as a child, and I still enjoy it.
Every episode has a life lesson to be learned. I think many viewers can relate to the characters' and their problems. I think that is why it stayed on TV for 8 years, even though I know the first season didn't do too well, at least those other seasons behind it, helped make it stay on.
