Subject: Calling Full House Club members ... Full House Discussion Thread

Written By: Full_House_Fan on 03/12/05 at 12:47 am

I like how DJ's hair shows what hairstyles were like in different parts of the late 80s and early-mid 90s.  Very cool and there's never been a bad episode.  Okay one, when Michelle first went to preschool.  That one was creepy.

Yeah, I liked that even though it evolved a bit -- and you can tell what year it is usually -- even in the very last shows in 1994/95, it still had a definite 80's/early 90's feeling to me.

It is strange seeing the early episodes (for awhile back, after the Finale aired, they flip-flopped it back to show alot of the Season 1 ep's) since Michelle is just a baby. I keep expecting her to have lines or to be in there commenting on something, LOL. However, on the other hand, I like seeing the more "80's" feeling of it -- in one of the very first ones, Jesse has a party with a couple girls he knows. They're rocking in the living room when DJ & Stephanie come down, one of them says, "Do you know any Bangles songs?" :D

That's something that clearly wouldn't have worked even a year or two later.

Really, Full House felt more eighties and more modern than other show of its time (c. 1990). Family Matters, for instance, feels more 90s but it also feels older.  I don't know, it just does.  Compare a 1992 Fresh Prince to a 1992 Full House.  The Full House seems way more modern, but FH sorta had a hairspray and rock and roll thing with Jesse that was never totally discarded (he lost his mullet in 1989 but he never left that rockabilly attitude).  Up to 1991 FH had a bit of 80s air?  Did you see the 1991 New Year's episode with the dating service and that chick with that 80s do?  Joey was freaked out; somehow that makes me think adults thought the teased hair was weird even in the 80s.

Even the 1990 episodes have legwarmers, some 80s hair, and even a Billy Idol reference (couple with an MC Hammer one).  By 1992 the show felt early 90s.  But really it always feels more modern than other shows of it time.
