Full House: Complete Third Season [DVD] [Import]
Two years ago, rocker Jesse (John Stamos, Jake in Progress) and stand-up comedian Joey (Dave Coulier, Skating with Celebrities) moved in with TV personality Danny (Bob Saget, most recently seen subverting his kindly dad image on Showtime's Huff) and daughters after the death of their mother. The next year, Jesse started seeing Danny's co-host, Becky (Lori Loughlin), who became a mother figure to Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), D.J. (Candace Cameron), and Michelle (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen). Taking a page from the Brady Bunch playbook, the year begins with a trip to Hawaii to celebrate their anniversary as an extended family. In the season premiere ("Tanner's Island"), Uncle Jesse even gets to sing a song by his hero, Elvis Presley (Blue Hawaii's "Rock-a-Hula Baby"). After they return, it's time for Stephanie and D.J. to head back to class. Stephanie's first day in second grade is a blast, while D.J.'s first day in junior high is a bust ("Back to School Blues"), but things improve once she stops trying so hard to fit in. Other third year changes include new dog Comet ("And They Call It Puppy Love"), D.J.'s first kiss ("13 Candles"), and birthday number three for precocious munchkin Michelle ("The Greatest Birthday on Earth"), who begins pre-school shortly afterwards ("Bye, Bye, Birdie"). Guest stars include Ed McMahon ("Star Search"), Scott Baio ("Dr. Dare Rides Again"), the Beach Boys' Mike Love ("Our Very First Telethon"), and Everybody Loves Raymond's Doris Roberts as Grandma Tanner ("Granny Tanny"). --Kathleen C.

My 10 year old sister loves this show too and we like to watch it together...and it makes me feel good that not EVERYTHING she watches is full of terrible messages (I have a bone to pick with the music she listens to but that's another issue)...
Maybe it is a little over the top, but I don't think there is anything wrong with showing the way a family CAN operate if they choose to - with love, respect, acceptance, loyalty and discipline that comes from the heart, not some arbitrary power trip - and also that family isn't neccesarily who you are related to, or a traditional family. I think people that say it's unrealistic are just trying to justify the dysfunction they are steeped in. No family is perfect, obviously (my own family, close as they are, certainly had its issues!) and this is an idealized portrayal - but that doesn't mean we can't always be striving for something better.
This is also one of my favorite seasons becaues the kids start to grow up and diverge and go through the struggles that I think a lot of kids (and even adults on some level) can relate to.
So whether you're a nostalgic twenty something, a kid, or an adult looking for something to enjoy with your whole family, I think the Full House DVDs are a great choice.
I do think the special features on this particular one sucked though.
It's not like when I bought season 3 of Duke's of Hazzard way back when and every one of the episodes worked one time and hasn't since. And I finally got see the song that D.J. sings at the telethon again ("lollipops and gummy bears and" lots of things "that we can share")
This season, D.J. (Candace Cameron) enters Jr. High. Naturally, the adjustment is hard not only on her, but Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), who still wants to hang with her old sister, and Danny, Jesse, and Joey, who don't want to let her grow up.
Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) seems to have plenty of trouble with his girlfriend Becky (Lori Loughlin). They seem to fight as often as they get along. My favorite of these is "Breaking up is Hard to Do (in 22 minutes)" which finds the couple trying to work through their various hobbies.
In other developments this season, Michelle (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) turn three and start pre-school, Danny (Bob Saget) takes the entire family to Hawaii, Stephanie backs Joey's car into the kitchen, and Joey (Dave Coulier) makes one more desperate bid to become a famous stand-up comic.
While Jesse and Joey are still working in advertising, that seems to be an side note and is only the focus of one or two episodes this season. We also suffer the first signs of tainted timelines when Doris Roberts shows up to play Danny's mom and Becky and Jesse celebrate the one year anniversary of the day they met around Christmas (in an episode that aired in January originally.)
Those quibbles aside, the jokes are still great and the cast still does a great job acting.
This season does contain the first episode I truly didn't care for. "Our Very First Telethon" is basically a talent show for the cast with no real plot. That's one episode I won't watch much in the future.
This set contains 24 episodes on four discs. The only extra is a montage of Joey's impersonations over the course of the season. Frankly, it's funny, but not worth watching more then once.
While I would love some real extras, the show itself is still very funny. This is certainly worth owning for Full House fans.
If you grew up with this show and loved it then, you'll still love it. (its just as corny, but so cute) If you liked this show and want to relive the memorys, its worth the money!
