The football game will be nice and all, but the real highlight of Super Bowl Sunday will be the “Full House” reunion on our television screens. Dannon Oikos’ poster boy, John Stamos (known to most of us as Uncle Jesse), will reunite with his former “Full House” costars in a Greek yogurt commercial on game day. Bob Saget and Dave Coulier will step in as his on-camera roommates, just like the good old days of the series. Sure, it would be more fun if the whole cast were there, and it’s a little awkward that this reunion comes under the pretense of selling yogurt. But still! I’m unable to contain my utter glee at the thought of them back together. You can check out the preview above. (Yes, we live in an age in which you can watch commercial for a commercial, which is a little too meta for me to grasp). [Adweek]
Have you heard the glorious news? Disney has commissioned a pilot from “Boy Meets World” creator Michael Jacobs for a spinoff called “Girl Meets World.” The best part? Rumor has it that Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel (aka Cory and Topanga) will be reuniting to play the main character’s parents. So awesome, right? These new developments got us thinking of other ’90s sitcom sequels and spinoffs we’d like to see. Check out our show proposals, after the jump… Keep reading »
Everywhere you look, there’s a face of somebody who needs you. Well, they don’t need you, more like we needed them back in the ’80s. Those were the days.Watching “Full House” on TGIF, eating Burger King french fries, thinking there was a future for me on primetime television because D.J. Tanner was also chubby with big bangs.
The Tanners and crew got together with the “Full House” creators for a 25 year reunion of the show. (Holy shit … that means I’m old!) As you can see, the Olsen twins were missing, due to being too famous or something. Not that they were that important on the show anyway. They didn’t speak for like the first three seasons or something. Keep reading »
“The Alanis [Morissette] I know is really fun to be around and really thoughtful and sweet. I think there’s a lot of things in Jagged Little Pill that are very deep and fueled by her interactions with a lot of people. At the time we were dating, she was writing a lot of music, and I was a newly divorced, single father with a two-year old son. She was living in Ottawa, Canada and I was living in Los Angeles. It was a tough time for me and a lot of distance for a budding relationship. I’ll always think of her as a really great person. As far as being the so-called subject of ‘You Oughta Know’…I’ll just let the urban legend folks keep spinning on that one.”
— Oh, Uncle Joey, why do you deny “You Oughta Know” is about you? Dave Coulier totally admitted in a 2008 interview with the Calgary Sun the song is about him. Dave told the paper then, “I said, ‘Wow, this girl is angry [when he first heard the song while driving].’ And then I said, ‘Oh man, I think it’s Alanis.’ I listened to the song over and over again, and I said, ‘I think I have really hurt this person.’” Hey, I guess she really was there to remind him of the mess he left when he went away. [Flavorwire] Keep reading »
Candace Cameron is the girl who launched a thousand embroidered vests and neon scrunchies. Her story is the stuff of ’90s legend—after seeing her big brother Kirk’s experience on “Growing Pains,” Candace knew she wanted to be an actress and, after spots on “Who’s the Boss” and in “Some Kind of Wonderful,” she landed the iconic role of DJ Tanner on “Full House.” The show ended in 1995, and since then Candace has gotten hitched to pro hockey player Valeri Bure, and is now the proud mama of three children. She’s also acting again, playing Summer on ABC Family’s gymnastics-palooza, “Make It Or Break It.” Candace sat down with The Frisky to talk about returning to the television scene. After the jump, she dishes about everything from the Olsen Twins to which of her “Full House” uncles set her up with her hubby. Oh, and she’s also celebrating the 30th anniversary of the juice box. Because who doesn’t love one of those? Keep reading »
