“Fuller House,” the spin-off of the 1990s classic sitcom “Full House,” debuted on Netflix last week, but not everyone loved it as much as John Stamos did.
When Stamos appeared on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” this week, he and Meyers took the time to read some of the negative reviews the spin-off received. The Hollywood Reporter said, “It’s doubtful that there will be a more painful 2016 episode than the ‘Fuller House’ pilot.”
“He was being mauled by a bear when he was watching it,” Stamos said and insisted the second episode is better than the pilot. But he continued, “How fucking rude, right?!”
Meyers tried to read the second bad review from the Washington Post, and Stamos insisted on calling the writer out. Meyers obliged and read, “There’s a point where nostalgia becomes more like necrophilia, and ‘Fuller House’ immediately crosses that line.”
Stamos was outraged by this one and couldn’t hold back: “Is necrophilia when you get screwed by a dead magazine?”
He was later convinced that The New York Times liked the show the most of any of the critics when they wrote, “The series begins as a sitcom family reunion. It becomes a self-conscious, dated and maudlin reminder of the ceaseless march of time and your inevitable demise.”
In the end, Stamos laughed it off and reminded everyone that the show was on Netflix for only five days before it was immediately renewed for a second season.
