Synopsis


Season eight of Full House was supposed to have been the occasion that one of the two Olsen twins (Ashley and Mary-Kate) was to take over the role of Michelle Tanner, youngest daughter of San Francisco TV host Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), on a full-time basis. Previously, both girls had shared the role, but now the time had come for one girl to remain and another to leave the series. But thanks to the intervention of co-star John Stamos (who played Danny's brother-in-law, Jesse Katsopolis), both Olsen girls continued alternating in the role of Michelle -- and both were given special billing at the beginning of each episode. This was the major event of Full House's eighth and final network season, though there were plenty of other highlights. In the season opener, rock-star wannabe Jesse is unceremoniously fired by his own back-up band -- and later replaced by Brady Bunch regular Barry Williams. Also, Jesse's twin children, Nicky and Alex (Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit), are poised to begin pre-school, provided their over protective parents allowed this rite of passage. Danny continues fretting over his oldest daughter D.J. (Candace Cameron) and her choice of dates, notably the well-named Viper (David Lipper); meanwhile, middle daughter Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) is just as boy-crazy, at one point auditioning for the lead role in a school play in hopes of getting her handsome co-star to kiss her on-stage. On a more serious note, D.J. and her friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber) are crestfallen when they aren't accepted by the college of their choice; the audience learns for the first time what caused the death of Danny's wife, Pam; and in the two-episode series finale, Michelle suffers a serious injury which causes her to lose her memory. This final predicament, is, however, resolved long before the episode's warmhearted and sentimental fadeout, in which the cast bids an affectionate goodbye to Full House's legions of fans. ~ Hal Erickson

    It's time to get ready to say goodbye to the Tanner family. But before we do, we still get one last season of fun and laughs. And everyone faces challenges as well. This season, Danny (Bob Saget) finds a new girlfriend in one of Stephanie's (Jodie Sweetin) friend's mother. Joey (Dave Coulier) tries to substitute teach, but finds it hard when Michelle's (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) class expects him to be funny instead of serious. Jesse (John Stamos) is kicked out of his own bands and forms a new one, Hot Daddy and the Monkey Puppets. Meanwhile, his wife Becky (Lori Loughlin) becomes the producer of "Wake Up, San Francisco," much to Danny's dismay. And Jesse and Becky have to deal with their twins, Nicky and Alex (Blake & Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit) starting pre-school. And the kids on the show face their own growing pains. D.J. (Candace Cameron) tries to juggle two boyfriends after breaking up with long time boyfriend Steve. (And as long as we're on the subject of Steve, what is he doing on the cover of the box since he isn't in this season?) D.J.'s best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber) decides to elope when faced with the possibility of D.J. moving away. Stephanie forms a new rock band. And Michelle uses her lemonade stand money to buy a donkey. Even Comet gets into the act this year when he runs away for an afternoon. This may be the last season, but the show isn't running out of laughs. Long time fans will find just as many laughs as previous seasons. The cast is still having fun together bringing their characters to life each week. As is tradition, most episodes end with a heart to heart, and a hug or two. And there are still special guest stars like Barry Williams and Mickey Rooney, too. The one thing this four disc set doesn't have is special features. But that's not really shocking considering that the last few sets haven't had any either. It's hard to say goodbye. But fans of the show will be pleased to have the final season in their collection.

    I was a late bloomer fan of the show. I did not start watching it until about 2000 in reruns. The characters you like, the characters you hate. I like Donna Jo (D.J.), Stephanie, Jesse, Rebecca & Danny. I hate Michelle & Joey. The Olson twins could NOT act. And, if I heard "Cut It Out" out of Joey 1 more time. The show was still a hit when ABC removed it. Was it the storylines for this last season. The ending of the D. J. & Steve relationship. Then, her brief dating of other guys, the rich guy then Viper. Remember, we NEVER learned his real name. Repeating storylines again. Just in season 7 Episode 8 "Another Opening, Another No Show". Jesse & Kimmy getting locked in a storage room during the Smash Club opening. Here we go again. Episode 11 "Arrest Ye Merry Gentlemen" The Mickey Rooney episode, Jesse & Michelle locked in his store. How many times did Jesse get locked in someplace in the entire 8 seasons? Another episode with an animal. How many episodes did they use this bit? Normally the show was good family entertainment, same with this season BUT with these flaws.

    My 8 year old has become obsessed with Full House. I don't know how she learned of the show but I'm glad she did. I'd rather her watch the old Full House over the new stuff on television today!
