REVIEW: Lifetime's Unauthorized Full House Story Comes Up Empty

Originally posted 08/22/2015 12:35PM

The Unauthorized Full House Story, Lifetime's second foray into a behind-the-scenes movie franchise about old TV shows, is perfunctory and flavorless. It could be a project dumped on a director and crew imprisoned in a penal colony.

PRISONER: I was hoping maybe, if we had the resources here, to do a reboot of Romy and Michele's High School Reunion. Might that please the Commandant?
GUARD IN CHARGE OF WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT: You will film the production that the Commandant has greenlighted and no other! The Commandant suggests that you begin immediately to cast the central role of "Bob Saget."

The Unauthorized Full House Story proceeds through the history of the ABC series (1987–95) without much ado and without any scandal. You learn that the show was initially conceived as House of Comics and that those adorable Olsen twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley, still needed potty breaks at that point in their legendary careers. It also includes this line of dialogue: "Bob Saget is Danny Tanner!"

Happy birthday, Uncle Jesse!

John Stamos turned 52 on Wednesday and rang in the birthday with plenty of happy wishes from his Fuller House costars – and one silly picture he posted himself.

"At 52, proof I put on my undies like everyone else … one leg at a time," he captioned the black-and-white shot, which shows the actor in his underwear, slipping one foot into a pair of pants.

'Here's the Story ...': Our 10 Favorite TV Theme Songs Ever

Originally posted 08/12/2015 06:15PM

We weren't surprised that Candace Cameron Bure still remembers all the words to the Full House theme song "Everywhere You Look" considering she played D.J. Tanner for eight seasons on the beloved sitcom.

The tune had all the elements of a good opening – it immediately got you excited for your favorite show to begin, was instantly recognizable and entirely unforgettable.

While we wait to see if "Everywhere You Look" will return as Fuller House's opener, we're happy to run down more of the best theme songs over the years, limiting ourselves to iconic opening sequences featuring vocals (sorry American Horror Story, Law & Order and Dexter) to celebrate the themes we just can't stop singing.

When TV Goes on Holiday: The Hottest Small-Screen Vacation Spots, by the Numbers

Originally posted 08/12/2015 05:00PM

It seems like every time our favorite TV characters take a vacation, they end up in one of three main destinations: Hawaii, Paris or Disney World.

It makes sense that these would be such popular destinations – after all; they're familiar, easy to film in and ripe for sitcom hijinks. And really, who doesn't want to hang with Mickey and Minnie or sunbathe in the tropics or even take a romantic stroll along the Seine?

Since all three of these locations seemed to entice our favorite shows over and over again, we couldn't help but wonder which other exotic destinations are statistically more likely to attract our favorite TV shows. Since we never pass up an excuse to binge watch Friends and Saved by the Bell, we dug through some classic shows from the TV archives and did a little math. You'll notice that some shows managed to rack up some serious frequent flier miles during their runs!

John Stamos Admits He Wanted Olsen Twins Fired from Full House

Have mercy!

In a preview from Lifetime's upcoming Unauthorized Full House Story, John Stamos is shown trying to give Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen the boot from Full House – but was the actor who played the twins' doting on-screen Uncle Jesse really capable of doing such a thing?

"It's sort of true that the Olsen twins cried a lot," Stamos told critics at the Television Critics Association's press tour Thursday in Beverly Hills. "It was very difficult to get the shot. So I [said], 'Get them out ... !' That is actually 100 percent accurate. They brought in a couple of unattractive redheaded kids. We tried that for a while and that didn't work. [Producers] were like, all right, get the Olsen twins back. And that's the story."
