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!"

William H. Macy and his Shameless costars Justin Chatwin and Steve Howey took off on a 900-mile motorcycle ride from Los Angeles to Aspen in search of freedom, a quest that was inspired in part by Macy's wife, Felicity Huffman, who asked him to describe his love for his Harley Davidson.
"Felicity was saying one time, 'Well what is it? You don't like to ride in a car, how come the motorcycle, which is a lot more uncomfortable, how come that's so great?' " he told PEOPLE exclusively. "It's freedom, it's such freedom. And she said, 'Well there's the road, what do you mean by freedom?' So that was the kickoff point."
