"Fuller House" premiered this last Friday on Netflix, and the world was once again reunited with "A heart and a hand to hold onto." As a 90's kid who grew up on this show, I was over the moon. I haven't made it all the way through the first season yet, but here are the 10 best moments from the premiere episode. Beware: there are spoilers below so stay away if you haven't seen it yet!
1. The revamped theme song with flashbacks to "Full House."
Carly Rae Jepsen did a phenomenal job with the remake of the original theme song. Not only that, but the cast montage is full of flashbacks from the original intro to "Full House," filling us all with the sentimentality of the milkman, the paperboy, and evening TV.
2. The whole original cast being back together (minus Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen).
As each member of the Tanner/Katsopolis/Gladstone/Gibbler clan made their entrances at the opening of the episode, my heart exploded with happiness. We all knew going into the series that Michelle was going to be absent, which was disheartening (come on, Olsen twins). There was a very pointed look into the camera as Danny shared that Michelle was "busy running her fashion empire in New York" and couldn't be there for the going away party.
3. Seeing where everyone's careers had gone.
Joey with his own show in Vegas. Danny and Becky hosting a new morning talk show in Los Angeles, California. Jesse being a lead composer for "General Hospital," his favorite TV show. It's all just so beautiful.
4. Seeing Nicky and Alex all grown up.
Hubba, hubba. I mean, they are the children of the most beautiful couple in TV history so why did we expect anything less?
5. Stephanie and DJ being all sisterly -- especially the fighting.
6. Jesse serenading Becky with "Forever," the song we all forgot about until the Rippers started playing the well-known melody.
"Forever. Forever. I'll be so happy loving you." I may or may not have sobbed a little.
7. The resurfacing of all of those key "Full House" quotes we all know and love.
8. Learning that DJ is a single mom of three because her husband died.
Turns out her life ended up being just like Danny's. Excuse us while we all cry for eternity.
9. The sing-along to "The Flintstones" theme song to calm down Tommy, DJ's youngest.
Crying so many tears! Why, producer John Stamos, why?
10. When Kimmie and Stephanie decide to move in with DJ to help her raise her kids.
It's just like "Full House." It's enough to make you happy beyond belief or maybe have you sobbing uncontrollably like I did. It's fine.
All I know is, I can't wait to keep watching this week. What midterms?
