A pricey, yet appealing offer for all those loyal Tanner jun

"If you are an avid "Full House" fan and/or a "child of the 90's" who watched the show regularly while it was on the air, then chances are pretty good that you have been loyally collecting the DVD's as they have been released season-by-season (at a remarkably quick pace, I might add). The individual sets have maintained a very reasonable selling price--no more than $22 or $23 at most places--so if you've grown up as a Tanner fan, then these have probably been tough to pass up.

Now, of course, if you've purchased the first 6 seasons and are patiently waiting for the last two, now you have another decision to make. Will you simply buy seasons 7 and 8 individually once they come out, or will you cave in to this deluxe full-series edition that has been penciled in for a November 2007 release? For some, it will be worth placing on your Christmas list this year, but for others, they will have no problem keeping the sets that they have already begun collecting. When these DVD companies go for the appealing "complete series" gift sets that are treated to more efficient packaging and (sometimes) garnished with some new special features, it's basically a matter of preference--and in many cases, it's tough to say no.

As for me, I am happy with the season sets that I have now, and I am looking forward to picking up the last two, so I don't plan on shelling out over $200 for this (partly because I also have my eye on a similar release being planned for "Gilmore Girls"). However, if you love "Full House" and think you would enjoy owning this, then it looks like it might be a decent investment. Again, the specifics on the bonus features are still unknown, and although I personally don't expect that they'll add anything new for this collection, I suppose anything is possible. Some things to look for, though, include a fancy episode guide, cast photos from over the years, and things along those lines.

If you're reading this, then you most likely know the premise of this show, but in short, it is a sweet, simple, and deliciously saccharine story of a widowed father who enlists in the help of his best friend and rock-n-rollin' brother-in-law to help him raise his three daughters, who ranged from infancy to age 10 when the series premiered in 1987. You've got superachieving oldest daughter DJ, perky middle child Stephanie, and the ever-adorable (yet occasionally bratty) Michelle, the "baby of the family," if you will, whose cute smile and professionally scripted catch phrases (think "You got it dude" and "Whoa baby") made young actresses Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen a necessary staple in the show's success.

Beyond the antics and plights of the growing Tanner kids, "Full House" maintained the attention of its target audience by producing sensitively written stories, with a twinge of humor and family-oriented messages sprinkled in each 30-minute episode. The three leading men (played by Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier) always worked well together, and as a slew of new characters gradually found their way into the plot, the charm was never lost.

Let's face it, though--there are a lot of people who will gladly take any opportunity they can find to bash this show, and if you've watched any of the episodes, you can probably guess what they don't like. The good news, however, is that given the impressive 8-year run that "Full House" achieved--as well as the plentiful television reruns and remarkable success in DVD sales--the critics' opinion just doesn't matter. If you have enjoyed this show, then the soupy plot threads and themes of family unity are probably right up your alley. There's no reason to be ashamed of it; this was a great series, filled with memorable performances, a youthful spirit, and a genuine wholesomeness that you can proudly watch with the whole family. It's nice that there is still something out there that children can see--something that can send out a positive message, reminding them that those common human values are still important.

With that being said, if the idea of having "Full House" immortalized on DVD sounds good to you, then you might want to save up for this set. Even if you've started buying the other sets and just like the idea of having this special edition collector's item, then go ahead--start setting aside your money, or ask for it when Christmas rolls around (hard to believe that time of year is arriving once again). Either way, this is a show that is certainly worth remembering, and if you're looking for something that satisfies your need for both humor and poignancy, there is perhaps nothing that fits the bill better than this!"

"Though I am sure you already know what the show is about, here is a short summary of it:

Full House first aired on ABC on September 22, 1987. Widower, "Danny" Danniel Ernest Tanner (Bob Saget) is left to raise his three daughters, "D.J." Donna Jo Margaret Tanner (Candace Cameron) Stephanie Judith Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and Michelle Elizabeth Tanner (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) after his wife, Pam, died in a car accident from a drunk driver. So Danny asks his best friend "Joey" Joseph Alvin Gladstone (Dave Coulier) and his brother in-law Jesse Cochran (John Stamos), but by season two his name changes to Jesse Katsopolis, to help raise his three girls. It's like Three Men and a Baby, but instead it's with raising three young girls. We watch these three dads raise these girls through the trials and errors of parenting. It's not a normal family, but it's a happy one, at least most of the time. Every family has it's ups and downs.

Added to the bunch, Jesse falls in love with and ends up marrying "Becky" Rebecca Donaldson (Lori Laughlin) and they have twin boys Nicky and Alex (Dylan and Blake Tuomy-Wilhout). It sure is a "full house" with lots of love to go around until May 23, 1995 when the show came to an end, but the laughs live on in this DVD set.

This is a great buy! All 192 episodes from all 8 seasons are in this set. There are 16 slim DVD cases, 2 per season. And in each case there are 2 DVDs, making a total of 32 DVDs in the box to store in the Tanner family house.

The DVDs in this set are actually exactly the same as the DVDs sold in the individual season boxed sets. The slim covers for each 2 DVDs in the set, are also the exact same as the individual seasons sets slim cases.

What's also great about the DVDs is that they don't cut out any scenes, like they do when they are on TV. I have noticed many longer scenes that were cut off on TV. Also, the theme song isn't cut either, until the 7th and 8th season, then the song is cut; otherwise every episode has the entire song play in the beginning.

If you are one who wants to know the lyrics to the theme song "Everywhere You Look," here it is:

WHATEVER HAPPEND TO PREDICTABILITY
THE MILK-MAN, THE PAPERBOY, EVENING TV
HOW DID I GET TO LIVING HERE
SOMEBODY TELL ME PLEASE
THIS WHOLE WORLD CONFUSING ME

CLOUDS AS MEAN AS YOU'VE EVER SEEN
AIN'T A BIRD WHO KNOWS YOUR TUNE
THEN A LITTLE VOICE INSIDE YOU WHISPER
PLEASE DON'T SELL YOUR DREAMS SO SOON

EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK
EVERYWHERE YOU GO
THERE'S A HEART (THERE'S A HEART)
A HAND TO HOLD ONTO
EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK
EVERYWHERE THERE'S A PLACE
OF SOMEBODY WHO NEEDS YOU
EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK

WHEN YOU'RE LOST OUT THERE AND ALL ALONE
A LIGHT IS WAITING TO CARRY YOU HOME
EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK

EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK

I was listening to the song while writing down the lyrics. After several hearings of it, hopefully I got most of the lyrics right, but anyways, this is very close to the real words in the song.

It's great to watch with the family and you never have to worry about leaving your child watch this show alone. It may not be a classic, but it sure entertains, but more for those young ones between the ages of 8-12. However, I have plenty of memories watching this show as a child, and I still enjoy it.

Every episode has a life lesson to be learned. I think many viewers can relate to the characters' and their problems. I think that is why it stayed on TV for 8 years, even though I know the first season didn't do too well, at least those other seasons behind it helped keep it on.

The languages spoken in the box set is just English. As for subtitles for the series, well, it varies. I did check each of the seasons, but not each DVD, what the subtitles are, but I'm pretty sure that the subtitles from disk one in season one is the same for disk four for season one and the same goes for the rest of the seasons. Please let me know if this is incorrect, or if I notice that it isn't in any of the seasons and disks, then I'll update this review. Anyways, seasons one through three have English, French, and Spanish subtitles. Seasons four through five have French and Spanish. Season six has no subtitles, and seasons seven through eight have just English subtitles for the hearing impaired. I'm not sure why the subtitles are not the same for each of the seasons.

Extras In This DVD Set:
Season 1
Disc 1: Bonus: Original Unaired Pilot, Commentary by Jeff Franklin (creator of the show) for episode 1: Our Very First Show

Disc 4: Commentary by Jeff Franklin for episode 21: Mad Money
Season 2

"I love this show and I'm so glad that the entire series is finally on DVD. I recommend this program to anyone that is looking to add some quality programming to their video library because every episode of "Full House" always had a wholesome message. As a kid watching this, I never realized how good of a show it was. Now when I watch the DVDs I really get it."
