Fuller House: Netflix Rides The Nostalgia Trolley
90s babies, rejoice. The popular family sitcom "Full House" will be rebooted on Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX). Once a top 10 show on television, the 13 episode reboot will follow a similar storyline to the original: a widower trying to raise a family whose siblings subsequently move in under one roof.
The series is scheduled to launch some time in 2016.
The original "Full House" ran from 1987-1995 and was a staple of ABC's Friday night programming; however, the show was certainly not without its critics.
This is not the first time Netflix has revived a once-loved show. FOX's 2003-2005 Emmy-award winning "Arrested Development" was brought back from the grave in 2013.
So, what do people think of the "Fuller House" announcement?

Others weren't very impressed:
This might be the most controversial thing I ever tweet: Full House was a corny, badly-written show. Awful.
