One of my least favorite reviews that Nostalgia Critic ever did is the one he did on Full House. In fact one of my very first articles ever was a defense of the show and why I liked it.
I am not saying that the show can’t be made fun of, even I can only watch so much. And don’t get me wrong, Nostalgia Critic (or Doug Walker) can hate this show all he wants. I just think his review was waayy to negative. He didn’t seem to get that the show was aimed for kids. He said it was never funny which isn’t fair. He also didn’t seem to get that the show did get better later on, that first season was so sappy that you really can’t judge the show by it. And he acted as if little gags were plots for entire episodes, rather than just gags within an episode. For instance he said one episode was setting up a hammock. No…that was just a joke in a B story of that episode!! It wasn’t that lame!
Ok, I think I got off track. However, all that being said it doesn’t mean I think everything he said was wrong. So to be fair, here are five points Nostalgia Critic made which I have to agree with.
Annoying Studio Audience
I am all for a studio audience laughing and having fun but I hate it when they react to everything. Screaming “Oohh” every time someone kisses is really annoying. This is a common complaint I have in sitcoms, from Saved By The Bell to Family Matters to even Happy Days (It drove me nuts that they applauded every time an actors walked into a scene….stop!). I don’t know why, just a big pet peeve of mine.
