These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Full House
Angst? What Angst?: This is a show about three little girls whose mother died tragically and unexpectedly shortly before the pilot. Itís a comedy.
However, when it does get brought up (and it does), you can be sure it's not going to be a funny part of the show.
Contractual Purity: How Bob Saget felt about his stint on this and his stint on America's Funniest Home Videos, both of which required him to act like a smiling, family-friendly milquetoast. He now claims, in his extremely profane standup act, "Those shows gave me Tourette's."
Hell, every actor on the show falls victim to this. Let's just be grateful Bob was one of the few who didn't turn to hard drugs to recover from being in the show (the other being Candace Cameron).
Creator's Pet: Michelle. Quite a few fans have noticed how it seems like she could get away with darn near anything and seldom face any consequences (and no discipline whatsoever from Danny).
This was Lampshaded in the Season 6 two-part finale, which had Michelle crowned as "the princess" at Walt Disney World. As a result, she tries to get everybody to follow her orders. The best part of the episode is Stephanie, who, throughout the episode, voices exactly what the audience has been saying since Season 3.
In season 8 just about every episode had Michelle heavily involved in the plot.
One particular instance of Michelle actually being punished stands out: in the ''Silence is Not Golden'' dealing with a classmate of Stephanie's being abused by his father (thus causing Stephanie to develop new respect for Danny), Michelle is punished for calling a pay-per-minute joke phone line. While technically this may seem to be an aversion of Michelle's punishment-immunity, it loses impact because it only serves to give Stephanie a target for her rant about valuing your parents, etc. once Michelle gets upset at Danny for punishing her.
One of Joey's CMOA's comes from actually punishing Michelle when she acts up in a class he's substituting in.
Michelle getting a larger role in the plot was in response to the character's popularity throughout the show's run (Merchandise featuring Michelle outsold all other show merchandise, for example). However, the writers took it way too far to the point that she ruled the show and all of the other characters with an iron fist, turning her into a Scrappy for the ages. By season 8, the show focused so much on her to the point where she was practically the main character; many sarcastically started to call the show "The Michelle Show" because of this. Today, she is universally hated by fans of the show.
Michelle becoming the Creator's Pet also lead in the shift of the show's tone to that of a kiddie show as opposed to a family-friendly sitcom.
In "Slumber Party" Jesse takes Michelle to a store that made her look like a biker and tells Danny she'll be the hottest babe in school (and Michelle is four at this time). Back then, it might have been funny. But with the issues today that moment makes you want to mute your TV whenever comes on.
Harsher in Hindsight: The episode where Stephanie made friends with a girl who was a smoker and is pressured into trying cigarettes became this when the actress who played Stephanie years later came out as a recovering meth addict.
The episode where D.J. stopped eating when you learn about Mary-Kate Olsen having similar problems.
In "A Pox in Our House", Danny said Jesse's suit makes him look like he's spinning from a ceiling disco ball, which he does many seasons later in the grand opening of the Smash Club.
In one episode Jesse tries record The Beach Boys song forever as a rap song, and the chorus borrows from "The Streets of Cairo." Kesha would do this two decades later with "Take it Off."
In the sixth season there's a group of popular girls who are into fashion and all have the same name, that Stephanie tries to become friends with. A few years later on ABC we would get Recess, where there's a clique of girls with the same name Ashley that are into fashion and girly things.
In "Secret Admirer", Kimmy thought Jesse gave her the love letter, and she briefly liked the idea of being his wife. Seasons later, in one episode Jesse had a nightmare where he's become a wash-up has-been working at a mechanic shop and married to Kimmy.
Hollywood Pudgy: Candace Cameron was criticized for being too chubby and was pressured by the show to lose weight. Luckily, she didn't let it get to her, as she felt she didn't have a weight problem, and ended up losing a healthy amount of weight by the end of the show.
Ho Yay: Three guys living together raising kids in San Francisco... someone is bound to get ideas. Joey's and Jesse's boss in the advertising business, for one. Word of Saint Paul on the subject can be found here.
Hype Backlash: Michelle. Midway through the show's run she became the show's most popular character, with "Michelle" merchandise outselling all other show merchandise by a notable margin. This prompted the show's writers to give her a more prominent role in the series. However, they took it too far and she quickly became a Scrappy for the ages.
I Am Not Shazam: A lot of people refer to Dave Coulier's character as "Uncle Joey," even though no one on the show ever called him this, and he wasn't the girls' uncle in any case.
Never Live It Down: The entire cast has this show as their most notable pop cultural impact. Even though Bob Saget went on to narrate How I Met Your Mother, he and everyone else on the show have yet to top its success, individually or as a group. †
Bob Saget. People who has seen his stand-up routine would be shocked. His comedy style is rather vulgar. And, for those who only knew him for portraying Danny Tanner would also be shocked. Below is a few shocked comments from YouTube users.
