Fuller House

Because we absolutely needed to talk about the revival of “Full House!” Earlier this week, the news broke out that Netflix would be bringing Full House back to life and the plot line got us even more excited.

According to E! the new series will follow older sister, D.J. Tanner-Fuller (wow, that pun!), played by Candace Cameron-Bure, who is “a pregnant veterinarian – recently widowed – and living in San Francisco.” Jodie Sweetin, who played middle sister Stephanie Tanner, and Andrea Barber, D.J.’s BFF-neighbor Kimmy Gibbler will also star in the series. It’s also heard that John Stamos will co-star and produce.

Now, of course we would love it if Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would reprise their role as Michelle Tanner, but it looks like Lori Loughlin isn’t holding her breath and threw a little shade saying she doubts that they even care about the revival. However, after a post I saw yesterday from Ohnotheydidnt, it looks like it’s not completely off the table for the twins.

Mary-Kate said, “We just found out about it today. I guess we’re going to talk to the creators and see what’s happening.”

Meanwhile Ashley said she was surprised that her old co-stars hadn’t mentioned anything to her. “I ran into Bob [Saget] the other day and we didn’t even talk about it. I’m shocked I haven’t heard from John [Stamos].”

As to whether they’ll participate, Ashley said, “I’m going to call [Saget] and get his perspective.”

Omg. It’s really happening! Now #whereiscomet

Also, was D.J.’s husband Steve?! Did Steve die? I have so many questions.

The Sisterhood Exists In Real Life

Hands down – this had to be one of the sweetest things I’ve read all week. Growing up, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was one of my favorite series. I couldn’t always exactly relate to all of the situations that happened in the books or even felt like I resonated with one character, but there were a series of moments that I maybe identified with spread out between the four characters. After the series was turned into a movie and then a sequel, I was ecstatic. The actresses selected were such a good fit, but sometimes that’s all it is – just acting, right? It’s sometimes rare for people that are cast in a movie to stay friends afterwards, but not these 4.

It was revealed this week that Blake Lively made Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel, and America Ferrera the godmothers of her newborn baby. Awwww!

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

I’ve been obsessed with Bates Motel ever since the show started so when Kevin shared with me this trailer that stars one of the main characters, I was more than just a little excited. This looks like a good one!

A Full House Reboot

As a 90’s child, I couldn’t get enough of Full House. It was my favorite show and I was convinced that Michelle Tanner and I were pretty much the same person… but you know as two different races and two completely different families. When I saw Alamo Square for the first time and the Painted Ladies (highlighted in the opening credits) I could have died out of excitement. So when it was announced earlier this week that Netflix might be signing on for a reboot of my favorite series, I nearly thought it was an April Fool’s prank. Luckily it wasn’t.

Here’s what we know so far:

– Netflix will be taking on 13 episodes continuing the series.

– It will be titled “Fuller House” instead of “Full House.”

– Candace Cameron Bure will reprise her role as DJ and Andrea Barber will return as Kimmy Gibbler! (The Gibbler!!)

More importantly, are they still in San Francisco? Alamo Square? Where are Danny, Jesse, and Joey now? Are they all still living together? I have so many questions.

Miles Teller on Jimmy Fallon

Miles Teller could possibly be one of my favorite new actors. I mean he’s not that new, actually, but I enjoy him in almost everything that he’s in. I’m still waiting to see Whiplash though and I heard he did a pretty good job in it! Also this appearance on Jimmy Fallon is golden.

In Case You Missed It… Zoolander 2

As we all know, our favorite models Derek and Hansel walked the Valentino runway earlier this week and it wasn’t just a random decision. They are, in fact, making a Zoolander sequel and this was the most perfect way for them to reveal the news. Zoolander 2 is slated to be released February 12, 2016. Can you believe that it will have been 15 years since the first movie was released? I’m so curious now about what my 11-year-old self thought about that film.

And what! They also got to meet Anna Wintour. They really went all out for publicity.

Next Season on The Bachelorette…

25 men will go on dates with both Kaitlyn AND Britt! For the first time ever in Bachelor/Bachelorette history, there will be two bachelorettes and they pretty much were the babes of last season’s The Bachelor. In the beginning of the season, Britt was the frontrunner for The Bachelor, but seeing Kaitlyn get as far as she did, others were convinced that she would be the next Bachelorette. Tough choice, but having both of them will definitely make up for some entertainment.

Apparently the guys will go after both of them and ultimately decide who they think will make the better wife. Will there be one of them left standing? Will both of them go after the same guy? Will Britt and Kaitlyn each have a rose to give out at the very end? So many questions about logistics. We’re looking forward to May 18th when the next season starts!

Eddie Huang for TIME Magazine

I have to admit that when I first heard about Fresh Off the Boat becoming a television series on ABC, I wanted to boycott the show. I had seen the commercials for it and the acting sometimes made me cringe, but it wasn’t until Kevin told me that he was entirely caught up on the series that I thought it deserved a shot. How quickly I changed my tune…

I was afraid that by others watching the show that Asian Americans would be faced with those confirmations about our stereotypes or that everyone would immediately assume that my childhood was exactly like Eddie’s which was going to be portrayed negatively. In fact, my childhood and my brother’s was a lot like Eddie’s and it wasn’t portrayed negatively. I am now a fan of the show and I think it does something great for Asian Americans. It gives us something to relate to because I can guarantee you growing up, I never felt like anyone could really relate to me in this sense.

Fifty Shades of Grey: Yeah, We Watched It

Oh yes, you better believe that we caught this movie on opening weekend. Having never read the books and being very curious about the advertisements I’ve been seeing for the film, I just had to see it. So here are my thoughts:

  • The movie didn’t flow as well as I would’ve liked. Everything felt really choppy, but I hear it’s not like this in the books.
  • They made Seattle look gooooooooooood.
  • This is not a movie that you want to take your kids to. I was appalled to see children sitting a couple rows in front of me.
  • Is it just me or did it feel like Jamie and Dakota had absolutely no chemistry together onscreen. I mean it didn’t seem very belivable to me?
  • It’s definitely not as racy as people made it out to me.
  • Why is this version offered in imax?
  • What is it like to see the NC-17 version of this film?
  • The best part of this movie? The soundtrack. Gimme that Ellie Goulding and The Weeknd anyday.

It’s not a masterpiece by any means, but I’m glad I saw it. We got something out of our systems by doing so.
