Similarities and differences

A common similarity that fans noticed in both Full and Fuller house was that in both shows they use the same house and most of the same furniture, like the iconic blue plaid couch. Viewers said that this made the show better because it incorporated a similar setting and it helped make the reboot just as good as the original. A difference that viewers also noticed was that the sequel wasn’t as funny and the jokes were more cringe, or childish rather than funny like in the original. It was also more childish and kid-friendly than the original.
