12 Signs You Watched A Lot Of 'Full House' Growing Up
With a nation in peak nostalgia mode and a reunion getting routinely updated, a lot of Full House fans are coming out of the woodwork. In fact, if you’re someone who is in earnest waiting on the edge of your seat for Fuller House to be available on Netflix, it’s fair to say you’ve watched a decent amount of the show in the past. But how much is too much Full House? I know, I know. It might not seem like such a thing is actually possible, but there are actually several signs that you watch too much Full House — and by "too much" I really just mean "a lot," because, seriously, it's not possible to go too far with this show.
Full House might have aired its finale years ago, but it had the kind of entertainment value and message that never truly fades. I still find myself humming the theme song to myself every now and then, and I'm literally in my 20s. My thought process goes like this: if you’re genuinely 300 percent invested in this series several years after it aired, you have to be a hardcore fan. So this one’s for you, Full House maniacs. It's a way to gauge if your Full House obsession is a little — much like the full house itself — bonkers.
