Full House is back. Twenty-five years since it went off the air, the 80s favourite is now Fuller House.
But no one is talking about the show. They’re only talking about one man. Uncle Jesse – John Stamos – and the sexual musk that is oozing out of him and creeping into every crevice of the rebooted show.
That’s right. John Stamos is so steamy, people are a little creeped out. More specifically, they’re creeped out by his obvious sexy, sexy chemistry with the women who used to play his young wards on the show. Uncle Jesse stood in loco parentis to DJ and Stephanie Tanner, but now he’s got some loco frisson with them as adults.
Today on News.com.au, Kayla Cobb from the New York Post is very disturbed by what she’s seeing:
“THERE’S WEIRD SEXUAL CHEMISTRY BETWEEN UNCLE JESSE AND STEPHANIE:
Between Steph’s new, um … more adult look and John Stamos’ natural chemistry with the world, it feels like there’s something going on between Stephanie and her uncle. Now I’m going to have to scrub my brain from even thinking about that. Have mercy, Fuller House. Please. For our sanity.”
Some parents are also a bit concerned about the sexual overtones of the reboot. The Inquisitr wrote about the innuendo controversy.
“There is plenty of sexual undertones in Fuller House, including an under the radar masturbation joke involving Stephanie and her volcano-making nephew that will likely go over kids’ heads, but was still shocking to some fans. In another scene, Uncle Jesse asks his wife Rebecca (Lori Loughlin) if she’s exhausted from what they did last night. He also makes a joke about semen.”
[Note, it is a very good joke about semen.]
Parents Tweeted their shock at the racy subtext:
Now this doesn’t seem very fair on Uncle Jesse.
And it’s definitely not fair on John Stamos, who plays the Elvis-loving heart-breaker, and was the driving force behind the show’s reboot on Netflix.
Anyone who has ever opened a copy of Smash Hits, a dictionary or their eyes knows: John Stamos is sex. It pours from his every pore.
Greece gave us democracy. But by far it’s most glorious gift to the world is John Phillip Stamos (FACT: The character of Uncle Jesse was originally named Jesse Cochran – but Stamos didn’t feel like that name sufficiently reflected his Greek heritage, so he ensured the character’s name was changed to Katsopolis in season two. Yes, he’s that great a guy).
