Stop, in the name of love. Before you break my heart.
Full House is an American sitcom television series. Set in San Francisco, the show chronicles widowed father Danny Tanner, who, after the death of his wife, enlists his best friend Joey Gladstone and his brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis to help raise his three daughters, D.J., Stephanie, and Michelle. The show originally ran in primetime from September 22, 1987 to May 23, 1995 on ABC. The series ran as part of ABC's TGIF Friday comedy lineup for its first four seasons before moving to Tuesday nights, where it aired for the remainder of its run. The series originally ran for 8 seasons, and 192 episodes.
After news reporter Danny Tanner's wife Pam is killed in a car crash (revealed in a final season episode to be caused by a drunk driver), he recruits his brother-in-law Jesse (a rock musician) and quirky best friend Joey (a comedian) to help raise his three daughters, D.J., Stephanie, and Michelle, in his San Francisco home. Over time, the three men as well as the children bond and become closer to one another. The show's title is derived from the poker hand known as a 'full house', with the three daughters being "three of a kind" and Jesse and Joey a "pair". Danny (in season 2) becomes host of a local morning television show, "Wake Up, San Francisco". Later, Danny gets a new co-host, Rebecca Donaldson. When Jesse meets Rebecca, they instantly fall in love. Eventually (in season 4), Jesse and Rebecca get married. Then (in season 5), they have twin sons, Nicky and Alex. Throughout the series, Jesse struggles to decide on what he wants to do with his life. In seasons two, he partners up with Joey in an advertising business. In season five, he decides to start a music career. Additionally (in season 6), D.J. gets a steady boyfriend named Steve.
