How Fuller House inspired Karate Kid sequel series Cobra Kai
Josh Heald said he and his fellow Cobra Kai co-creators Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg -- who co-wrote the Harold & Kumar movie franchise -- dreamed of making a Karate Kid sequel movie. "And then one day, years later, we would find ourselves driving down Sunset Boulevard, staring at a billboard with…wait, is that…Kimmy Gibbler?" says Heald. "With all respect to Andrea Barber, it was an a-ha moment for the three of us. If we now lived in a world where Kimmy Gibbler could be on a billboard, then so could Johnny Lawrence. And if Johnny Lawrence could be on a billboard, well…that meant Cobra Kai was a viable TV series. That’s just solid math."

Is the nostalgia TV trend a kind of backlash to TV's increasing diversity?
"Let's first get this out of the way: There are definite exceptions to the Make (White) TV Great Again trend," says Inkoo Kang, pointing to Netflix's One Day at a Time and the planned reboots of Party of Five, Roswell and Charmed. But from Will & Grace to Roseanne to Twin Peaks to Fuller House, "it's hard not to interpret the current iteration of nostalgic programming as a backlash to TV's increasing diversity — a throwback to the days of Friends and Frasier when people joked that 'NBC' stood for 'No Black Characters,'" says Kang. "Yes, these reboots and revivals comprise only a handful of the hundreds of scripted shows on the air, but many of them tend to be TV's highest-profile projects. The fact that, in their totality, they inadvertently re-entrench the normalcy of all-white casts while erasing women of color and queer people is notable and worrisome."

San Francisco neighbors of the Full House home are ticked off that it’s now owned by the show’s creator
Ever since Jeff Franklin bought the iconic Victorian house last year for $4 million, he has been renovating it to match the Fuller House set. Franklin, said one neighbor, “is a Hollywood producer who has bought the house for commercial purposes—promoting it as a fan destination, using it for promotional events and filming at the house.” As a result of the renovations and renewed interest thanks to Fuller House, the neighborhood has become even more overrun with tourists, with the neighbor describing the problem as “150-250 or more visitors and 50-75 cars per hour, with 1,000 visitors or more on weekend days.”
