TV Show Reviews: New shows entice many viewers

“Fuller House” is a new version of the original TV show “Full House” that started in 1987 and ended in 1995. What I like about “Fuller House” is how similar it is to “Full House.”

Fuller House is kind of similar to the original story twenty-one years later, after “Full House” ended, “Fuller House” appeared on Netflix in 2016. On “Fuller House” DJ Tanner is also a single parent but is trying to raise her three sons Jackson, Max and Tommy.

Just like “Full House” she needed some help from her sister Stephanie and her best friend Kimmy who is also a single parent. At the beginning of the show after Kimmy and her ex-husband Fernando split she is now raising her daughter Ramona and lives with DJ and Stephanie. What I like about “Fuller House” is the holiday episode where they get the “Full House” and the “Fuller House” casts together. What I don’t like about “Fuller House” is that it’s not a show for little kids to watch, but, it’s fine for teens and adults.


“Yuri!!! On Ice” is your generic sports anime with attractive male characters, fan service and romantic humor.

The main character, Yuri Katsuki, is a male figure skater that recently found his career in a slump after coming in last place at the Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final. When a video of Yuri skating goes viral online, his figure skating idol, Victor Nikiforov, travels from Russia to become Yuri’s new coach.

The only drama in this anime comes from the consecutive ice skating competitions, and of course the romantic tension between Yuri and his coach. This is the first figure skating anime I’ve seen so far, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Other than the competitions being a bit repetitive, I commend the writers for somehow keeping me interested even though Yuri performed the same two skating routines at each competition.
The ending of the anime was not expected and had a tremendous plot twist. This was a bit disappointing in my opinion, but left more anticipation for the second season, which has not had a confirmed air date yet.


In Beyond Holden, Burkely Duffield, was in a coma for 12 years after he crashed his dirt bike in the forest. While in his coma his mind traveled to a world called the Realm but his body was still in the real world. When he wakes up he has no recollection of the Realm but Willa, who was in the Realm with him, comes back to the real world and remembers everything. Willa helps Holden recall what happened in the Realm and control his random outbursts of power. The antagonist a man in a yellow jacket, is after Holden because he knows that Holden has mysterious powers.

There is action, adventure, a love triangle and mystery in every episode. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves sci-fi and drama. Beyond is aired on Freeform Mondays at 8 PM and on demand.
