The new John Stamos comedy on FOX Grandfathered opens with Jimmy played by Stamos being a charismatic ladies man and restruant manager. Stamos’ charectar is Uncle Jesse from early Full House to father Uncle Jesse but much older. In other word, Stamos plays this charectar perfectly.
We cut to Jimmy’s next day testing new menu items and trying to get the reservations back up when some kid named Gerald (played by Josh Peck of Drake & Josh fame) walks in introducing his mother named Sarah. The bombshell that is dropped is that Gerald is Jimmy and Sarah’s son and he has a daughter named Eddy (spellcheck on that).
Gerald introduces Jimmy into his granddaughter. Jimmy doesnt know how to react and originaly rejects the idea of a family before chasing down Gerald and accepting his granddaughter and son.
ONe thing I love about Josh’s charectar is that there is still some nerdy weirdness and awkwardness from his Drake and Josh days. A funny moment happens when Gerald and Jimmy are hanging out, Jimmy goes and is changing a kid thats not his granddaughter. I laughed really hard.
TEAR JERK ALERT!! Jimmy takes his granddaughter to work with him while babysitting and she gets a fever and you see Jimmy running with the baby in his arms to the emergency room.
Overall, this is a show that I think you people will enjoy. I give it a 3.5 out of 5. Enjoy the show!
