In the Netflix sequel to Full House, called Fuller House, DJ Tanner finds herself facing a tragedy even more devastating than what her father, Danny Tanner, had experienced. The show brings back the original cast, capitalizing on nostalgia, but misses the opportunity to explore the depths of DJ's struggles as a single working mother.

DJ's world is shattered when her firefighter husband, Tommy Sr., dies in the line of duty before the birth of their third child. This heartbreaking loss surpasses the grief her father faced when his wife, Pam, passed away after giving birth to Michelle. The weight of losing a spouse and becoming a single mother is an immense burden for DJ, one that should have been explored in greater depth.

However, instead of delving into DJ's guilt and the challenges she faces as a working mother, Fuller House primarily focuses on her love life, much to the mixed reactions of fans. While nostalgia plays a significant role in attracting viewers, it is not enough to carry a great story. The show missed a crucial opportunity to delve into the complexities of DJ's grief and the emotional toll of raising children without their father.

By prioritizing romantic relationships over a deeper exploration of DJ's internal struggles, Fuller House fails to create a truly impactful and relatable narrative. The audience is left longing for a more profound and authentic portrayal of the difficulties faced by single parents in the wake of tragedy.

In conclusion, the tragedy that befalls DJ Tanner in Fuller House surpasses the loss experienced by her father in Full House. However, the show falls short in effectively portraying her journey as a single working mother. While nostalgia can draw in viewers, it is the missed opportunity to tell a powerful and relatable story that leaves Fuller House longing for a more impactful narrative.
