Carly Rae Jepsen’s Fuller House Theme Song Is Probably the Best Part of the Show

Guys, I have to confess something that I'm not very proud of. For the past hour or so, I've been listening non-stop to Carly Rae Jepsen's version of the Full House theme song “Everywhere You Look,” released ahead of tomorrow's Fuller House premiere on Netflix. I've also been singing along to it. With passion. Oh God, what's happened to me? I don't know who I am anymore. I'm supposed to be groaning about this revival at every mention of it, not rocking out to the theme song all afternoon.

To be fair, though, just because I like the theme song doesn't mean I'm going to like the show. In fact, it will probably be the best part. The same can arguably be said for the original version of the song, by Jesse Frederick. It's damn catchy, and Carly Rae makes it even catchier, as is Carly Rae's way. I've already had one foot in the Carly Rae Jepsen Fan Club for awhile now, but this song is making me stand firmly across the threshold. Don't write her off as a one-hit wonder who can't draw a crowd to a tea shop, guys. She's good.

Unfortunately I don't think it's enough to get me to unironically watch Fuller House. I'll still probably give the first episode a try, just to see how bad it is. I mean, have you seen the reviews? Everywhere you look (everywhere you look), a bad one is waiting to make you laugh your ass off. (Okay, that wasn't my best work, I'll admit.) The A.V. Club called it “a porn parody without the porn,” which might be the single greatest thing I've ever read. What ever happened to predictability? Apparently it's alive and well in the Tanner family. Unlike some of the family members.
