In this YouTube video uploaded earlier this week, someone went through the painstaking labor of completely removing Michelle Tanner from the opening credits and cold open of an episode of Full House. We can all view Full House Without Michelle in our own way, but the way I like to interpret it is that Danny Tanner is a deranged homicidal psychopath, holding his entire family hostage with the the perceived notion of an imaginary child — axe-wielding, and ready to snap should anyone attempt to break down the walls of his hallucination. Don’t believe me? There used to be a fourth Tanner child. And you don’t even want to know what happened to Comet.
“Steph… Just play along. It’s politeness week.” The words never sounded so chilling.
That’s how I like to watch it, anyway.
