It's getting closer and closer to the release of the reboot of that 90's kid favorite 'Full House'. Now a full trailer has been released. The show is expected to debut on Netflix on February 26th this year. 

John Stamos has already covered exactly what to expect from the show in an interview. Basically, expect Full House:

Netflix just released a trailer for Fuller House including a release date of February 26th. 

The video description includes a synopsis for the new series: 

The Full House adventures continue when D.J. Tanner-Fuller calls upon her sister, Stephanie, and her friend, Kimmy, to move in and help raise her three boys.

Most of your favorite characters (but not the Olsen twins) from the original Full House are returning. In this trailer we get to see a glimpse of the old home and hear familiar voices and new ones utter catch phrases you probably thought you'd never hear again. Who knows why the house is pristinely arranged just as we remember it after all that time, or how long that puppy has been living alone in an empty house. 



The important thing is, they're back! And we'll all be able to binge watch the series before February is over.

This short lived soda was an attempt in the early 1990s by Pepsi to make a caffine free version that seemed healthier than the brown alternative. In this commercial, Generation X is clearly celebrating the return of their beloved soft drink in the best way they know how. 

They still can't come close to the original 1993 commercial when it comes to really capturing the early 90's.

 


Now you can enjoy this apparently refreshing taste of your childhood without buying it on Ebay for $80 like this guy.
You really don't need to chug your Crystal Pepsi like this guy either (WARNING: 20-year-old soda induced vomiting)

If you could ask your future self anything, what would it be?

When Peter "Stoney" Emshwiller was 18, way back in 1977, he captured footage of himself asking questions to his invisible future self. He planned on combining footage in the future and getting some answers.

The short clip below shows the 56-year-old man reflecting on his successes and failures. It is surprisingly heartwarming.

Emshwiller plans on releasing a full-length version of the interview he'll call Later That Same Life, which is currently being funded.

Here's what the filmmaker had to say about the project:

A recent health scare (happily a false alarm) made me realize I ain't gonna live forever, and that it's time to finish this project. So I'm finally going to (gulp) face my younger self and record the other half of the conversation. Then I'll edit all the footage together. The final illusion should be a humorous, touching, sometimes combative, always revealing, totally impossible conversation between a bright-eyed teen and his own middle-aged self.

After teasing this odd video last week, Nickelodeon finally gave up the goods on what exactly they will offer with The Splat.



The AV Club lays out some details:

Arriving Monday, Oct. 5 on TeenNick and all around the internet, The Splat is being billed as a "multiscreen content destination… aggregating the most beloved Nick content from the 1990s and beyond." And while that summary is egregiously grating, what it essentially means is that shows like All That, Are You Afraid Of The Dark?, Clarissa Explains It All, and Legends Of The Hidden Temple are coming back to TV (again) in the near future.

The Splat will take over TeenNick nightly from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., but will also live online at TheSplat.com and via an Emoji keyboard, so CatDog loving 30-somethings can Snapchat each other silly cartoons, or whatever. Viewers can also weigh in on what programming they want to see on the channel, something that TeenNick SVP Keith Dawkins told The A.V. Club is really going to help build the channel. As he put it in an interview, "the multiple screen experience allows us to listen to the audience in ways we never could years ago," noting that while shows like The Adventures Of Pete And Pete might not be on the initial list of shows on the network, that doesn't mean they won't show up down the road—provided there's demand. "It'll all be based on what the audience tells us they want," says Dawkins.



The preliminary website is still only in its rudimentary stage, but surely it will have a list of what shows will be playing and at what times.

After 12 years the world's biggest beverage company will begin selling 12-packs of the citrus drink on Amazon Monday, and it is the first time Coca-Cola has sold a product exclusively online. The company says the move is a response to a surge of nostalgia for the soda.

Surge, launched in 1996 very aggressively as an answer to Mountain Dew. Initially, reception to the beverage was strong, though its appeal faded by the early 2000s.

You can buy the beverage on Amazon here.

Today in unnecessary reboots, Bravo has announced it is redeveloping Heathers, the 1988 cult classic starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, for the small screen:

In the updated take, Heathers picks up 20 years later, with Veronica (Ryder's character) returning home to Sherwood with her teenage daughter, who must contend with the next generation of mean girls: the Ashleys: the daughters of the surviving Heathers.

Lick it up, baby. Lick. It. Up.
