Sit down, everyone, Uncle Jesse has another lesson to give. John Stamos, the man behind the popular "Full House" character, is sharing a piece of his mind after an opinion piece in The Huffington Post bashed '90s sitcoms for being unrealistic.
"They distorted my expectations for reality," Annelia Alex wrote about the decade's shows, including Stamos' program, "Friends," "Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place" and "Will & Grace." The "lies" she "learned from dumb TV" that she watched between the ages of 12 and 14? Adults chasing after kids for heart-to-heart chats and falling in love with your cute neighbor are just two examples.
"Don't blame the way your life turned out because of TGIF," the actor wrote on his Facebook page, referencing the popular block of sitcoms that included "Full House." "If you're lucky enough to have kids — maybe you should have them watch re-runs of 'Breaking Bad' — see how that turns out."
Stamos went on to say that he understood her point of view and even agreed that "we did some silly unrealistic stuff," but said the sitcoms also brought a lot of happiness to viewers.
"I bet more good than bad came out of those shows. Sorry it didn't turn out that way for you, Annelia, or you simply just weren't bright enough to take the good from what we did and laugh at the rest," Stamos closed.
The TODAY anchors agreed with the actor.
"Did you grow up in a bubble?! Did you have no parents?!" Al Roker said. "C'mon, they're sitcoms! They're on TV! They're not documentaries! Do people walk around her house laughing?"
"I actually have a studio audience in my home," Willie Geist joked.
Alex wrote in a new post Monday that she was surprised by the response, including the fact that Stamos himself had something to say about her piece.
"I didn't know that John Stamos was still a media presence," she wrote, explaining that it was her mother who informed her of the actor's ever present Greek yogurt TV commercials. Stamos, who starred on "Necessary Roughness," also reunited with several of his "Full House" co-stars for a Super Bowl ad and other appearances, all within the past year.
Alex went on to thank Stamos for "advocating wholesome programming and shaming me, a cynic and obvious failure at life."
