The 'Full House' Reboot Should Make Fun Of Itself

What if Netflix's brilliant idea/evil plan is to have the "Full House" actors parody their real-life counterparts?

Whatever happened to predictability?

Netflix happened. And it's "Everywhere you look."

Exhibit A — the headlines:

'Full House' spinoff shows hunger for family entertainment

Have mercy! Netflix to stream 'Full House' reunion, spinoff

'Full House' Reunion on Netflix Is Officially Happening

Netflix, Full House, and the Temptations of Nostalgia

With series such as "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," "BoJack Horseman" and "Arrested Development," Netflix is every-freaking-where.

But how does a "Full House" reboot fit into Netflix's game-changing game plan?

You've seen these headlines, too:

"Netflix Doesn't Want to Kill HBO. It Wants to Kill TV."

"Netflix's not-so-secret plan to kill TV"

"Netflix Is Betting Its Future on Exclusive Programming"

What's more "Netflix" than a show parodying itself and its cast?

What if the actors played the characters playing the actors?

Bob Saget as Danny Tanner as foul-mouthed stand-up comedian Bob Saget?

John Stamos as Uncle Jesse as Greek yogurt pitchman John Stamos?

And featuring Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen as, well, the Olsen Twins?

It could happen.

Just ask the milkman, the paperboy, evening TV.
