Bob Saget: What To Watch To Remember The Beloved Comedy Actor



Bob Saget: What To Watch To Remember The Beloved Comedy Actor

With heavy hearts, we look back on the life and career of a man who brought heavy laughs to millions of people of all ages. On Sunday, January 9, 2022, Bob Saget passed away at the age of 65 due to currently unspecified causes, leaving behind an endearing legacy on stage as a comic and screen as Danny Tanner on Full House, among other roles. The following are some other great examples of the best Bob Saget movies and TV shows you can stream now in his honor, starting with the hit sitcom you might have known him best for.

Full House (HBO Max)

A recently widowed TV news reporter (Bob Saget) receives help raising his three young daughters (Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) from his Elvis-obsessed brother-in-law (John Stamos) and cartoonish childhood friend (Dave Coulier) who move into his San Francisco home.

Why it’s worth checking out if you like Bob Saget: While Danny Tanner was nothing like the R-rated stage persona Bob Saget had become known for during his early days in stand-up, leading the Full House cast as the sentimental “lean, mean hugging machine” and clean freak for eight seasons made the actor a household name.

Fuller House (Netflix)

The recently widowed veterinarian D.J. Fuller, née Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure), receives help raising her three young sons (Michael Campion, Elias Harger, Dashiell and Fox Messitt) from her sister, Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and eccentric childhood friend, Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), who all move into Danny Tanner’s former San Francisco home.


Why it’s worth checking out if you like Bob Saget: More than two decades after Full House aired its final curtain call, Bob Saget returned to reprise his role as Danny Tanner on the endearing, cleverly self-referential Netflix original follow-up series Fuller House for a total of 15 episodes.

Stream Fuller House on Netflix.

How I Met Your Mother (Hulu, Amazon Prime)

An New York City architect (Josh Radnor) recalls to his teenage son and daughter a series of memories and misadventures involving him and his friends (Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan) that lead up to the moment he fell in love with their mom.

Why it’s worth checking out if you like Bob Saget: Bob Saget achieved sitcom royalty status again without ever even showing his face in the uncredited role of “Future Ted” on the How I Met Your Mother cast, who narrates all nine of the long-running series’ hilarious and inspiring seasons.

Dirty Work (HBO Max) 

An aimless, immature man (co-writer Norm Macdonald) and his equally irresponsible best friend (Artie Lange) decide to turn their skills in pulling vengeful schemes into an actual business in order to fund surgery for the friend’s ailing father (Jack Warden).


Why it’s worth checking out if you like Bob Saget: The more raw, unfiltered, and unapologetic sense of humor that Bob Saget is otherwise known for found a new life in 1998 when he directed Dirty Work, which is also one of the funniest and simply best movies starring Norm Macdonald – another beloved, trailblazing comic and friend of Saget who sadly passed away in September 2021.

Rent/Buy Dirty Work on Amazon.

Farce Of The Penguins (Google Play)

An analysis of the mating rituals performed by penguins in the Antarctic, as seen through the eyes of one cynical, foul-mouthed bird (Bob Saget) and his buddy (Lewis Black) during a 70-mile trip in search of love in the snow.

Why it’s worth checking out if you like Bob Saget: The raunchier side of Bob Saget became especially apparent in 2006 when he wrote, directed, co-produced, and lent his voice to Farce of the Penguins – a mockumentary that, clearly, aims to take shots at the hit, Academy Award-winning documentary March of the Penguins by placing recordings of its star-studded supporting voice cast (including the aforementioned Norm Macdonald and Samuel L. Jackson as the Narrator) over actual nature footage.

Benjamin (Amazon Rental)

A divorced man invites several loved ones to his house to help him hold an intervention for his teenage son, whom he assumes is a drug addict, but the event only proves successful in uncovering the personal issues that everyone else involved is facing.


Why it’s worth checking out if you like Bob Saget: After more than a decade since the release of Farce of the Penguins, Bob Saget returned to the director’s chair in 2019 for the RedBox exclusive Benjamin – an uproarious dysfunctional family comedy also featuring a star-studded cast including Saget, Rob Corddry, Mary Lynn Rajskub, and Parenthood cast member Max Burkholder in the title role.

Rent/Buy Benjamin on Amazon.

The Comedy Central Roast Of Bob Saget (Paramount+)

For the 2008 edition of Comedy Central’s annual celebrity roasts, the man of (dis)honor in the hot seat was Bob Saget – but, as usual, none of the fellow celebrity roasters were safe from harm either.

Why it’s worth checking out if you like Bob Saget: Speaking of uncovering everyone’s issues (but all in good fun, of course), that was essentially the goal of the star-studded dais featured on The Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget, in which the man of the hour was ripped a new one with brilliantly brutal humor by the likes of his friend, Norm Macdonald, his Full House co-star John Stamos (serving as Roast Master), Academy Award winner Cloris Leachman, and more.

Historical Roasts (Netflix)

Roastmaster General Jeff Ross hosts a series of nights in which celebrities impersonate notable figures in history to poke fun at their shortcomings, while also showing appreciation for the enduring legacy they have maintained posthumously.


Why it’s worth checking out if you like Bob Saget: Bob Saget’s Comedy Central roast would not mark the last time he was subjected to a blockade of ribbing humor as, in 2019, he spent a night in the hot seat as the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, in the first episode of the Netflix original comedy series Historical Roasts, which also featured an appearance by John Stamos as none other than John Wilkes Booth.

Stream Historical Roasts – Season 1, Episode 1 on Netflix.

Bob Saget: That Ain’t Right (HBO Max)

In front of a live audience at New York University’s Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, Bob Saget riffs on being a divorced single father, performs a song about his Full House character’s questionable sexuality, and much more.

Why it’s worth checking out if you like Bob Saget: A year before he faced raunchy, ribbing humor at his own expense in his Comedy Central Roast, Bob Saget released That Ain’t Right – an HBO original comedy special that would forever prevent viewers from ever being able to look at one of their favorite sitcom dads the same way again.

Bob Saget: That’s What I’m Talkin’ About (Amazon Prime, Tubi)

Bob Saget provides a live audience at Seattle’s Moore Theatre with more amusing observations, revealing personal anecdotes, and self-written ballads, filtered through his signature filthy perspective.


Why it’s worth checking out if you like Bob Saget: Bob Saget would continue his attempts to convince the public that he was not at all like Danny Tanner with an even raunchier, incessantly foul-mouthed stand-up comedy special called That’s What I’m Talkin’ About, which first aired on Showtime in 2013.

Stream Bob Saget: That’s What I’m Talkin’ About on Amazon Prime.

Bob Saget: Zero To Sixty (Amazon Prime, Tubi) 

Through more funny stories about his career highlights and songs about this and that, Bob Saget proved in this one-hour performance at the Williamsburg Hall of Music in Brooklyn that, having just reached his 60s at this point, his comedic stylings had matured… a bit.

Why it’s worth checking out if you like Bob Saget: Helmed by prolific comedy special director Jay Chapman, 2017’s Zero to Sixty would be the last solo stand-up show that Bob Saget would release, but would see him go out on a high note by bringing out a comparatively gentler and fully genuine side to the stage.

Comedy Warriors: Healing Through Humor (Tubi)

A group of people whose lives have been irrevocably changed by devastating accidents while serving in the United States military seek a way to cope in poking fun at themselves on stage.


Why it’s worth checking out if you like Bob Saget: In the ultimate move to show how much of a genuinely gentle soul he is, Bob Saget volunteered to be one of several famous comics (also including Zach Galifianakis, Lewis Black, and The Office cast member/writer B.J. Novak) coaching wounded war veterans to follow their stand-up dreams as seen in Comedy Warriors: Healing Through Humor – a heartwarming 2013 documentary from director John Wager.

Of course, we also cannot forget Bob Saget’s stint as the first host of America’s Funniest Home Videos or his iconically unrepeatable cameo in Dave Chappelle’s stoner comedy Half Baked in 1998. It is movies and TV shows like these, along with the titles above, that we are thankful to have to keep the memory of this beloved comic, actor, and human being alive.

Wait, Is Warner Bros Scrapping Its $70 Million Batgirl Movie? Rumors Are Swirling




Wait, Is Warner Bros Scrapping Its  Million Batgirl Movie? Rumors Are Swirling

After years of anticipation from DC fans, Warner Bros finally found a way to introduce Barbara Gordon to live-action, announcing a solo movie for the hero with the developing Leslie Grace-led film. Batgirl, which finished filming earlier this year, has been scheduled to hit HBO Max sometime this year, however according to a number of new reports, Warner Bros doesn’t want Batgirl to see the light of day. Outlets are reporting that $70 million project is being scrapped after test screenings scared off the studio on the movie. 

Batgirl has been called “irredeemable” by a reported “top Hollywood source” found by The NY Post. Per the report, the movie will be “shelved,” but it has yet to be confirmed by the studio if it’s purely a rumor or a bombshell piece of news for one of Warner Bros’ upcoming DC movies.  

The Wrap backed up this report, sharing it had additionally heard via insiders that the movie “did not work” for studio executives – made by Bad Boys For Life and Ms. Marvel directors Adil El Arbi and Billal Fallah for a reported budget of over $70 million (though it may have ultimately cost the studio $90 million by the time cameras finished rolling). 

The news could perhaps be the product of the recent change in Warner Bros’ leadership, with CEO David Zaslav becoming the new big boss since WB merged with Discovery. There was some rumored talk of the previous WB chair Toby Emmerich considering Batgirl for a theatrical release rather than a HBO Max exclusive, however, but the new reports suggest the film isn’t testing to the level of a big-screen project and may be removed from getting any kind of release. 

Batgirl would not only introduce Leslie Grace’s Barbara Gordon, but is features a stacked cast including the return of Michael Keaton as Batman and J.K. Simmons as James Gordon. Brendan Fraser plays the film’s villain, Ted Carson a.k.a. Firefly. It’s arguably unheard of for a project as high-profile as this one to lose any form of avenue for distribution. 


Apparently, a move like this is not uncharacteristic for Warner Bros’ new CEO, however, who previously shut down the failed streaming service CNN+ weeks after it launched (it reportedly cost $300 million to put together). There is some restructuring of DC projects currently underway behind the scenes, with David Zaslav on the search for a someone to fill a role much like Marvel boss Kevin Feige has at Marvel Studios. 

Coming off San Diego Comic-Con late last month, Marvel Studios announced and showcased a lineup of projects planned until 2025 including two more Avengers films, whilst DC did not bring anything from Batgirl to its panel. Instead, Warner Bros chose to only focus on Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Black Adam, both of which have set release dates later this year. Warner Bros. Discovery is set to report its earnings for this past business quarter on Thursday; it’s possible we’ll learn more then.

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: 5 Feelings I Had While Watching The Season 3 Premiere




High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: 5 Feelings I Had While Watching The Season 3 Premiere

What time is it? Summer time!

Well, that’s what the students of East High are saying in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. I know, the name is a mouthful, but honestly, this show is a whole lot of fun and if you haven’t watched it, you definitely should. The first two seasons were great, from the songs in Season 1 to the drama in Season 2, and when it was announced that the series would be getting a Season 3 and 4, I was all on board. 

Now that I have watched the first episode of Season 3, I am even more excited for the next episodes to come, and that premiere has me all in my feelings – specifically these five. 


Man, this show makes me so nostalgic for when I was younger. 

Don’t get me wrong, I would never travel back in time to then, just because I was so young and didn’t know half the stuff I know now, but there is just something about listening to the soundtrack of some of these original songs from the High School Musical movies that just get me. While we don’t get many songs in the first episode, we get the classic, “What Time Is It” from High School Musical 2 within the few three minutes of the show and ugh, the memories. 


If you were a tween or kid back in 2007 and watched HSM2 when it premiered on Disney Channel, you know this song just as well as I do. And for years, I sang this song on the last day of school – heck, I still sing it now whenever warm weather comes around and I’m two years out of college. I love this music, and I can already tell from just this first episode that this season is going to make me so nostalgic. 


I’m really curious to see what they’re going to do with this camp in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. 

For those who don’t know, the first two seasons of this series were pretty much based around the first film’s premise. The show takes place in a world where the movies exist, but instead of the actors from the High School Musical cast that we’re familiar with, we are introduced to students who are auditioning for those iconic roles. And over the last two seasons, we’ve watched them grow into brilliant performers while singing in productions of both High School Musical and Beauty and the Beast, with covers and original songs all along the way. 

But the whole entire point of the first two seasons was that this show took place in the same high school where the movies were filmed. So it’s only natural to think that the second season might end up happening at the country club that was in High School Musical 2, but nope – we are at a summer camp, something that was never talked about in the original movies. 

The arrival of everyone coming to this summer camp is fun, but it makes me wonder how they’re going to include the songs from High School Musical 2 into this season when it’s not at the same location as the film, but it’s still interesting to watch, nonetheless. 


Dude, I love Olivia Rodrigo – and I mean that. This girl has done so much these last two years and watching her in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is always a joy. 


But what really makes me so proud of her is that I’m not even just proud of the actress, but the character as well. Nini is this young star who is a little afraid to take these big risks but she does so anyway, knowing that she has this big break she can’t lose, which was the big theme of this first episode. She goes away on this road trip with a producer over the summer so she can record songs, giving her that shot, and I am so proud of her for doing that. 

Olivia Rodrigo plays her perfectly, and while I know that her character was demoted to a guest role thanks to Rodrigo’s budding music career, I can’t help but be proud, because wow, she has blown up. It makes me want to watch her documentary on Disney+ again


I know I said earlier on that I was curious as to how they’re going to really change up this season with this new location. But, about twenty minutes in, I genuinely was feeling eager to see where this show would go – specifically the dynamics of new characters. 

For two seasons, we have pretty much been surrounded by the same characters, and while we have grown to love them, I think this season was the one where we truly needed a change in not only scenery, but characters as well. And this first episode brought a ton of them in. 

One of the scenes that got me really eager to see what happens with these new characters was when Gina, Ashlyn and Kourtney, three clear as day theater kids, find out they have to share a cabin with Gadget (a new character) and two other girls – and you can clearly tell at first that they are not feeling the vibe, and you can almost smell the problems from a mile away. 

That screams great television, and it’s got me wondering how much more drama this show is going to produce over the next episodes with these new dynamics. I’m so eager to see. 



Seeing Corbin Bleu in the premiere episode made me very excited to see where this fictionalized version of him is going to go next. 

Usually, when it comes to the original members from the High School Musical movies, we’ll get some pictures from them from the old high school – like Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron both recently taking pics there in 2022 – but I didn’t think anyone would come back to the show. We had Lucas Grabeel and Kaycee Stroh in Season 1 but no one in Season 2, so I’m super pumped to see Corbin Bleu back for this season.

Not only that, but Jason Earles. Do you guys know who he is? The moment I saw him as Dewey, the director of Camp Shallow Lake, I practically screamed. This man is Disney Channel royalty. He was not only a co-star on Hannah Montana but also on Kickin’ It and I can’t believe he is in another Disney show and it has me so excited. 

I’m not sure how often he and Bleu are going to be on the show, but I know for a fact that those two appearing on that stage has me excited for what this season holds and I can’t wait to see what’s next. Could Zac Efron be next?

What are you guys looking forward to with Season 3 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series? All I know is that if I don’t get a cover of “Fabulous” by Carlos in this season, I will riot. I demand it, Disney+!

The School For Good And Evil: 6 Quick Things We Know About The Netflix Movie




The School For Good And Evil: 6 Quick Things We Know About The Netflix Movie

Book adaptations of big-time novels always seem to go over well with audiences, and have for plenty of years, with movie sagas such as Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings taking over the box office. But, a newcomer is arriving on the movie scene, one which should have been adapted almost as soon as it came out, if you ask me.

The School for Good and Evil, an amazing addition to the fantasy genre, is finally getting its own adaptation into the film world – but not in theaters. However, it will be appearing as a Netflix movie, on the popular streaming website. However, what else do we know about this upcoming film? What is it going to be about? Who is going to be in it? There are plenty of things that you might not know, but we do. Here are some quick things we know about the upcoming Netflix film.

The School For Good And Evil Release Date Is Set For October 21

Mark your calendars, fantasy lovers, as The School for Good and Evil is going to be coming out as part of the 2022 movie release schedule! Announced with the official poster from the Netflix Twitter page, it was confirmed that The School for Good and Evil would release on the popular streaming platform in Fall 2022, specifically on October 21. 

Talk about a great addition to all the fun Halloween movies we’ll be watching during that time of year – I can always use a little good and evil in my life.

The School For Good And Evil Has A Star-Studded Cast

With an adaptation like The School for Good and Evil, we all knew that the cast needed to be amazing. And, luckily, there’s no shortage of amazing additions to this Netflix movie. First, let’s take a look at the two leads characters of the film, Sophie and Agatha, where the story begins. These two roles will be played by Sophia Anna Caruso, known for her role in the Broadway musical Beetlejuice, and Sofia Wylie, who stars on a Disney+  show you really should watch, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.

Wylie is especially excited for her role in The School for Good and Evil. In an interview with MTV, she talked about her part as Agatha and how she’s excited to “bring some realness” to the character that hadn’t been seen before. She described Agatha’s struggles with internal and external beauty through her own experience, saying that it’s something she can relate to and that it’s an important message to teach.

That’s something that I personally can really relate to, that voice inside of your head, how much power it has. I deal with those doubts and those insecurities. And I think I can really bring some realness to Agatha in that sense because I know, as a teenage girl, it can be very difficult to overcome that voice.

Adding on to this cast, Deadline reported that two megastars, Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington, signed on for two of the main roles in the upcoming film. Theron is set to play Lady Lesso, and Washington will portray a teacher at the school, Professor Dovey.

In addition to these two, in another article, Deadline reported that Laurence Fishburne, known for his roles in The Matrix trilogy and many other films, as well as action star Michelle Yeoh, from movies such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Everything Everywhere All At Once, Crazy Rich Asians, and her TV role in Star Trek: Discovery, have stepped up to be in The School for Good and Evil. Fishburne will play the Schoolmaster – a role that sounds quite fitting for someone of his talents, and Yeoh will portray another teacher, Professor Anemone.

Also for the film, Demi Isaac Oviawe, Kaitlyn Akinpelumi, and Freya Theodora Parks will play Anadil, Dot and Hester, three young women who are a part of The Coven in The School for Good and Evil, as confirmed by a behind-the-scenes look with the author of the original novel, Soman Chainani on YouTube.

Already, this film is shaping up to be filled to the brim with some of the Hollywood elite. I, for one, can’t wait to see what they do with the material they are given, because it’s about to get magical.

The School For Good And Evil Will Follow The Bestselling Book Series

For those who don’t know, The School for Good and Evil is composed of several novels in a series. Netflix confirmed that this new movie will be based on the series by Soman Chainani, and from the premise of the film, it’s looking to be exactly like the first novel.

As confirmed by the description from the trailer for the new movie on YouTube, The School for Good and Evil is going to follow two best friends, Sophia and Agatha, who are swept into a world of trying to balance both good and evil when they are given different roles, but this in turn causes their lives to turn upside down. 

I’m already on board for a story like this. Two opposing personalities who end up being trained in styles that they thought they weren’t aligned with? Thrown into unlikely situations? Fantasy elements? My god, I can almost feel the franchise coming. Netflix has a great addition with this one.

Bridesmaids Director Paul Feig Is Directing The School For Good And Evil

I don’t think there could have been another perfect choice for the director for The School for Good and Evil than Paul Feig. The legendary director has produced some of the biggest comedic hits in the last ten years. For example, Feig directed the smash-hit Bridesmaids back in 2011, the 2016 remake of Ghostbusters, the Emilia Clarke Christmas comedy Last Christmas, the comedy thriller, A Simple Favor, and so many others.

Besides movies, Paul Feig has also directed multiple episodes of several incredible sitcoms, such as The Office, Arrested Development, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock. The School for Good and Evil novels have an amazing comedic element to them, and I can only imagine what a comedic director like Paul Feig will bring to the table in this new film.

Finding Neverland Screenwriter David Magee Wrote The Screenplay For The School For Good And Evil

When it comes to an adapted screenplay, you always have to make sure that you find the right person to do it, because with novels, there are so many details that need to somehow make it into the movie. The School for Good and Evil found its screenwriter in David Magee.


Magee is a perfect choice, because not only has he been around the business for some time, he’s had plenty of experience in writing fantasy, working on films such as the Academy-Award winning Life of Pi, the Disney sequel Mary Poppins Returns, and wrote the screenplay for Finding Neverland, the story of the author who created the legendary character, Peter Pan. Truly, he has great experience up his sleeves, and I’m eager to see what he’ll do with the fantastic story that is The School for Good and Evil.

The School For Good And Evil Has Finished Filming 

As you can expect for a film that already has a trailer, The School for Good and Evil finished production for their film not too long ago. From a tweet on Twitter from Netflix Geeked, it was confirmed back in July of 2021 that filming had wrapped on the film and was entering into the post-production phases. 

Watch The Trailer For The School For Good And Evil 

If you haven’t yet seen the trailer for The School for Good and Evil, be sure to watch it now, as you won’t want to miss out on the magic. 

With an amazing cast, awesome story, and some really cool looking set pieces featured in the trailer, The School for Good and Evil is looking to be an amazing addition to Netflix’s original film line-up. I can’t wait for this movie to pop up as part of the 2022 Netflix movie schedule. I’m practically counting down the days.
