More Rusty!
17 January 2019 | by powermandanSee all my reviews

Okay, so I love Rusty. He is just that awesome.

Although Rusty is gaining expectance with the Tanner house, his jokes are not fully over. He types a love letter for DJ and gets Michelle to say that it is from Ricky the paper boy. He just says "give this to your sister" so she gives the letter to Stephanie. Everyone else in the Tanner house reads it and thinks the letter is meant for them. Just genius.

The majority of this episode is voiced-over. We hear everyone's inner thoughts. And the dramatic irony makes this episode perfectly drawn.

One of the best episodes in the series.
