‘Sad Full House’ reduces a sitcom to its most depressing parts

Golden Gate Bridge

A cold fog rolls through San Francisco.

We tend to think of sitcoms as a nonstop joke parades, but most include fleeting moments of emotional conflict and pathos. What if we stripped everything else away?

Well, it ends up being even funnier. In our favorite new webseries, “Sad Full House,” comedian Benjamin Apple compresses each episode of the gently amusing Full House into a 30-second snippet of anguish over failure, betrayal, and death—bracketed by the usual credits.

Sure beats sitting through an Arthur Miller play, doesn’t it.
