‘Sharp Objects’ Meets ‘Full House’ in New Video Mash-Up — Watch

"Whatever happened to predictability," indeed.

It’s not a spoiler to say that the HBO limited series “Sharp Objects,” the finale of which aired Sunday, isn’t exactly the happiest of family dramas. But you know what other family has experienced some degree of hardship? Why, the Tanners of “Full House” and subsequent Netflix continuation “Fuller House.”

Sure, DJ, Stephanie and the extended clan living in a fancy San Francisco townhouse aren’t, like Camille (Amy Adams), dealing with the murder of two local girls as well as deeply rooted issues of mental illness, self-harm, and addiction. But the Tanners have experienced their share of tragedy, and the show’s iconic opening credits sequence does make for a natural template to try a new spin on the “Sharp Objects” intro, as crafted by YouTube user DoingOK.

What director Jean-Marc Vallée, novelist Gillian Flynn, and showrunner Marti Noxon might think of this upbeat take on their series is as yet unknown. But the video does a great job of spotlighting the show’s incredible cast at their most sitcom-worthy, especially the underrated Henry Czerny as Alan.

Warning: This video may give the impression that “Sharp Objects” is more family-friendly than it is in reality, so watch with a great deal of caution. Still, it’s a fun take on the show that left us all gasping this summer.

“Sharp Objects” is streaming now on HBO Go and HBO NOW, and is also available on demand.
