NEW YORK, March 4 (UPI) -- John Stamos calls out the critics of his latest sitcom, Netflix's Full House revival Fuller House on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Stamos appeared on the talk show Thursday expressing to Meyers his disappointment in how media critics have bashed the series.

"I was so nervous about this again, because it's so beloved, as you say, and I didn't want to disappoint people. I thought it turned out well and people seemed to like it. I read a couple nice reviews, but then there were these crazy [ones]...These were so wacky, and they're real," the actor said.

Meyers then pulled out a handful of reviews published by The Hollywood Reporter, The Washington Post, A.V. Club and The New York Times.

"It's doubtful that there will be a more painful 2016 TV episode than the Fuller House pilot," Meyers read from The Hollywood Reporter to which Stamos responded, "He was being mauled by a bear when he watched that." "I mean, how [expletive] rude, right?," he joked referencing Jodie Sweetin's iconic catchphrase from the series.

"Fuller House begins as a sitcom family reunion," Meyers continued reading from The New York Times. "It becomes a self-conscious, dated and maudlin reminder of the ceaseless march of time and your inevitable demise," he continued to Stamos' surprise.

It's Fuller House, not Room for God's sake!" Stamos said comparing the comedy to the Academy-Award winning drama.

Despite the negative reviews, Netflix renewed Fuller House for a second season. The new series reunites the majority of the original cast and focuses on an adult D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) as she raises her three sons with sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy's (Andrea Barber) help. Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) and Uncle Joey (Dave Coulier) frequently guest-star on the show.

All 13 episodes of Fuller House are available for steaming on Netflix.
