    Jesse's last name was Cockran(SP?) in the first episodes. Then his name magically changes to Consopolis (SP?) Anyone notice this?

    Yeah I noticed but I read on IMDB.com that they changed it to show Jesse's Greek heritage.

    Perhaps Cockran was Jesse's alias, because he was a bit distanced from his family at first.

    Actually, they're spelled Cochran and Katsopolis.

    Inconsistencies in a show are super annoying wether they effect the outcome or not. It would have made everything better if they would have given a reason in the show for the changing of the last name - such as Jesse using a different last name for his band or whatever. It would ave just taken a line. Or atleast they could have made a joke out of itlike Fresh Prince or Roseanne did whena kid got years older in just one season or when a new actress was brought in for a certain character, respectively. Of course, this wasn't a major issue and was in most senses no big deal, but still annoying =P
