  1. This whole cast is just absolute perfection! I laughed through the whole thing and cackled out loud at Meemaw’s “then you met my daughter and didn’t have to travel so far!” Mary’s expression was hilarious!
  2. I’m digging this! I thought Katey Sagal fit right in and I would love to see more of her. I totally get why Dan isn’t ready to pursue anything with her character, but it would even be great to keep her around as a friend of his to show up occasionally. Also, this is the Futurama fan in me talking, but now whenever I see her in something and she starts speaking, all I can think of is Leela. :) I think Darlene and Becky were my favorite part of this episode. I enjoy their relationship a lot. They snipe and tease and joke, but you know they love each other and will absolutely be there for t
  3. Second week in a row I thought this show started at 8:30 instead of 8:00 and missed it. But anyway.... I loved the Halloween costumes, Jackie describing Harris’ terrible driving, Dan playing along with the Invisible Man costume, the return of the Muslim family, and Darlene being over qualified for a job where she had to insult people on command. I’m mostly in this for Darlene, Jackie and Dan, and I’m loving them. Not sure how to feel about the fact that I’m jealous of Darlene’s wardrobe. I want her clothes! :) As for the PC costume culture, I’m with Darlene in which I get the
  4. Finally got around to watching this episode, and I thought it was really good! Blue showing up at the parent/teacher conference was highly inappropriate and I couldn't believe that she didn't see a problem with letting someone else's teenager have sex under her roof. Holy crap. Not a big fan of Blue. She DID give me one of my favorite lines of the episode, though: "I lived on a weed commune where we all shared in the raising of the children." Not going to lie, I cackled out loud, and Darlene's perfect reaction made it even better. Jackie's line about Bev saying how neither of her daughter
  5. I thought it started out a little clunky, but I ended up really liking it. It was funny and heartbreaking and sweet. The scene between Marcy and Dan broke my heart, as did the one near the end between Darlene and Jackie. Laurie Metcalf is a national treasure. I also loved Dan helping Mark pick a seat mate for his field trip, as well as Becky, Darlene and DJ snarking on each other. This is pretty much how my own family deals with death and tragedy, so I’m all aboard!
  6. Oooh....I am intrigued by your ideas and would like to subscribe to your newsletter....:) /Homer Simpson Seriously though, I like this idea! Also, I had a soft spot for Charlotte too. Maybe they could bring them both back.
  7. Love this whole post and agree 100%! I’d like to see everyone who is left have an episode or two where they’re focused on. Personally, I’ve always really liked Darlene (maybe because she and I are a lot alike in personality?) and would love to see them explore more of the Darlene/Becky sisterly friendship that was starting to emerge. My favorite characters in order were always Jackie, Darlene and then Dan, so I’d be perfectly happy to watch them interact with each other and the rest of the cast and have it be more of an ensemble show rather than the focus being more on one person as it was whe
  8. I agree. Speaking as someone who loved the episode An Officer and a Gentlemen, I would watch the crap out of “The Conners” if it was a show lead by John, Laurie and Sara. If they could get Michael and Lecy back, even better. Actually, the more I think about this, the more I like the idea. Dan could be healing for the first season or two, and Jackie (if they tone down Wacky Jackie and bring her personality back to circa seasons 1-2) could function as a support system for him while patching up her own life outside of Roseanne’s influence. They’d make great friends, I think, as the two adults who
  9. He really is. And you can practically hear the pain in his response to her. This whole thing is like a train wreck I can’t look away from. I thought she said she was leaving Twitter. She can’t be sorry for what she said while she’s busy retweeting the people defending her and lashing out at the cast. Love the Sanofi tweet!
  10. Holy crap, you guys. I was in the lab at work when this story broke and just now am getting to catch up. Honestly, I’m surprised it took her this long to finally tweet something vile enough for the axe to come down, but she finally did it. I can’t believe she thought she could pass that off as a joke. Wow. I think ABC absolutely did the right thing, though. I’m going to echo everyone who feels bad for the rest of the cast and the crew....crew members especially, all these people who suddenly lost their jobs overnight who aren’t already well off. That sucks. Like others
  11. “Hello, Dan’s House of Ecstacy” In the early episode “Saturday”, when Jackie calls Dwight cute, Roseanne responds with the suggestion that his parents are what?
  12. I always took the Mark/Dan analogy as more of a comparison of their “hot young guy with the leather jacket and motorcycle” personna and how it affected Becky/Roseanne and their life choices rather than Mark and Dan being anything alike in actual personality. I hope it’s okay to reference this here, but there’s a great fanfic over on the website Archive of Our Own called Gotta Wear Shades that explores this dynamic. It’s old, posted back in 2011, but I just love it for that reason.
  13. Finally got around to watching this episode, and I liked it! Darlene’s attempts at flirting at the casino cracked me up, as did her comment “I didn’t even flirt to have my kids!” I’m really enjoying the sisterly relationship between Darlene and Becky this season. As people upthread have said, I also think they’re much better for each other than Jackie and Roseanne are, at least currently. I like that they’re trying to help each other and nudge each other in the right direction. Dan’s scene in the basement with Chuck, as well as his bashing the crowbar into the wall was so hear
  14. But I think it’s true, though. People don’t like to hear it, but life IS harder if you have kids to support. True, Becky works hard and Darlene definitely SHOULD have taken the casino job to at least have some money and benefits rolling in rather than holding out for something in her field. I’m glad she did take it even though I can understand why doing so would feel like giving up on her writing career, though. As for Darlene’s life being harder, I think it’s a legit point. She has to think about more than herself. She has to make enough money to support 3 people. I mean, just as
  15. I liked this one mostly for the sisterly relationship between Darlene and Becky. Darlene bringing Becky the brochure after she didn’t go for the job (and genuinely encouraging her!!) and then showing her what she looked like in the outfit as a thank you warmed my cold, dead heart. And they both got in some good sarcastic remarks at each other. Well done, show! I think my favorite line of this episode was Darlene’s “and then you can sit under a tree and play guitar with one friend of every color!” LOL! Also Dan’s “you have a honey-baked day too!” just cracked me up. JG’s delivery of
