Thank you. They retcon the stupidest shit on this show. Erasing Jerry and Andy was completely unnecessary. You don't have to bring them on his character's, but they can still actually exist. The little Ed stuff made absolutely no sense, and there was absolutely no reason for it. He has never been seen or mentioned again. Even this stuff with Molly was dumb. If they couldn't have gotten the original actor to answer the door, get a look alike.
The show is clearly playing on our nostalgia for the original (playing these clips), but then shits on the original by changing pointless things. If there was a reason for making changes, I wouldn't have a problem with it, like erasing the lottery season. But they're just being careless. It's not like we haven't seen these episodes in 30 years. They're still available, and Roseanne is still airing in repeats.
