Ok, so the whole Roseanne thing happened and now we're left with her family to carry on. I gave it a try, I really did. I'm glad they brought back the original Becky (she's my fave over Chalke) and I think it's cool they now added Peggy Bundy to the cast (yes, I know it's Katey Segal). However, it just seems like it keeps getting worse and worse for the Conners. I mean, how long can a black cloud stay over one family? This is depressing as hell. In the old days, they weren't rich by any means but they were funny and made light of it. Now it's just dark, like slit your wrists dark. I know many viewers have lots of questions like "where's the son?" and "where's this character?" and so on. My question is when did Darlene get to the point she's sleeping with two guys and fighting them off with a stick cause she's so irresistible? Am I missing something here? And the kids... no wonder David left them high and dry. I'm sure they're fine actors but the characters are really awful. Last night the wrong person got slapped. Props to Gilbert for taking that hit like a real woman. I wish Jackie would've smacked the fool out of Harris as well. Poor Dan. He drinks more than ever, looks emaciated, and doesn't want the tail thrown at him by Segal who is much hotter than any woman who has been on that show. Speaking of characters, was Matthew Broderick that desperate for a role? I mean, it's so damn dark it's not funny. It's painful to watch like a slow motion car crash. The only person who comes out winning is Roseanne. No Arnie, Crystal, or Booker. I don't think anyone can salvage this show and Dan is one of my favorite TV fathers of all-time. Just makes you miss the days of when everyone could take a joke and we weren't afraid of being so PC. We really had it good when we could laugh at ourselves and the Conners as a whole. Now I feel like there should be a toll free Help Line number at the end of every episode to donate to Becky's daughter, Jackie for The Lunchbox, DJ (just cause he's a good guy) and Dan for a six pack.
