"A Stash from the Past" is a wise, waggish and exceedingly daring episode from a sitcom renowned for its unflinching audacity. When Roseanne finds a bag of pot in one of the kids' rooms, she's angry-...
Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
'Roseanne' is the story of a working class family struggling with life's essential problems: Marriage, Children, Money and Parents in Law. A classic sitcom, the story circles around the Connor family - a family of five (DJ, Darlene, Becky, Roseanne and Dan). The household's mother, Roseanne, is being accompanied in her quest to keep the family together by her sister Jackie and various friends over the years. Written by
At the very end of Sarah Chalke's first episode after replacing Alicia Goranson in the role of Becky the family is seen watching an episode of Bewitched (1964) and discussing how the producers of the show must've been stupid to think that no one would notice that they replaced the Original Darren (Dick York) with another actor (Dick Sargent). All of the Roseanne characters but one mention that they liked the original Darren better. The one that preferred the replacement Darren was Becky - played by replacement Sarah Chalke. See more »

Often, a deleted scene from an episode would be shown during the credits. Otherwise, in earlier episodes, the normal closing theme would be heard. See more »
When this show first debuted in 1988, I thought it was one of the worst shows to debut on TV back then. The kids were bratty, Roseanne's voice was aggravating-the list seemed to go on. A few years later, when the reruns started airing in the late afternoon, I really started appreciating the show for what it was: A family just trying to get by, and solve the problems that come up in everyday life. Along with this, Roseanne's witty "one-liners", and "off-the-cuff" humour, really made this show special. This show dissappeared for a couple of years here in Toronto, but it has been picked up again and is still as funny as it was when it first aired.
