In the first clear shot of the back-wall behind the kitchen stove, there is a four foot or so gap between the wall and the stove, with two paintings perpendicular to the stove (on the same side-wall with the wall-cabinets and sink). This is normally how the kitchen set looks throughout most of the shows. In the second clear shot of the back-wall, it is now flush behind the stove with no gap, and the paintings are directly behind the stove. See more »

One of the best episodes
17 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Roseanne's first two years on network television were unquestionably her best. 95% of what she produced during the entire two years gets an excellent rating. Her hilarious take on life and rapier wit in these episodes is incomparable. This episode from late in season 2 is no exception - it is simply superb. Before critics, network nitwits and people like Tom Arnold got to her, Roseanne was the great stand-up comedian we all lived to see. Everyone in the cast was obviously having fun, and Sarah Gilbert became an overnight sensation through her talented performances in episodes like this one. Film actor John Goodman was the icing on the cake needed to attract a solid start-up audience, and the show just lit its own fire and took off. Television like this is sorely missed these days.
