Storyline

Part 1 of 2: D.J. is busted at school for having obscene reading material. Dan meets with the principal, but dreads it, because he is certain that the reading material D.J. brought to school is one of his porno magazines. He soon discovers that the reading material is far more sick and twisted than just a skin magazine; begging the question of where D.J. got it, and leaving him speechless by the answer. Roseanne and Dan discover that Jackie has been keeping a dark secret, and each of them try to help her by dealing with it in their own, unique, way. Written by Lynne Boris Johnston

Crime and Punishment (#5.13)
30 March 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

DJ is caught with some obscene reading material and Dan goes to school thinking it is his playboy but turns out it is Darlene's comic book. And Jackie doesn't give time to Roseanne because of Fisher but comes over after saying that she feels sorry and will take her out. Yet she is caught by Darlene with bruised back. Fisher beat her up. Dan goes and beats him as well and gets arrested.

Such a great episode. They made it on a serious subject matter with very touching moments but managed to keep it a comedy show.

I didn't expect Fisher would beat Jackie up. He seemed like such a nice character. But I guess this is what it is, people we don't expect to do it do it anyways. Great how Darlene caught her and her reaction to it was very well done.

The story about the comic was the funny part. I guess we won't hear about it again as it was probably done to soften up the serious matter of the main story. We got to laugh about how disturbed Darlene's fantasy is and Dan got to wave to the school principal from the police car.
