The Fifties Show (#8.6)
6 May 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode shows us the "lost pilot" of the show from the 50's. In this episode the main story is DJ wanting to play guitar and Dan wanting him to play football. Roseanne can't convince Dan because she is a woman. Jackie helps her to a secret women organization and she drinks.

Well it was fun in terms of them making it so 50's style. It was black and white. Had a similar style in jokes and also how they all dressed and talked. It also made fun of sexism and racism in that time. I must say it was kind of weird to see Roseanne where Roseanne isn't the boss of the house.
