Roseanne, after this episode, becomes decidedly UNfunny
5 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This season, starting with this first episode, was the downhill slide of "Roseanne". We see the start of her transformation from funny-though-loving and sometimes cantankerous, to a totally bitchy, mother-hating, husband-thrashing unmitigated SHREW. Somehow, it started with the physical changes~~~big cheekbone implants garishly highlighted by slashes of dark blush, the unhealthy-looking fake tan, the dark-lipstick sneer and downward turn of the mouth, the mean eyes and stick-straight hair that hung around the "not Roseanne any longer" face. She's gotten rid of Tom Arnold and her schizophrenia has taken over big time, blaming her family for all her present problems. I think Tom said that Roseanne had multiple personalities and they all hated him.

I don't know what went on backstage, but I have the feeling the cast and staff suffered mightily at those awful hands, always covered by too-long sleeves which made her look ridiculous.

And, I'm sorry, but I'll never figure out why so many characters on her later shows had to be gay. What was up with that??
