Trivia

In the wake of her firing, Bill Pentland, Roseanne's son, has produced a new YouTube show for his mother, Roseanne Barr, which features her interviewing different people every week. The first two episodes featured interviews with ultra-conservative Trump supporter Brenden Dilley; the second interview featured black activist Thomas Mohammed. In the interview with Mr. Dilley, he states that he does think "Valerie Jarrett looks like the character from Planet of the Apes." He said it's not (Jarrett's) face, "it's that haircut she wears."

Just great
21 December 2003 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

"Roseanne" is a milestone in TV sitcoms. It shows a lower class family realistically and the problems and issues they face. It dealt with (for the time) risky issues that you didn't see on TV often. I still remember quite a stir when two separate episodes dealt with one of the girls "becoming" a woman and the son of the family discovering how to "pleasure" himself. Also it had episodes dealing with abortion, gay characters, alcoholism, drug abuse, premarital sex, workplace and sexual harassment, how to deal with elderly parents... None of the characters were squeaky clean or perfect...they all had huge flaws and faults. But all of this was done with realism, great acting and a strong (if sometimes caustic) sense of humor. You saw the characters grow and change over the course of the 9 years it was on the air. It totally fell apart during the last season (egos were going out of control on the set) and ended horribly but the previous eight seasons were just fantastic. And the Halloween episodes were among the funniest ever done for a TV series. Just great all around. If you've never seen it, catch an episode or two--it's worth the effort.
