Trivia

Wanda Sykes was recently asked about her quitting from the Roseanne reboot at a stand-up presentation she was doing. And when she did, she was terse and to the point: "Roseanne? The thing is I don't have any jokes about it. She said some racist sh-it and I quit." See more »

Goofs

In the first season, the front door doesn't have a dead bolt on it. Then in a few episodes in the middle of the first season, the front door has a dead bolt. Then later on, the dead bolt is gone and then reappears officially in season 2. See more »

Family Show for the '90s
11 October 2001 | by dgordon-1See all my reviews

When this show first debuted in 1988, I thought it was one of the worst shows to debut on TV back then. The kids were bratty, Roseanne's voice was aggravating-the list seemed to go on. A few years later, when the reruns started airing in the late afternoon, I really started appreciating the show for what it was: A family just trying to get by, and solve the problems that come up in everyday life. Along with this, Roseanne's witty "one-liners", and "off-the-cuff" humour, really made this show special. This show dissappeared for a couple of years here in Toronto, but it has been picked up again and is still as funny as it was when it first aired.
