Hilarious and honest show that took place in the late 80s, early 90s. Roseanne kickstarted the careers of all of her costars. They repaid her with zero gratitude (excluding John Goodman, who still lives Roseanne) over politics. Not race. POLITICS. AND THEY KNOW IT. ONLY blind and stupid sheep dont see what really happened. Roseanne was hilarious. Still is. These people are ungrateful morons

One of the best shows ever made. It was so ahead of it's time,. When other sitcoms were sickly sweet, Roseanne tackled teenage sex, unemployment, gay relationships, periods, and the general real life issues. And did it hilarilously! Top actors (apart for DJ, but he was young) and awesome writing. Seasons 3-5 are my favourite. I never get sick of it. The first time round, I related to Becky and Darlene and had a major crush on David. Watching it as an adult, I can relate to the adults more. Darlene still cracks me up.

Dan"John Goodman"was a father I wished I had growing up.I wanted 2b in that house. Sara Gilbert&Johnny Galeki were my inspiration for following my goals of writing.I love the conners,but it's not a real home without the loudness of Rosey"like her or not".And Jackie still is one of my favorite actor's along w/J.Goodman.I really hope Darlene&David become a fam/with there kids.The best eppisode ever "brain dead poets society"season 2. "Darlenes poem".I treasured this household coming up&Judy bloom
