Roseanne

Been watching a LOT of this classic, old-school show of late. I'm of the age that it was going off of the air as I was heading into my teens, but I remember what a hit it was then. Dated? In some ways, yes, but some stellar writing, some hilarious comedy, over two hundred episodes, and a true slice of life that has not been seen on TV since. I wish we still lived in such a straightforward world, where you knew where you stood, hard work mattered, and you could curl up in an afghan (or some acid-wash denim and flannel) at day's end against the idiots of the world. This show was a classic, and it's still as relevant and timely as ever. Am I the only one in love with this gem?

Anything from the 70’s 80’s 90’s looks good compared to the empty, sanitized trite one finds on TV today. Even more so with music.

Gotta love John Goodman!

Always loved it. It went off the air as I entered my teens as well. It’s timeless.

LOL, yes those "sanitized" shows like Game of Thrones, the Wire, the Sopranos, etc. We should definitely go back to the days of shows like "Full House" where people were keeping it real.

I watched ot on tv and own the entire series on dvd and used to rewatch it all continuously. It still holds up today as one of the funniest shows around. I was a real fan of her.
Unfortunately she marred things somewhat by coming back and going batshit, soI'mnolonger able to seeher the same. That being said, the classic show is still a favorite and always will be.

You just woke up. Things were better back in the day. We need you as a new recruit. Spread the word. Change the world. Because today sucks ass.

More of the same misandry. John is portrayed as the usual bumbling idiot who-despite himself- manages to do good things on occasion,though usually by accident.
Roseanne is always awesome.

Was the fat shank who led us down this shitty slippery slope. No wonder she's a hit in tiny Trump town

There were some good shows of the 2000s like Malcolm In the Middle. Great sitcom until they added a baby and didn't know what the hell to do with it. Also, 8 Simple Rules was hilarious, but went downhill after John Ritter passed on because he was clearly the heart and soul of that show.
