79 Although it was unrelated to the demise of the show, Roseanne just lost it around the time DJ's voice started to change. It's a classic example of a show just hanging on for too long. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 29, 2014, 6:54 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
80 The show JTS when Roseanne has a daydream sequence that they all became shipwrecked on the boat Dan's building and the Roseanne cast dresses up as the 'Gilligan' cast (Jackie as Gilligan) and recite every joke from every lame hack comic's 'Gilligan' bit. ("If the professor's so smart, why can't he fix the boat?" HA!) 3 or 4 minutes of this would have been more than enough, but it just goes ON AND ON for the entire episode. (This is the turning point. All the other JTS crap started shortly after the 'Gilligan' episode. I.E., Babies, Weddings, Lottery, Everybody's Gay, etc) -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 29, 2014, 6:53 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
81 I think ABC got on Roseanne's bad side or something. Why did she have to jump her show like that. Dan's heart attack, Darlene's baby, The LOTTERY, why Roseanne why? WTF! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 29, 2014, 6:52 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
82 Where did Bev suddenly get all that money? I mean she just gives Jackie and Roseanne $10,000 to start The Lunchbox and then she turns around and invests another ten grand after that. She also helps Jackie buy the house Dan fixes up with Tim Curry and she's only getting alimony from a salesman (if I remember right). The episodes centered around it were hilarious but I remember thinking, Uhh, so Bev's sitting on that much money but we never knew and it was never mentioned til now? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 29, 2014, 6:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
83 What were they thinking having it turn out that Becky was actually married to David and Darlene to Mark. That was ridiculous!!! Darlene would never marry Mark. And I agree with an earlier poster, that that is so unoriginal, for Roseanne Barr to realize that she messed her show up and make the entire last season a dream. And all of the changes were just so far-fetched. Also, I liked Jackie and Fred together and hated when they split. My favorite seasons are 4-6. Season 7 is when the show really began to go downhill and lose it's essence. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 29, 2014, 6:45 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
84 When it became less and less about blue collar reality and more and more about about Rosanne's LaLa Land. All straight men became incompetent and Landford became this unlikely gay mecca. As if! If I were a gay man in Landford, I'd have been so out of there, it wouldn't have been funny. I sure wouldn't have been exchanging insults with an obnoxious woman at some random diner. The show continued in this Rosanne death spiral, until the logical outcome, the absurd final season, one of the worst ever in a TV series. I'm amazed Roseanne got away with it as long as she did though. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 29, 2014, 6:42 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
85 I love Roseanne but, this was perhaps the strangest ending to any show I have ever seen. It was downright spooky when Rosie proceeded to show the audience what her family was REALLY like! Certain key elements of the show were eerily changed...sister Jackie was the lesbian instead of Mom; Becky and Darlene were married to each others' spouses; and it turned out that her husband Dan had actually DIED of his heart attack the previous season! The show not only jumped the shark, the shark chowed down so thoroughly that even a reunion show is no longer possible! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 29, 2014, 6:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
86 If the credits of the episode have "Roseanne Barr Pentland Arnold Thomas" under Roseanne's pic, you know it's one of the last seasons, and to turn the channel. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 29, 2014, 6:39 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
87 Dan's mother somehow morphed into Debbie Reynolds and tries to kill him. Blighted, working-class Lanford became the Gay and Lesbian capital of the World. Roseanne toyed with the idea of making Jackie a lesbian (her own real-life sister is a lesbian) but wisely kept Jackie a lovable klutz with man problems. Smart Becky hung out with punk Mark (but, then, even smart girls fall for the wrong guys and sacrifice their dreams for a trailer park). Tomboy Darlene got moody and fell for wimpy David (yes, he was introduced to us as "Kevin"). Lecy Goransen left and was replaced by Sarah Chalke who was replaced by Leci who was replaced again by Sarah. Just as things were looking better for the Conners, Darlene got married the same day her dad had what would become a fatal heart attack. It was just too unbelievable at that point. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 29, 2014, 5:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

89 When this show actually jumped was a bit nebulous but it was sometime around the point that Jackie (who by that time has become such a dingbat she shouldn't even adopt a parakeet, let alone a human being) decides on a whim to have a baby on her own and the audience is expected to think that's adorable or funny. It was season 7 I think. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 29, 2014, 5:54 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
90 Too many babies..first Crystal, then Jackie, then Roseanne, then Darlene..then in the last episode it's revealed that Becky is pregnant...they went overboard! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 29, 2014, 5:52 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
91 Crystal she left the show because she and Roseanne got into an argument, in which Crystal (Natalie West) called Roseanne a bitch and then said, "She's married to Tom Arnold so what else could she be?" And then Natalie West's name was erased from the opening credits. LOL. Crystal's character was pretty pointless anyway though and she was quite annoying IMO -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 1:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
92 OK, it was already unrealistic enough that they would hit the $300 million dollar lottery. Think about it, do you know ANYONE personally who hit the lottery for that much money? Of course there are people who do, but it would have been a little bit more believable if it had been a more realistic sum of money. But anyway, not only do they hit the ultimate jackpot, but they DON'T EVEN MOVE OUT OF THEIR HOUSE, or out of LANFORD for that matter. After all the years of complaining about how shitty the couch, kitchen and overall house is, they hit the lotto for 300 MILL and don't even move??? (And if you say that would do the same thing, you are lying). How unrealistic can you get. Lanford was supposed to be this small, boring town in Illinois that they all dreaded (especially Darlene) but yet they win the lottery and don't even buy a bigger house. Yeah, that's pretty believable. Regardless, the lottery storyline was a terrible idea, was terribly written, and definitely one of the worst episodes of the show. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 1:54 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
93 Don't get me started on that winning the lottery crap. It was definitely the final nail in the coffin. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 1:48 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
94 I agree that it was when Roseanne and Tom divorced that the show really started to suffer. If I remember correctly, she and Tom split up in 1994. Well, 1994 is the last year that the show was still up to far and funny. After that, there was too much focus on supporting characters instead of main characters and too many outrageous things happening and the show lost it's charm. Seasons 1-6 feel like Roseanne. But Seasons 7-9 do not. You can tell a distinct difference when watching them. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 1:47 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
95 The second Becky was certainly gorgeous, but too wooden and did not fit in with the Conners. She seemed to Valley Girl-ish (and not to mention, too supermodel looking) to actually be apart of the family. Also, the first Becky would have never been all cool about working at that Buns (knockoff of Hooters) place. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 1:44 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
96 When Roseanne and Tom split up, and he stopped writing for the show, Roseanne got more creative control over it, and I suddenly realized that Tom wasn't talentless. He majorly contributed to the humor and overall essence of Roseanne (even though I could do without the Arnie character). Tom seems like a goofball but the truth is without him contributing behind the scenes, the show definitely started to go downhill, Roseanne just went nuts with the storylines. Gilligan's Island? Baby Jerry Garcia? An entire episode dissing ppl who live in trailers, even though many of the fans probably do?? THE LOTTERY? Rosanne got more power and just went beserk with it. The show was at it's best when she had limited control over the characters, because it was JUST ENOUGH to keep it hilarious and refreshing. Once Tom was gone, Roseanne just said "fuck it" and wrote whatever the hell she wanted. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 1:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
97 This started out as a very funny series. But after awhile, Roseanne's one-liners started changing from funny to mean. Don't get me wrong, mean can still be funny, but somehow in this case it really had dark overtones I found very unpleasant. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 1:36 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
98 Roseanne was amazing for about 6 full seasons. But around Season 7 or 8, when almost everyone on the show was coming out of the closet, or when characters were all suddenly being taken into some LSD type dreamscape, the show began to seem forced and like they were running out of material. I guess Roseanne was tired of making $500,000 per week. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 1:34 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
