119 OMG I wish I could erase the final season from my brain. This was a very funny show for 8 seasons, which is something really hard to pull off. I just wish they had wrapped it up before the bizarre and obnoxious final season. Oh, and I would not mind at all if the Tom Arnold episodes were physically cut out of my brain as well. As others have noted, what gave this show its huge fan base was the fact that it was based in reality. The Connors had a crappy house but it was theirs and they fought to keep it. They had a totally dysfunctional family but they all loved each other and forgave each other's shortcomings. I grew up in house a lot like that, my brothers and I never knew we were poor and thought everyone had dry cereal and crackers for dinner every now and then. Season 9 arrives and the Connors are no longer poor, guess what? They were no longer funny either and not even remotely likeable. I always thought the series finale was Roseanne giving her fans a big fat finger. I still don't like here and will change the channel when she comes on. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 1:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
120 I agree that it boned it when the Connor's won the lottery. It was losing momentum already with Roseanne getting a gig on the local news to give a "blue collar perspective" among other things, a "very special heart attack," but the lottery win was really the bone it moment. It's one of the better examples, actually. I thought the finale would have been very lame for most shows, but it was a touching finale for Roseanne in that it kind of saved the soul of the show. The Roseanne character was revealed to be a shitty writer, but what happened with the characters "in reality" in the end was much more consistent with where the narrative should have gone. -- Submitted By: (moloko5) on January 5, 2013, 8:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
121 It boned when it deserted the original "blue collar" premise (which had made it so popular in the 1st place). The family dynamic on Roseanne was not far fetched to what many American families were really like. If u were a die-hard fan of Roseanne, then most likely u hated the way it ended. Also i have no problem with gay characters on a sitcom, but first we had Leon who came out. Then Nancy. And then Bev too? It was getting to be a bit much. But that paled in comparison that horrific final episode. So Dan didn't really cheat, he actually died. Darlene was actually with Mark and Becky with David. And like most of Lanford, Jackie was gay too. WTF? I'd rather act as if all of the episodes from the lottery and beyond were never made. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on December 3, 2012, 11:47 am - (5 votes) - Login to Vote

123 For me, it was a change in the humor that "boned the fish". Roseanne cracked jokes about the members of her family in the earliest seasons, but the jokes were delivered with a wink. You could believe that Roseanne really loved her family and was just having a bit of fun at their expense. But in later seasons, the humor seemed to take a turn for the mean-spirited. -- Submitted By: (Mad_Hatter84) on March 25, 2012, 4:12 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

125 Even though the roots were shaken a few times before this (for example, Sarah Chalke stopped trying to play the same Becky Lecy Goransan established during her third episode in the role) the lottery win was so much of a shark jumper the phrase should have changed from "jump the shark" to "win the lottery." I can only assume the phrase didn't shift because if we said, "Sliders won the lottery after Arturo was killed off," it would sound like a compliment. The Conners winning the lottery was the single worst downward shift in the history of television. That's not to say the episodes that followed weren't hilarious. Oh, they were. The problem I (and most fans have) is that the story was compromised to get those laughs. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 12:23 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
126 The first Becky needed her ass beat. Darlene confessing to using drugs. The song and dance dream sequence episode. Roseanne falls asleep and keeps dreaming that her BR is over run withdancers singing her praises. The trip to California where the Conners visit Hollywood in time to see a TV show taping. The wifebeater episode. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on February 23, 2011, 4:09 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
127 It usually just came across as funny - the so - called issues and such didn't matter. There was a certain chemistry to the put down insult humor that reminded me of early MASH epsiodes. The problem was that it stopped being funny. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on December 29, 2010, 1:38 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
128 Sorry, but this couple came off as slobs to me. I mean, Homer may be a slob, but at least Marge isn't one, too. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 9, 2010, 10:03 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
129 Words cannot express my loathing of this show and its star. Her stand-up comedy was amusing, but how that was parleyed into a television show, particularly one as disagreeable as this, is beyond me. And the insufferable inflation of her ego when the show became popular made it even more disgusting. This one jumped from inception. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on October 9, 2010, 12:40 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
130 I loved Roseanne but things got a little crazy with the new Becky, the lottery and Dan leaving Roseanne. The they started havin crazy fantasies like being on Springer?! They clearly ran outta stuff 2 do. -- Submitted By: (LauDor08) on February 18, 2010, 2:03 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
131 Most working class families that do not have any drug issues generally have a better handle on their children. I might even go so far as to say a better relationship with them than most of the well to do as they generally spend more time with them. The Becky Brat thing made me feel as if though she thought that she did not belong there. A certain amount of rebellion is understandable, but she knew her parent's situation, and her words and actions seemed inappropriate. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 10, 2010, 4:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
132 The best thing about this show was the fact that working class people could relate to it. The only thing that got old was that Becky was horrible. The addition of David was also bad. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on October 1, 2009, 11:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
133 The show was good, but Becky was pretty unbearable throughout, in her various forms. The fact that it was about a lower middle class family made it a good one. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on August 30, 2009, 10:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

135 Roseanne, at least during the first 6-7 seasons, was a show that the working-class American could relate to. While the humor was never on the sophisticated side of things (reaching new depths during the Halloween episodes), Roseanne's wisecracks and independent attitude made her a hero for the working class. The show tackled many issues throughout its time, and unlike Full House and shows of that ilk, it didn't pull any punches and told it like it was. Once the Conners won the lottery, though, it not only boned the fish, it boned the shark, the dolphin, the octopus, and every other aquatic lifeform out there. In one moment, 7 seasons worth of buildup went right down the drain. Who can relate to millionaires (besides other millionaires)? Basically, that one moment killed off the show for good. Hearing Roseanne say "money is no object for us" was kinda like rubbing our faces in it. Well, they're rich now, so there goes any sympathy the viewing audience may have had for them, as part of the appeal to the show was seeing how the Conners would manage through tight financial times. No problem is too big that throwing money at it can't fix it. Is it any coincidence that once the Conners struck it rich, the show's numbers plummeted? The finale, where Roseanne came out and said everything from the final season was all part of a book she was writing and that the actual show ended after Season 8 with Dan dying from his heart attack, that Becky and Darlene in real life ended up with the other's boyfriend, that Jackie was the lesbian and not her mom, and other contradictions that we were supposed to believe because Roseanne said it in the final episode, was a game try at salvaging the dignity of the show, but it ultimately didn't work. For the first eight seasons, it was a good enough sitcom, but the ninth season ruined pretty much everything the show had ever accomplished. -- Submitted By: () on March 13, 2009, 3:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
