Forgotten TV: THE ORIGINAL ROSEANNE: A STASH FROM THE PAST
One of my favorite episodes from Roseanne. There are a lot of great moments and more than that ROSEANNE reflected people who don't often show up on TV. The last three seasons nearly destroyed the first six but not quite. The turmoil surrounding the show always made things iffy but it always felt real. You believed in that house and those characters-two Beckys or not. They were plucky in trying to start their own businesses in standing up for what they saw as right. And John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf were just the best thing on TV at a time when there wasn't as many prestige shows.
