Sight and Sound
Roseanne stomps around the kitchen in her sitcom's pilot, spitting jokes like artillery fire.
One of the major family sitcoms of the late 1980s/early 1990s was the popular and acclaimed ROSEANNE. Although the antics of its main star, Roseanne Barr (later Roseanne Arnold), and some poor writing eclipsed the show in its later years, the FIRST SEASON remains a model of quality television. The show was about the life of a working-class family in Illinois, the Conners, who are more like a regular family than television personalities. Mom Roseanne (Barr) and Dad Dan (John Goodman) use brutal honesty and acerbic wit to raise their three children: rapidly maturing Becky, sarcastic Darlene, and precocious DJ. Meanwhile, they have to deal with the typical problems of an American family: dealing with relatives, worrying about jobs and money, and struggling to find time for themselves. ROSEANNE was among the first shows on television that dealt with working class life and issues in a truthful and deglamorized fashion, and still managed to remain funny and touching while doing so.
