Im so excited about the revival of Roseanne. I remember growing up watching Roseanne while living at the Desert Hills Motel in Las Vegas, NV. I have such fond memories there and my daddy was still alive and things were still SIMPLE. No social media, internet, smartphones, computers etc.
So Roseanne, like some other shows such as The Simpsons, Married with Children, have sentimental value to me. I am also aware that The Simpsons are still on the air. I would love a Married with Children revival as well. 😀
My favorite character has always been Darlene and now I feel like my daughter acts like her a bit lol. Becky (either Becky) has always annoyed the crap out of me. I always thought she was such an entitled brat. Still unsure what my favorite episode is, there a few.
Since the original Roseanne showed up on Amazon Prime, I have been watching it in order pretty much daily…although I tend to skip the episodes I never really liked, which is a nice option to have, but I plan to buy the DVD of the whole series as well in case they remove it from Amazon in the future.
I hope they go to Netflix to produce the series, which I heard will only be 8 episodes, which is kind of disappointing but I just love the idea of seeing them in the future though.
I think most of the original characters will be back Roseanne Barr (Roseanne), John Goodman (Dan), both Becky’s (Lecy Goranson & Sarah Chalk), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie),, Michael Fishman (DJ) plus possibly Johnny Galecki ( (David – Darlene’s husband) and I was sorry to hear Glenn Quinn (Mark – Becky’s husband) had passed away.
Based on from various news sources and the Roseanne Facebook Fan group to honor Glenn Quinn, Darlene and David’s son will be named after the character Mark, Dan is NOT dead (pretending Season 9 NEVER happened) and they are in talks with Johnny Galecki about joining. I also heard it should be out by March of 2018.
Interesting tid bit why first DJ was replaced after the pilot episode – he did not get along with Sara Gilbert and he was growing too fast.
I also love the idea of making (vegan) loose meat sandwiches, I have always wanted the chicken t-shirt and an afghan for my couch.
Very excited! 😀
