Is Dan moving on on The Conners? Black-ish goes to the movies!
December 11th, 2018 under ABC, Anthony Anderson, John Goodman, Roseanne. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on The Conners, an old friend (Katey Sagal) comes to town and she eyes on Dan (John Goodman). Is he ready to move on Roseanne? How will his kids react to a woman flirting with their dad?

Meanwhile on the ABC sitcom, Harris (Emma Kenney) gets busted by the cops for underage drinking, and Becky (Lecy Goranson) is the one that is home when the police bring her home. They promise not to tell Darlene (Sara Gilbert) about it, but she finds out anyway. What happens next might put a permanent wedge between the two sisters.

Finally, who did Matthew Broderick piss off to get this role? I understand that they want to give Laurie Metcalf something to do, but this is just awful.

Then at 9p on Black-ish, it is Christmas at the Johnson household. They celebrate by going to movies. Bo (Tracee Ellis Ross) will see anything. The kids want to see the latest comic book movie. Dre (Anthony Anderson), on the other hand, wants to see the Rosa Parks biopic because he thinks his family should support African American movies.

Who do you think wins? After a long debate, Dre wins and his family loses. How will they get out of it? You have to watch the episode to see the takeaway lesson.


The Conners flies the chicken coop
November 27th, 2018 under Roseanne. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on ABC, Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) gets her way on The Conners. She wants Dan (John Goodman) to build her a chicken coop in his backyard. When the kids ask him to do it, he begrudgingly agrees. She has an ulterior motive for getting him to do it. How will he react when she tells him what it is.

Meanwhile, Becky (Lecy Goranson) is dealing with the costs of having a baby. When she gets an offer she cannot refuse, she has to decide if she wants to take it. While she decides if it is the right choice, she looks at her life. Making that alternative sound even better. You will never believe who helps her make up her mind.

Tonight’s episode proves that The Conners can be as good as Roseanne was the first time around.


A Conners’ surprise!
November 20th, 2018 under Roseanne. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on ABC, Becky (Lecy Goranson) has a big announcement that will take everyone by surprise. Will the family support her or will they bring her down to reality? It is The Conners, what do you think?

Darlene (Sara Gilbert) has a new boyfriend (Justin Long) who is a lot like David in a certain way. Her family cannot wait to share that tidbit with her. When dating does not go her way, will applying a new job do just that?

Tonight’s episode was actually very old school Roseanne. Hopefully, we will get more like them.


The Conners continues with serious storylines

Now that The Conners killed off Roseanne, it is time to focus on the rest of the family. Tonight at 8p on ABC, David (Johnny Galecki) is back and he is not alone. He brought his girlfriend Blue (Juliette Lewis) with him and Darlene (Sara Gilbert) cannot stand her. Then when Blue lets Harris (Emma Kenney) do something shocking, Darlene loses it with her. Will Blue be left black and blue?

Then Becky (Lecy Goranson) wants to work for her dad (John Goodman), and he does not think she would be a good fit. When she shows up drunk, he definitely does not want he there. Will she be able to stop drinking for the job?

I just wish they would bring the humor back and make it a family show again because that is what they have been missing since its return last season.


Roseanne says her character’s death made The Conners ‘grim and morbid’
October 17th, 2018 under Roseanne. [ Comments: none ]

Last night we finally found out how The Conners killed off Roseanne and needless to say she did not like it. First she took to Twitter and declared, “I AIN’T DEAD, BITCHES!!!!”

Then she wrote a long post on Facebook with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. She started it off with, “While we wish the very best for the cast and production crew of The Conners, all of whom are deeply dedicated to their craft and were Roseanne’s cherished colleagues, we regret that ABC chose to cancel Roseanne by killing off the Roseanne Conner character. That it was done through an opioid overdose lent an unnecessary grim and morbid dimension to an otherwise happy family show.”

She then says that Roseanne was the only show that was healing the divide in this country. Of the shows that show both sides of the political spectrum, it is the weakest. The Carmichael Show, Superior Donuts and Last Man Standing all did/do a better job showing both sides of hot topic issues.

When it comes to The Conners, just like Roseanne last season, it is not as good as the original run. To me, the chemistry is not as strong. The actors seem to deliver their lines like punchlines instead of letting them flow naturally. They also don’t feel like lower class family in middle America like they did 30 years ago. That is why we liked it so much.

Having said all of that, will I watch? Yes. Will others, that I am not so sure of. Why watch a show that is nowhere near as good as the original, when you can just watch the original on several other networks.

When it comes to how they killed her off. If she did not like the opioid storyline, then why was it part of almost every episode last season. The writing was on the wall, they just had to put it down on paper. And they did. You can’t fault them and it was obvious from day one of her firing that was how they could get rid of her character.
