  • Vintage Roseanne

    This episode is, what I think of, as vintage Roseanne. I believe the show could've lasted 20 seasons had the writing stayed stable and remained suburb throughout, and if Roseanne's character was maintained.



    When Roseanne, Dan, and Crystal are at the bridge at the end of this episode it is a prime example of the warmness that the television show, Roseanne conveyed. I love how Roseanne and Dan take Crystal to the bridge, and stand by and watch as she talks to Sonny. At the end, Roseanne puts her arm around her. The show was just beginning and hadn't hit it's heights yet, but this is what I think of when I think of Roseanne. Crystal eventually disappears from the show which is odd if you watch this episode and feel the importance Crystal was to the family. I think this says a lot for how the show progressed through the years. Had the show continued in a similar fashion, Crystal never would have not been continued as a semi-regular character on the show. She was their good family friend! This is the original show that had the potential and should have been capitalized on and preserved over the years. Roseanne was great, superb, but it could've been close to perfect!moreless
  • Crystal went to Sunny\\\'s grave and talked to him and told them about the affair that she had while they were married. She admitted that she knew that he was running around on her, which made her angry, so thats why she did what she did.moreless

    This was a very good episode of Rosanne. I felt sorry that Chrystal had to go through morning the loss of her husband. Even though this episode was entertaining and funny it was also a tear jerker hearing the story about how Sonny was killed. I also felt sorry that at the end of the episode Rosanne\\\'s husband Dan caught a cold from being up by the bridge where Sonny was buried. I hate colds and I imagine Dan hated it when he caught the cold from being outside in the cold snow. aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaamoreless
