ABC (ended 1997)
|They do that on all shows. THe kids are one age and then 2 years older. They even did that to Darlene in season 1 she was 11 then season 2 she was 13. I don't know why they do that. I guess they think us fans don't pay attention.|
|Very well said Sparkle. I agree, other then the last season, the writing on the show was amazing, and despite a couple of major holes like this, I thought the continuity was pretty good for a sitcom.|
|I don't hate Tom Arnold, I actually kind of liked him as the goofy Arnie sometimes. In the big picture, it was a stupid role and the whole drama between their marriage is embarassing, but by itself, I laughed at some of the things with Arnie on the show, like when he first comes back after leaving Nancy, and he finds out she's a lesbian.. |
Him and Dan and their friends are all playing poker, and Ty Tilden says "I have a straight" and Arnie flips out, "Straight?! Is that a crack about my ex wife?" and then the other guy puts down his cards and says "Pair of ladies" and Arnie stands up and tries to rush the guy. Stupid humor but it got a chuckle out of me.
Anyway, I digress. I do think the writing was overall better when Tom Arnold was around, and he did write one of my favorite episodes, "PMS I love you".
Gee, maybe this explains why Dan was confused.
I remember an episode where Dan didn't think he needed to go to D.J.'s parent-teacher conference because what could they tell him about a 3rd grader that's so important?
Roseanne: "That he's in the FOURTH grade!"
Episode 10 of Season 8 where Roseanne is filming something for the baby confuses the hell out of me since she references him as still being unborn, yet he was actually born 6 episodes earlier.
Am I missing something?
