So I got Season 5 and 6 on DVD for Christmas. Season 5 is AMAZING so real. But I don't think Becky should have been in the intro. She's in like 5 episodes? I mean honestly. Now in Season 6, I do think they gave Sarah Chalke a lot of character ... I don't see why people think they didn't. She's on the show a lot. I think she replaced Lecy Goransen well.
I haven't seen too much of Season 7 so I can't say that Sarah does well in that. I've seen just a couple episodes but I think it was a bad move bringing Lecy back. The problem with Lecy is that in Season 8 she plays a 21 year old that looks the same as she did when she was 15, lol. So that's awkward as Sarah actually looked the part. Sarah, IMO, was NOT too nice. In fact, a lot of the time she was a complete **** Lecy was barely on the show Season 8 anyway. But when Lecy came back it was weird and the ratings did drop so I dunno.
Btw, I was watching the episode in Season 8 where Becky tells Mark she wants to get back on the pill etc. but I could have SWORN i saw the same episode with SARAH CHALKE. I dunno ... It was a while ago. But that was pretty weird.
Season 8 kinda lacks a lot ... Especially the episode where David goes to work in that amusement park. That was unwatchable. Dan is an ass in this season and totally unpleasant. The show got sort of trashy and boring and reminded me too much of Married with Children. I do really like the episode the fifties show though.
Season 9 was UNWATCHABLE. It became the Roseanne and Jackie and the gay crew's show, lol (I am gay ... I'm just saying). I really HATE it. I tried to pretend it didn't happen. Sarah Chalke got like nothing in this season, them winning the lottery was beyond dumb, the prince storyline was stupid, and the last episode is depressing and retarded. HONESTLY, just awful.
I also think it was in Season 7 where David and Becky get really close. I do think Becky and Mark should have broken up at some point. Maybe they would have if Season 9 had gone in a different direction. But honestly most young people don't just have one real boyfriend and it usually doesn't last. Besides, young marriages never last for the most part. You know what I mean? And their marriage was really in the rocks.
It does suck that a lot of people didn't take to Sarah but that always happens when they replace an original. I think she did a really good job, though. What exactly has Roseanne said about her? Can someone give me a quote? Btw someone told me there is an episode where they have BOTH Beckys on there and there is a scene where the first Becky walks through the kitchen and DJ looks at her and then the second one does and then DJ looks all confused. Is that true?
How many episodes was Sarah Chalke in Season 8 btw? I think the fact that they even brought her in to do any episodes is proof the cast didn't hate her maybe the way some people think they did. Yes, I understand Lecy couldn't be there, but they could of made excuses instead but they still had Sarah there. I dunno, you all, help me understand.
Season 8 and 9 - It's just I feel the show was much less funny. It became too much of a typical sitcom, you know what I mean? if it had been a normal show, it might have been fine, but it was Roseanne, a show that was funny yet very real, and it somehow lost both those qualities. Season 9 got really dramatic but in an unrealistic way. Dan would never have cheated on Roseanne IMO etc. etc.
Even if a lot of you like Lecy better don't you think they should have left Sarah on there? I mean, people were probably just getting used to Sarah. The constant switching got confusing. I think because Lecy came back and then left again is why they marginalized Sarah so much in Season 9. Having her there seemed kinda pointless. But Darlene's not in this season too much either. How many episodes are they both in in this season?
