  • fitting end to a great show

    For the most part, critics panned this episode. After all, Roseanne had pretty much gone down the tubes in it's later years with rather silly story lines.

    But this final episode was so fitting and necessary, that it could be easily seen why some were left with a bad taste in their mouths, yet others, such as this writer, where left feeling sad and chilled about the outcome.

    Still, it was a wonderful conclusion to a terrific show.

    When Roseanne sits down alone on that old, dusty couch, it fades out to the hauntingly beautiful voice of Phoebe Snow singing the words to the shows song.

    There was not show like Roseanne on television, and after already 9 years off the air, there probably will never be.
