I guess they announced this a few months ago but I only just heard that ABC is bringing back Roseanne next year. I loved the original run when I saw it as a kid. I should check it out again, no doubt I would have a whole new appreciation for it as an adult. Very wary about the idea of a reboot. I have yet to see any of the recent spate of revived old TV shows leading to anything worthwhile. Plus, nothing that Roseanne has done since the show ended should inspire any confidence. Still, no matter what, I would watch anything that Jon Goodman is in if I get the chance.
It only just dawned on me what the final season of Roseanne was all about. She was struggling with the grief of Dan passing away and so turned back to her writing, which they had mentioned in earlier seasons but rarely brought up, imagining stories for her family about what life would be like if they were wealthy and could just have adventures. Then in the final episode the truth about Dan’s death comes out. The execution was horrendous but I appreciate the concept now.
