This sitcom annoyed me when I was young but it has grown on me as an adult. It’s nice to have a show where the women are center-stage, their appearance doesn’t matter, and they don’t need to be rescued. I’m guessing Roseanne’s sharp banter was funnier back in the 80’s, but it still ain’t bad now. Goodman is excellent as the father.
I’ll never forget the episode where the group of guys finds out Leon (played by the delightful Martin Mull) is gay.
Chuck: W-W-Well, y-y-you know, um, I-I-I know a gay guy. I, uh, his name’s Bill. H-H-He lives in Chicago. M-M-Maybe you know him?
Leon: Yeah, yeah, sure I know him. From Chicago. Gay Bill.
Dan: Smooth, Chucky.
Chuck: What? Nobody else was sayin’ anything!
