This show changed American television for the better. It was one of the few (and sadly still is) that featured working class families. And used realistic actors to portray them. It showed realistic struggles that come with unemployment and bad economies for the people Hollywood largely forgets.

It was groundbreaking for women behind the scenes and on camera. It heavily featured strong women without demeaning the male characters. They were complex and showed the real lives of women. They handled domestic violence, sexism, breast reduction, female friendships, teen birth control, etc. It included on of the funniest first period episodes of television.

It was also groundbreaking for LGBT issues. One of the first lesbian kisses on primetime network television. It wasn't done for ratings and Roseanne had to fight to have it aired. A hilarious over the top gay wedding. A variety of interesting LGBT characters.

Also: Riot Grrrls and Traci Lordes.

One of the most subversive shows to air. Thanks largely to Roseanne's constant willingness to take on producers and network execs. Just skip the last season.

MY ABSOLUTE favorite, always and forever! I can't wait to have the extra cash to buy the ENTIRE series! I grew up watching this, my mom watched it all the time, Roseanne was like a second mom to me. I felt like I was part of her family to. And it resembled my family a lot. A CLASSIC tv show that EVERYONE needs to see!

This show was ahead of it's time when it first aired. It was the first show to have a working class family dealing with real issues. I loved this show growing up. I was worried when I heard they were bringing it back. Honestly there aren't many great comedy shows out there now. I was happy to see that they are showing how the Conners deal with the issues of today.

It was a great show till the last season. And the ending sucked. The ending wouldn't have been so bad, but winning the lottery and all the episodes after that made you feel you were cheated somehow.
