15 Most Memorable Episodes Of “Roseanne”
From October 1988 to May 1997, Roseanne became one of the most popular sitcoms on TV through nine seasons and 222 episodes. Like all sitcoms, it had some seasons and episodes which were much more memorable to fans and resonated with them even years later. With a Roseanne revival series launching in March 2018, there is no better time than now to watch the original series again, or at the very least re-watch the very best and most memorable episodes. Although the revival series promises the same Conner family audiences came to know and love, there will be new issues to deal with and new episodes to fall in love with, so take a look back at the 15 most memorable episodes of Roseanne:
15. Fights and Stuff – S8, E25
One of the hallmarks of Roseanne‘s greatness was how incredibly real the show was. Unlike any other sitcom and TV families before, the Conner’s were undeniably relatable to middle-class working Americans who were simply trying to just make ends meet while keeping their family together. Although comedy was at the forefront of many episodes, some hit fans hard because of other emotions, and that is what makes season eight’s “Fights and Stuff” so memorable. After Dan’s heart attack, a worried Roseanne tracked his every move and everything he ate, so when she caught him cheating on his diet, the pair had one of their biggest fights ever. The explosive and vicious interaction between the beloved couple was raw and intense and so emotionally real it left audiences breathless.
14. Death and Stuff – S1, E21
Season one of Roseanne took viewers on a wild ride of humor, sadness, anger and at times complete surprise. The 21st episode “Death and Stuff” is one that fans remember because it was very surprising from start to finish, and so outrageous that is very hard to forget! In the episode, the Conners are going about their weekend activities when a door-to-door salesman stops by and then drops dead in the middle of their kitchen. Unfortunately for the family, the coroner is busy and the family is forced to continue living their lives while a corpse grows cold at their kitchen table.
