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. Now that the revival series has been canceled, there are rumors that ABC is looking to create another spin-off. For those of you who loved the original series, 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.
