Damn, that's almost reason enough to watch it!
|Hop head |
watched the first episode, and most of the second last night,
ok so far, I did LOL a few times
acting is typical, as in not that great, etc etc
wont go out of my way to find the next episodes
worst attempt at acting since.....Land of the giants
I wonder now why I liked the original , so much

Neck Ties, Hats and ammo brass, Never ,ever touch'em w/o asking first
Jackie's acting is way over the top. She is the worst of the lot. Goodman is always solid and I think Roseann has done a decent job of preserving her character. The rest are just so-so.
I will hang in there for now.
.....never marry a woman who is mean to your waitress.
Dang. All they're missing is a 6 foot tall aspirin bottle and a pencil the size of a telephone poll.
Maybe Jackie is showing how throwed off the nasty women are
And no, junior not being able to hold still for 5 seconds is not a disability.

Just got around to watching the 1st episode. I watch very little TV anymore so I could not tell you how long it has been since I have watched a sitcom. But everything seemed choppy and over acted. They seemed to crack a joke and then wait for the laugh track. Just did not seem to flow very fluidly. I don’t recall thinking this with other sitcoms.
Actually, I take that back I tried to watch an episode of The Ranch I think it was called and had to shut it off because the laugh track was way over the top.
Is this a new trend or did I just not notice years ago?

I'm enjoying the reboot and I've laughed out loud quite a bit. It feels like they're getting back in the groove. It helps that I loved this show when I was a kid.

Well, that's the end of that.
People really are imbeciles sometimes. And when you combine moments of pure idiocy with a platform like Twitter...well, you get your highly successful show canned.
ABC cancels 'Roseanne' after star's racist Twitter rant
by Frank Pallotta and Brian Stelter @CNNMoney

ABC canceled its hit sitcom "Roseanne" on Tuesday after the show's biggest star, Roseanne Barr, went on a racist Twitter rant.
"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," ABC said. The cancellation comes just months after the show premiered to huge ratings.
Barr had earlier apologized and said she was "now leaving Twitter."
Following Barr's Twitter rant, one of the show's consulting producers, Wanda Sykes, said she's done with the show. "I will not be returning to @RoseanneOnABC," Sykes tweeted.
And Sara Gilbert, who plays Barr's daughter on the ABC sitcom, tweeted that Barr's comments are "abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show."
Gilbert added: "This is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, as we've created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love — one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member."
Barr is notorious for tweeting about pro-Trump conspiracy theories and other controversial topics. This week she repeatedly attacked prominent Democrats.
In one of the tweets, she wrote, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj."
Barr was responding to a comment about Valerie Jarrett, a top former aide to President Obama. She replied to CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski and said it was "a joke."
But Barr later deleted the tweet and tweeted an apology to Jarrett and "all Americans."
"I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks," Barr tweeted. "I should have known better. Forgive me -- my joke was in bad taste." Barr then said she's leaving Twitter.
Jarrett declined to comment.
Social media lit up with criticism of both Barr and ABC, with some demanding a response from the broadcast network. ABC has not replied to CNNMoney's request for comment.
I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.

In the past, ABC executives have privately said that they hold their noses when Barr tweets. They know some of her posts have been problematic -- full of pro-Trump conspiracy theories that mislead her fans.
The executives want Barr to focus on her show. But they seem to take the position that there's no controlling Barr, and that's what makes her the successful comic she is.
ABC employees shared these views on condition of anonymity earlier this year, before the current Twitter controversy.
Barr also made comments on Twitter about Chelsea Clinton, tweeting, "Chelsea Soros Clinton." She later replied in the comments that Clinton is "married to Soros nephew." Soros is a billionaire liberal benefactor who has been the subject to many right-wing conspiracy theories over the years.

Clinton responded to Barr shortly after.
"Good morning Roseanne - my given middle name is Victoria. I imagine George Soros's nephews are lovely people. I'm just not married to one," she wrote.
Barr responded back to Clinton saying, "Sorry to have tweeted incorrect info about you! Please forgive me!"

She then continued, "By the way, George Soros is a nazi who turned in his fellow Jews 2 be murdered in German concentration camps & stole their wealth-were you aware of that? But, we all make mistakes, right Chelsea?"
This is a conspiracy theory about Soros that has been debunked many times. The fact-checking site Snopes called it "false" back in 2016.
Barr's followers are accustomed to her conspiratorial tweets, but even by her standards, Tuesday was outrageous.
Some commenters connected her behavior to Trump-era intolerance and said ABC was helping to normalize racism by supporting her show.
MSNBC's "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough was critical of ABC on Twitter.
"Hey @ABC, Roseanne Barr compared Valerie Jarrett to an ape. There is no apology she can make that justifies @ABC turning a blind eye to this bigotry by airing another second of her show," he tweeted. "Even in the Age of Trump, there are red lines that can never be crossed. This is one."
.@ABC, how desperate are you to profit from Roseanne's racism? We know racism sells in this country, it always has. But you don't have to participate in it. This apology is meaningless. Cancel Roseanne. https://t.co/gpbslQZbJX

Others like civil rights activist DeRay Mckesson called on the network to cancel the show.
".@ABC, how desperate are you to profit from Roseanne's racism? We know racism sells in this country, it always has. But you don't have to participate in it," he tweeted. "This apology is meaningless. Cancel Roseanne."
The premiere of Roseanne's reboot was one of the highest-rated new shows of the season, and Barr is one of the network's biggest stars, if not its biggest.
However, after the huge debut, which brought in more than 18 million live viewers, the show saw its audience come back down to earth. Its finale, which aired last week, nabbed roughly 10 million viewers.

I haven’t watched the show, but I heard about the Twitter comments and subsequent cancellation which led me to this thread
I have to say, if the Twitter comments had been about a member of the trump administration I have to wonder if abc’s response would have been the same

It doesn't surprise me with the PC cave.
If something similar was said of the Trump family - they would be applauding.
But NO ... since there is someone black involved the chip is VERY easily knocked off the shoulder.
It is really kind of expected.
This woman was never any form of conservative, all she has done is further the narrative that conservatives are racists. She has long been an advocate for communism going back to Bush senior.
I never liked her, she's a loud mouth ass. Conservative she is not, media/entertainment simply labeled her as such because she didn't go with their points of view. While her contrarian MO was enduring for some and made her money, the reality is she's simply a donkey.
You don't have to wonder, you know.
