S01.E13: Bridge Over Troubled Sonny

Crystal finally gets mourning her husband Sonny out of her system, and Darlene gets nicotine into hers. SJ reminiscences about how D.A.R.E. made her say “yes” to drugs, and Debbie bazooka-barfs the last thing you’d want to. SJ and Debbie agree that everyone is suckily insensitive to sweet Crystal.

Our Show Notes will try not to drive you over the Monument Street Bridge.

S01.E11: Canoga Time

A rummage sale gets everyone horny/shove-y/throwing shit in an episode that feels like a pack of skits. Debbie and SJ don’t love the caveman attitudes on display from our leading men. Debbie cracks the case of “what is this plot ripped off from?” (see show notes for answer) and SJ talks about partying with the cocaine lesbian mafia as a teen.

You'll wish you threw our Show Notes onto the lawn!

S01.E09: Dan's Birthday Bash

Dan has a birthday and a reckoning with a Bobo who lets him know he’s not a youngster anymore. Our Queens discuss street fisticuffs, the 1950s sitcom influences on the show, and how 14-year-olds don’t dress like Becky anymore.

Our Show Notes are a steroid case that thinks you should KEEP IT DOWN and listen to your little woman.

S01.E08: Here's to Good Friends

Roseanne channels her inner drag king for Crystal the Doormat, and Jackie catches Booker being a total fuckboi. Queen Debbie and Queen SJ occupy themselves with overthinking the logistics of bringing elaborate gelatin desserts to work, real snow days and fake TV snow, and SJ reveals her stunning ignorance about WHAT EVEN IS FOOTBALL?

Have a skosh of a gander at our SHOW NOTES! SJ was a LEETLE overcaffeinated for this ep. Poor Debbie!

S01.E06: Lovers' Lane

Roseanne orchestrates a bowling night which gets Jackie closer to Booker, Becky closer to Chip, and Crystal closer to being Queen SJ's spirit animal. Queen Debbie and Queen SJ talk about American idioms, how graceful Dan is, and the politics of Booker's weird sex-bet.

Please note that SJ's levels were just TOO DARN HIGH so is clipped a little at points. Sorry for the sketchy sound quality!

Also, please partake of our show notes, which are not riddled with fungus (unlike Dan's bowling shoes).

S01.E05: Radio Days

Dan and Roseanne enter a songwriting contest to win a prize, and Roseanne ponders her past as an aspiring writer and revolutionary. Jackie tries to decide if she wants to hit it and quit it with the old Bookerino.

Please note that we try to get the new episode out midweek, but we've been hit by a bad case of school (SJ) and travel (Debbie) this week. We are releasing this one early.

Check out our show notes for this ep!

S01.E03: D-I-V-O-R-C-E

Dan and Roseanne keep romance alive with a date night where they come face-to-face with a divorcee. Meanwhile, the kids are home alone until Aunt Jackie shows up. Queen Debbie and Queen SJ were excited that there was a moment on TV where a hard-working mom was allowed to talk about her hopes and dreams that extended beyond her daily drudgery. 

You can see scenes from this episodes and most of the things we talked about in the Show Notes, like wild 80s patterns, Alicia Goranson's blog, vintage Avon, and more!

S01E01: Life and Stuff

We discuss our early impressions of Roseanne Barr pre-sitcom, the actors, and the pilot, and some background about the contentious creation process of the show.

Don't forget to check out our Show Notes for this episode of links and screenshots from the show!

Please note: we had a little technology hiccup for our first recording, so around the hour mark we stopped, there's a music interlude, then we return and wrap it up.
