These are the Show Notes for this episode of QFADD!
- We discuss Norm Macdonald and Wanda Sykes as having writing credits in the intro, but Morgan Murphy gets the main credit for this script.
- Norm Macdonald's new book.
- WNYC asks: Have You Been Watching Roseanne?
From their site:
"Willa Paskin, TV critic for Slate, and Jared Yates Sexton, professor and author, most recently of The People Are Going to Rise Like the Waters Upon Your Shore: A Story of American Rage, talk about whether "Roseanne" has anything meaningful to say about the working class, Trump voters and politics 20 years after its original run, and take your calls on what you've been thinking as you've been watching."
- "Conner" is of course a variation of "Connor."
- We tweeted this earlier last week, but here's Alicia Goranson talking to Vulture: Roseanne’s Lecy Goranson on How She Feels About Trump and Returning to the Show for the Second Time
- Miss Alicia references this article that she wrote in the Vulture article.
- On on-set pranks (WARNING! SHOWS FUTURE, UNAIRED SCENES):
We thought it would be fun to take a look at the modern entryway of the Conner home vs what we could see in Season 1.
- The lamp is very similar and we assume it's meant to be the same one. Same with the curtains, similar color and style.
- The chair has the same dot pattern, but the old one was a recliner and the new one appears to be a regular wingback(?) and has more wood detailing.
- The beloved dogs playing pool duo by Arthur Sarnoff have been replaced by more tasteful landscapes. Also, what looks like two bronze plates have been added.
- The walls have gone from tan to green.
- Of course we expected the family photos to update over time.
- Roseanne never got the shelf she wanted built next to the front door.
- Queen SJ always assumed that Salisbury steak was named after a place in England, but NOPE, it was a crazy American doctor who started one of the first fad diets.
"Bean food did not digest..." Yes, it's called "fiber," you bonkers maverick.
