These are the show notes for this episode! Airdate November 22, 1988.
- We don't want to put Jackie in front of a firing squad, but maybe we do want to put the leaping fish earrings there.
We need a nap after that!
We were interested to see that Gelman accuses Roseanne of "class bigotry" and pondered what she meant. Queen SJ wondered if it was because of the sometimes unflattering representations of the characters as unsophisticated ("hillbillies"). Queen Debbie wondered if it was because Roseanne was living a different life than the one portrayed on her show.
Also of note from the above article, Roseanne pushed to have more people of color appear on the show:
- CORNSPOTTING! Roseanne declares the exercise from the teen mag "corny" in this scene.
- We couldn't help but notice Roseanne's denim-on-denim (dark and acid wash!) and were reminded of the Canadian tuxedo.
Queen SJ nibbles Tom and Lorenzo's steez vis-à-vis their amazing costuming deep dives.
