  • SJ enjoyed the "We Watch Whiteness" episode of Still Processing (4/26/18). If you want the Roseanne part, skip to minute 12:00, but it's a good ep overall!
There’s a lot of that early part of [Roseanne] that’s about their familial bond and their commitment to each other and their commitment to their relationships despite all the hardships that’s going to propel them into the future. Versus this current iteration we’re seeing which is deeply defensive, deeply protective. It’s not a self-conscious awareness; it’s an extremely aggressive self-awareness that’s daring you to have a problem with it. Whereas I think in the earlier part of the show, they’re asking you to be a part of it.

  • SJ mentioned GLOW and Claws, which are outstanding, and we talked about The Comeback with Lisa Kudrow as well. Very, very good shows! Imagine if Jenji Kohan got her mitts on Roseanne....

SJ figured out what bell Drue Delio (casino weirdo #1) was ringing for her.

Doing a live sitcom like that, it’s gut-wrenchingly fake. You’re doing a scene six to eight times in different angles and then you have a studio audience that’s coached to laugh even though they’ve just heard the fucking joke that’s not even a laugh out loud joke anyway. You’re like, “This is so phony”. That’s the medium. I was happy to do it cause I love Roseanne, but I don’t think I could ever do that for a living.

 We hate to be all POVERTY PORN, but enjoy details like the threadbareness of the family sofa.

 As the season goes on, Becky reminds us of Instagram fashion "influencers." Love the one-eyed teddy shirt, though.
