    The episode where Dan and Chuck go into business and then get into a fight is a good one. "I wish I had a wife that would carry me..."

    I watched it tonight (normally I just have it on in the background and don't pay much attention). It is actually a good show. People see politics into things too much instead of just trying to enjoy something.

    I am absolutely loving this reboot. Forgot how much I dug the original. Great job being done here.

    I'm enjoying the show a great deal also. Wish people would stop calling it a "reboot" though (and I don't mean just here, but everywhere in the media). At best it could be described as a partial reboot, since they've only discarded some of the old continuity. It's more accurately a revival.

    The Conners are still the TV family I'd want to hang out with the most.

    Roseanne said before the series started that she thought of this as the 10th season of the show. I’m pretty certain it’s named that way, i.e. S10 E4, etc. It seems like a small detail, but that’s supposed to be the continuity of the show.

    It’s definitely season 10, as they got renewed and that’s season 11

    I feel like John Goodman is being underutilized in the episodes so far. No, not as much as Fishman, but in general, the more John there is the better the show is.

    Yeah, I think that's true. He seems to be given a lot less lines and less to do than in the earlier run of the show. I hope that changes next season.

    I agree. We need an episode that focuses on Dan pronto.

    I wonder what he's "doing", exactly? Is he retired? In business for himself doing drywalling? Woodworking? He doesn't seem to be doing much.

    Both Roseanne and Dan are in their late 60s, so they are past retirement age at least in theory. But there was an episode this season where Dan had drywall on his hands. The implication seems to be that he is "retired" from working a regular 40-hour-a-week job, but does independent contracting on the side because they need extra money.

    Spoiler episode title and summery for the May 8th episode:

    Since the Conner's are unable to pay their Wi-Fi bill, they become friends with their new neighbors so they can use the Internet for Mary to connect with her mother Geena, who is stationed in Afghanistan; Dan loses a significant job.

    My comment...
    Finally, a plot about D.J's wife and daughter.

    Estelle was the highlight of tonight's episode. The Mark/Dan sub-plot was throwaway fluff but the prop department did a nice job on Mark's first birdhouse.

    How did she move Jackie's furniture around, anyway? They never did answer that.

    I missed a little of the show because my digital antenna was acting up, but glad that it had plenty of Bev.

    Maybe she and her "friend" did it.

    I know they're good friends, but it's funny how people can't separate the artist from their personal beliefs, no matter how ridiculous they might seem to some.

    I enjoyed the Bev dynamic again last night. She hasn't missed a beat (no idea if Estelle Parsons has been actively acting in recent years). As for Dan's storyline being fluff in this episode, I think it's usually that way in sitcoms. You have the main storyline and then usually a goofy side-plot with some of the other characters. With that said, John Goodman has been great as "Grandpa" Dan so I would enjoy more of his character.
