Roseanne is that rare sitcom that not only maintains its quality over multiple seasons, but actually gets emotionally richer as it does so. Despite all the offscreen chaos--the divorces, the much-publicized fights among the writing staff, the plastic surgery--Roseanne (the actress) drove her show forward with a clear vision and commitment to the show's characters, with excellent results. The big arc for the season is Roseanne Connor's pregnancy (which coincided with Roseanne's own), but two other subplots provide memorable episodes: The troubled marriage of Roseanne's sister Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) and Fred (Michael O'Keefe) and the equally troubled relationship between Roseanne's daughter Darlene (Sara Gilbert) and her boyfriend David (Johnny Galecki), who's moved into the Connor house and becomes a sort of adopted son.

As ever, the show superbly balances serious issues (drug use, infidelity, abortion, racism) and more obviously comic material (nudist neighbors, inappropriate erotic dreams, and absurd turns with classic sitcom moms and a daffy homage to Gilligan's Island). The key is that Roseanne never offers an easy solution. Roseanne is adamant about a woman's right to choose, but has a meltdown at the possibility that she might have to make such a choice herself; Roseanne tries to keep Darlene and David together, but that may not be the best option for either of them. This moral and emotional complexity--combined with smart writing and top-notch performances--made Roseanne one of the all-time top sitcoms. Featuring guest appearances by Sharon Stone, Ellen DeGeneres, Traci Lords, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Danny Masterson, as well as recurring appearances by Martin Mull, Sandra Bernhard, Estelle Parsons, and Shelley Winters. And of course, John Goodman, as Roseanne's husband Dan, continues to be as essential to the show's success as Roseanne herself. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Perhaps more than any other time in its remarkable history, this is the season in which ROSEANNE pushed the sitcom envelope like never before. It was the unforgettable year that began with Roseanne’s unexpected pregnancy and went on to tackle such issues as abortion, alcoholism, drug abuse, sexual dysfunction and racial prejudice. There’s also erotic dreams, nude neighbors, scandalous secrets, both Beckys, a gay Halloween, a turkey of a Thanksgiving, the Sitcom Moms’ Welcome Wagon, and the Conner’s all-time classic visit to Gilligan’s Island. Relive all 25 uncut episodes from this landmark season that was nominated for four Emmy Awards® and featured such guest stars as Sharon Stone, Ellen DeGeneres, Shelley Winters, Estelle Parsons, Danny Masterson, Traci Lords, Joseph Gordon- Levitt, Martin Mull, Sandra Bernhard, Michael O’Keefe and many more.

Format:DVD
Season 7 still has enough good episodes and even some great ones for it to be worthwhile viewing, but it is definitely the beginning of the end. The season opener isn't a standout as is normally the case, but it is good enough. Dan is tired of not having any privacy, and tells Roseanne that Mark and Becky have to go, having been in the house since the previous Thanksgiving. At the end of the episode she tells Dan that she has told Mark and Becky that they have until May to find new living quarters, and by the way, she's pregnant. Thus begins one of the longest pregnancies in the history of television - thirteen months plus the time Roseanne has been pregnant before she announces the news. The next bit of life changing information comes when Jackie discovers Darlene at a motel in the middle of the day. It seemed a bit strange that Jackie was "telling on" a girl that the Conners had basically emancipated the year before when the whole incident of Darlene and David actually living together came to light. However, it turns out that the boy with Darlene is not David, it's a new boyfriend - Jimmy. David says he is OK with it, but Roseanne is not and tells Darlene to make a choice. She does - and dumps a heartbroken David. David employs first one strategy and then another to win Darlene back, but they just backfire and further alienate her from him. Towards the end of the season, David does move on with his life and starts dating a girl that is not Darlene. This rouses some unexpected feelings on the part of Darlene, and she reconsiders her earlier decision on their romance. The whole issue of the broken romance between David and Darlene is one of the best parts of the season.

The Halloween episode this year turns out to be excellent.

2.0 out of 5 stars The "middle" of the end April 18, 2007
Format:DVD
A couple reviews have called this season the beginning of the end. As I see it, however, it's more like the middle. The "beginning" of the end came about halfway through season five when Lecy Goranson hit the road, Roseanne's ego started to surface more persistently, and the Conner family dynamic began changing. The show started its decline back then, and with season seven there was unfortunately no turning back to the glory days of the show's first four years.

Season seven had its share of problems, but the biggest of them may have been the star herself. The lines between Roseanne Barr and Roseanne Conner were terribly blurred by this point. The working class heroine from the show's early years had vanished. Barr was harsh, abrasive, and always screaming this season. That stuff worked fine early on because it wasn't constant, and she managed to play Roseanne Conner with heart and a bit of humility (qualities that weren't so apparent later on).

Meanwhile, sitcoms that center on families always suffer as the kid's age, so I don't mind the fact that the family dynamic changed w/ Darlene and Becky both leaving the house (temporarily), but having David in the house full-time was a bit of a stretch. And having Mark and Becky move in just to fill a void wasn't necessary either. Of course, had Goranson been playing Becky at the time, I may not have minded so much. The horribly miscast Sarah Chalke was terrible as Becky, merely saying her lines with no emotion or impact at all.

The heart of the show was just gone by this point, but I'll keep buying the DVDs to complete the collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still strong, not the best June 18, 2007
Format:DVD
Roseanne is my all-time favorite television show. Season 7 isn't as good as seasons 2-6 (season 1 is OK), however, season 7 still brings up many realistc issues and brought out tons of laughs.

The highlights that make this season great include: Darlene's drug use. The episode that dealt with Darlene's drug use is one of the best episodes in Roseanne's run. Others include Roseanne getting totally tricked on Halloween; DJ, Dan and Roseanne facing their slight racist attitudes, Roseanne thinking about getting an abortion and Bev drinking and driving (haha at the scene where Jackie, Dan and Fred get drunk in the garage!).

Honestly, there are still plenty of great lines that bring out tons of laughter and although there were some mediocre episodes, overall the storylines this season are strong and thought provoking.

Some claim that Roseanne just got mean in this season, but there were many instances where Roseanne showed her sensitive and understanding/rational side. One being when Roseanne let Darlene go back to college, trying to get Darlene and David back together, and when Becky moves into a trailer and thus Roseanne starts to feel guilty about not giving her kids enough of a head start.

Season 7 is still strong, although not the best. Seasons 2-6 are the greatest episodes TV has ever seen...so if you don't want to get Season 7, go for Seasons 2-6.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE SEASON 7 September 9, 2007
Format:DVD
Ive said it before and I'd say it 100 times, ROSEANNE ROCKS!!!
I LOVED LOVED LOVED season 7. Its one of my favorites. I know alot of people say its the end and what not, but if you look at where the characters were at this point in the 9 year story, you can see that the characters are growing. Darlene wants to explore other relationships. DJ learns the value of standing up for yourself, Dan learns how to handle things when Roseanne is away, Jackie realizes she really does have it in her to be a mom, and also that she rushed into marrying Fred. Fred, for all his efforts finally comes to terms with Jackies feelings of not loving him the way he wanted her to. David learns how to stand up and be himself after the pain of losing Darlene subsides, and realizes hes still standing!! And Becky FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY does something WITHOUT Mark, and goes back to school, and continues her education. And I loved Sarah Chalke as Becky too,, she acted just like Becky always did, an emotional hothead, and seemingly spoiled! And Rosey, learns that even she too has doubts and fears like all of us do. And Mark learns,,,, uhhhh, um,, well anyways. The only episode I really dont like here in season 7 are Thanksgiving 1994 it actually made me feel very sad and depressed.

ANyhow I loved this season. My favorite episodes were "Girl Talk" OMG The tag at the end was true comedy!!! I LOVED this episode. The Halloween episode is also one of my all time favorites!! I also loved Happy Trailors, altho I was always so sad to see Becky give up her independence and obsess over Mark all the time. ANd The Bird and the Frozen Bees, OMG the beggining tag where Darlene swats the thawed out bee,, I remember wetting my pants I laughed so hard!!
All in all,, a very funny season.

Roseanne Calls David "Kevin" The First Time He Appears (??)
yes; and when David and Darlene get married they call him "Kevin David Healy" but when Darlene and David are in their car filling out their college applications, David says his middle name is "Maurice".
