If you love Roseanne don't watch series 9. RIP,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Roseanne: Season 9 (DVD)
As a collector of all the Roseanne series I recently pruchased season 9 to round things off. I wish I had never known it existed. It took a lot of will power just to sit down to watch it, so over the top, so unreal, not at all the family situations that made us love the Conners. Lost all sense of story, reason, or purpose. It's not just indulgent on the casts part, but it doesn't care if it entertains the audience at all. The writers must have all quit at the end of season 8. This is not the Roseanne that should have been. The ending, explained away that it was just a book Roseanne was writing and that Dan had really died the year before and that all this fantasy was just that wasn't good enough to bring back the hours of wasted shows that came before. If you want to remember this show as great, avoid the ending series and stop at 8.
