For my money, this was the strongest episode thus far, ringing very much of the show’s splendid Season 6. Parsons was fabulous and indeed, it could surely serve as a submission for Metcalf. Only the Goodman subplot didn’t really click…I presume his big showcase is still to come?

It was the best episode so far but I guess it’s because it was the last episode produced this season. Damn ABC and their pattern of airing episodes out of order.May 2, 2018 at 8:27 am #1202539231
Best episode all season. A+May 2, 2018 at 4:36 pm #1202539466

Craig Bartlett (who’s the creator of Hey Arnold!, Dinosaur Train, and Ready Jet Go!) did a Reddit IAmA last month, and someone asked him:
“Why did PBS and Nickelodeon premiere episodes of your shows out of order? I know all your shows have continuity.”
His response was:
“Once we deliver the episodes, sometimes the networks decide to come out with one before another, but they usually stick to our deliveries. Nick held on to ‘Parents Day’ for a long time, waiting to decide how they wanted to promote it. Also ‘The Journal’, for the same reason.”May 2, 2018 at 5:28 pm #1202539489
The ratings dropped 25% and lost to NCISMay 2, 2018 at 5:40 pm #1202539495
The ratings is what matters and it’s still a big win.May 11, 2018 at 1:28 pm #1202545379
The scenes with the Muslim neighbors were great. Both of those actors are vivid with nice comic timing. D.J.’s veteran storyline scenes didn’t have much to them. Michael Fishman is just not a skilled or dynamic performer as an adult. Sad. I can see why so few scenes have featured him in this reboot. Nice to see Chuck and Anne-Marie back, but it didn’t amount to much. Very excited that Xosha Roquemore is playing Gina! How did that happen? Please feature her more in season 2! Wayyyy too good for D.J. as well lol.May 14, 2018 at 10:41 pm #1202547254

I hated most of this episode . My grade: C. The Darlene/Becky stuff was great thoughMay 16, 2018 at 10:13 am #1202548185
I find that this show really isn’t good or bad. It’s just there.May 17, 2018 at 9:02 am #1202548998
This was OK. Oddly enough, I think the cast and writers seem more at-ease with the dramatic material, with the comedy playing far too broad.

I liked the storylines in this episode, and I’m very interested to see where they take this with Roseanne, but it just wasn’t that funnyMay 18, 2018 at 4:59 am #1202549479
Kinda dark turn at the end, but I dug it. Historically, “Roseanne” has always tackled dramatic material deftly, like with “Wait ’til Your Father Gets Home” (Roseanne’s Emmy-winning tape) and Jackie’s domestic abuse storyline with Fisher. I think there’s much material to mine from an opioid addiction arc, so I’m all here for that. The rest of the episode had nice levity with Darlene and Becky angling for Crystal’s casino waitress job and the scene at the hotel. I’m looking forward to the season finale far more now and what sounds like a very promising season 2.
