Critic Reviews for Roseanne Season 6

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (7)

One of the show's last gleefully funny episodes unfolds after Roseanne finds a bag of weed in the basement... For viewers, it's one of the last great Roseanne installments.

You love her or you hate her, but even her most vehement non-fans would have to admit that Roseanne is a great series.

"Lies My Father Told Me" is a dramatic showcase for Goodman, as Dan is forced to re-evaluate his parents' troubled marriage through the lens of his mom's mental illness.

Nov 2, 2017 | Full Review…

The scene feels all the more "slice of life" for these reasons, a commitment to reality that isn't surprising coming from a show that later cast Martin Mull, because its star was a huge fan of the so-real-it's-unreal talk-show parody Fernwood 2 Night.

I didn't need reminding that this was one of the best-cast comedies ever on TV-though I was reminded of that.

Nov 2, 2017 | Full Review…

There's a specificity of both writing craft and acting delivery that represents the show at its most potent, yielding a program so confident in its own strengths that it never has to reach for uproarious laughter.

Even though I couldn't directly relate to the predicament, I saw it reflected in my home life. And, as I get older, I see it in me.

Top Critic

In a sea of witless weed jokes, though, Roseanne did it the best, and it's been over twenty years and that's still the case.
