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.
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.
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.
