Critic Reviews for The Conners Season 2

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

It seems the show has returned to its roots as an exploration of the challenges facing a working-class family that mostly avoids partisanship and values diversity. The humor is stilted and awkward at times, but its emotional core remains.

Altogether, these staples produce little flavor; maybe it's the lack of a shadow to emerge from, but "Preemies, Weed And Infidelity" is rarely ever more than just fine.

It's a stellar move that really allows these characters to expand their emotional depths a little bit further.

"The Conners" returns to remind us what primetime used to be. Producers Bruce Helford, Bruce Rasmussen, and Dave Caplan keep the "Roseanne" 90's format intact while still updating it for new viewers.

This season premiere was far from perfect, but it did what I expect of the show, it made me laugh out loud, shake my head, and sometimes yell at the screen.

Sep 25, 2019 | Rating: 4.0/5.0 | Full Review…

It's got a strong cast... with Laurie Metcalf and John Goodman leading the way.

The Conners finally feels like the modern day Roseanne we've been waiting for.

Audience Reviews for The Conners: Season 2

  • Feb 12, 2020
    One of my favorite shows. I never watched the original, so I can't compare, but I think The Connors is great fun! I don't know why some are so negative about it.
  • Jan 28, 2020
    I hate to state the obvious but this show isn't the same since they canned roseanne. The writing is bad, it's not funny, and everything seems out of sync.
  • Jan 22, 2020
    Stinks without Rosanne!
  • Jan 22, 2020
    Ready for it to go away, again.

    Not the same dynamic after killing off Roseanne Barr.
  • Jan 05, 2020
    Season 2 puts us right back into that dynamic that made us all love Roseanne. Darlene's daughter is rebelling and trying to leave the trappings of the family and town, but everyone else is being sucked in further into the family and town- looking to the future and outside failed everyone and they start to cling to their roots and they find new, outside aspects/people to be untrustworthy because they aren't the thing they have always counted on- family. As the family continues to grow their minds, the rest of the world becomes more imposing. This is a beautiful progression from the heart of the original show that keeps it relevant and still true to the origins. We saw the protest at the plastics plant when Rosie quits, the crappy circumstances around the Lunchbox and bike shop where they are barely making it and end up losing it all anyway. We now see an internal protest between most trusted family to bring the 'Lunchbox' back and bring new aspects into the family, and they are toppling before they are starting- but there's hope and determination. The outside and inside seem fragile now, and that's what the original show felt like. A real family living life and a whole lot of dark humor and love to get through it, because karma is about to pull the rug out from everything good that happens, so you gotta laugh at something.

    So boring to watch now.

    This is what Roseanne should have been, without Roseanne. I dont know why it has such a low audience score. It's a shame because this is way better than the original show.
  • Dec 08, 2019
    Tried to watch during the first and current season, just awful. I was a fan of the show as a kid, it tackled serious issues in a clever and funny way, this is NOT that. This show was written by people who either have no concept of subtlety or have no sense of humour at all... It is all very sad because a couple of the actors involved are actually very good, the writing is the worst. Preachy and unfunny. This show is not even remotely clever... I doubt even bringing back Rosanne would fix it anymore. Shameful how the network treated her, yet I gave the show many chances, what a waste of my time.

    I'm so sick of ppl making this into a Roseanne vs The Conners as some political rivalry. I didn't just grow up watching Roseanne as a kid, I grew up watching the family as a whole. It sucks that she's gone, But the show is still just as good. I love it!
