Roseanne was an American sitcom about...Americans! Instead of the plastic Hollywood stories you're used to in the sitcoms and cinema with hot blondes and big muscly models, Roseanne brought you the reality. Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) is a funny, sometimes obnoxious mother of three, happily married to her husband, Dan (John Goodman), a struggling working man. Becky (Alicia Goranson) is their bratty, attractive, miss popular high school student, who can be described as selfish, and sometimes difficult, but in general intelligent. Darlene (Sara Gilbert) is the second oldest, known for her rebellious attitude and wise-cracking quirps around the house. D.J. (Michael Fishman) is the baby, known for his nerdy antics and his common spats with Darlene and Becky. Both Roseanne and Dan work hard, but can never seem to get out of their indebtness. A typical blue-collar American family. Joining them in their daily life is Roseanne's younger sister, the nosy Jackie (Laurie Metcalf), who is often low on her luck, especially when it comes to men. Roseanne and Jackie's crazy mother, Bev, is known for stopping by uninvited to criticize the everyday lives of Roseanne and Jackie.
