It’s not the same Roseanne of yesteryear – the matriarch’s ( Roseanne Barr) support of the Trump administration makes that obvious, along with the series’ new political undertones – but tonight’s episode embodies the series’ original spirit. The Conner family’s hard- knock story is skilfully awash with dry, punchy oneliners in this instalment. When Becky’s ( Lecy Goranson) plan to be a surrogate encounters a road block, she and Darlene ( Sara Gilbert) take stock of their lives. Meanwhile, lonely Jackie ( Laurie Metcalf) wants to adopt a puppy. Better Call Saul’s Rhea Seehorn, makes a cameo.
