Roseanne (Season 8) (1995)

Inconsistent and often difficult to follow, the eight season of “Roseanne” seems like a distant spirit of its original intent. The characters don’t quite seem like themselves, played with disinterest by the show’s recurring cast, but it’s not hard to see why: It’s clear that the aim of the show had fallen prey to Roseanne’s creative capriciousness, as she was clearly more interested in her own celebrity than participating in a quality show. So while this season has its moments here and there, the writing was on the wall: The show was on its way out, so there’s little care or attention paid to consistency or emotional significance. It’s not all bad, but even at its best it’s rather mediocre.
