Post Who is the better Becky?

If you nocticed there were 2 girls on the show that potrayed Becky. I like the first one. She was able to take on Darlene. The second one was real pretty but presented more of the airhead type of image which made it easier for Darlene to take cheap shots at her. Darlene really couldn't do that with first one. What do you think?

I agree the 2nd Becky would be the one I would want to date, but the 1st Becky is the one you would want to take home to your parents..

What are some qualities in the first Becky that would help you decide that you want to take her home? (To mom and dad)

I like the first Becky best. I loved the way she always yelled "MOTHER!" at Roseanne. Besides that, the new Becky came after she was married and as responsible as she could be with Mark, and Becky never shanged much in that time.

orginal Becky was the best. Faux Becky was pretty but couldnt act. Think thats why ABC brought back Lecy in what was suppose to be Roseanne's last season.

I agree about the Second Becky having a sweet nature and boy was she pretty. However the character was more defined in Lecy Goranson(Becky #1). She and Sara were better at potraying squabbling siblings. Becky #2 and Darlene were more distant.

Oh, I would definetely say the first Becky, simply because she was the better actress. The quality of the episodes were'nt affected by the second Becky, but something just was'nt right...

Becky #1 was my favorite. I liked the way she would argue with Roseanne, she would roll her eyes up and even when she cried it was believable, She was so emotional.

Two problems with Sarah Chalke (Becky #2): she couldn't act, and they changed the Becky character into a ditzy-blond-type. Lecy Goranson is highly underrated -- Sara Gilbert got all the good press, but Lecy was terrific in the scenes where she argued with her parents or Darlene. Very believable.

I would even argue that Lecy can be as attractive as Sarah Chalke. That short pageboy hairdo was a problem, but when she came back at the beginning of season 8, her hair was longer and she looked really good. Unfortunately, a few episodes later, it was back to the pageboy.

I'd be curious to find out why Lecy didn't stick around for the last season. Obviously, she had scheduling problems in season 8, when Sarah Chalke occasionally filled in for her. I loved the episode where they were talking about going to Disney World. Sarah was filling in for Lecy, and Roseanne said to Becky, "Aren't you glad you're here this week?" Very funny.

I agree she was cute and a good actress, but I prefer the other version of Becky.

Lecy Goranson was the better Becky because she was the original Becky, and defined the character.
