Default Dan in the later epiodes

I didn't like how they wrote Dan character in the last 2 o 3 Seasons, Dan would never ever dared called Roseanne a Controlling Bitch, Fat or a Bad mother and he would have never said his kids were failures in the early season's! Dan of the early season would have never cheated on her either(I know he didn't really cheat on her and at this point it was a dream but but Technically speaking)When Tom Arnold(I never like his character but a least when he was on the show behind the scenes it was better) was working on the show (First 5 Years)they had a loving marriage.

And none of the kids I thought were Failures at all, I mean Darlene may have been married and pregnant but she was still going to school and was pretty much done almost and had Job's offers! DJ was not even n High School yet! And Becky for the most part I think was okay and doing just fine. Kids are not perfect and are not going to turn out the way your want them too! I heard something the other day, Stop forcing your kids or holding them at high expectations to be someone that they are not or may no be and thinking that they will do everything that you want them to do(I hope someone understand What I am trying to say as I don't have Kids), and just let them be their own peoples and they will find their way or where they belong in this world. College is not for everybody.

Could have imagine if Jackie, Becky, Mark or Darlene were in the house = during that fight?

In the final season I thought that Dan was really out of line with Roseanne with how he treated her. She was just trying to be like any good wife and help get him on the right track to improving his health and instead threw it back at her at her by cheating on his diet and like you said, calling her a controlling b***h and their kids failures. I am sure that would have hurt Darlene, Becky and D.J. quite badly hearing this from him.

If Jackie has heard Dan say that stuff to Roseanne could you have imagine what would have happened?

She would have gave him hell for sure and got in his face for being so disrespectful to her sister. I am sure if even the kids or Bev had been there they would have had a thing or two to say to him as well.

I feel where you guys are coming from but Roseanne was written (especially in later years) as a controling b****. There is no way around it. Dan was putting up with a lot of that mess from her. Those kids were failures. They were still in the progress of change. Becky was working her way back to college. Darlene was still in school and DJ was beginning to find his nitch with what he wanted to do film industry wise.

Roseanne was difficult to deal with in later years (sorry but she was). However, she loved her some Dan and he loved her. The scene that got to me was when she was at his bedside after the heart attack when the closing credits were rolling that the end of the show. It was so natural. She looked upset but was trying to remain calm as she was skimming throught the magazine. I loved that. I also loved how in the Jerry Springer episode someone tried so sass Roseanne and Dan came to her defense. I thought that was so cool. So, there are some pluses and negatives.

I think Jackie was too busy being a Nutcase in the later Episodes to even notice! I loved her character in the early Seasons but hated what the writers turned her into later on.

The Jerry Springer fantasy was hiliarous, I loved it. Though my favorite was the scene with Roseanne watching Dan while anxiously flipping through the magazine trying to remain calm like you said and not show her concern and worry.

Another moment I really though was really emotional was when Roseanne is standing in the hallway of the hospital talking to God and blamming him for Dan's heartattack at Darlene/David's wedding. Though she soon realizes that t she was actually the one who was actually at fault that she was the one who fed him all the greasy foods, eating all the same foods right along side of him and enabling him to be unheathly. At the end of it all she says, "So I guess you weren't the one who screwed up."

The scene when Darlene had gone into early labor and at the end of the episode you saw Roseanne sitting there watching Darlene and Dan sleep was also emotional as well. Though she keeps her eyes mainly glued on to Darlene, it's like she silently praying to God for the treatment to work for not her sake, but Darlene's sake as well. Very moving scene. One of a personal favorite of mine.

Agreed. Also Mark, I know he was never smart, but in the last season I would not want him to work on my toy motorcycle. He became a complete moron

I thought Roseanne was somewhat controlling throughout the whole series. I'd have to see where Dan insulted her. Thats because I rarely watched the last season of Roseanne. I thought it was bad. I thought Dan leaving for a while was bad, I thought him cheating on Roseanne was way worse then when he insulted her. The whole lottery thing just didnt make sense. It was bad all around.

Dan cheating on Roseanne bothered me more than Dan calling Roseanne names because you know married couples fight and they say things they would want to take back. To have Dan, who was upstanding, a nice guy all around cheat on Roseanne made the Dan character tough to root for. I mean there isnt a chance in the world that Dan would cheat on Roseanne. Its almost like you had to turn your brain off when that happened.

I guess this is something I have to look forward to but i did find out that John Goodman were not in that many episodes in the last season which is a disappointing. I guess if a show is going to jump the shark I guess it's not a bad thing if it's in the last season

Bad writing. It wasn't just Dan. Pretty much all the characters were lame in the last two seasons. A sure sign that the writers had lost track of the characters. Same thing happened on the last few seasons of M*A*S*H.
