I was eight when Roseanne premiered, I was seventeen when it ended. I watched it all throughout those years. I am not an alcoholic or drug addict. Plenty of people my age group grew up with Roseanne and it didn't do anything to us.

Your post shows your ignorance to SP by the way. On the outskirt, it is a vile shockfest, but to people who actually watch the show, you'd realize it is actually a biting social commentary that takes no prisoners. Okay, it's not kid-friendly, but neither SP or Roseanne is exactly the disposable trash you're making them out to be.

Oh No

This question depends on the age of my children. If they were, say, under 13, I would let them watch only certain episodes. Once they reach 13, and I feel they are mature enough to handle concepts such as the homosexual lifestyle, drug use and sexual innuendos [OK, Roseanne was pretty frank when it came to sex], then I would let them watch those episodes with me. Homosexuality, drug use and sexual references are not a big thing here, so I would be there to answer questions for them. Once I see that they are clear headed and understand the concepts, then I would allow them to watch it on their own.

I was 13 when I was allowed to watch rated R movies, so I think it's fair to hold certain Roseanne episodes to the same standard. I'm sure my children, under 13, will not be missing anything when they are not seeing Roseanne kiss another woman, Darlene and Roseanne discussing their virginity and the drug use and after affect.

I don't want my kids subjected to these topics until I feel that they and I are ready to discuss them. I want my kids to remain kids as long as possible -- and that's a very hard task nowa'days.

My son never cared about watching the show in the first place. (lol!) But if he "had wanted to watch it", I'd probably have let him.

I agree with you 100%! My son, who is now 19, watched Roseanne (mostly when they were in re-runs), but he didn't turn out to be morally deficient. I personally would not watch anything that I'd feel I'd have to censor from him, because I feel that would make me a hypocrite, plus anything that wouldn't be suitable for him wouldn't be suitable for ME, either! If there was ever any topic that I felt needed addressing, I'd simply talk to my son about it. Fortunately my son never copied anything he saw on t.v. or movies, and his friends always shared his viewpoints on things like drugs. My son could laugh about that episode, but it never made him want to try it for himself. He always maintained that drugs were stupid, and when he was 12 he did a report in school about how he felt that alcohol and cigarettes should be as illegal as any other drug. I know that some kids copy what they see, but most of them don't have very open relationships with their parents, or else their parents are working too much to know what their kids are getting into. Look at the kids from Columbine who were making homemade bombs in their parents own garage! They found the recipe for making one on the internet, but the kids' parents had no idea what they were doing. They didn't even know their kids were going through anything at the time. It's not all t.v. and the movies that's to blame for what kids are doing....it's a part of it, but it's also the parents.

Hmm.. depends on the age if they were 10, 11,12, 13 I would just let them watch seasons 1 & 2 not the later seasons because of the gay & sex talk!! & some of the bad words they say!!

Along with Married...With Children and Three's Company, it was one of the three banned TV shows in our house growing up. As I got old enough that mom didn't care anymore, I watched for a while, but it didn't seem all that interested in it. Now, if I catch it on TV I'll sit through an episode or two, but it's nothing special. I guess that was the parental power at work...lol

I never had a problem watching those episodes, and my mom never had a prob me watching them....Darlene started to go out with David when I was 11...so sex became a bigger part of the show than it was before even...but since it´s a part of life....as is homosexuality....we never really had a problem with it...with most kids I knew it was the same...we were just having a ball watching to great dialogues, the funny scenes and the great acting....I always liked it much more than Full House (i liked it too)...because it was kinda more realistic....

I don't have kids, but I never really liked this show. I hardly watch it at all and I wasn't sad when it was canceled (or ended).

I would let my kids watch it. I grew up watching the show and it has always been one of my favorites and my mom's favorite.
I appreciate the show because the Conner's struggled with money, jobs, their kid's making bad choices, etc. It wasn't all sunshine where everything was back to normal at the end of the episode. It was very realistic.

My parents and older siblings were big fans of the show so I grew up watching the show there some episodes I didn't completely understand. I was 12 when the show ended I remember I watched reruns for a couple of years afterwards on TBS. I got back into the show when it was on Nick at Nite and other cable channels. I don't have kids but I think let them watch.
