SummaryAdd a Summary
Roseanne and Dan Conner (a factory worker [for this first season] and a contractor respectively) are parents first and foremost as they raise their family on the little money they have in the realistically suburban landscape of Lanford, Illinois. They have three children: the smart and girly eldest daughter, Becky, who focuses on boys and popularity; Darlene, the sarcastic tomboy who shows fierce personality, much to her family's chagrin; and the youngest, a hygiene-challenged son named DJ (David Jr.), who just tries to be heard as the little male minority amongst his outspoken sisters and mother. Last but not least, Roseanne's single-and-ready-to-mingle sister Jackie intrudes on the family, but always with the best intentions. As former children of the sixties, Roseanne and Dan just try to keep their sanity and raise their children with love and compassion in a way that fits with their values, without becoming preachy duplicates of their own parents. Supporting cast and guest stars include many fantastic comedic talents, including a twenty-something George Clooney. The show grows and matures as the family does, dealing with "life and stuff", as the sitcom's original title suggests.
