Actress Debbie Reynolds Rushed To Hosp. After Stroke

62 posts in this topic

I think the show was on the wane, but the lottery crap - which was all Roseanne's idea, which she did because ABC did not buy her planned remake of Absolutely Fabulous and she decided to refit her show into a version of it instead - destroyed it completely. It could've gone out with dignity in Season 8, which IIRC is what John Goodman and Lecy Goranson and most of the cast had expected when they signed for that year.

The 8th season was 100% supposed to be it's last. At least the finale made up for the trash of Season 9. And look what she did to the Dan character. That really pissed me off at the time. Clearly being punished for running for the hills.

 

Anyway, back to Debbie Reynolds....

I thought the finale was awful. People confuse it being memorable with it being good. The ending was (IMO) a ludicrous betrayal of the entire show and all of its characters just so Roseanne could be punitive about a handful of castmembers and creative battles she lost both recently and years prior, like her onscreen sister being gay like her RL one. She undid the hated lottery season that only she liked, but did so by ripping the entire show's guts out to prove a point to the audience. I also thought her entire monologue and the terrible final Phoebe Snow song was dreadful and so not the show. I mean, ending it on a D.H. Lawrence quote? Really?

Killing off Dan was shocking and awful to do.

Yes back to Debbie. She was pretty much the last cast member of Singing in the Rain still alive, right? I think the only (credited) one left is Rita Moreno. *crosses self*

Just to add this one thing.....I actually read, truthfully, that Roseanne wanted to reboot the series, and one of her ideas...was to say that DAN DIDN'T DIE...HE FAKED HIS DEATH SO HE ENDED UP IN THE WP PROGRAM.
