No "Rage Against the Machine"
27 January 2019 | by MarcusCyronSee all my reviews

What made up the old, original series "Roseanne" was, alongside the humor, the fighting spirit of this family. The fate of life, the obstacles that opened, were addressed. Where is this all? What's left is a broken family, a family at the bottom. And that's not just the omission of the mother figure. It seems to be the general attitude of the series. But who wants to continue to watch the demise of a working-class family in a sitcom and even laugh about it?

Episode 1.09 was now the low point of this development. No rearing up. No resistance. Resignation. Not a grain of sand in the transmission of power, it could crush one. Apparently, one can agree on a minimum consensus: lawyers = bad. Cheap. In the past, "Roseanne" was the symbol of the power of the working class. Even if you do not win most of the fights, you always stand up and fight again. And sometimes you win. Or at least keep his dignity. The Dan Conner of this episode was a walking corpse. Completely resigned to his fate, between bad jobs, recession and the lack of perspectives of his own family. Instead of screaming instead of struggling, instead of doing all that - resignation. The title of the episode was "Rage Against the Machine". What a label fraud. There was no rage. There was adaptation and appeasement.

Sorry, but I really do not have to look at "Roseanne" or "The Conners" anymore. Without small victories, without small escape possibilities, without any perspective that is useless. Especially if this all not addresses, who is at all the fault. You'd think Trump fan Roseanne is still writing the scripts.
