It was okay. I didn't laugh much. I'll keep watching to see if I like it more.

I am loving it. 2nd episode is much better so far. More thoughts later.

It was everything I hoped it would be. The politics aspect had some good digs as well as understanding. Jackie's "What's up, deplorable?" to Roseanne was great as was Jackie saying that all the weight Roseanne lost "must of been the good Roseanne". I laughed a number of times. It was great to see Darlene still have her sarcastic/snide comments but also see how mature she is now and the touching moments with her and Mark. The first episode was great, but the second episode was even better. It was like it was in it's heyday. It felt like no time had passed.

A lot of good lines, heart and emotion, strong writing on touchy subjects, Laurie Metcalf/Jackie is still as awesome as ever, and so on. It felt like coming home again. It was a revival done right.

EDIT: The ratings are in and they are huge! An average of 18.2 million and a 5.1 in the demo. When you factor in DVR and all that, it will be even bigger. The biggest launch of the entire season and the biggest revival launch. It was ABC's highest rated show in that time since 2006. ABC also notes that it was higher rated than the last 12 episodes of the original show. What's even cooler is that the second episode was higher rated than the first. That doesn't always happen. Episode 2 had 18.6 million viewers. I think season 11 is a safe bet.

This is huge, folks:

Jackie is still my favorite character of them all. I love her "woman power, and equality anyone can do what they set their mind to no matter whether they're male or female" attitude! She was quick to tell Becky and also Mark to do what they feel is right for them while it took Roseanne and Dan time to get on board with it. Although, they still aren't on board with Becky yet. I'm all for her doing it if she truly feels it's right. Though isn't it usually the wife's eggs and the husbands sperm that is used? I don't get why they are going to use Becky's instead? Or am I forgetting something else?

Did anyone notice that Mark's teacher in the second episode was the same teacher Roseanne had to go see at the start of season one because Darlene was barking in class?

I think it's interesting that episode 2 (the one with no politics) of the revival was higher rated than episode 1 (the one with politics). 18.6 million to 17.7 million.

That makes sense. Most people watch their favorite shows to escape real life so the episode without politics being higher rated makes a lot of sense.
