Bright, original, funny
5 July 2005 | by cockezvilleSee all my reviews

I remember first seeing this show on HBO, not to be confused with the situation comedy that ran for many years. This was a special in which Roseanne demonstrated her unique comedy style, and introduced us to the concept of "Domestic Goddess" This show was funny, outrageous and had me splitting my sides with her sarcastic banter of what it was like to be a "trailer trash" housewife.

I am certain that ultimately "Roseann" the long running comedy skit was created as a birth from this comedy sketch. Roseanne's stand-up act was one of the best. This is a fun watch!

Bill Pentland Roseane's first husband was one the writers of this show, as he was one of the brightest and best writers of the the original series show before Roseanne got so nuts. Tom Arnold also shares writing credits, long before they were married. The best parts of this DVD are when Roseanne is without the sketch family and simply gives us her impressions of life as a "Domestic Goddess", as she sits on the couch, eating Cheetohs and just doing her routine. That is classic Roseanne Barr.
