Roseanne Season 10 Episode 6 Review: No Country for Old Women

At least Jackie and Roseanne have the same feelings when it came to their mom. 

Was anyone else getting deja-vu watching Roseanne Season 10 Episode 6, or was it just me?

Hearing Roseanne and Jackie discuss their shared dislike of their mother brought back a lot of memories from past seasons. 

Beverly - Roseanne Season 10 Episode 6

The relationship between Roseanne, Jackie, and Beverly can easily be seen as controversial. Having two children flat out say they hate their mother is something you don't see very often without some type of tender moment coming out where the parent apologizes to the kid and vice versa.

I imagine it will never happen this way on Roseanne. 

It's easy to look at Roseanne, and Jackie's relationship with Beverly and be completely on their side. We have to remember they came from a very broken home where their father used to beat them.

Who could forget when they went to their old house, and Roseanne pointed out where their father kept his belt to intimidate his daughters?

Even though the sisters use humor when it comes to Bev, the strong dislike they have for her can be easily justified. While many people may have an issue with the way they treat Bev, I can understand why they have so much hostility when it comes to their mother.

Do I really believe they hate her as much as they say they do? Of course not, but there will always be a lot of animosity when it comes to this relationship. 

Moving on to the more comical moments, it was hilarious hearing Bev tell Roseanne she is a bit bossy when it came to Dan. Is this really a surprise to anyone? Hasn't she always been bossy when it comes to every person in her life?

It was great when Roseanne dropped Bev off at Jackie's apartment early in the morning.

If I had to live with a woman like Bev, I probably would have done the same thing. There is only so much insanity you can put up with; though Roseanne doesn't have the room for Bev in the house.

Who else started cracking up when Jackie said the reason she took seven hours at the grocery store was because of long lines?

I guess you'll come up with any excuse to ensure you don't have to be around someone you don't enjoy. Adding in going to the DMV to get an early license renewal was icing on the cake. 

Beverly: You've been grocery shopping for seven hours. What took you?
Jackie: Long lines.

I can't believe I am going to say this, but I agreed with Bev when it came to the marzipan village. Who makes an entire marzipan village, and tries to play it off as a hobby? Here's hoping it does help Jackie with her anxiety because it would probably make me even more anxious.

I couldn't blame Becky at all for wanting to get Bev out of her apartment as soon as possible.

We have to remember she got kicked out of the nursing home because of all the sex she was having, but my goodness, she could have at least waited an entire day before getting right down to it.

It was a genius idea to cast Christopher Lloyd as Bev's boyfriend, Lou.

He always does such a great job of playing these characters who are just a little bit off their rocker. I figured Jackie would end up being the one to take Bev in – it just made the most sense. 

Moving on, I found myself agreeing with Dan when it came to the birdhouse. He agreed the birdhouse was extremely creative, but it wasn't what the client wanted. I understood Darlene wanting to encourage Mark, but she needed to see both sides of the argument.

I had a feeling Mark would end up making the birdhouse the way Dan had initially wanted it to be made.

It's OK to be creative, and to express yourself, but you also have to do the job correctly. It's also wonderful Darlene is a very opened mom, and she wants her kids to be as happy as they can be. 

Which brings me to my only complaint, I really would have enjoyed seeing more interaction between Dan, and Mark.

While I understood the focus was solely on Bev, and where she would end up living, it would have been lovely to see more bonding time between Dan, and Mark. 

Now it's your turn to tell me what you think. 

Do you think Roseanne and Jackie are justified in having anger towards their mom? Do you think they will ever have a civilized relationship? Do you want to see more bonding between Dan and his grandkids?

Let me know in the comments below.
