‘Roseanne’ 1×03: Lessons in Parenting

Roseanne: Season 1, Episode 3, “Roseanne Gets the Chair,” Aired April 03, 2018.

This week on Roseanne, Darlene’s parenting skills and Roseanne’s age are both in question. Roseanne is tired of the way Darlene’s daughter, Harris, is treating everyone. If you’re like us you remember when Harris was born! Premature and was already her grandmother’s favorite. We think she’s lost that title now! Let’s break it down!

#1 Darlene has gone soft

Darlene used to be the hardcore one out of the Connor children. Now it seems like she’s just a big softy where her kids are concerned. She lets them wear what they want, do what they want, and Harris even calls her “Darlene” instead of mom. Who is this woman and what has she done with Darlene?

#2 Roseanne is not old!

Dan puts in a lift chair for Roseanne to get up and down stairs easier. Sweet gesture, right? Wrong! She tells Dan that she’s not using it because it’s for old people. She’s still young and vibrant! However, her bum knee forces her to have to use it when she wants to yell at Harris. We remember back in the day when she just yelled up the stairs instead of climbing them!

#3 Uber

Can we request an episode where we ride along with Roseanne on her Uber shifts? How hilarious would it be to have her as your driver? We can’t imagine how she treats passengers who are on the phone, not paying attention to a single word she’s saying. It’s funny in itself that she’s driving an Uber but it would be even better if it were filmed!

#4 Oh, Harris

Harris has opened an Etsy store. Good for her, right? Shows that she’s taking some initiative at her young age. However, her mom isn’t very happy when she finds out that Harris has been selling stolen clothes in her store. She gets busted when she once again leaves her laundry in the dryer. Roseanne discovers a sweater with a security tag still attached. How it didn’t break open during the spin cycle we’ll never know!

#5. Don’t mess with Granny Rose!

When Harris leaves Roseanne’s wet clothes on the dryer so she can use it, there’s hell to pay. Roseanne tells here she needs to stop acting like an entitled bitch. Well, Harris being her mother’s daughter, sasses right back calling her grandma an old hillbilly. Does Harris have a death wish? It seems like Roseanne is going to let it go until she tells Harris to rinse off her plate. While she’s doing so, Roseanne grabs her and holds her in the sink spraying her with water!

#6. Darlene finally cracks down

Darlene has felt guilty for having to move her kids back in with her parents. It’s one of the reasons why she’s not been too hard on her kids. After she finds out about the stolen clothes, she puts her foot down with Harris. Harris has a bus ticket and a place to stay in Chicago but Darlene tells her she’s not going anywhere. She also demands all of Harris’s passwords to her social media accounts. The old Darlene is back!
