Rosie Roseanne

I'm watching Roseanne right now. There's something about the oldies. The reason they end up in reruns and lasting so long is they have a certain quality about them that made them special. Roseanne lasted 10 years on the air. That's a long time in the life of a sitcom. There aren't many like that. There was M*A*S*H, and a few others. Even some of the early very loved shows didn't make that many years, I Love Lucy I believe was 5. Of course there were spin offs, but shows like Andy Griffith didn't have that many years, but for their time they lasted a long time. They all bring back a time that is simpler, memories of times enjoyed of our own past, and a look into our own psyche.
