The Conners (ABC) - Season 5 Thread

Fishman is out. No mention as to why. But let's get real, how many times was he on each season? No one is going to miss him. And had they not made this announcement no one would have noticed.

Yeah, it seemed like DJ only wandered into about three scenes per season.

Now that they've thinned out the cast, they should bring in Andy and Jerry for an episode or two, and continue the Shameless thing by having Jeremy Allen White and Cameron Monaghan play them.

So it wasn't his choice. They were probably looking for ways to trim the budget.

To be brutally honest, it doesn't make a lot of sense to keep him in the main cast when he's barely in it.

Wonder if they'll have DJ re-enlist in the Army.

I only liked DJ when he was a bratty little kid on the show. As an adult with graying hair...not so much.

This sounds like a bunch of PR hooey. "“It was a very memorable appearance when this person was there"? Sounds like a cameo from the original "Roseanne". Appearance!? That rules out Fred. Andy and Jerry weren't exactly memorable. No way would George Clooney return as Booker. Could it be Fisher (Jackie's ex)? My money is on Martin Mull.

Well, that finally did a new intro. Assuming to cut out Fishman. But oddly still no Katey Sagal. WTF!? The episode was terrible btw.

Not having to watch John Goodman push that sausage out of his mouth every week is enough of an improvement for me.

LOL! Amen to that. That always made me gag. Literally. And worried about him swallowing that thing whole and choking on it.

Caught the second episode last night (missed the first one). I guess Katey isn't going to be much of a regular on the show if she isn't included in the opening? She wasn't on last night. Dan never even mentioned where she was. It was as if she was either taking a nap or a shit.

I really don't like Ben.

Do we really need to hear about Jackie and her husband having sex in every episode?

It seems all the characters suck now except for Becky and sometimes Dan.

What happened to the house they fixing up or rebuilding?

Re: Katey, LOL! I just assume Louise is "on the road" when she's not on. Sagal has since recovered from her car accident, so there no reason she's still MIA most of the time. It's just weird. Why did they have them get married on the show if they aren't going to use her in the storylines!? Also, I like Ben more at the end of last season and this season compared to the two full seasons prior. So much for he and Darlene getting married. It didn't really bring them any closer. She was her normal selfish bitch last night. I would say that's getting old but Darlene has never been a warm person. But she would turn down an Italian dinner out somewhere to stay home and watch TV?

No, we don't need to hear about their sex life all the time. But we're only 2 episodes in, so let's hope that doesn't continue. Becky continues to be my favorite. All this aside, I thought this week's show was a huge improvement over the premiere. There wasn't a single laugh on that. I laughed a few times this week. Incidentally, the ratings have improved since ABC moved it to 8:00 PM. One million+ more viewers. "The Goldberg's ratings have tanked since that was moved. One critic claimed that was mostly because of burnout. At 10 seasons they feel it's tired and has worn out it's welcome.
