my Snark

Pop Culture . . . whatever

Life Without Extended Cable . . . I revisit old friends

For 3 weeks I haven’t watched:

“Rescue Me”

“Chelsea Lately”

“The Daily Show”

“My Life on the D List”

“The Colbert Report”

ANY Cable news (I flip from CNN, FOX, MSNBC, HLN)

Anything on Lifetime and VH1.

I don’t know why I don’t watch in the living room. I have all the “Rescue Me” episodes recorded and I could set it to record the other shows, if I was so inclined.

Comcast is supposed to “mail” me my converter box. If they bring it, I will be charged $50. I should have picked it up at a Comcast location and I would have if I’d known it would take this long.

What have I been watching?

Lots of “Roseanne.” I know every single episode and the next line that will be said. Still funny. Still relevant. Classic. I forgot all the great one-liners Darlene had. I love Johnny Galecki and I’m glad I get to see him weekly (even in my bedroom) on “The Big Bang Theory.”

Sara Gilbert (Darlene) and Laurie Metcalf (Jackie) have also appeared on “The Big Bang Theory” and have recurring roles.

Lacey Gorensen, the real Becky Conner, is still working but I haven’t seen her in anything recently. She left the show to go to college. Obviously, she and her parents have their priorities in the right place.

Michael Fishman, got married and works at his wife’s daycare center.

Sarah Chalke, Becky the Second. we all know how busy she’s been. She did “Scrubs” for many years and even has a recurring role on “How I Met Your Mother.” She’s perky and likable. We will be seeing more of her in years to come.

Glenn Quinn, who played Mark died from a heroin overdose in December, 2002.



Where is John Goodman? I heard his voice doing commercials on Air America a few years ago but other than that I haven’t seen him in anything. According to his IMDB, he’s been working consistently but not in anything mainstream. He can pick and chose now. Living off the “Roseanne” royalties must be great.

And, Roseanne. Where has she been? I hear she has a radio show on Sirius Radio. I refuse to pay for radio so I have never listened to her. She has a blog that I go to if I think about it. Maybe I’ve been there 5 times in the last 2 years.  It’s a bit too political for me. Now I guess she dresses like Hitler. Whatever.

I always liked her but she confuses me. First she was Roseanne Barr. Then she was Roseanne Arnold. Then she claimed her parents abused her and never wanted to be known as Roseanne Barr again. EVER. Then she just became Roseanne. Then she married her bodyguard. Then she became Roseanne Barr again. I never saw or heard an explaination for the change. It baffles me.
