Rebooting television, just because you can…

Ok, let me start by saying I’m something of an old school kind of girl. I was raised with, well certain standards. There are ladies and there is something called lady-like and well, Roseanne Barr has never fit into either category. She did not wish to. She did not have to and there is almost always going to be a place for her style which is defined as “the female clown”. The more traditional role is the “female bawd”, you know the “dirty girl”. Barr loved this role, but it didn’t make her funny to me. My idea of funny ladies: Mae West and Sophie Tucker. West and Tucker were funny sexy women. Barr’s comedy reminded me of a girl dressed up in her brother’s sports uniform trying to be funny telling locker room jokes. It just didn’t work.
