They looked fine. They're not comedians, nor do they probably have much experience in a comedy roast situation like this. Sometimes it's hit or mis. They weren't bad, but a big part of comedy is delivery. They need to work on their delivery and timing a bit.
By the way, where was Sara Gilbert?

She did something similar on the Roseanne reunion on Larry King's show. Smirked and mocked Larry like a bratty teenager might do to a substitute teacher. Larry's a dolt, of course, but it was strange to see this thirtyish woman behaving like a snotty child.

As i recall, Lecy was replaced by Sarah Chalke and then came back for the final season.
|by Anonymous||reply 23||08/14/2012|
Lecey left at the start of the 5th season (1992-1993) to attend college. They sent her off by having her and Mark elope and move to Minneapolis so he could take a job there. Becky was gone for the rest of the season. Sarah Chalke wasn't brought in to replace her until Season 6 (1993-1994); Mark returned with her, even dumber. Chalke stayed through Season 7 (1994-1995), and then in Season 8 (1995-1996), Lecey returned. Chalke came back in the latter half of the season to do some episodes that Lecey was unable to do (like the Disney World two-parter), then Chalke took over again full-time for the final Season 9 (1996-1997).
BTW: I love the "Patty Duke Show" spoof they did when Lecey returned in Season 8. The end credits had Lecey and Chalke spoofing the "Identical Cousins" intro.

Go and ask how she reconciles her celebrated role playing a cat with her signature song about a bird, "Meadowlark." Don't let her conduct the class until she takes sides as either a cat person or bird lover, then mock her choice. Then make meowing noises and ask to stroke her kitty while whistling "Memory."

I loved Lecy as Becky.She had a really expressive face and the coolest hair.

I strongly disagree, R26. Lecey was the better actress, and not bad-looking I should add. But more importantly, she fit in with that family dynamic. Becky #1 could hold her own against Darlene and Roseanne, was intelligent, and had more chemistry with "Mark." When Chalke took over, she turned Becky into a dumb blonde bimbo whose only shtick seemed to be to whine about something with hands on hips, and then storm out: Chalke also looked out of place in that family; she looked like she belonged with a WASPy family, instead. And though she and Glenn Quinn complemented each other physically, they seemed to be lacking in chemistry.

Poor Glenn Quinn, he was so cute and he was also a decent actor. He became a junkie and died of an overdose some years ago.

Goranson's Becky was the most realistic portrayal of a teenager ever put on television. She did a phenomenal job.
|by Anonymous||reply 41||08/15/2012|
Agree, the whole cast was superb and then all the featured big name actors, like Shelley Winters, Estelle Parsons, Sandra Bernhard. But Mackenzie Phillips as Julie on "One Day at a Time was also a good t.v. teen portrayal.

In a recent interview, Lecy Goranson said she never tuned into the show to see Sarah Chalke playing Becky and never even bothered to watch the show's finale. I find that really odd. I mean, I get that for some people a job is just a job and maybe she never gave "Roseanne" two thoughts when she wasn't on set. That's fine. But it surprises that she really cared so little. Also, if she really didn't care about any of it, then why is she still agreeing to interviews about the show 15 years later?
|by Anonymous||reply 57||08/18/2013|
I heard the rumor she's a lesbian, but she's so flaky bordering on "off", I'm hoping they're just confusing her with Sara. If she is gay, she's self hating:
[quote]Goranson appeared on Larry King with the cast of Roseanne and objected to episodes that focused on homosexuality. Goranson referred to herself as "a good Christian."
