This half hour certainly made me feel a little blue.
In episode 2 of season 1 of The Conners, we finally had the chance to meet David's new girlfriend, Blue, but things did not go as well as David expected them to do.
He was not the only one confused why David thought that taking Blue to a parent-teacher conference was a good idea, right? There was not much thought behind his decision that was a bit exasperating.
I know it was to create a comic relief, but there could have been a better way to present it; although I will say that blue is a fantastic match for David.

As much as I loved David and Darlene, there is something about Blue's free spirit that fits David's personality. He is also someone who is not afraid to share his opinion, which is what David also needs in his life.
One of my biggest complaints with Blue's story was that she was involved with Harris having sex with a boy. Blue knew Harris was thinking about having sex, and he did not even think about calling Darlene to tell her what was going on.
Just ignore that Blue does not have a cell phone for a moment because of the lack of respect she showed Darlene by not telling her volume.

It was great that Harris had someone to talk to, but Darlene should have been involved at the time Blue knew that Harris would have sex.
Harris was going to have sex no matter what. but at least his mother would not have been surprised by the news.
David also received a pass for not being in the house. He had a legitimate reason not to be at home and felt he could trust Blue to take care of his children. Darlene was smart in saying that children would not go there unless David is sure to go to work.
Is anyone else intrigued by the new boy that Darlene met at the bar? I have my fingers crossed Darlene finds some happiness because the woman deserves it!

I was a little surprised when Darlene and David closed the chapter on their life together and they are giving themselves the opportunity to move on, but I really love the friendship between the two.
What the hell was Becky thinking when she brought vodka in a bottle of water to Dan's workplace? This woman continues to be increasingly foolish with each episode that passes.
The only good thing you get from Becky's excessive drinking is that Dan finally opens his eyes to see that his daughter has a problem; although I'm not sure if I'll ever really get him to act together.

Becky has not yet dealt with the depression of Mark's death and now, adding that her mother passed away, Becky is pushing her feelings down. I want Becky to get the help she legitimately deserves.
Becky was such an intelligent woman throughout Roseanne and making mistake after mistake breaks my heart. Your family needs to meet with her and help her control her drink before it gets worse.
As Dan told him, if he made a mistake at work while intoxicated, it fell on him. Dan could easily lose everything if Becky went to work drunk and accidentally hurt someone or even herself.
It's shocking that Becky has not hurt anyone with the amount of alcohol she drinks. After Dan got angry with her for her drink, she immediately went to work and drank one shot after another.
It's hard to try to be a little optimistic that Dan gave Becky six weeks for her to act because she does not seem to take anything seriously; although I hope to recover old Becky before the end of the season.
Speaking of Dan, who else was incredibly happy, it seems that Dan and David can be together in the same room without Dan wanting to kill him. He would have aged fast if Dan kept his anger on David.
The most important part of the half hour is the lack of a duel for Roseanne, and it was perfectly fine. There is no need to stop at his death because we need to see the family move on, life does not stop.
Now it's your turn to tell me what you think.
Do you think Becky will succeed? Do you think Darlene could have found a new guy? What did you think of blue?
