I know that Roseanne is not everyone’s childhood favorite, however, it is another nostalgic show for me and I have recently ventured into a marathon of the show…currently watching Season 7 Episode 15 and it is made me realize Johnny Galecki’s character David is similar to Big Bang Theory character Leonard.
Lets start with how many characters from Roseanne being in the Big Bang Theory. Darlene is Leslie Winkle, Aunt Jackie is Mrs, Cooper (Sheldon’s mom), & David is Leonard.
Galecki in both shows struggles with characteristics that result in a submissive role in relationships. He has a literal and more figurative makeshift family situation to make up of the lack of supportive parental figures each of his characters have had to struggle with.
Somehow it took Season 7 Episode 10 of Roseanne for me to spark this blatant realization….
