  • On Rosseanne
  • Thank you for the most interesting article on Roseanne Arnold I have ever read (#89, Oct. 25). Your reporter helped me understand the ”real” Roseanne a little better. I have nothing but respect and admiration for this lady.

What is the great fascination with Roseanne? It seems that when she and Tom Arnold decide they want to tell a story, you can’t get enough paper and pens. Someone should pull the plug on these two — they are overexposed. The fault doesn’t lie with Roseanne and Tom — they can’t help it. But you can.

Thank you for running some flattering, glamorous photos of Roseanne Arnold. It’s about time we saw her in a different light!

Parental Consent
I have been a devoted subscriber to your magazine since its inception and thought it couldn’t get any better — but it did. Your new section, Parents’ Guide to movies and videos, is a godsend. As the mother of an 8- and a 10- year-old who love going to the movies and renting videos, I thank you.
Janie McKee

Thank you for the new Parents’ Guide. Many times I haven’t taken my son to the movies or rented videos because I wasn’t sure of their content. With this guide, I won’t have to sit through movies with a dull ache in the pit of my stomach waiting for something unexpected to happen or be said.

Revealing Bonet
Your ad for a subscription states that Entertainment Weekly gives the reader ”the best the worlds of music, film, television, books, and video have to offer.” If the picture of Lisa Bonet is the best of the book world, that industry is in trouble. It should not have been printed in a family magazine.

‘Hood’ Winked
I loved Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and I can respect an intelligent review, even if I don’t agree with it. But your magazine is like the class bully who has decided to hate one individual for no reason. Your reviews have convinced me of only one thing: Entertainment Weekly does not like Kevin Costner.

News Worthy
When Final Exit came out, your article was the single best piece written on the subject. When the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill case monopolized the news, once again the best analysis of what had happened was in Entertainment Weekly. If a serious subject relates at all to entertainment, you cover it in a first- rate manner.
