“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (March 1, 1994): Roseanne’s kiss with Mariel Hemingway wasn’t the first instance of liplock between two women on American TV, but it was the most controversial. More than two decades later, Glen and Drew talk about this episode and how it discusses sexual gray areas, how Laurie Metcalf’s character always seemed kinda lesbian-y, why Hemingway kissed the female cast of Saturday Night Live and why Roseanne was a pioneer for LGBT diversity —— even if she’s crazy now.
