Despite being from Lanford, Barb has a superior air and a sharp tongue, but she's much more agreeable when she's had a few drinks. She's judgmental about Ben's relationship with Darlene (Sara Gilbert), and describes the Conner house as, 'Like one of those places they break into on that program Cops.'" (Deadline.com, 12/30)
