Don't let the controversy stop you from seeing a classic.

Classic series, great show, great season. The first edition of season one had edited syndicated episodes but it was sorted out. This appears to be that edition, i had it & had to buy a later local Australian version. Don't let the controversy stop you from seeing a classic.

Beware: edited episodes, otherwise it's cool
Verified purchase
Pay regular price for a season of edited, not uncut episodes of a popular series? I don't know; I'd rather get uncut versions if I can, so I'd been holding out for either when it's on sale at a very low price or when it's re-released in an uncut edition. I found out unexpectedly that it's on sale with a price so low I decided to order it. This set arrived within days, all ready to play. I enjoyed the episodes, all under 22 minutes each, especially one I don't ever remember seeing before: 'Father's Day' (ep. 14 on disc 2).

It's true that all episodes here are edited similar to what's been shown in syndication. There's a scene I remember in the one with Darlene finding her newspaper job more than she can handle that was omitted ('The Monday Thru Friday Show', ep. 12 on disc 2): if I remember right, after the commercial fadeout midway through, Darlene reports to her boss for not delivering all the newspapers. The boss goes into lecture mode, but before he's finished Darlene interrupts him and asks him point-blank if she's fired. The boss says yes... Anyway, I don't remember everything from this season as I wasn't into back then. Nonetheless, I got to see everything and enjoyed it.

Box art dressed in McDonald's colors look nice. I like the trivia questions listed inside the cases. Ditto for the extras included. Not just that but the extras as well as the commentaries are closed-captioned (no subtitles). Most other shows on DVD can't claim this fact. Thank you, Roseanne and everyone responsible for putting it together.

Would I recommend this product? Yes, but considering the edited content you might want to wait until it's on sale or when it's re-released in uncut form. Don't know about the latter, but at least it's an idea. Enjoy...

Roseanne is simply the best
Verified purchase
Let's face it, Roseanne is the greatest American TV comedy of all time, on par with I Love Lucy.

The early seasons of this show were, in my opinion, unparalleled. When they originally ran, I remember loving them because they reminded me of my own family (I was about the age of Darlene at the time). No other show was brave enough to show a family with a house that needed work, parents that needed work, and a family dynamic that had warts but at its core was all about love and concern for one another. The relationship between Dan and Roseanne was so real and believable that you forget you're watching a TV show. And John Goodman's portrayal as a loving dad is so on-point that it's hard to believe he wasn't even a parent for the first season or so (thanks, Wikipedia!).

In its later years, this show jumped the shark (the lotto? for real?), but the first couple of seasons of Roseanne are my "desert island" pick for TV.

Missing episodes
Verified purchase
Fairly good video quality but no captions for hearing impaired. Case wasn't the best as all discs are piled up in one slot, which can damage them trying to get them out.
Otherwise, it really is great seeing these again in order without annoying ads.

Definitely go with the Mill Creek release on this one
Verified purchase
Normally I would prefer to have the original release with the better packaging, but since that release has edited episodes I'm glad for this version. Season 1 in my opinion isn't quite as funny as some of the later seasons, but it's still a good season to buy so you can own it and watch where it all began.

Love this show
Verified purchase
I remember watching this as a child and loved it. When i saw that they offered it on dvd i was extremely excited. I was alittle nerves about getting it since alot of the review said that they weren't complete episodes or something but i couldn't tell if anything was missing. The show is as funny as i remeber it. The only thing that kinda dissapointed me, which i knew before i bought it was the way the disc are packaged. i wouldnt have minded spending alittle extra money for them to add alittle more plastic for the disc to connect too. The outer caseing is fine like you would get with regular dvd you buy but the disc are in these little paper shleves.They could of done better!! All in all i would recomend this product.

HORRIBLE! CUT VERSION
Verified purchase
Let me start by saying when I finally heard they had a release date for Roseanne I was sooo excited. I watch the show every episode on Nick @ Nite. The only thing I cant stand about it is scenes are cut out! When I heard about the DVD I was Psyched!!! I kept on checking amazon for news on updates and such in the reviews. When I read it was the cut scenes I was LIVID! I went to the carsey-warner site to fire off an email. Couldn't find an email address. Went to the anchor site and found an address. Their site says reply sent back within 4 days. That was Aug 4. Still no response this is a copy of the email I sent to them.

"HI Can you tell me why they decided to put on DVD Roseanne in the syndicated program instead of the original airing program on ABC? Why would people purchase this DVD when you can record the same cut program on Nick @ Nite? Are there any plans to release the uncut/unsyndicated seasons? I have looked at the carsey warner website but they do not have a contact page. If you have any info on them to email I would appreciate it and would gladly share my distaste in the release with them as well! Thank you."

NO Way will I be buying this DVD...much to my dismay!!! All I can hope for is more people email their dislike of the production and dont buy the DVD set. If they dont get $$ hopefully that will send a message to them!! (...)

I enjoyed the show very much that's the reason why I purchased the whole seasons but I did leave a comment once before that I am a little disappointed in one thing. 😊 Amazon is an amazing company and I just don't have any complaints .I do wish that when I purchase these episodes and seasons that the shows would not cut off before their finished the last minute or two of the show like a punchline it gets cut off on every single episode and I would be thrilled if there someway you can go in and fix that .thanks so much .......
