I get this as a gift for my daughter and she was well pleased very happy with it.

That's not to say that there are a lot of bad ones, but there were a couple that I just skipped over; to me the gay episode was just forced and tedious.

I really liked it while it was on, and decided to get the complete series to watch whenever I wanted.

The seasons of Grounded for Life are kind of a mess. The last five episodes of season one weren't run until season 2. But they are included on Season 1. For season 2, 17 new episodes were produced. This was also their last complete season on Fox as the third season had them swap over to the WB after only 3 episodes. This is one of those shows that deserves a DVD release since it was nearly impossible to follow the show when it was broadcast. Donal Logue was one of the great TV dads - he was like Robert Young - if Robert had knocked up his wife in high school and pretty much went from teenager to dad without getting to enjoy his misspent college years.

The episode on the set include:

Don't Let Me Download
Bang on a Drum
Smoke on the Daughter
I Saw Daddy Hitting Santa Claus
We Are Family
Mr. Roboto
Don't Fear the Reefer
Take It to the Limit
Eddie Said Knock You Out
Safety Dance
Relax!
The Kids Are Alright
Swearin' to God
Eddie and This Guy with Diamonds
I Fought the In-Laws
Dust in the Wind
Oops!...I Did It Again

The bonus features on this 3 DVD collection include:

Bloopers
"From Ashes To Ashton": An Interview with Ashton Kutcher
"Kevin Corrigan: He Ain't Eddie, He's My Brother": A Brand New Interview with Kevin Corrigan ("Eddie")
"Sibling Revelry": Interviews with Jake Burbage ("Henry") and Griffin Frazen ("Jimmy")

as a uk resident, i had to wait until the early hours of the morning to watch GFL, and it was always the same few episodes repeated.

when i saw that the dvd's were to be released i was so happy.

GFL is one of those rare american tv shows that doesnt tire, and stays funny and realistic throughout. the characters are all beleivable, and are acted perfectly.

i cant wait for the rest of the seasons to come on sale.

This show is hysterically funny and it is consistent. There isn't a bad episode on any of the available DVD's. THe casting is perfect. All the characters contribute and all are funny and incredibly likable. If you haven't seen the show check it out. It's one of the best sitcoms ever that many have never heard of.

This is one of those shows that was kind of overlooked in its day. It was never top of the heap, but it was well produced and well acted. Season one was fresh, interesting, and I loved all the episodes. At it's heart it's pure to what a "sitcom" is; it's a "situation comedy". I very much like the style of story telling where they generally start in the middle and then bits get filled in as you go. It's sort of like that old Seinfeld episode they did in reverse.

Season two isn't quite pure gold like Season 1 was, which is to be expected with more episodes. That's not to say that there are a lot of bad ones, but there were a couple that I just skipped over; to me the gay episode was just forced and tedious. The cast remains the same, with the addition of Lily's new boyfriend who gets the screen time that the next door neighbor boy used to get. He's this drummer that I just didn't like for some reason. It's probably just me, but something about him was offputting. I liked the dorky neighbor better. He isn't gone completely, just not shown as much. If you didn't like him, it's a plus I suppose.

Even with one or two episodes that didn't pass muster, the vast majority of the season is great. For some reason they seem to be releasing a much cheaper price than their initial release. For the price you can get them now, this is completely a no-brainer. Buy the DVDs, you'll get WAY more fun than their cost.

If you like this series, you may also want to check out Titus. It has a similar feel.

I watched this show for years and I was thrilled when it came out on DVD. It's hard to find in stores, thank goodness for Amazon. This season has some hilarious episodes. It has fewer episodes than some shows, so that's a bit of a downer, but every one is different. I really enjoy this show, it's a household favorite.

First off its 1 AM on July 2nd.... That means I just finished the ABC Family marathon of the show!!! Yay!!! Now the show is great, but the sad thing is not many people even know it is around. I had never heard of it until it came to ABC Family. It is under-rated and the dvd is a must own for all fans of the show.

I don't ever purchase DVDs of tv shows with the exception of three and this is one of them. Acting isn't superb however that just adds to the comic relief. I honestly don't think I can pick a favorite season because it makes me LOL every time I watch it.

Very good if you enjoyed season one. A very realistic view of what a crazy family is like who don't punish their children by means of physical contact, but by sitting them down and talking to them
