I grew up watching this show and it's been a long , long time since I saw it for the last time. I can't even remember the show precisely! I do remember some moments, some situations and of course, those delightful characters that always made me laugh so hard. So, I guess it'll be simply great to revisit the series after so long; I bet it'll be like having a whole new experience.
Well, it's been virtually a decade that I've waited for these DVD's, so I'm really looking forward to this pack with Season 1-2. I'm glad there are extras in the pack, such as commentaries from the director and cast, and interviews with Mayim, Joey and the others!!
Thank you 'Shout!' for bringing these DVDs, and I truly hope it doesn't take long for the other seasons to come!! I'm sure this will be a sucess on DVD.
EDIT (February 22, 2009):
So here I am, finally through with the complete seasons 1 and 2. And I couldn't be happier! As a matter of fact, there was little I actually remembered about 'Blossom' - moments, a few lines, few storylines. I just knew I had loved it. But I was very surprised to realize that I still think, over 10 years later, that this is a good, well-written, funny show.
The actors did a wonderful job and the plots were interesting. The teenagers were never underestimated, very believable. I realize I appreciate the show now on a whole new level, taking into account aspects I sure didn't years before.
And the special features are great!Read more ›
For those who grew up with the show and remember it as a blast from their 1990's past, this has been a great way to kick off the new year! I was very happy to purchase this over the weekend (at a very good price, too), and it brings back fond memories of those good old '90's classics that will never again be matched by anything. Of course, considering all the reality TV and other "the way teens really are" junk that airs these days, it doesn't seem like most screenwriters are challenging themselves to meet the original standard that was set by television shows from decades past.
Just in case you aren't familiar with show's basic premise, Blossom Russo was a young teenager in a house full of men after her mother Madolyn (interesting spelling, huh?) took off, leaving her entire family behind, to pursue a singing career in Paris. Four years have already passed since this stressful family event occurred, meaning that the writers were able to bypass the deserted husband and youngsters' initial shock and anger, but there was still plenty to explore with how the four of them were coping a few years down the road.Read more ›
The original pilot aired in July of 1990 on NBC as a special and served as a backdoor pilot. Thanks to impressive ratings, the series was picked up, aired its first season in January 1991, and ran for five seasons, ending on May 22, 1995.
Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory) played the teenager Blossom Russo who wore crazy clothes and wild hats, as well as her best friend Six (played by Jenna von Oy), who talks nonstop. Her singer mother abandoned her and her two older brothers, the ex-drug addict Anthony (played by Michael Stoyanov) and the simple minded Joey (played go Joey Lawrence). Their struggling musician father, Nick (played by Ted Wass), raises them all.
The series dealt with typical teenager issues, normally adding a bit a humor to go along it. During each episode, Blossom would tape a video diary, aka a pre-blogger.
The episodes in this set are:
Disc One - Blossom Blossoms, My Sister's Keeper, Dad's Girlfriend, Who's In Charge Here?, Sex Lies and Teenagers, I Ain't Got No Buddy
Bonus Features: The Blossom "Pilot"
Disc Two - Thanks For The Memorex, The Geek, Tough Love, Such A Night, School Daze, Papa's Little Dividend, Love Stinks
Disc Three - Second Base, Here Comes the Buzz?, The Joint, I'm With The Band, Honor?Read more ›

Hi there! The Disneyland episode ("Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men") is from the third season, so unfortunately, it's not in this boxset. :( You can find it on Youtube until someone decides to release the rest of the show on DVD!

They have the rights to further seasons and want to release them, but they're tied up with the music rights. Someone is asking way too much for the rights of some of the music within the episodes, and at the same time they're not allowed to replace the music by other higher-ups. I believe that's...
