Count me among the "Roseanne" fans who had this DVD box set pre-ordered until I heard about the edited content. (According to some of the newspaper sources I've seen, these episodes are edited down even farther than the syndicated versions shown daily on TV.)

No way, am I paying for edited content, even though I think "Roseanne" remains one of TV's finest comedies, and one of the few that holds up under repeated viewings. Yes, the final season was dreadful--though the series finale episode was redeeming, if not spectacular--and there's no denying the content slipped from 1994 on (the horrible "Gilligan's Island" take-off and endless OJ references spring to mind), but, for me, "Roseanne" remains the ultimate "comfort food" TV, no weight-related pun intended. Even though I've seen the episodes so often I know many of the lines by heart, I still laugh every time I watch an old episode--which, thanks to plentiful reruns, is almost daily. There is no other show, ever, that I can say that about.

And, as soon as they release unedited versions of the episodes on DVD, I'll buy the complete set. Until then, I'll be content with TV replays.

UPDATE (2014): Many of the reviews, mine included, were made for the original 2005 DVD release of the Roseanne show (see: Roseanne: Season 1), where the season 1 DVD did feature edited episodes. This oversight has been corrected in later releases, including this one: Roseanne: Season 1, which features, full, unedited episodes. Amazon, though, continues to carry over the same reviews for all editions, which can lead to confusion and inaccuracy.

1.0 out of 5 stars COMPLETE should mean COMPLETE! August 19, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was a huge fan of Roseanne when it aired on ABC. I rolled videotape from the start of the very first show and collected every episode from beginning to end, minus commercials. I cannot understand charging upwards of thirty or forty dollars for what are NOT the complete episodes. If you watch the DVDs of "M*A*S*H" and "Friends" and then watch the same shows on TBS and Hallmark, there's quite a bit missing in those syndicated airings....some of it in the case of those "M*A*S*H" shows is quite noticeable. I agree with the folks who've gone ahead and recorded the syndicated shows from Nick at Nite or wherever. The fans of "Roseanne" deserve to have the DVDs of the complete original airings of the show they made such a huge hit, and without the annoying banners (very distracting on all those channels) and logos in the corner through the entire shows. I loved this show...but unless Carsey-Werner allows the re-release of the DVDs with truly complete episodes, I've got the shows complete and uncut on VHS tapes from beginning to end. Anyone who thinks we're whining about this and thinks we're not true fans of the show is seeling themselves short. Funny show? Absolutely! A good deal on DVD in this version? Absolutely NOT!

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware...EDITED/CUT episodes !!! August 5, 2005
It is getting ridiculous how often studios are released EDITED, CUT versions of TV shows instead of the full versions as seen on network TV. Why pay money for edited content? Each show is cut by 2 minutes or so, so you miss about 10% of the episode. If you think it isn't a big deal, feel free to send me 10% of your paycheck each week....AVOID this set, write a polite letter to the studio telling them why you won't buy it and maybe they'll get the message that consumers want the full version on DVD, not edited junk. If you taped these off the original ABC airing, hold on to the the tapes!

Sorry to say THE COSBY SHOW DVD is the same situation, as is the first season of THAT'S MY MAMA.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wish I Had Read Here First... August 24, 2005
By Audio
Roseanne is one of the most classic shows to ever appear on television - and here we have a horrible set that I should have come here to read about before I forked over my credit card number.

These episodes are identical to those being shown in syndication right now (in my area, Roseanne airs for at least six hours - 12 episodes - every single day) on various stations, so it was a huge waste for me to buy this set since I could have just recorded the seasons on my DVD recorder/Tivo. And, I wouldn't have to wait years for them to get around to releasing them.

Carsey/Werner, the owners of the license this and the recently released and similarly CUT UP Cosby set, really need to wake up to what fans want. We don't want the same episodes we've been watching on TV for the past decade or two, we want the original, uncut airings that we haven't seen since the episodes were first run.

When a show like Roseanne is on constantly on TV throughout the day, we need more than edited, identical to what we can see on TV now versions. Carsey/Werner waited eight years into the DVD format to begin releasing these shows - too bad that wait didn't mean it would be done right.

1.0 out of 5 stars Was planning on purchasing this until... August 24, 2005
... I read about the edited episodes. Sorry to the person that requested that people not write in to complain about this but maybe if the right people see how many sales they are losing, this will stop happening.

Yes, the series itself is a good one! It was definitely on my 'buy' list but unfortunately no longer. Same goes for 3rd Rock and Cosby. There is no good excuse for this. I'm suspicious it's their way of trying to milk us even more in the future. Can you see it in a few years? "Roseanne Season One -first time ever with unedited episodes"!!! As consumers, we need to show them we're getting wise to these tricks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roseanne is simply the best
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. Read more

My daughter is collecting the set. It's fun to go back and watch with her and to see how the actors have developed into more current roles. Good for mindless relaxation.

It's being released by a different studio. That's why the old sets are going out of print.

Mill Creek is merely FIXING what Anchor Bay messed up the first time around. They shouldn't have to pay for that.
