I thought "Complete Season" meant just that, COMPLETE! Why are we still getting butchered versions that we can see on TV? First episode they cut the whole ending off. No Patty Duke Show ending? They play that part on Nick at Nite! Then on the Direct to Video episode they cut a theme song that ruins the entire joke. The family is watching TV while Roseanne is out of the room and Dan says "You know, this was the 'Friends' of the 70's". The joke doesn't work on the DVD because it is not the theme song they originally played. They played the Three's Company theme song and on the DVD it is some generic 70's sounding song with no lyrics. How much could it possibly cost to get the rights to use a couple of seconds of an old TV theme song? I know these companies can afford it. Speaking of money, I'm sick of paying $25 or more for butchered TV shows I can see on regular TV. If this had been uncut I would have given it 4 stars but cut up only gets a 2 star rating. Although there are some very good episodes included in this season I cannot give more than 2. I thought we were done with cut up versions after the first season. What happened?

I thought the package says "The COMPLETE 8TH Seaon"

Its all edited!!!
RIP OFF!!!!!!

Well I have been a HUGE HUGE HUGE Roseanne fan since the very begginging. I actually remember being 17 years old and sitting on the floor and seeing the pilot.
So naturally I was thrilled beyond belief when they came to DVD. The first season DVD was totally flawed as the episodes were cut. I heard it was the fault Anchor Bay. Well here is season 8 all totally cut!!!! I am a HUGE fan of this show, and still am and always will be, but today I buy the season 8 DVD and find the first episode, "Shower the People You LOve With Stuff" RUINED!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the ending tag with Lecy Goranson and Sarah Chalke (the two Beckys) doing the Patty Duke gag! OMG I thought that was classic! I actually couldnt breath when I first saw it, I laughed so hard! And was so exited to see it here, but I see its been CUT all we get for our money is a black screen and credits... That made me say I WANT MY MONEY BACK..
As for the rest of the season, its great, but yes you do kind of get the feeling the show is getting tired. But most shows do by their 8TH season. But you kinda didnt care as Roseanne STILL pushed the envelope, and thought "outside the box". But back in 1995-96 when the 8TH season first aired I still watched every week as I did up to the very end.
I would tell people to look at "GEORGIOU DEMETRIOS"'s reveiw of this DVD and I would high five him, cuz I couldnt have said it better. My beef is not with Roseanne, or the show, its that I just spent my hard earned money on this DVD and Im really dissapointed, as Georgiou said all these great episodes are edited. SO I rated the DVD with 1 star, not the show, as I feel (being my favorite TV series) that its iconic. You would think that a show as realistic and revolutionary as this we would get our moneys worth.......

Season eight of Roseanne is the one where everything finally began to truly come apart. This is not to say there aren't some good episodes, but you have to really pick through episodes full of fantasy, inane slapstick, and politically correct undertones to get to the truly good blue collar slice-of-life episodes that made up the majority of episodes in prior years. WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD.

The season opener, "Shower the People You Love with Stuff", very unceremoniously returns Lecy Gorenson as Becky Conner Healy, with Roseanne taking advantage of the sudden replacement with an inside joke by remarking that it seems like Becky's been gone for four years - exactly how long Lecy Gorenson has been gone from the show. The end of the show makes fun of the switch of actresses playing Becky even more with a clever imitation of the opening theme song of 60's series "The Patty Duke Show" in which Patty Duke played twin cousins. It is a good opener to the season, but it is not typical of what follows.

One problem with season eight is that Roseanne NEVER did fantasy episodes well during any season. Fortunately, past seasons had limited doses of them. In season eight, though, we get "Halloween: The Final Chapter", "The Fifties Show", "Springtime for David", and "The Getaway, Almost". Not all of these episodes are pure fantasy. Some of them, such as "The Getaway" are more politically correct slapstick than anything. However, they all seem like outrageous and disjointed half hour comedy skits involving characters who hardly know each other rather than part of a show about a middle class family trying to get by the trials that life throws their way. It was particularly sad to see what became of the Halloween episode this year, always a Roseanne staple.

Roseanne is a classic, obviously and when even just one gag gets taken out, it ruins it. A lot of people expected this to have the full end credit sequence spoofing The Patty Duke Show with the two Beckys. It does not. A shame.

This review is for the 2013 Mill Creek release:

Roseanne is my favorite sitcom of all time and this, perhaps even more than season nine, is my least favorite season. There are a few gripes that I have with both this DVD set and the season that lead me to give the two-star review.
I'll start with the DVD problems.
I have a very strong feeling that these episodes are edited. Not only do they clock in at just under 23 minutes, in the other Mill Creek releases the episodes last 24+ minutes. On top of that the most famous ending sequence of this show is missing from the DVD, when Sarah Chalke and Lecy Goranson have the Patty Duke homage.
Also, the extras are LIMITED, and the video commentary with Roseanne and Michael Fishman made me feel uncomfortable, like there was no chemistry between them at all.
Now, my problems with this season in general. This season was very unfunny compared to others. And until the tail end of the season, it's not even dramatic. That lead to many episodes feeling like they were just thrown together in order to add an extra season to the show. Lecy's return was welcomed with open arms but her Becky character started off rusty, like she forgot how to play Becky, up until mid season. There is almost no interaction between the couples (Darlene/David, Becky/Mark) for the majority of the season. And John Goodman seemed very out of place this season, like he didn't want to be there anymore. On top of it all, some episodes were aired out of filming schedule which lead to some confusion for example *SPOILER ALERT* several episodes after the baby is born, Roseanne is pregnant again and Dan still has his beard.
If you love Roseanne buy this DVD, if you need to finish your collection of Roseanne DVD's, buy this DVD. If you have no idea what Roseanne is and are only semi-interested, buy seasons 2-6 and call it a day.
