A GREAT deal for those that missed the now out-of-print previous "Roseanne: Halloween" DVD ...
on October 4, 2011
This is a FANTASTIC deal for those who may have missed the previous Anchor Bay release "Roseanne: Halloween Edition." But "Roseanne: Tricks and Treats" is even better, because it's A LOT cheaper, and it includes the infamous 9th season Halloween "Absolutely Fabulous" crossover episode "Satan, Darling."
The "Roseanne" Halloween episodes are wonderful. They capture the spirit of the holiday unlike any other sitcom has been able to do. Plus, they're gleefully morbid, playfully macabre, and downright hilarious.
"Satan, Darling" is a bizarre hybrid of Edina Monsoon and patsy Stone from the enormously popular British comedy series "Absolutely fabulous" and an uneven, sometimes painfully unfunny spoof of "Rosemary's Baby." It's a very strange episode, one that takes place in Manhattan, New York after the Conners have won the lottery. I am a HUGE "AbFab" fanatic, but even I don't particularly care for this episode. Yet for completion's sake, I'm glad that it's finally included with the other Halloween episodes, and I do watch it sometimes.
The best thing of all, however, is that the special feature from the previously released Anchor Bay disc (commentary from Roseanne on one of the episodes) is also included on this DVD, too.
All in all, you get an extra episode and some great, insightful commentary from Roseanne (what she says about George Clooney is particularly interesting) at a very, very cheap price --- not a bad deal. Very, very highly recommended!
PERFECT Halloween viewing.
