These are not exactly like the Anchor Bay DVD releases. For instance, Season 1 was issued with the syndicated edits. The rest of the 8 seasons, for the most part, were the original full-length broadcast versions, although some edits and substitutions having to do with music were made in later seasons. The biggest casualty in this was the season 8 premiere, in which the end credit sequence was a sendup of The Patty Duke Show theme featuring Sarah Chalke and the returning Lecy Goranson as the two Beckys, which can still be seen in syndication, but was edited from the Anchor Bay release, and sadly, remains missing in the Mill Creek release. Some, but not all, of the other edits, have been restored in the Mill Creek releases, such as the removal of When You Wish Upon A Star from the Disney World episodes. If you already own the Anchor Bay DVD's, I would just buy the Mill Creek releases of S1 and the seasons known to have music edits, even if all have still not been restored. But if you don't own any seasons whatsoever, this is the cheapest way to get them as opposed to buying them separately.
Each season is presented on 3 DVD discs, with 6-9 episodes per disc. Quality is generally good, with some episodes faring better than others. A couple of episodes on Season 1, including "Mall Story" have momentary pixellation where the image breaks up into green or white pixels, but such instances are only about a second long. I haven't noticed this in any other episodes, but I've only finished seasons 1-5 so far. Most of the bonus features from the Anchor Bay DVD releases have been retained. The episodes do not feature subtitles but are closed captioned, which sadly doesn't work on Blu-Ray players or DVD players using component cable setup.
The packaging is not anyone's ideal, let's get that out of the way. It's 27 discs in 27 windowed black paper sleeves stacked on top of one another in a big plastic box with a slipcover over the box. It takes up the shelf space of three standard DVD cases, and one can't help but wish Mill Creek had put this in a slipcase including 3 regular-sized DVD cases, each one containing 3 seasons, to make it a touch more convenient. There are many ways to make it all more convenient, however, so you can pick whichever method of storage you prefer for convenience. I've chosen to keep the discs in the box and just keep one or two seasons out at a time until I've gone through all of them. Also, sadly, there isn't an episode guide to be found inside, but lists of the episodes in each season can be found online and printed off, folded up, and stuck inside the box along with the discs. The paper sleeves can scratch some of the discs in transit, but many players these days can handle DVD's with a few light scratches, or even sometimes not-so-light ones. One disc, which had zero scratches whatsoever, skipped badly in my player and couldn't even be backed up onto the computer. I e-mailed Mill Creek and they sent me a replacement right away, despite their claim that they typically don't replace discs not purchased directly from their website, so if any of your discs don't work, it's worth a shot to e-mail them at the support e-mail givem at millcreekdirect.com
Despite packaging woes and the woes one might have from having up to 9 episodes crammed onto a single DVD (which usually only results in around 3.5 hours of video not sourced from film or HD video, meaning compression isn't a major problem as the quality is never going to be pristine anyway) and occasional built-in glitches or varying quality of episodes, you can't go wrong with this set. Don't buy it for more than around $35, as the packaging isn't worth more than that, but this set can be occasionally found on here for $25-$30. (It was $25.99 when I purchased it.) It's been well worth every penny to have all of my favorite Roseanne moments (sadly minus the two Beckys sketch) at my fingertips. Definitely recommended.
I can see why people don't like the packaging since the sleeves are just cheap paper ones. I recommend getting a CD/DVD holder. (Kinda like a photo album, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about) all together there is 27 DVDs so buy a 28 disc holder (around 7-9 dollars) and it'll be a lot easier when having to put in the next DVD while watching.
The actual quality of the DVDs are great! I'm so happy to be watching all the episodes in chronological order!
Seriously; if you love this show; buy this. It's well worth the money! Just remember about the packaging and just buy the disc holder. 5 stars for DVD quality; and hey, that's the most important thing here.
But the case that it comes in is rather crappy. It comes with a ton of discs, that are only in sleeves. Not a big deal. But they get scratched easier in sleeves from MY experiences with them. Plus, I just rather have them in something a bit more held in place than a sleeve.
The front of the case, when I got it was squashed, at some point in it's journey.. So I can see the plastic imprints of inside the case on the outside of it, all through the front cover. But my biggest issue with it was that, All's I did was open the case, as you would any other case.... And the plastic tabs inside the case, that these sleeves sit inside. They busted right off, just from me OPENING the case. These plastic tabs inside the case are very flimsy and crap-tastic.
But all in all, It was a good purchase. It's just annoying to fork out any amount of money for something, and to have something on it break in the first 10 minutes of using it.
