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