Roseanne, a show which comedically celebrated the ups and downs of a working class American family, was one of the most successful series of the late ’80s and early ’
Roseanne burst onto the screen in 1988, when top-rated sitcom The Cosby Show exuded a smug Father Knows Best glossiness. In contrast, the blue-collar Conner family bickered with the offhand nastiness of real families, which didn’t mean they loved each other any less. Front and center was Roseanne Barr (now known by the single name Roseanne), a former stand-up comedian who wasn’t afraid to rock the boat (her fights with producers were legendary). When even the fat guys on sitcoms have svelte, hottie wives, it’s hard to believe t… More >>

  1. I have watched this show a couple of times. But I hate it because Rosanne and Dan get in an argument just about every episode is the same. They get mad and cuss. I would definitley not buy this dvd if you paid me to buy it.

    I read on here earlier that someone was complaining about certain things being cut from the show for the DVD. So what? People like me wouldn’t know the difference because I only started watching the show a few months ago. I am hoping, and this seems a bit far off considering how long it took to even put this one into thought, that they will release season 6 sometime because my favorite episode is within that one. I have seen most of the first season, and happen to love the “song writing” episode, entitled “Radio Days” Gee whiz I believe we have an undiscovered country singer here! LOL Anyway, y’all complainin’ ’cause the episodes are edited, get over it and just be happy we’re even getting the shows, got that? It’d be no different than watching the reruns. I’m definitely gonna buy this, and any other DVD’s they may release of this show.

    I too saw Roseanne on the Carson(R.I.P. Johnny, we miss you)show and I thought she was the most abrasive,bitter and mean spirited comic I had ever seen. I hoped I would never see her again, but she got her own show and guess what? More of the same, bitter,mean spirited and abrasive junk. And people ate it up! I’ve never understood it and I doubt I ever will, my only explanation is their the same people who made that brainless piece of crap “Fear Factor” such a huge hit. Thank you for reading my review.

    Roseanne was, in it’s prime, one of the best sitcoms ever made. In an era where Cosby ruled the airwaves, it was refreshing to watch a sitcom family that experienced the ups and downs of a REAL family, like ours. They had financial troubles. They fought – sometimes over trivial (but immediately recognizable to anyone with a family of their own) issues, sometimes about big things that threatened to tear them apart. These weren’t always resolved within half an hour. The show tackled some heavy issues – domestic abuse, teenage pregnancy, mental illness, but didn’t preach. They also covered the lighter side of family life, with episodes chronicling a day at the mall, or a teenaged daughter’s first date. When it was good, Roseanne was very, very good. But when it was bad… Unfortunately, like many high rated television series, Roseanne did wear out it’s welcome. The entire last season (as well as a fair amount of the other later seasons) was atrocious. The final episode, where we learn that the entire show’s run was actually a novel written by Roseanne Connor about her family (with much creative license), was lame. The show really should have bowed out gracefully while on top of it’s game several years earlier. The final years get zero stars from me, however, the earlier ones get five. It probably averages out to more like three stars, but I enjoyed the show too much overall to rate it lower than four.

    Who cares if they are edited! It is still Roseanne! It is one of the best sitcoms of all-time, How does anyone know which parts are being edited out anyways¿! It’s not even out yet. How do you know they didnt edit out the pointless parts¿¿!! You people need to stop whining about it being edited. Get over it and buy the DVD! There are good extras also.
