Default 8 Simple Rules - The Complete First Season DVD Review

The legendary John Ritter returns to series television in a family sitcom that aired on ABC and was laugh-out-loud funny! Yes, 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter is finally on DVD with The Complete First Season from Buena Vista Home Entertainment! John Ritter plays Paul, a writer who now works from home. He is a little rusty in the parenting department and is forced to meet fatherhood head-on when his wife Cate (Katey Sagal) returns to work. His two teenage daughters Bridget and Kerry (Kaley Cuoco and Amy Davidson) and wisecracking son Rory (Martin Spanjers) make Paul’s situation daunting but never dull!

All 28 first season episodes are on this 3-disc set which also features a blooper reel. Unfortunately, John Ritter passed away as you all know in September 2003 (just prior to the second season airing, he produced three episodes, which we will see on a Season 2 DVD), so you will want to get this DVD to pay homage to him.

Please post any questions or comments about this set.

It's good that it's coming out but they should've had more special features like a behind the scenes with the cast talking about John, etc.

It would be like another John Ritter tribute which would be nice since we can't see him in anything new ever again!!

They'll probably do a rememberance featurette for the second season release, since those were his last episodes.

I totally agree with the review! This dvd is great! But knowing what's gonna happen to John Ritter is pretty sad though I hope the rest of the seasons are released

I love that they have released it!!! Sooo awesome. ESP the bloopers..though i do wish there would be more features but as has been said there will most likely be more on two and 3's dvd sets!! Does anyone by any chance at all know when season 2 is set to be released?

Merry Christmas!

I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle Autumn's rain,
When you awaken in the mornings hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die

RIP 4ever sweet angel. :
