Default Roseanne - The Complete First Season (Mill Creek) DVD Review

It has been a little over six years since we first saw "the Domestic Goddess" on DVD from Anchor Bay, but it is no surprise that the set caused a lot of chaos among fans. Why were we given such a shoddy release with edited episodes for one of the most beloved series of the late 80s and early 90s? Fans complained and it even got the attention of Roseanne... and fortunately, by the time the second season was released, fans finally got unedited episodes of the series. But the first season was "left behind."

Until now, that is! Now, Mill Creek has the entire first season available on DVD unedited, and at a much lower price than the original Anchor Bay releases! So you can sit down and enjoy life in the Conner family as Roseanne (Roseanne Barr), Dan (John Goodman), and the kids struggle to make it day-by-day. In a sense, the series was almost like the Good Times of the 80s, though the family was a little more situated financially and a lot more dysfunctional. The series has been dubbed "one of the greatest shows of all time" by TV Guide, and to this day, it maintains a large and loyal base of fans that may have seen the episodes dozens of times (thanks to many, many, many cable reruns) yet still come back for more of Roseanne.

Did it come with the Roseanne: Road Trips bonus disc?

I assume not, or you probably would've mentioned it.

The bonus disc appears to be a Target exclusive with the purchase of the Seasons 1-2 bundle.

Ugh, that sucks.

I looked on Target's online store and I couldn't even find these new sets.

Maybe it can be added that Workin' Overtime is edited.

In the scene where Roseanne and Dan are struggling to wake up, Roseanne calls Jackie up on the phone, asks her to call her back, and then hold the telephone next to Dan's head, in an attempt to make him get out of bed. This part of the scene is edited out on the new Mill Creek dvd set. The episode runs 24:30 on the Australian and the German s1 DVD sets, see this video for comparison: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xs-B1sp6c-c
The edited bit is between 01:55 and 02:30

Well that sucks that there is edits but I guess it's still better than the Anchor Bay sets.

I guess for a 100% complete season 1, you'd need the Mill Creek + the german s1, combined it would be all complete eps including extended pilot, plus those weird different intros in some german eps.
