Roseanne: Win the First Two Seasons on DVD!

Roseann DVDWhen Roseanne hit the airwaves in 1988, it was like a breath of fresh air to many TV viewers. Unlike the Huxtables of The Cosby Show or the Keatons of Family Ties, the Conners had real problems that other TV shows weren’t showing at that time. They were a working class family who were just struggling to get by on their limited household income. They weren’t perfect or always nice to each other and many of their problems didn’t get solved in a half hour.

Starring Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman, and Lecy Goranson (later replaced by Sarah Chalke), Roseanne ran for nine seasons and 222 episodes. It was a top-rated show for most of its run. Though many believe that the series went on a bit too long, it’s difficult to argue with the fact that Roseanne helped to change the face of television along the way.

All nine seasons have been released on DVD. Barr and fans expressed their unhappiness when the first season was released using syndicated (edited) episodes. For some reason, Anchor Bay (the DVD company) was unable to obtain permission to release the original broadcasts and fans had to make do. Now, Mill Creek Entertainment has started re-releasing the series on DVD and they’re using the full broadcast versions of the episodes.

The season one set includes all 23 uncut episodes as well as an interview with Goodman, featurettes, a highlight reel, and bloopers. The season two set includes 24 uncut episodes as well as anther Goodman interview, highlights, a featurette, and Goodman’s audition footage. You can purchase them or you can try to win a copy here.

I have watched my DVDs from beginning to end as I’ve missed this show. I just recently bought the Halloween collection that was updated and would LOVE LOVE LOVE to get these new updated seasons.

This was one of my very favorite shows when it was on the air. I’ve been a fan of Roseanne since her stand-up days and I don’t know how anyone could love John Goodman. Put the two together and you’ve got the perfect sitcom.

Good luck to all who are entering!
