Beware...EDITED/CUT episodes !!!

"It is getting ridiculous how often studios are released EDITED, CUT versions of TV shows instead of the full versions as seen on network TV. Why pay money for edited content? Each show is cut by 2 minutes or so, so you miss about 10% of the episode. If you think it isn't a big deal, feel free to send me 10% of your paycheck each week....AVOID this set, write a polite letter to the studio telling them why you won't buy it and maybe they'll get the message that consumers want the full version on DVD, not edited junk. If you taped these off the original ABC airing, hold on to the the tapes!
Sorry to say THE COSBY SHOW DVD is the same situation, as is the first season of THAT'S MY MAMA."

"Count me among the "Roseanne" fans who had this DVD box set pre-ordered until I heard about the edited content. (According to some of the newspaper sources I've seen, these episodes are edited down even farther than the syndicated versions shown daily on TV.)
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."
COMPLETE should mean COMPLETE!

"I was a huge fan of Roseanne when it aired on ABC. I rolled videotape from the start of the very first show and collected every episode from beginning to end, minus commercials. I cannot understand charging upwards of thirty or forty dollars for what are NOT the complete episodes. If you watch the DVDs of "M*A*S*H" and "Friends" and then watch the same shows on TBS and Hallmark, there's quite a bit missing in those syndicated airings....some of it in the case of those "M*A*S*H" shows is quite noticeable. I agree with the folks who've gone ahead and recorded the syndicated shows from Nick at Nite or wherever. The fans of "Roseanne" deserve to have the DVDs of the complete original airings of the show they made such a huge hit, and without the annoying banners (very distracting on all those channels) and logos in the corner through the entire shows. I loved this show...but unless Carsey-Werner allows the re-release of the DVDs with truly complete episodes, I've got the shows complete and uncut on VHS tapes from beginning to end. Anyone who thinks we're whining about this and thinks we're not true fans of the show is seeling themselves short. Funny show? Absolutely! A good deal on DVD in this version? Absolutely NOT!"
