    I am surprised "Satan, Darling" isn't on the set.

    As big a fan of "Roseanne" that I am, I'm going to pass on this set. By next year (presumably), we'll have all of these episodes anyway with the season sets. Hell, we already have a few of them. I do admit however that it's a cool idea to bundle all of the Halloween eps together. They were definitely some of the show's craziest. I just have no interest in buying it when I'll own all of those episodes soon enough anyway.

    Will there be extras specific to this set?

    I know AB put a commentary for 'Trick Me Up, Trick Me Down' on Season 4, so if it is just that repackaged then I'll pass.

    That wasn't a Halloween episode, it was a spoof on "Rosemary's Baby," which is why it's not on the set.

    Nice to see a 5.1 surround sound track - I don't know why the season sets are in 2.0 then?

    While that's true, the math equation is the big difference here:

    DVD Seasons 1-5 = $120
    Halloween DVD = $12

    [​IMG] this release obviously isn't marketed to those who are buying the series.

    I actually think it's cool to have all of the halloween eps. on one disc. Makes doing a marathon easier.

    What will the cd contain though?

    The Halloween eps were always very clever. If this is successful they might want to consider a comp disc of the Christmas & T'giving eps as those were usually quite good. Anyone remember Rosey & Jackie covering Nana Mary with Christmas lights when she felt asleep at the diner ? Classic.

    I read somewhere (maybe it was tvshowsondvd) that there will be a different commentary track on one of the episodes..

    Damn you, Dave Mack. I am an avid Roseanne fan, and have bought every set pretty much the day of its release (going to buy all 9 even though I'm in the majority that thought very little of s9). I had convinced myself that for sure I could save a few bucks and not have to buy this one, and now you've gone and made me question my resolve - a marathon of these does sound fun!!!

    I think if anything, a Thanksgiving set next would make the most sense, but given that we just got S4 now in July, that S5 should be out sometime in the fall...I would hope they would not let one of these collection sets interfere with the releases of the main series

    Season 5 is coming on Sept 12.

    At this rate, I would expect season 6 by December, 7 by March/April 2007, 8 May/June and the final season August-Oct. That's really great. I'm excited. [​IMG]

    If only all shows were done so efficiently as Roseanne has been done....it may not be heavy on extras, but they are more interesting than most, mostly because the cast is so colorful (Roseanne, Laurie and John anyways - though I don't remember any interviews with John). And the interviews with the kids are interesting, mostly because they talk about Roseanne and what it was like to work with her! Sort of a strange question, and I don't mean any disrespect by it, but was the actress who played Becky I in some sort of an accident/surgery that was in the news? I couldn't help but wonder, in the season 4 extras, if something had happened, because she seemed like she was having trouble moving the one side of her face. Just curious is all, I'll remove this question if anyone feels it's disrespectful to bring up here.

    Anyways, I have a feeling that the efficiency and speediness of these releases, judging by the way the extras & interviews depict Roseanne's 'active' role in the show's production and the way she got things done on set (cutting off Becky's hair in spite of the producers...that's hilarious), can in no small way be attributed to Roseanne's involvement in them.

    It seems sort of unlikely, though, doesn't it? I doubt it would sell really well, just the hardcore fans. Can't imagine it would be done until at least after season 9, to 'milk' the product, kind of like Friends did with those themed collections. Is there a way to look up DVD sales, that is understandable to the common man? Or that indicates which met expectations and which didn't type of thing?

    They should do some sort of promotion like, send in the UPC tabs from all 9 seasons to show you bought them, and they would send you a fixed copy of season 1 unabridged. [​IMG] Dare to dream.... but maybe it would spur sales! hehe

    Well, I don't think the Friends DVDs were to milk it - they were for people who didn't want full sets, I have full sets and didn't buy them - had they had unique extras I probably would have given in and bought them.

    It would be great if they replaced them, but it seems highly unlikely.

    isn't a "best of" Friends set pointless considering the show was technically a soap opera? Much like how hour-long shows like Veronica Mars, Lost and Angel/Buffy couldn't really suffice with "best of" sets considering the episodes are too important and must be seen as a cohesive whole and in order, shouldn't the same apply with Friends? Now Seinfeld I think would be great with a "best of" set down the road after the sets are finished (even tho I'll gladly buy the sets thank you very much), but Friends is way too arc-driven that a best of set to a Friends virgin would confuse
