  • Let's hear it for the gays.

    My grandmother stopped watching this show [which she loved] when Ellen and the character came out of the closet. That said, Ellen helped to change American television. Without Ellen there would be no Will & Grace and without The Rosie O'Donnell show there would be no The Ellen Degeneres Show.
  • Well, it's funny and I was up early today so I watched it...

    It's really funny,and um...that's it really. You see, I got early this morning for soem reason and for some reason switched over to abc1...and there it was...uh... nothing much else really. Oh yeah... Audrey or whatever the bimbo's name is really irritates me...shes so damn stupid! I hate her so much it's scary
  • Ellen I love you!

    Oh my god! I can\'t get enough of Ellen I love watching ABC1 I never miss a show, I gotta say shes is HOT! What I\'d give just to say hi! I\'ve never seen her talk show because it\'s not broadcast here in the UK unfortunately : ( but I luv her, anyone who is lucky enough to know her I envy! lol! I gotta say again... I love her : )I\'m looking forward to the day her comedy show is brought to England on DVD (hopefully it will) Ellen you\'re amazing, well done with what you\'ve accomplished so far, and good luck with future work.
  • Ellen-tastic

    Ellen, from season one all the way through to season five, has been Ellen-tastic.

    It has not only been funny, but also tackling issues, such as Ellen's lesbianism in the later seasons. It had other themes that built through the seasons, like Paige and Matts relationship, plus, the relationship between Paige and Spence, which turned out to be a great twist.

    I can believe that this show was the height of all comedies back in the 90s, and it deserved to be.

    I do, also think that it would be possible to bring a show like this back, and the makers would profit from it.

    It's a shame this show has ended and it is really great to watch now, even sitting through repeats I've seen five times!
  • A really funny comedy starring Ellen DeGeneres.

    This was a very funy show about a book store owner, the people that worked for her and her friends and family. Ellen DeGeneres stared as Ellen Morgan and Joely Fisher (sister of Star Wars' Princess Laya) was great as Paige Clark. other stars included Maggie Wheeler as Anita, Clea Lewis as Audrey Penney, Jeremy Piven as Spence Kovak, Arye Gross as Adam Green, Holly Fulger as Holly and David Anthony Higgins as Joe Farrell. they really did a nice of of spreading the sories around. After the media hounded Ellen about being gay and they decided to make the character gay, the show was pretty much left for dead. This wasn't because of the acting or writing. It could have gone on for several more years.
  • Ellen is one of my favourite TV shows.

    Ellen is such a fantastic TV show. I was so upset when the show ended. I still continue to watch reruns. My favourite characters on the show were Ellen and Adam. They were both so hilarious! I enjoyed all the characters, they were all so funny. The whole cast are all such talented actors and actresses. I like how the show was so original and different from many other TV shows. Ellen Degeneres is one of my favourite comedians. She is so hilarious and she is such an awesome host, and actress. If you haven't seen an episode of Ellen I really suggest that you watch an episode. You will love it.
  • Many things were insinuated on this show that the public were not really ready for. I think it was really on the cutting edge of showing a lesbian relationship without just saying it. Everyone seemed to be leaning towards that.

    I watched this show when it first came on and thoutht it was a very brave move for the writers to have these storylines at this time. Everyone was so into the AIDS with the gays and lesbians and I didn't think anyone would except a show if this kind. I think it was much more noticable than the connection between other shows that delt with the same relationship between the carachters. I like the funny twists among the stories. I think all the actors were great and some were really having a good time acting the part. Ellen was very funny in her interacting with her girlfriends on the show. She was almost clumbsy at times. I feel they all did a great job. I only wish the show would have lasted a few more seasons. Oh well, It was great while it lasted. I hope I have not offeneded anyone. This is just my opinion.
  • Ellen DeGeneras is great!

    I borrowed the first season from the lcal library (as I did with many other shows) and let's just say that I think this show is amazing. As usual Ellen DeGeneras never ceases to amaze me. Let's say I'm a network, well I'm picking up this show's second season and beyond!! I can't wait until I'm done with the first season and move on to season 2. I wish her 2001-2002 show would have lasted longer. I've never seen it before, but I'm sure it had to have been great as well. The confusing part for me is that it says A&E on the case but yet the show aired on ABC, weird huh?
  • The show started as a show about a woman and her friends living in LA. It became a REALLY different show when Ellen and her character came out of the closet.

    The show was very entertaining and funny. The first couple of season had bust out laughing, funny episodes. It was a great show that all people could watch and find absolutely hilarious. When Ellen decided to come out of the closet and bring her character out as well the show went in a totally different direction. The show had a lot of jokes that pertained mostly to the lesbian community making the show harder for people to relate with. I did understand of lot of the jokes, for obvious reasons, but I noticed when watching with others that they found it less funny and were often confused, asking answer of me. The show was a great show and I loved the episodes after Ellen came out but watching the first couple of seasons the show changed dramatically.
  • Funny and Gay

    Could it get any better? Ellen was funny, heart breaking at times, mundane the next, weird later but mostly it was great comedy from a woman who happened to be gay We all knew it. The veiled references. You didn't have to be built with a lesbian-gaydar to realise that Ellen doesn't wear anything but other than pants was swinging for the other team. It never detracted from the TV show though. In fact it made it funnier in some ways, this is probably when she actually came out I drifted off and started watching other things - but Ellen will always have a gay place in my heart for being the first TV show to mix gayness and humour in such a fabulous way.
  • Pushed the edge

    I do not understand why so many people thought this show was "TOO GAY It was a great show. Also, if it were not for ELLEN, we would never have had WILL & GRACE. Think about it, ELLEN goes off one season, WILL & GRACE is on the next season. Unfortunately, ELLEN had to be the martyr for future shows such as QUEER AS FOLK, WILL & GRACE, and the like. I really hate the gay theme overshadows this series too. This show was as close to LAVERNE & SHIRLEY I can think of since LAVERNE & SHIRLEY went off the air. For example, if you watch the episode titled "The Spa" you will see Ellen and Paige trying to fight while being stuck in the gate. This reminds me of the LAVERNE & SHIRLEY episode where Laverne and Shirley try to run and jump off the coat hook on the wall. I am grateful this show was released on DVD and I watch it often. Anyway, watch for yourself, see how the gay episodes were ahead of their time or just watch for the humor that was this show from the start.
  • JUSTIN BIEBER!!!! <3

    hey ellen i am massive fan of your show and i am a HUGE fan of JUSTIN BIEBER thanks for making the show

  • 20 years of love

    i know im supposed to give a review but i was looking for something that i could put my dream that ellen can help me make come true. i have been in love with my girlfriend for 20 years and it is killing me that i cant have her here with me. im unemployed and she is working but we cant save money for her to come here cause the money that she does make she spends it on our 5 children and her dads household an which she and the kids stay in. i just wish that she could come here much sooner then may of this year. but like i said we dont have a place of our own so she can move here. i need her by myside i have waited long enough for my family to be here with me, if you can get back to me soon thanks chris
  • Cathy Wydner

    I watch your show when ever I can. On Jan. 16, 2012 you called a teacher up and discussed how children in the school did not had anything to eat, many not a place to live. I know this is true, I have had to live on the street at times, but now I have an apartment and SSI. I have done volunteer work at a foodbank. I know other countries have trouble too, but I think America needs to take care of Americans before they give our tax money to other countries.
  • Bieber Fever & Sydney Nycole

    Wonderful Show. My artist Eric Holloway captured Bieber and upcoming artist Sydney Nycole in a Featured Duet??? The cause is for Withelma Ortiz-Macey who overcame forced Drugs & Sex Trafficking. This phenomenal young lady was 2011 Glamour Magazine's Woman of the Year. Congress currently is in discussion of passing the "T" Bill which is about awareness for young girls forced into Sex Trafficking.
