  • Ellen DeGeneras is great!

    9.7
    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?
  • Funny and Gay

    8.8
    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.
  • 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.
  • Pushed the edge

    9.9
    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.
  • #1 Justin Beiber Fans (:

    Hi Ellen, Its Stephanie Argumedo and Stephanie Marroquin from Modesto California, we have been bestfriends since the sixth grade, now we are juniors in highschool, we both have one wish and thats to be able to go to one of your shows and meet Justin Beiber. We have been wanting to go to one of his concerts and be backstage with him, but our families are going through economy problems and dont have the money to take us. Us as bestfriends do pretty much everything together and we would love if you can make our dream come true. We are IN LOVE with Justin AND your show, we watch it everyday. Your show is so hilarious and we would love to enjoy atleast one show with you in person, and play our favorite game, which is "Know Or Go" . We really want to meet Justin as i have said it a few times, i know your really good friends with him and would be able to make our dream come true. We would also love to dance with you at the beginning of your show. Hopefully you can make this real and we can be on your show. If you want to get a hold of us you can e-mail me (stephanie argumedo) at . Thanks, and hopefully we will see you soon. (:
  • Why Are There All These Letters to Ellen in the Reviews section instead of Reviews of this series?

    5.0
    I don't know why people are writing to Ellen in the reviews section, but I'm going to actually talk about the series.



    Ellen was one of the most retooled series ever made, I think, and every change made the show worse. It was very funny in its first year, when it was called These Friends of Mine. Then some perfectly good cast members were swapped out, the premise changed, it became less ensemble style and more star driven, and it was weaker. When Arye Gross was subsequently swapped out for a grating Jeremy Piven, the show started getting very bad.



    When Ellen came out as gay, my mom complained that it ruined the show, but for me, the show was already bad, and her coming out was just more poorly conceived retooling that made the show markedly worse. Although the actual coming out show was brilliant, the best episode of the series, and made me briefly believe that the series had finally turned around. But it hadn't, it just kept getting worse.



    Fortunately Ellen moved on to her talk show host role, which fits her like a glove, so it's a story with a happy ending. But I wish they'd kept doing These Friends of Mine; that was a really good show.

    I have always looked up to you for your clean humor but lately it is turning blue. I watch you on YouTube and this evening I saw references to "fresh sperm", "porn & beans," and "pubic" funds. A bar of soap is being mailed to under separate cover! Thanks for your attention to my comments.

    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.

    I'm Daiana Liz Maldonado I'm 19 years old and I'm from Puerto Rico, I really love your show, <3 I would like to see your show live, not on TV or the internet. I would love to know how it feels to be actually on the show and to see all the artists. I do not speak english perfectly, but I'll try to improve it. Someday, God willing, I'll go to your show. :)
  • Thanks for making a very special lady with dementia laugh for the first time

    7.5
    I have a very special family member that was always a very hard worker, a single Mom of one son, very social, and very family oriented. Unfortunately she began having memory issues. It was learned she had dementia that became so severe she is now in a nursing facility. Though, she recognizes me, she doesn't remember my name, but that's okay, I have come to accept that and only want to bring her as much happiness under the circumstances. I make her a home cooked meal and try to time it to arrive about one hour before your show begins. The first time I didn't know what to expect for her attention span isn't what is was. Though, at first it began with smiling, which was so encouraging to see her show emotion. So, I have made it a daily "Must do" to always insure she is in front of her TV when your show is on. That small smile has turned into an occasional laughter, which Ellen, it's priceless. For someone so very dear to me to see her show emotion at your jokes is truly so very appreciated. Blessings, Patty

    i apologize for taking up room for someone eles...... but the main reason that i've hoped so hard for my wife and is because (and she won't admit this) but the doctor over ten yrs ago told me if she didn't have a certain operation for her eyes (within a certain amount of time) she would gradually go blind. it could be all at once or a little at a time. i honoestly don't know how she passes her eye test to drive, of which she dose not drive at night., i want her to be able to enjoy the beach, the house she's always wanted, and not have to take care of everybody eles, all the time. she's a wonderful woman, amazing, a God send to anyone. im extremely blessed that God allowed her to be mine. to honor her would be the best gift i could ever imagine presenting her to the world. she's soooooo worth it. thanks yjgma@aol.com

  • A well deserving Daughter

    9.5
    I watch your show a lot you are the most real talk show host ever!!!! The other day I was watching and there was a ad that said do you know anyone who could use a car. My daughter who is a 20 year old college student just had hers break down and needs one. She is a junior in college and for the last two years has held a 4.0 gpa. She came home for the summer and is working three jobs. I would really like to help her more but her stepfather and I live check to check. Her father is on disability for bipolar/schizophrenia she is there for him more then he is for of things that have happened in her fathers life she has decided to go to school to become a speech therapist. So schooling will be another five years. She is such a deserving daughter and a very giving and deserving person I am so proud of the person she has become. A car would be awesome or her to get to her jobs and school. Thank you from a very proud mother!!!!!!!!!
