"Jesse" was cancelled in 2000 .  Why are you creating a webpage after the show went off the air?

The truth of the matter is that I didn't watch “Jesse” when it first aired.   I was channel-surfing one day, caught the end of "Working", and then watched a show called "Jesse".  I instantly liked it.  A few episodes later, I started thinking about the show some more, and looked it up on the Internet.  Finding pathetically few sites devoted to this great show, I began planning one of my own.  And I also started taping Jesse everyday.

Kurt is in the Season One episode 'Goober Up The Nose' and now I'm confused.  Explain.

Darryl Therise appeared in 'Goober Up The Nose' as Kurt, no last name was given. He played the part the same way, pretty much evil.  However, he looked somewhat different, he had longer sideburns and his hair was cut differently.

I just started watching the second season, and I'm confused.  What happened to Jesse's family?

During the hiatus between seasons, the format of the show was changed, and we skipped four months.  The characters of John Sr., Junior, and Darren were discarded, as well as the bar.  The premise of the show shifted more towards Jesse as a nurse, and two new characters were added, Danny Kozak and Kurt Bemis.

Why was “Jesse” cancelled?

"Jesse" was cancelled because "...[it] bled viewership from [its] lead-ins (Friends and Frasier) and lacked potential to improve."  The later, of course, is completely wrong.   "Jesse" had incredible potential, and if given the chance, would have improved dramatically, if it even needed to be improved at all.  Granted, during the second season, ratings slid, but when it was cancelled, "Jesse" was still one of the Top Twenty shows, according to Nielson Media Research.  This just goes to show you what kind of people NBC has working for it.  Canceling a hit show in order to keep another, older, hit show with the same number of viewers.  Terrible, terrible.

Where can I find episodes of "Jesse" on VHS or DVD/VCD?

You can't, officially.  No "Jesse" episodes have ever been officially released on VHS or DVD.  However, occasionally someone will try and sell a set they've taped off the TV, whether during the original run or from repeats.  Sometimes these sets pop up on eBay.  Tape collectors also may have some or all the episodes available for trade, with no rights given or implied.  If you search around, odds are you can find some episodes.
