Editorial Reviews

On September 22, 1986, a brown, furry, lovable alien named Gordon Shumway crashed his spaceship into the Los Angeles home of the Tan ners (Willie, Kate, Lynn and Brian). They immediately took him into their home and their hearts, and named him ALF, short for Alien Life Form. For four years ALF lived with the Tanners, always elusively avoiding houseguests, chasing the family cat (Lucky), eating everything in sight, and breaking anything of value, but the Tanners always loved the old ALFer. Contains the complete third seaso n.

I have been very tolerant with previous ALF releases. They have all contained syndicated episodes. I didn't care so much about the first season, because I just figured that since the show was no longer on TV, the DVDs were the only way to see the show.

Then the second season came out, again in syndication. I bought it because the show still was not on the air. Then I saw something shocking. During one of the episodes in the second season, there was music substituted, and the episode was shorter than I'd seen on TV Land. That was downright unacceptable.

So now we're at season three. Syndicated episodes again. This time one episode ran for under 19 minutes! I love ALF, and hate to see him get treated this way.

The episodes are all fantastic, and I'm still happy to own the DVDs, but the syndication thing has got to stop.

Unfortunately, this seems to be a recurring pattern with TV show box sets. The first season sets of both Roseanne and The Cosby Show were released in syndicated form. No studio in the world would ever dream of releasing edited movies, so why would so many want to release edited TV series? It's just wrong.

Season four will be out in September, or so I hear. I will probably buy it just to complete the set.

Season 3 sees the show reach its peak as it begins to weave in more complex storylines amidst the comedic situations. With two seasons behind them, Paul Fusco and the actors hit their stride and are completely comfortable with their characters. Thus, there's a naturalness to everyone's performances. Alf is for all intents and purposes real. Also, with Alf's clumsiness and general mayhem more subdued (after being the focus for two seasons), the show is able to actually touch upon far more serious fair without sacrificing the traditional Alf style of humor. Concepts such as losing (or clinging to)moral integrity (My Back Pages), fear of absolesence (Baby Love, Stairway to Heaven), abject loneliness (Alone Again Naturally, Standing in the Shadows of Love), catastrophic expectation (Shake, Rattle and Roll), and even grief and death (funeral for a friend). Even those episodes that aren't as weighty have more complex and intresting elements, eg., "Like an Old Time Movie" which has Alf and Jake constructing a script starring the Tanners that plays out like an old silent movie (and brilliantly so); "Have You Seen My Mother Baby" has Jake confront his mother who he discovers is a thief; "Running Scared" deals with a blackmailer inside the FBI... There's a lot of really good writing going on this season!

ALF was a show that always mixed somewhat childlike (or childish depending on your POV) low-brow humor with heart, but with the third season and the onset of far more somber themes, the show actually transcends its premise and becomes something much more affecting. And as a result, the humor is that much funnier, emerging as it does from human emotions and situations.

Hello all. I'm a big ALF fan and like most of you was disgusted by these releases, cut to shreds syndicates. Good news, Warner released ALF in its entirety, everything is there! I have several original broadcasts on tape and they all match up. As for the set up: the main menus are nill, simple numbers, no titles. The default language is of course in English and can be translated in others. The inserts are in German although, compared to the states' release, there's a description of each episode, ours doesn't have that. I bought the entire series in one box, and it has fur on it, lol. You can buy these individually of course. When I went to the German site (scroll to the bottom and you'll see the link) it offered translation, thank goodness. It took a little over a week for it to get here and that's standard shipping. So, it's worth a trip to German so to speak, I'm so glad I did.

If you're looking at this review, it's because you are obviously interested in purchasing this DVD set. Let me say, if you like ALF, do it! This is the third season in what was a great television show. While the acting by the human actors is kind of hokey, ALF makes the show worth watching. The comedy is a little situational, a little slap stick, and a little punny. It's a show that's safe for the family, and you should laugh out loud at least once every show.

As far as the DVD's go, there is a little left to be desired. I would love to see more extras that pull back the curtain on the creation of ALF and some interviews with the people who starred in the show. The episodes seem to be out of order as Kate is pregnant for a while, then has the baby, then a few episodes later...SHE'S preggers again!!!

Overall though, this is a great purchase and loads of fun.

I love Alf. The discs are better than nothing, I suppose, but that's not much of a compliment. Like others have stated, the episodes are cut (edited) to shreds. The cuts DO change the feel and intended meaning of some of the scenes and even entire episodes. After breaking down and buying the German sets from Amazon.de, I am appalled at just how much has been cut from some of the episodes. Do yourself a favor and just order the European sets and find a code or hack to make your DVD player region-free. Japanese sets are NTSC, German ones are PAL. Be sure your player can display them properly for your TV!
