Editorial Reviews

As the second season of the break-out hit Alice graced the nation’s airwaves, Mel’s Diner soon became the nation’s dining destination of choice. Thanks to its hearty combination of down-home eccentrics, sweet sentiment, blue-collar ethos, and the spice of edgy topicality, Alice proved a dish the nation could not resist. With the central flavorings of Alice (Linda Lavin), Flo (Polly Holliday), and Vera (Beth Howland) rooting the comedy, and Mel (Vic Tayback) and Tommy (Philip McKeon) on hand to balance the distaff waitstaff with curmudgeonly charm and youthful enthusiasm, Alice was cooking with gas and ready to serve up some sit-com gold. George Burns, Jerry Reed, Desi Arnaz are among those who get served in season 2, as the staff faces working holidays, dispossessed natives, divine stars, and the specter of Mel’s fiftieth in this 3-Disc, 24-Episode collection.

Format: DVD
I ordered my copy of ALICE: The Complete Second Season as soon as it was announced on the Warner Archive site a few weeks ago to be sure I got pressed discs (instead of DVD-Rs) just like I did for Alice: The Complete First Season. The price was a few dollars cheaper than here too and the cover art and discs follow the same design as the first set--no complaints whatsoever. (**NOTE** The limited-run of pressed discs for Season One has long since sold out and only DVD-Rs are now available--you MUST order early!).

During its' second season on CBS during 1977-78, ALICE was still finding its' footing with a revolving door of producers, writers and directors. Several of the installments this season seem somewhat static and flat compared to Season 1 (see "The Indian Taker" or "The Reporter"). Ironically, this is the year the show jumped into the Top Ten finishing at #8 among all prime-time series for the 1977-78 season, no doubt helped by its' cozy new Sunday-night timeslot following "All in the Family" which was enjoying one of its most brilliant seasons ever. The ALICE cast are still delivering on all counts, but the writing and direction lets them down a little. Despite this, ALICE is still ten times better than any of the current sitcoms and there are indeed some series highlights this season.

I've been waiting a long time for this 2nd season DVD to come out! "Alice" is one of those genuinely funny comedies where all the characters work well together, are good friends, share everything, and just blend their lives together in a positive way. Sure it was a sitcom, but after all, and especially moreso in today's world - aren't all those show qualities really what we should be watching and enjoying as we try to escape the madness of the "real" world? Sometimes it's good to just sit down, watch some simple problems resolve themselves within less than a 1/2 hour, watch and listen to some laugh-out-loud comedic lines that leave us with a smile. It feels good. And if you are one of those that enjoyed such programming in the 70s and 80s, Alice will not disappoint you.

This series is also great in "going down memory lane" - seeing things like pay phones being used and definitely the outfits being worn, will also bring a nostalgic smile to your face!

I'm definitely enjoying Season 2 of "Alice" and hope that the next season doesn't take quite so long in coming out!

I've always loved this TV sitcom. I always get a barrel of laughs watching "Alice". I like her singing on the show and her relationship with her son. I like it that the show also deals with serious issues. The show had some great guest stars as well. I love this show from the opening theme song to the ending credits when Linda Lavin "scats" along with the music. It's one of the best sitcoms ever made and thank goodness, it's on DVD so it can be seen over and over again. I already have Seasons One, Two and Three and I intend to get more when they come on the market.

I first watched season 1, and then eagerly opened season 2 of Alice. I couldn't turn it off, and I watched pretty much the entire season in 2 days. The second season is probably the best, and I have fond memories of many of these episodes from watching them during summer vacation as a kid. I particularly loved Florence of Arabia! When I lived in Phoenix going to college, I was extremely homesick and watched Alice every morning during my break. The characters always felt like family to me, and I still feel like that today. Corny I know, but this is just a terrific show! I highly recommend it and hope they will put out more seasons soon.

Thank you Amazon for bringing the Alice DVDs to market. The second season of Alice is fun to watch. The family and I enjoy every episode. With Mel, Vera, Flo and Alice, you can't go wrong. Keep the Alice Season Episodes coming.

I ordered seasons one through three of Alice (I haven't purchased season 4 yet), and am just finishing season one, as I compose this. So far, the MOD (made on demand) discs appear to be just as good as standard DVD's that I've traditionally limited myself to (although there was a brief hiccup on disc 1 of season 1.. but to be fair, I've occasionally seen a brief hiccup or two on many standard DVD's I own, so who knows...)

Thus far however, I'm very satisfied with the image and audio quality. For playback, I use an inexpensive Magnavox DVD player, which upconverts standard DVDs to near HD quality, to my HD television. Long story short, it's great to be able to view "Alice" all over again after not having seen it for more years than I care to count, lol..

Honestly, I find "Alice" just as funny now as I remember it to have been.. As always, shipping from Amazon was quick and painless, so I'm eager to finishing viewing all three seasons in the next day or so. I'm not as reluctant (as I initially was), in ordering MOD discs, because these discs appear to be as good as any other DVD I have. My first purchase of a MOD DVD (just recently), was for the original Angels in the Outfield (with Janet Leigh and Paul Douglas), and I was pleasantly surprised with it's quality as well.

What do you play it on
You need a player that specifies that it will play DVD-R discs. Most DVD and Blu-ray players from the last 5-7 years are made to play DVD-R media. I'm guessing your mom's player is older than that? Pick out a player and then look at the owner's manual online to see that is specifies what discs... Read More
