Editorial Reviews

The third season saw Alice gets its sitcom service down to a science, delivering regular orders of laughter and workplace wisdom weekly while enjoying a regular slot in the top twenty. Series regulars Vic Tayback (Mel), Vera (Beth Howland), Polly Holliday (Flo), and Philip McKeon (Tommy) fit their roles perfectly, while Linda Lavin (Alice) set the comedy temp, whether it be a slow-burn simmer, smoking hot slapstick, or on-the-boil gut-busters. Situations found in this 3-Disc, 24-Episode collection include used “Car Wars” between the girls and Mel, Vera coming down with “A Slight Case of ESP” and “Flo Finds Her Father” (played by F Troop great Forrest Tucker!). Meanwhile Tommy falls in love, Alice falls for a (younger!) theatre director and – most horrifying of all – Mel sells the diner! And keep your eyes peeled for Philip McKeon’s sister Nancy (Facts of Life) playing a young orphan alongside Corey Feldman (Stand by Me).

Ordered this set through WB before it appeared on Amazon, and I'm very happy that Amazon is offering it for sale now as this iconic TV show's 3rd season was one of its most entertaining.

Watching these episodes over 30 years after they originally aired lets you appreciate the things you maybe didn't appreciate in the past. For example, the appearances by Corey Feldman (pre-Goonies) and Nancy McKeon (Jo from The Facts of Life and a myriad of Lifetime movies). Episode highlights include Mel selling the diner, Alice dating Tommy's principal, Vera playing Cinderella, and Flo having her beau-less New Year's Eve.

There are 24 episodes on three discs and, although they are manufactured on demand, they are very good quality. This is definitely the best that I've ever viewed these episodes, and believe me it's worth the purchase price to see them all in their entirety. For the cost of about two movie tickets you get a whole season of Alice, Mel (Stow it!), Flo (Kiss my grits), and Vera at their best. By the end of it you'll be clamoring for the release of Season 4.

Also of note, as of the writing of this review, Alice Doesn't Live Her Anymore (the movie on which the tv series was based) is available on amazon again, I received my copy a few days ago. Looking forward to an Alice marathon!

Highly recommend this iconic tv series! Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome show! July 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched this show every Sunday evening after church with my family. It was Alice and the Jefferson's every Sunday night. The characters all just seemed to play well together. The comedy is original, and ages well for the most part. Obviously, the show was done more than 30 years ago, but for those of us who lived during that time, it's almost like going home again. Even with those moments, I think most people will enjoy the comedy that deals with the problems of every day life faced by working people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like seeing ole friends again! August 25, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This video brings back great memories of the mid to late 70's when life was much simpler but great new happenings were taking place! Never thought much of Alice and her singing but Flo pulled it all together with her down home style and humor. She had a lot of talent and class~!! Thanks for bringing this show to DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars ALICE Is Cooking On All Four Burners September 16, 2013
By Kasey G
Format:DVD
The third season of ALICE consists of 24 episodes that aired Sunday nights on CBS during the 1978-79 TV season. Halfway through the season ALICE was moved to the prestigious 9:00 Sunday time slot and became the CBS anchor for the night, a position it would hold until the fall of 1982.

TV veteran William Asher ("I Love Lucy", "Bewitched") directs most of these installments and it's here that that show starts cooking on all four burners. Some of the earlier episodes had a static feel to them--not so with this bunch. There's a terrific two-parter where Mel sells the diner to a snooty restaurateur (Hans Conried) and the series walks the fine line between comedy and pathos in the terrific season-finale "Flo Finds Her Father" (played by F-TROOP's Forrest Tucker). That episode as well as the one that precedes it on this set ("My Fair Vera") boasts exceptional video quality. In fact, I noticed an improvement on most of these episodes over those on Warner Archive's Season 1 and 2 sets.

The writing just seems sharper at this point in the series, and surprisingly, even though the episodes themselves are self-contained, there is a continuity that was unheard of on sitcoms at this time. "Alice's Decision", "If The Shoe Fits" and "My Fair Vera" all make mention of Alice auditioning for the same talent scout and Vera appearing in a children's theatre production of Cinderella.

If you have been on the fence about springing for any of these M-O-D ALICE sets so far, make this the one to get--you won't be disappointed.

FIVE STARS and bring on Season 4 and FLO: THE COMPLETE SERIES.
