Editorial Reviews

On her way out to Hollywood to become a singer, Alice's car breaks down in Phoenix. With no money and a son to care for, Alice takes a waitress job at Mel's Diner. Here she works with the ornery owner and chef, Mel, the man-hungry whipper-snapper, Flo, and the ditzy Vera. Together they encounter the lovable regulars and other interesting characters passing through. Based on the Oscar-winning movie "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore," this classic television series lasted nine seasons and touched the hearts of all with its witty

Customer Reviews

PLEASE release all of the episodes of all seasons!!

A little promotion would remind everyone how great of a show it was and people would buy it.

You can watch the episodes before you buy the series or the episode itself.

I totally agree that this should be a season set instead of a Best Of. But I post at Sitcoms Online, where the voting for the episodes for the disc took place, and apparently Warner Bros. is unsure if season sets of Alice would sell well or not. So they decided to test the waters by releasing a TV Favorites collection with 6 episodes. If it meets their expectations, they will for certain release seaon sets, but if it doesn't sell well then there is basically no chance.

I understand it's absolutely ridiculous for us to have to buy a Best Of release in order to get season sets, but doing so for Alice would be worth it. That's why I encourage ALL Alice fans to please buy this DVD and not boycott it because it's only a Best of release. This DVD can make or break it's chance for season sets. We have to make this disc a success.

The episodes on the disc are as follows:

08/31/76

Alice Gets a Pass

Alice falls for an ex-football player, who is now an actor.

02/26/77

The Odd Couple

Flo's trailer is stolen, and Alice has the heart to let her stay at her house for a spell. The spell is broken when Alice finds out that Flo is an all-out slob and have unwelcomed visitors (Flo's latest boyfriend, not roaches).

01/22/78

Close Encounters of the Worst Kind

Hostility rages at Mel's after the workers decide to vent their petty grievances.

10/22/78

Block Those Kicks

The diner personnel try to kick their bad habits.

12/02/79

Cabin Fever

Mel, his girlfriend and the waitresses spend the weekend packed like sardines in a fishing cabin.

02/24/80

Flo's Farewell

A wealthy Houston restaurateur offers Flo a job she finds hard to refuse.

I have heard that if this compilation disc doesn't sell enough copies, there will be no season 1 release. Where is the logic in this? People want a complete first season of a show they like on dvd, not a small number of random episodes. I know a first season set of Alice would sell many more units than a compilation. I tend to ignore the Televisions favorites discs altogether, and usually see them in bargain bins at stores because they simply don't sell. If this is the new standard of judging what gets released on dvd, then the market for tv on dvd will wither and die. We need more classic shows on dvd released, and it seems studios are already starting to pull the plug on 1st season releases. 5 stars for Alice, 0 stars for the lame television favorites releases.

i was happy to find this dvd was available, enjoyed every minute of it, wish it were more....would be very anxious to purchase more "alice" dvds if they are produced....

the entire cast is just so lovable, from the owner of the diner, strait thru to the patrons of the diner, absolutely worth buying this dvd since it is all that is available to us at this time.

These six shows are not enough. Please release the full nine years.

I am excited that the "Alice: Best of" is coming to DVD...but I agree...come on Warner Brothers...spend a little money on promotion and release the whole seasons on DVD. A little promotion would remind everyone how great of a show it was and people would buy it. Even Doogie Howser M.D. is out on DVD!!! Give me a break! We need ALICE!

I'll buy it because that's all there is - but it's very disappointing. Come on Warner's - release the whole first season!!

I LOVE THIS SHOW! I USED TO WATCH "ALICE" EVERY SUNDAY NIGHT WHEN I WAS LITTLE. FLO WAS MY FAVORITE CHARACTER BECAUSE SHE WAS SO FUNNY AND OUTRAGOUS. I ALSO LOVED ALL THE OTHER CHARACTERS, INCLUDING ALICE, MEL, VERA, BELLE, JOLENE, TOMMY, AND ALL THE REST. PLEASE PUT ALL THE SEASONS ON DVD!!!! THERE ARE MILLIONS OF FANS THAT WILL BUY IT!!!! ALSO WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE RARELY-SEEN SPINOFF "FLO" STARING POLLY HOLLIDAY.

Alice
Dear Bradley,

I see you purchased a DVD set from tvdvdfavorites.com. I want to buy something from that site, too, but it seems like a mysterious company based on its web site. What is your impression of the company? What is the quality of the DVDs you bought? Where is this company located? ... Read More

Alice on DVD, petition...
C'mon, Warner Bros. please release either the complete series of ALICE starring Linda Lavin on dvd or release the first 6 seasons or as Flo would say "Kiss My Grits."
