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.Read more ›
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!
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.
Update: I have since purchased season 4, enjoying it as much as I did the previous 3 seasons. And again, this MOD disc plays just fine. I think other positive reviews of season 4 were spot on, so all I will add here is that season 4 is just as enjoyable. Hopefully, additional seasons will follow.

Me and my siblings watched reruns in the 80's. I love this show. Especially Flo but every character is awesome. 70's TV is the best.Published 5 days ago by swankhood

|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
