So Very Funny!
Ms B
It is very sad that Lions Gate released ALF in a syndicated version meaning that there is 4-5 minutes of original programming missing.

This is how I fell in love with ALF.

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.
