Product Description

Max Wright, Anne Schedeen. The delightful sitcom series about a short, furry alien who happens to eat cats returns for this second hit season. Includes Working My Way Back to You," Somewhere Over the Rerun," We Are Family," Varsity Drag" and 22 more. 4 DVDs. 1986-87/color/12 hrs/NR/fullscreen.

Amazon.com

A well-crafted family comedy about a fuzzy space alien who crash lands into the lives of the Tanner family, Alf Season Two spoons up a second serving of 26 episodes as deliciously witty as the first. The diminutive, sardonic Alien Life Form from planet Melmac (voiced by Paul Fusco) becomes an integral (and unabashed) part of the Tanner family in the sitcom's second season of its four-year run (1986-1990), with many of the storylines maximizing Alf's impish onstage chemistry with Willie (Max Wright). Alf is more outspoken this year and viewers will relish the nostalgic romps through his Alien Relocation Program, Melmacian hiccups, and brief stint in a monastery. Alf hosts the David Letterman show, rides the rails with "Boxcar Willie," recites his own rendition of "Born Free," and protests his house arrest on "Alfcatraz." The storylines continue to be fresh thanks to a team of seasoned writers, several of whom are new to the show this season. Alf remains a gem in the '80s lineup of family sitcoms by striking a near-perfect chord between kid-friendly kitsch and subtle adult humor. Alf never stoops to vulgarity; rather, the program remains a wacky, eclectic view of humanity through the eyes of an alien—who takes neither life form very seriously. Don't miss the program's highlight, "Ballad of Gilligan's Island," when Alf builds a lagoon in his backyard, morphs to Gilligan's Island, and gets a reality check on the definition of "fun," with cameos by the renowned cast of Bob Denver, Alan Hale, Russell Johnson, and Dawn Wells. The four-disc set includes two animated episodes. (All ages) --Lynn Gibson

These are syndicated cut to shreds versions of a classic show. Worse than the first syndicated cuts that were broadcast. Entire scenes cut where Alf sings songs that the cheapo Lions Gate may have to pay rights for. This is what keeps video pirates in business.

I taped all of the original ALF episodes when they all originally aired. I still have them all and believe me if you could see what I have Vs these DVD Sets you would not go near them for free. There are major sequences missing that absolutely ruin all of the episodes on DVD. This includes Major plot lines extremely funny moments and absolutely very necessary dialog. Some episodes on the ALF Season 1 Syndicated DVD version had cuts as long as 5 minutes removed. Considering that they are only 24 minutes in Length, you are missing almost 1/4 of the episode. I cannot believe that they would issue out chopped up Syndicated versions again with Season 2. I returned my Season 1 DVD the same day I bought it. I personally showed the Store Manager the DVD version of an ALF Episode and my original Taped version of that same episode and she was totally appalled. That's the thing that really upsets me the Most. Good people who really want these and are going to buy them have no idea what they are really missing. Just imagine your favorite film of 2 hours length having 20 minutes cut out of it when you bought on DVD. That's exactly what's happening here. These DVD should never have been released in this syndicated form.Your are not just missing some DVD extra's, You are missing the whole Show.

If you've read the other reviews, you'll already know that the episodes on this disc are syndicated versions, not the original NBC ones. That's a shame, as my wife and I watched the show since Day 1.

It is nice to have them on DVD. Would it have been better to have the original uncut ones? Hell yeah. But I'll take this.

The comments by Alf on the DVD menus are pretty funny, and the blooper reel is awesome. As a long time Alf fan, I'm glad to see these on DVD, but my excitement is tinged with disappointment over them being edited.

The DVD intros recorded by Alf are quite funny. The bit about more FBI warnings made me laugh out loud, as did some of the blooper reel - to hear Alf (mildly) swear made me and my wife really laugh out loud). The syndicated issue aside, the show is STILL damn funny - there's no getting around that issue. :)

NOTE: There's a statement from Lion's Gate on why they have the syndicated versions over the originals online at tvshowsondvd dot com - look in their Alf section.

NOTE 2: This is almost the exact same review I wrote for Series 1 of Alf on DVD. Since Lion's Gate showed no effort in putting the original versions on DVD, I don't think I need to write something different for my S2 review over my S1 review.

I have been a fan of ALF from the start. ALF desserves a lot more respect than what he is getting from Lion's Gate. The excuse they give about the original air masters just does not wash considering the quality of the episodes presented on the DVD release of The Alf Files by another company that used the air masters.

Other TV shows from earlier times are being released in their complete forms. Why can't Lion's Gate do the same?

I will not buy this set and urge others to do the same and maybe, just maybe, Lion's Gate will get the message.

Yesterday in the mail I received my ALF Season 2 DVD, and I was disappointed. First epsiode I watched was "Night Train", and the scene with ALF and Willie singing "City of New Orleans" was deleted. Then I watched "Oh, Pretty Woman" and a very funny ALF impersonation of Dianna Ross singing "Stop, In the Name of Love" was gone. If you havn't found a pattern here, Lions Gate was too cheap to pay song rights. You would not honestly release a movie with parts missing, TV should be given the same consideration. NBC, Paul Fusco, or someone should have complete episodes, they should sell those and not these chopped up sindications. Lions Gate, be honest!!!

This season will contain the cut versions so once again we will be missing 3-7 minutes of eatch episode.

Not releasing the original 24-25 minutes episodes Lionsgate are showing disrespect for ALF, american culture and last but not least: Their customers!

Only a Lionsgate-employée or a person who has never seen the original versions would even consider to give this garbage more than 2 stars.
Giving it 5 stars must be some kind of a joke! Why would anyone in their right mind give this message to Lionsgate: "We are satisfied with cut episodes - don't mind us, just carry on making cheap releases and make a lot of money"

Wait for the UK-release and don't let yourself be fooled by people with hidden motives or no quality-sense!

What can I say? We love ALF. We are kind of conservative and I let my 10 and 12 year old watch it. There are only a couple of comments in the first two seasons that may be offensive to the more conservative but these comments go right over my kids' heads as they did on me when I was a kid in the 80s. The rest of it the find funny and go around quoting.
