As the second season of the break-out hit Alice graced the nation’s airwaves, Mel’s Diner soon became the nation’s dining destination of choice. Thanks to its hearty combination of down-home eccentrics, sweet sentiment, blue-collar ethos, and the spice of edgy topicality, Alice proved a dish the nation could not resist. With the central flavorings of Alice (Linda Lavin), Flo (Polly Holliday), and Vera (Beth Howland) rooting the comedy, and Mel (Vic Tayback) and Tommy (Philip McKeon) on hand to balance the distaff waitstaff with curmudgeonly charm and youthful enthusiasm, Alice was cooking with gas and ready to serve up some sit-com gold. George Burns, Jerry Reed, Desi Arnaz are among those who get served in season 2, as the staff faces working holidays, dispossessed natives, divine stars, and the specter of Mel’s fiftieth in this 3-Disc, 24-Episode collection.

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.
