By Movie Mania VINE VOICE on June 16, 2012
Kate and Allie was the breakout series of the 80's. Two childhood friends who are divorced share an apartment in NYC with their children. This examined single moms in the 80's. Episodes covered everything from jobs to raising kids to dating. Brilliant from start to finish.

There are two minor issues witht this box set. First, there are no chapters. If you hit chapter advance it goes to the next episode. On a half hour show, it is not really deadly. The second issue is that when you hit chapter advance, the first time it goes to the beginning of the episode. It really doesn't go back but each episode is on the disc twice. Don't know why but they are? Both of these are minor and I can live with

The worst issue I have is that not all the episodes are original broadcast length (24.5 minutes). I have watched the first two seasons and the following are the episodes that have been edited:

Season 1 Episode 4 The Family Business
Season 1 Episode 5 Dear Diary
Season 2 Episode 14 If She Goes, I Go
Season 2 Episode 19 Dead Cat
Season 2 Episode 20 The Bad Seed
Season 2 Episode 21 Goodbye, Plumber (The best episode of the season!)
Season 3 Episode 22 Late Bloomer
Season 4 All Episodes except Allie's Graduation
Season 5 Episode 5 on

Now I do not blame VEI they can only publish what they are given. And for the original company, you can't blame them as video was in its infancy and they did not think to save the originals.

This is just a warning for the purists, for me something is better than nothing.

It's was enjoyable to watch Kate & Allie after all these years. The sound could be a little louder. But it's an older tv show. There not that many tv shows that show value toward family and kids talk nice to each other and to the parents. If you enjoy the 1980s this is one of the set you should get.

What I love most about Kate and Allie, are the two strong female characters who were developed. Curtin and Saint James are fabulous! Great family series. The stories aren't forced... It's as if you're really watching two friends, supporting each other through the ups and downs, post divorce. The comedy slides in and catches one off guard. Truly a lost art these days. -- It's from the 80's, but continues to be relevant.

I haven't seen this show since it first aired on tv so i am glad that i picked this one up. The quality of this set is good on this release. The sound is mono, but I don't seem to mind. I do recommend this to to any Kate & Allie fan.

I stopped my satellite service back in August 2012 so have been looking for shows that I can't stream right now. And I loved Kate & Allie in the 80's so thought I would get this and add it to my collection!

Kate & Allie is a classic 80's family sitcom that doesn't get the recognition today that it should. K&A stressed the importance of family and friendship, dealt with special issue topics such as homelessness, children of divorce, and adult learning difficulties, and was a sweet and funny show. For most of its run, "Kate & Allie" earned high ratings and also brought in Emmy Awards and nominations. It's certainly worth checking out in this handy collection. No extra features to speak of, but I found the episodes still hold up well. Plus, it's got great scenery of New York City and is like a time capsule of life in the mid to late 80's.

This was one of my favorite series when it first aired and I'm glad to have the entire series on DVD. I almost didn't buy it because of some of the poor reviews, but decided it was worth trying. I'm glad I did. I have no complaints about the quality or content of the DVD's. If you are looking for state of the art remastering then you might be disappointed, but if you just want to experience the laughter and fun of "Kate and Allie" then you will be pleased.

The quality on most shows is great. However, I have noticed a few things...

- On episode 1, season 2, the tape head that "played" the original video... the tape heads were not aligned, causing a muffled... or as what we called, in the video business... "Muddy" audio. As professionals, I am shocked they did not attempt to correct this. Even better EQing or filtering might have made a difference, if the original was not saved. It maybe can remind me of those "full series" versions of DVD's, you find on pirate websites, when the DVD was never really released, officially.

The title opening is cut off, on some episodes. The first note is usually cut off.

With those things being said... the video quality is great.

Otherwise, love the show!
