I received this set yesterday and I'm already on the second disc. I forgot how much I LOVE THIS SHOW!

The dvd picture and sound quality is excellent, and is far superior to the versions they used to air on cable. Also, these are the uncut, 25 minute versions of each episode. These complete versions of the episodes haven't aired on TV in over 20 years!

It's unfortunate that nobody under 30 has ever heard of this fun show. I hope they release the remaining 8 seasons soon. I'm having a wonderful time watching these shows again- it's like visiting old friends I haven't seen in many years.

This show, if I remember, was a huge hit when it was on tv. Why did it take this long to put on DVD? I bought it and, for the most part, the picture and sound are great for a 36 year old tv show. There are no episode synopsis of any kind anywhere on here and it's the definition of 'bare bones' dvd. This show is hillarious and I want to get the other seasons but how long will that take.... another 10 years(?!). Worth the price(which seems to be double compared to most tv show dvds you can buy these days).

Alice is a classic late 70s TV Show that brings back so many memories to me. Rarely, would I miss an episode growing up. Alice was part of the collection of shows that I would say was "Must Watch TV". The characters were played off eachother perfectly. Flo with her 'kiss my grits' attitude was the perfect counter to Mel's brash nature; poor Vera always tried so hard to just get thru the day without a catastrophe; and Alice was the glue that brought them all together along with the zaniest customers ever to set foot into Mel's Diner.

The early seasons were the best in my opinion. Like other shows of the time (One Day at a Time, etc), comedy was a wonderful vehicle for presenting complex & controversal topics on occassion. Alice and the gang are presented life's ups and downs, introduction to alternate lifestyles, shady characters, complex relationships, romance, heartbreak, and all that makes life interesting. Alice was topical, yet timeless. Very rarely are there cases where an episode is dated, and in such cases, the timeless humor and message overcomes any aspect of it being dated.

Received my dvds today. One of the best comedies in the 70's. An awesome dvd with every episode unedited. I can't wait for season 2. This is a must have!

I purchased this item and it came in damaged. After a closer inspection I found this item to consist of bootleg quality materials and production. After doing some investigation I found that Amazon is now selling burned DVD-Rs of titles such as this. I was completely unaware that this was even happening.

As a customer who has made this site my go-to-one-stop-shopping site, I am highly disappointed that they would try to pass off a flea market quality DVD set to me. Please note that there is a warning in the product description that states that these are DVD-Rs. However, I was unaware that these even existed. From a customer that has ordered hundreds of DVDs, I have never encountered this before.

UPDATE: After doing some research into Warner Brothers official site, I found that these disks are made On Demand even on their site. I am not sure if they are factory pressed or if they are DVD-R quality as they are not open at the time of this review. If they are DVD-R then I will be highly disappointed in a company as big as Warner Brothers being this lazy as to releasing products of this low quality. It's nice to have the shows available to purchase, but treat the customer with a bit more respect by not making them feel like they purchased something from the back of someone's truck in a shady parking lot.

I'm so happy that a full season of Alice is now out. I bought the DVD 'tester' of 6 episodes a couple of years ago and nearly wore it out! I love the chemistry between the cast, even after Polly Holliday left. How can you go wrong with a show that casts Martha Raye as the mother to Vic Tayback?

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE - ESPECIALLY SOMEONE WHO LOVED WATCHING AND LAUGHING WITH ALICE, FLO, MEL AND VERA. If you just want a DVD case with a picture of the cast - buy it. If you want to actually watch the show - forget it.

I loved the show Alice and was really happy when a complete season finally came out on DVD. I pre-ordered ASAP. Unfortunately, the production quality was the worst I have ever encountered. The NEW set arrived with SCRATCHES on all three disks - even though it was new. I did not notice until the first disk started skipping with the third episode. Contacted Amazon. Amazon acted quickly and sent out a NEW replacement set. All of the disks in the replacement set also arrived SCRATCHED and DAMAGED.

I have over 500 seasons of different TV shows and HAVE NEVER ENCOUNTERED SUCH BAD QUALITY. The cast, writers, and creators of Alice deserve better as do the fans. I contacted the manufacturer to let them know of the problem and found out they could care less. Hopefully if more seasons or, better yet, a complete series are released they will be unscratched and something that can actually be watched. By the way,as Flo would say, the manufacturer can "KISS MY GRITS!!!!!!!"
