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 (I'm 38 in 2004, you do the math).

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. I just hope that if the next seasons are released, that they don't use syndication.

The comments by Alf on the DVD menus are pretty funny, and the blooper reel is awesome (What the hell is that? A plane?) 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 over at TVshowsondvd.com - look in their Alf section.

I have most every episode taped from the original NBC airings. I expected to be able to eliminate them from my ever-cluttered collection of stuff with the purchase of this long awaited set. Why Lions Gate chose to use edited syndication episodes completely baffles the imagination. Perhaps they plan on later releasing a "Deluxe Edition" so that the consumer will get hit twice to pay for the same product. The $40 list price should have more than adequately covered licensing the rights to the full episodes, but I guess there's no end to corporate greed.

I am stunned by the rave reviews of the Extras: 1) a short gag reel of which only about 15% is funny, 2) some brief trivia screens which is mostly made up of obvious facts that any fan of the show already knows (like A.L.F. stands for Alien Life Form, for example), and 3) credits screens - credits for the DVD authoring is now considered a bonus extra?!?! Sheesh! Would have made better sense to have included some of the best ALF bits from Hollywood Squares, or even included some of the many commercials ALF has appeared in over the years. Or interviews with the cast reflecting on being a part of the show.

The omission of a feature to play all of the episodes on a disc is simply appalling. Interactive is nice, but can you imagine an audio CD in which you have to select each song separately? Adding this feature would have taken the authors mere minutes to code. I just don't get it.

Rather than deluxe packaging, like you get with most TV series box sets, a clamshell case crams in the four discs in a clunky, overlapping layout. No book, either, just a single sheet listing the discs and episodes, and a slipcover for the case. I've seen public domain sets packaged better.

I'd love to give the DVD set a good review, as the show is funny. However, in an outrageous and unacceptable move, the studio has released EDITED, CUT versions of the series, made for syndication. When I go out and BUY a TV series on DVD, I do not expect edited junk, I can see that on cable stations.

BOO! HISS! AVOID THIS DVD! Write the studio and tell them you will not sit still for this. Save your money and record the edited versions from TV reruns yourself. Glad I have the uncut network versions from NBC.

Let me just add my voice to the outcry of disappointment over the release of the edited, syndicated versions of the episodes rather than the originals. Don't they know that people who buy DVDs want and expect the definitive, uncut version? This is just unacceptable! I implore Lions Gate (or whoever else might have the ability to do so) to re-release the season one set with the original versions, and not to use that horrible, overlapping disc configuration in the case. What a bad idea!! Please... DO THE RIGHT THING AND RE-ISSUE!!!

Having seen the original 24-25 minute UNCUT episodes it is depressing to watch these mutilated episodes (some are missing 7 minutes). Alf-fans should waite for the UK-release instead of this garbage.

Love the show, but hate this DVD set. I can only hope Lion's Gate revisits this show on HD-DVD and does it right, with UNCUT episodes. Until I get whole episodes, I won't buy them.

"ALF" is an excellent television show, and its first season (which aired in 1986-87) was probably its best. The show takes a standard family sitcom premise and adds its delightfully loony twist: the Tanners, a typical American household, get an indefinite houseguest in the form of a furry, 3-foot creature from another planet. The planet is Melmac, and the alien is ALF, a sarcastic, and lovable little guy. The sitcom delivered interesting plots and no shortage of laughs, and it never needed to add objectional material, allowing it to excel at entertaining the whole family.

So, after all these years of the DVD industry thriving, and television sets being quite the hit, my dream of "ALF" on DVD in season sets finally has come true. I'd anticipated the release of this first season DVD set like few others, and when the day arrived, I made my trek to the store with excitement.

First, the good news. All twenty-five episodes from the wonderful debut season of the show are presented here, with commendable picture and sound quality, and chapter stops. The menus are hosted by ALF himself and are clever, easy to navigate, and remarkably amusing. There's even a few genuinely interesting bonus features on Disc 4, in the way of a Gag Reel, Trivia Facts, and an alternate pilot.

The bad news is, as a few other reviews have mentioned by now, is that the show is not presented in its original form. I thought that the 21-minute running times were a bit on the slight side, and it turns out that Lions Gate has released syndication edits of episodes, lopping off several minutes from each show. Why this decision was made, I have no idea. It's a terrible choice, and one which taints an otherwise delightful release.
