4.0 out of 5 stars Great story, horrible sound, 28 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just want to add to the excellent previous reviews that I think this 1981 production is a great story and that both Robert Hardy and Sian Phillips works fine in their respective roles. However, the sound is not very well recorded - room acoustics are often annoying in the dialogue reproduction, and Robert Hardy has an unnecessarily indistinct pronunciation. The DVD is presumably copied from an inferior VHS copy. It is therefore unfortunate that subtitles are not provided, and a shame that this is not informed at the appropriate place in the product details provided by Amazon.

Not so important, but extremely annoying, is the recorded vignette music which comes through severely distorted and loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple stories, but charming couple, 17 April 2009
For those who saw this series on TV, it is nice to look at this charmimng couple and their friends. Stephanie and Robert are a cute couple and the stories are simple good entertainment. A must for old friends though. The set is nicely packed and the quality first rate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative book, 21 Feb. 2009
Brian Long, staying in Japan, has added some information which most other authors not easily come by, mostly related to the Japanese situation. He has gathered pictures to illustrate his book from local sources as well as having included his own pictures of cameras. Some interesting advertising material is also included.

The book has a nice layout and is good reading, including a few advices on camera collecting, camera storage, and camera caretaking in general.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great show, but the order of the episodes is mixed up, 18 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would like mention that the order of the episodes on this DVD set (Season 3) are really mixed up. This is especially annoying since the baby "Eric" is switched back and forth between embryo and newborn.

By the way; two episodes on this DVD set (Season 3), no.25 "Mind games" and no.26 "Fever", are also reproduced on Season 4. There as ep.no.5 and ep.no.12.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alf is a great, but the DVDs..., 18 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just for the record: This show is just great for everybody looking for some entertainment suitable for everybody, but:

This season contains two episodes which belongs to Season 3 (and are included there also). This is ep.no.5 "Mind games" and ep.no.12 "Fever". These are ep. no. 25 and 26 on the Season 3. DVD.

Furthe, on disc 3 two eoisodes are missing: "It's my party" and "Make 'em laugh". Also two episodes is repeted once: "I gotta be me" and "When I'm sixty-four".

I would also like mention that the order of the episodes on Season 3 were really mixed up. This was especially annoying since the baby "Eric" in that Season switched back and forth between embryo and born.

I can't believe I had to pay Cayman £15.75 for this without being warned!

By the way: I've bought quite a few DVDs from Cayman USA, but they have all been dispatched from Auckland, New Zealand, not from U.S.A as they want you to believe, and it takes more like 2 weeks rather than "only 3-5 days" as they say (between holiday seasons)!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the latest BOX SET with 4 DVDs with X-tra material!!!!!, 26 Sept. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I collect this series, and due to space limitations I want the NEWEST box set consisting of TWO SLIM cases containing FOUR DVDs, including one DVD with EXTRA MATERIAL. This reduces the required shelf space to a staggering 1/3!!! as compared to the original edition. The product AMAZON offers as NEW EDITION is an old product from 2002 or earlier containing THREE SLIM cases, one for each of the ordinary DVDs, and the BOX set is therefore 50% thicker. I bought series 1 and 2 in a local store, but series 3 from AMAZON. However, at arrival I was disappointed discovering the Season 3 box set wasn't what I expected! You can't tell the difference between these boxes by looking at the picture, because the box front design, as far as I can tell, is identical!!!

Required shelf space for 10 seasons: Original edition 48cm, Amazon "New Edition" 24cm, and LATEST edition: 16cm.

What about the empty cases and boxes for the series? - Many must have the complete 10 seasons by now and need the space saving for their own collection! Yes, they are available, but is it slim cases and is it the a set of two slim cases for the three DVDs?
