Loved this show when it was first aired in the UK back in the early 90's. To watch it on a uk speck dvd player I had to convert it to multi regional the big downfall was it cost me in total £91 for the conversion, dvd and import charges. Exspensive but worth it I thought as I loved this show.

HASH(0x8f44a78c) out of 5 stars Not all episodes are complete 17 Jun. 2012
By Movie Mania - Published on Amazon.com
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.

By Martin van Genderen - Published on Amazon.com
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.

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.

HASH(0x8feb799c) out of 5 stars A great collection of a GREAT show!!! 5 Jan. 2013
By Chris A. Smith - Published on Amazon.com

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.

HASH(0x8f509a98) out of 5 stars Sweet and Funny. Love it. 17 Mar. 2014
By Lisa W. - Published on Amazon.com

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.
