All the episodes have been butchered, with several minutes taken out. They take away ten seconds here, twenty seconds there... Beginnings or endings of conversations are erased, often making them seem awkward. To those of us who remember the episodes as they were originally aired the aggravation will be really painful. I consider it a criminal act to actually sell a product like this, especially since there is no warning.

There is at least one other version on the market which has not been altered, but I have only been able to obtain season one. The DVD's were apparently originally made for the Dutch market (my guess) and the box I have features the entire Tanner family + Alf on the cover, in close-up.

This series hasn't dated (apart from the clothing) The central concept is still very appealing. The idea of an alien crash landing through a family's house and becoming part of the family is still a great idea. This collection features all 26 episodes from season two (1987) and every episode is hillarious. The Christmas special is a two part episode; which is why this set has 26 episodes and not 25 as stated. the DVD menus are excellent with all new Alf footage. Alf will also tell you abit about each episode if you want him too. There is two bonus episodes from the ALF cartoon series. Overall this is a very good collection. It loses a star because these are the sydicated episodes and not the full uncut versions. strangely though the Christmas two parter doesn't appear to have been edited; it runs longer by about 5 mins. The picture is also a little sharper on this episode. Did Lions Gate take this episode from the original negatives and not the sydicated ones? I don't think the Christmas episode will have been placed into sydication. If this is the case then how come this episode is better quality? I thought the original negatives were too bad to take copies from? Hm... If they can take the Christmas special from the original negatives (IE: Uncut) then why can't they take the rest of the series from them? I don't think they'll ever release this series in the UK or again (uncut) so you should buy this set from Amazon and savour the old Alfer once again. The picture quality is very good and the sound has been remastered into Dolby 2.0. Now, all we need is for them to release Alf's hit talk show on DVD and we'll be laughin' Ha ha! I kill me! No problem...
