Seeing that I live in the United States, the only way up until now to watch ALF on DVD was via the Region 1 sets released in the USA from Lionsgate. Although these releases contain a flawless restoration from an an audio / video perspective, the prints are not the original broadcast episodes. Instead they are syndicated versions lopping anywhere from 3 - 6 minutes off of each episode and are not arranged by broadcast date. Finally, a release worth of ALF. These are complete UNCUT episodes as orginally broadcast. Although I did have to get a region free DVD to player to view them here in the States, the cost of the player and the extra cost of getting the from overseas was well worth it. The only thing that prevents them from getting 4 stars instead of 5 is that the transfer is not as crisp as they could have been, but I will take the trade-off any day!
if you had seen this 80s tv show you will love it and dont worry about having to learn french as its in english apart from the box packaging also they have not been edited like what i heared on other sets.why cant they make more tv shows like these as i could not stop laughing at what alf gets upto
This is a great collection of this series. It's a bit round the houses kind of way...it's a French product, but does have English as a choice of language. The doll is okay, but not a big one. Fond memories of when I first watched this in my early teenage years.
I happened to find this TV series by chance on Amazon France because I didn't remember Alf. Now I can only say that this character is familiar to me but I don't really remember the episodes maybe because I was very young at the time. Looking forward to watching it soon! See some pictures attached! Good price (less than €30). Thank you very much!
This is an absolute gem of a find. Don't be put off with the cover being in French. These are the original recordings and the quality is excellent. They have done a brilliant job in giving us back our favourite TV character Alf.
I love the plush toy that comes with this collection. He is not quite the exact likeness but at a glance, you can clearly see its Alf.
I am so glad I have found this set as there is nothing else that is anything as great as this. I now have many happy hours of nostalgia.
When Alf hit the tv I was a kid and watched every week with my brothers and cousins old good times anyway loves the dvd's. Two things that slightly wrong with it. 1 the way the episodes are organize on the dvd are a bit messy when you play them on PC but it is a small thing. 2 the toy hardly resemble the Alf but my cat loves it.
