Season 1 - Uhhh.... (8/17/2004)

Summary of "Season 1 - Uhhh....":
I'm sure I'll take heat for this, but this isn't a good set. The packaging is cheap, most of the episodes are edited versions, some music has been substituted, and there aren't many extras. Fans on DVD forums are posting about how they are trying to return their purchased sets, and telling friends and family members to stay away from the set. Lions Gate has taken a good property (ALF) and found a way to screw it up. Fans of the show were excited that the show was coming, and now they're disappointed in the set that was released. Lions Gate has done some wonderful DVD sets (The Dead Zone), but this one is a stinker. If you need your ALF fix then I might suggest ordering The ALF Files, a Canadian-only release that's a few years old. Hopefully Lions Gate can repair the damage they've done by releasing a flawless season 2 set, but how many customers have they already lost? (read entire review)
