Product Details

Product Description

As the second season of the break-out hit Alice graced the nation's airwaves, Mel's Diner soon became the nation's dining destination of choice. Thanks to its hearty combination of down-home eccentrics, sweet sentiment, blue-collar ethos, and the spice of edgy topicality, Alice proved a dish the nation could not resist. With the central flavorings of Alice (Linda Lavin), Flo (Polly Holliday), and Vera (Beth Howland) rooting the comedy, and Mel (Vic Tayback) and Tommy (Philip McKeon) on hand to balance the distaff waitstaff with curmudgeonly charm and youthful enthusiasm, Alice was cooking with gas and ready to serve up some sit-com gold. George Burns, Jerry Reed, Desi Arnaz are among those who get served in season 2, as the staff faces working holidays, dispossessed natives, divine stars, and the specter of Mel's fiftieth in this 3-Disc, 24-Episode collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Few Episodes Fall a Little Flat--Otherwise, Get It ! Nov. 8 2012
By Kasey G - Published on Amazon.com
I ordered my copy of ALICE: The Complete Second Season as soon as it was announced on the Warner Archive site a few weeks ago to be sure I got pressed discs (instead of DVD-Rs) just like I did for Alice: The Complete First Season. The price was a few dollars cheaper than here too and the cover art and discs follow the same design as the first set--no complaints whatsoever. (**NOTE** The limited-run of pressed discs for Season One has long since sold out and only DVD-Rs are now available--you MUST order early!).

During its' second season on CBS during 1977-78, ALICE was still finding its' footing with a revolving door of producers, writers and directors. Several of the installments this season seem somewhat static and flat compared to Season 1 (see "The Indian Taker" or "The Reporter"). Ironically, this is the year the show jumped into the Top Ten finishing at #8 among all prime-time series for the 1977-78 season, no doubt helped by its' cozy new Sunday-night timeslot following "All in the Family" which was enjoying one of its most brilliant seasons ever. The ALICE cast are still delivering on all counts, but the writing and direction lets them down a little. Despite this, ALICE is still ten times better than any of the current sitcoms and there are indeed some series highlights this season. If you don't already own it on the 2006 Best-of disc, "Close Encounters of the Worst Kind" is ALICE at its' best when Alice's psychology has the gang at each others' throats; Mel insists he doesn't want any fuss made for "Mel's Big Five-0"; Jerry Reed makes his first guest appearance in "Star in the Storeroom" and Mel is trapped at Alice's apartment with an injury in "That Old Back Magic"--all classic episodes. This set also boasts guest appearances from George Burns, Desi Arnaz and Morey Amsterdam.

Two episodes that were held back and originally aired as part of Season 4 ("The Reporter" and "The Bus") are included here--as they should be--rounding out the episode total for this set to twenty-four half-hour shows. The video quality is about as good as it was on Warner's Season One set and the great news is they've already announced that Season Three is in the works and we should see it in the first-quarter of 2013! This is when the show REALLY get's cookin'!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Journey Back to Great TV! Jan. 24 2013
By Diane Mechlinski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been waiting a long time for this 2nd season DVD to come out! "Alice" is one of those genuinely funny comedies where all the characters work well together, are good friends, share everything, and just blend their lives together in a positive way. Sure it was a sitcom, but after all, and especially moreso in today's world - aren't all those show qualities really what we should be watching and enjoying as we try to escape the madness of the "real" world? Sometimes it's good to just sit down, watch some simple problems resolve themselves within less than a 1/2 hour, watch and listen to some laugh-out-loud comedic lines that leave us with a smile. It feels good. And if you are one of those that enjoyed such programming in the 70s and 80s, Alice will not disappoint you.

This series is also great in "going down memory lane" - seeing things like pay phones being used and definitely the outfits being worn, will also bring a nostalgic smile to your face!

I'm definitely enjoying Season 2 of "Alice" and hope that the next season doesn't take quite so long in coming out!

4.0 out of 5 stars I Love "Alice" Aug. 25 2013
By Eve the Muse - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've always loved this TV sitcom. I always get a barrel of laughs watching "Alice". I like her singing on the show and her relationship with her son. I like it that the show also deals with serious issues. The show had some great guest stars as well. I love this show from the opening theme song to the ending credits when Linda Lavin "scats" along with the music. It's one of the best sitcoms ever made and thank goodness, it's on DVD so it can be seen over and over again. I already have Seasons One, Two and Three and I intend to get more when they come on the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars More greatness! July 18 2013
By L. Spake - Published on Amazon.com

I first watched season 1, and then eagerly opened season 2 of Alice. I couldn't turn it off, and I watched pretty much the entire season in 2 days. The second season is probably the best, and I have fond memories of many of these episodes from watching them during summer vacation as a kid. I particularly loved Florence of Arabia! When I lived in Phoenix going to college, I was extremely homesick and watched Alice every morning during my break. The characters always felt like family to me, and I still feel like that today. Corny I know, but this is just a terrific show! I highly recommend it and hope they will put out more seasons soon.
