I'm so glad that VEI has continued to release seasons of this excellent 80's sitcom. "Kate & Allie" has an astute combination of humor and real-life scenarios that give it an extra edge. The chemistry between Saint James and Curtin is natural and believable (which makes it hard to swallow that they reportedly got along very badly in reality). The various episodes here also strike a nice balance between focusing on Kate and Allie's issues and those of their children's. The number of notable guest stars (like Ben Stiller and Lindsay Wagner) also contribute to the overall fun of this set.

In addition to the above, the show has several other redeeming qualities. One, it was filmed in New York (including short scenes at the beginning of each episode that were filmed on the actual streets); two, the premise that Kate & Allie were both single momms who had moved in together to raise their respective families. It was ahead of its time in the latter way (as proven by the fact that in later seasons, the opening credits showed Kate & Allie going to separate beds -- to disprove notions that they were lesbian). And the fact that it was filmed in New York definitely gave it a vibe and mood that sets it apart from most Hollywood-based sitcoms.

Let's hope that VEI will treat us to the remaining three seasons of this unique show!

HASH(0xa667f00c) out of 5 stars Classic and enduring May 7 2008
By Joanna M - Published on Amazon.com

Susan Saint James and Jane Curtin return for the third season of this classic, endearing '80s sitcom as two divorced moms, sharing a New York City apartment to help make ends meet.

With their children - Kate's Emma and Allie's Chip and Jennie - the lifelong best friends get into their shares of hijinks. They also support one another through emotional crises, as seen in "Thanksgiving," where Allie finds herself alone with Charles' new wife Claire.

This great box set is definitely worth your time and money!
HASH(0xa667f234) out of 5 stars Kate & Allie Rule May 20 2014
By Taheen Lopez - Published on Amazon.com
This 1985-86 Season of this awesome sitcom that ran on CBS from 1984-89 introduced a new type of nuclear family to the 1980s: a pair of divorced women living with their children together in a somewhat cramped New York brownstone.

The mid-season debut of KATE & ALLIE'S replacement in the Spring of 1984 starring Susan Saint James as Kate McArdle and Jane Curtain as Allie Lowell was both a critical and commercial success. The shoulder pads, clunky answering machine, and hairdon'ts give away the decade, but the storylines of grown-up best friends supporting and, at times, sparring with each other during personal and professional crises are timeless.

Curtain and Saint James share a wonderful chemistry that makes them easy to watch. At the start of this 6-year sitcom, viewers are introduced to Allie's first post-divorce date, played by a dashing young Kelsey Grammer from CHEERS & FRASIER.

Almost 2 decades before the gals on SEX & THE CITY began tackling relationships, Kate summed it up best: "Dating's about finding someone so you never have to date again." By the time CBS cancelled KATE & ALLIE in the Spring of 1989, Kate and Allie's relationship had gotten a little hackneyed & stale and it was time for the ladies to move on. But those first few seasons were fast, funny, and full of possibilities since the show was still in its honeymoon phase, but perhaps the whole cast & crew of the show was getting tired & the show was running out of steam.

I remember watching this show in the late 80ies on Sky Channel in Europe and missed having it on air when this channel went out of business. Now I am looking forward to seeing more episodes of this, as I did with seasons one and two. I received this collection at my friends address in great shape and am taking it back to Switzerland with me. Thanks
