The Season Four set has a major bonus: The Family Ties Vacation movie. This is a feature-length film. There is no laugh track, no audience, and many outdoor scenes. It's quite a change seeing the Keaton's outdoors in England. Oh, did I mention the bulk of the film is set in England?

The rest of the DVD set is typical Family Ties stories about family, relationships and moral dilemmas. They took a new direction this season by giving both Alex and Mallory steady love interests with the recurring characters Ellen and Nick. This provided a rich area for exploring relationships and keeping the viewers invested, and I found myself routing for both relationships. Nick was an especially great addition to the cast as a foil for Steven, Elyse, and especially Alex.

Season 4 was at the midway point of the series run, and has all the great aspects and characters that we remember. If you only buy one season of Family Ties, you couldn't go wrong with Season 4.

I have said it before about the other seasons and I know I am repeating myself, but I have to say it again. Phenomenal and number one in my books.

Possibly the Best Season Ever May 26 2008
By Amazon User - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I'm already counting down to the release date! Season 4 of Family Ties was the Year of Alex and Ellen, and if you were a child of the '80s like me, you still know all the words to "At This Moment" by Billy Vera and the Beaters because you heard it on Family Ties in the 2-parter where Alex and Ellen met and fell in love. (The song has just GOT to be in the episodes! It's a vital part of the story!) Season 4 was also the year Mallory brought Nick home to meet her family for the first time, and the reactions of the Keatons to Nick were comedy gold. And all of the Keatons, plus Skippy, being kept awake by Alex's insomnia (and a faulty burglar alarm), with Elyse finally providing a cure for her firstborn's sleeplessness (one of my favorite ever scenes between Meredith Baxter and Michael J. Fox), is one of the best episodes of all time. This season is a must-have for every true Family Ties fan's collection!

Could be the best season. May 26 2008
By ADRIENNE MILLER - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Family Ties - The Complete Fourth Season just keeps getting better and better. I truly enjoyed every season, the acting was always on top and the storylines always dealth with real issues. Season four is stellar, we are introduced to Ellen who tutors Alex and they fall in love and in real life too. My favorite episodes include: Mr. Wrong, My Tutor, A World to the Wise Part I and II, Teacher's Pet, and Once in Love with Elyse. I highly recommend purchasing season 4, only three seasons left!

Another enjoyable season with the Keatons Dec 14 2009
By O. B. Tryggvason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Well, you really need not bother with the Fourth Season of this show if you're not already a fan. It delivers more of the same from the Keatons; harmless humor and situations that go down very pleasently and without much drama.

Here there's a new Keaton in town, Andy, and the crowded household finds itself having to sort through various problems that arise. There are new additions as well as Scott Valentine joins the gang as Mallory's not-so-desirable boyfriend Nick and Tracy Pollan (the real Mrs. Michael J. Fox) enters as...you guessed it; Alex's girlfriend Ellen.

The standout episode here is the one where Alex can't get any sleep and gradually drives everyone insane in the process. As for the whole season; every cast member has perfected his character and they work really well together. Scott Valentine is a very welcome addition to the show as Nick proves to have a bit more layers than you might have expected and he provides many solid laughs.

Overall; if you liked the previous three seasons than this is a no-brainer. Quite often it's a treat to pop one episode in before you dose off and see a happy family sorting things out...and on that note; Sha la la la.

Family Ties Rocks! July 12 2012
By Taheen Lopez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
FAMILY TIES was an American sitcom that aired for 7 years on NBC from 1982-89 regarding a Midwestern family in suburban Columbus, Ohio reflecting the move in America from the cultural liberism of the 1960's and 1970's to the conservatism of the 1980's that was particularly expressed through the relationship between young Republican Alex Keaton(Michael J. Fox), materialistic Mallory(Justine Bateman), athletic tomboy Jennifer(Tina Yothers), independent architect Elyse(Meredith Baxter), and local TV station manager Steven(Michael Gross).

Additionally; FAMILY TIES was an instant smash when it made its debut on NBC in the Fall of 1982 and even won various awards, including 3 consecutive Emmy Awards for Michael J. Fox as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

FAMILY TIES 4th Season is also the season when Scott Valentine joins the cast & crew as Mallory's boyfriend(Nick).

This 1985-86 Season takes me back to memory lane to when I was 13 years old in 7th grade and when NBC's motto was "Let's All Be There", which was NBC's slogan from the Fall of 1984 thru the Summer of 1986.

The original air-dates and titles to each of these 1985-1986 Season episodes
9/26/85-THE REAL THING(Part 1)
10/3/85-THE REAL THING(Part 2)
10/17/85-MR. WRONG
10/31/85-DON'T GO CHANGIN'
11/14/85-MY TUTOR

One of the best shows on TV. Sept. 23 2008
By Skyclad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I grew up in the 80's and this is one of my favorite shows from back then. It's odd, a lot of shows I liked as a kid I didn't like later in life for one reason or another, but not Family Ties. It's the perfect show to watch when I want to be transported back to the 80's, if only for a brief time. My thoughts on the show have changed a bit, like when I was young I liked Michael J. Fox's portrayal of Alex the most... which makes sense because most kids did... he was kind of the star of the show. But now, I find Steven to be more interesting. He's definitely funnier to me now that I'm older.
