Product Description

VEI Proudly Presents the Complete First and Second Seasons of the Groundbreaking Emmy Award Winning TV Sitcom Kate & Allie on DVD! This 4 Disc Set Contains all 6 Episodes from Season One & all 22 Episodes from Season Two + Bonus Material Starring Susan Saint James (MacMillan & Wife) and Jane Curtain (Saturday Night Live, 3rd Rock From The Sun) When Allie (Jane Curtain) divorces her husband and gets custody of their two children, she moves to New York City and moves in with her best friend Kate (Susan Saint James), who is also divorced and raising a teenage daughter. The five of them form a unique kind of family unit in this beloved feel good comedy from the 1980s.

Amazon.ca

Kate & Allie: Season One 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. A mid-season replacement in 1984, the sitcom 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.

In the first of six episodes, viewers are introduced to Allie's first post-divorce date, played by a dashing young Kelsey Grammer (Cheers, Frasier). Almost two decades before the gals on Sex and 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 the series ended production in 1989, Kate and Allie's relationship had gotten a little hackneyed and it was time for the ladies to move on. But those first few seasons were fast, funny, and full of possibilities. --Jae-Ha Kim

As others have stated, this is better than the US release both with price and the fact you get season two as well. The problem is that half the episodes on the set are the syndicated (i.e. edited) versions, not the original airings. Some episodes run about 22 minutes, and others 24. It's most obvious when the epilogues with Kate & Allie sitting & sipping coffee are missing. The whole point of purchasing DVDs of sitcoms is to get the ENTIRE episode. Could they not find the master copies of certain episodes? Or was someone just lazy in putting this together? The manufacturers really should be required to tell the consumer whether or not episodes are complete. It really cuts down on the enjoyment factor. 5 stars for the show itself, but 3 for the release.

This is a show that with a little updating could be successful today. The episodes look good on the disk considering age and medium. If you skipped the U.S. release in favor of more episodes you'll be satisfied with this one. Note however the only extra is a bonus episode of "Gimme a Break." There are no interviews bloopers or anything extra related to Kate and Allie. 5 stars for the show, the lower rating is for Amazons misinformation and vei's missing the opportunity for a definitive disk.

The episodes are as good as I remember them to be, and this is a much better deal than the 6-episode disc that comprised the American release of Season 1. This American 6-episode disc costs approximately the same as this two-season release. However, 2 consecutive sets have had the same problem: episodes 5 through 8 of Season 2 cannot be accessed. (This problem has not occurred with any of the other discs, nor has it occurred on any other DVDs in our collection.) It might have been a defective run.

Finally! Aug. 6 2007
By Jarle L. Nyvoll - Published on Amazon.com
While I agree that the marketing strategy for the US and Canadian release of Kate & Allie left a lot to be desired, I am happy that these wonderful episodes made it to DVD at all. The casting, the writing, the acting... Watching these shows feels like coming home... and I have lived in Norway all my life!

Love this Series Nov. 8 2009

If you loved Kate & Allie then you will love watching these old shows again. I love revisiting all the old 80's hairstyles and clothes! It is hard to believe this show is about 25 years old! This Cd set I bought had both the 1st and 2nd season and although I think a little pricey I have enjoyed it.

Deals with divorce better than any comedy today Jan. 11 2010
By Lisa T - Published on Amazon.com

Remember when shows were funny, topical, and light hearted? This is one that got it right. They deal with divorce, starting over, and parenting. All with warmth, intelligence, and those crazy 80's fashions. I have not seen a show since that deals with relevant topics that kids can watch too. I enjoyed it when it first aired, but appreciate it more today.
