Default Irene, I have decided to STOP recording Alice on ION. I just can't do it anymore

ION gives out some SLOPPY ASS Episodes, Going to a commercial and the F*cking bell is Ringing-lol So I don't want to waste any more tape on that kind of programming. I will still WATCH it every Night but ION doesn't have the Editing Skills to make me keep it in my collection.

I can understand that. Watching it, it annoys me seeing the editing, but I am so excited to see ALICE again on television so we can chat abt it.

I'm not sounding bitter here, so I want to make sure I sound like I'm being positive, obviously the editing annoys me too, in fact the episodes don't run more than 20:30 each! But with that said in another thread, titled "should I keep recording Alice" I tried to give some well thought out help, as usual when I spend time writing well thought out advice or educated thoughts, the thread is immediatly turned off topic with the next post or no one even replies, which is what happened with that one.....I love these posts, but some of you guys need to write a alittle more sensibily, I don't how many times I sit here laughing at some of the thoughts that are written and with such bad grammer, I certainly am not talking about you TV researcher (you are a legend here), but my sincere advice to you is if it is driving you that crazy, than stop, life is too short, also VHS seems kinda of a waste of time and would certainly take up too much shelf space, but maybe that isn't a problem with you........we have to give ION some credit for even testing Alice, a show that hasn't been seen in years.....the so called classic cable channels are a joke making eratic changes and just coping eachother, ION started that way with Green Acres but now is taking some real chances....everyone is all excited that What's Happening Now is coming to TV Land, let's face it they are running 12 episodes as a test at 7AM, what a bold move!, they actually give shows 3 days to be successful and they are then taken off! I'm surprised they don't actually cancel the show in the middle of the episode and put something elso on!...none of these channels have any balls....they just copy what other networks think are working...examples.....
GREEN ACRES works on TV Land, So Ion runs it
GROWING PAINS comes on ION, so Nick runs it
AMERICA FUNNIEST VIDEOS works on Family, so Nick runs it
FULL HOUSE works on Family, So Nick runs it
LITTLE HOUSE works on Hallmark, so TV Land runs it....
FRESH PRINCE works on Nick, so TBS runs it
the examples never stop......
hopefully ION after getting a shaky start will hopefully expand and give us some real gems we haven't seen in awhile.......

well I actually got off topic, but let's face it, we are all here because we love TV.....so lets get some real constructive comments to follow....

I bet the next post will be something like........I can't wait for "What's Happening Now" to come on TV land, again nothing personal to anyone who writes that but lets hear some well thought out opinions hopefully.

I've put out a challenge and to you my friend TV Researcher, whatever makes you happy......just do it!

Solomiester, I would have told you that the editing wasn't all that. "E" was ten times worse when "Alice" aired on the network. Overall, the quality was flimsy with shaky closing credits and it looks like that the first season should be digitally remasterd. I will continue to tape on DVD but I knoe what to expect. It does get better in later years. "E" would just go to commercial during signicfant parts of the show. It was a mess!

At times, they would take a random commercial.

Actually lately there have been 3 breaks...it changes night to night....sometimes the first one comes about 7 minutes in, then another at 15 minutes in and the last at 24 minutes in...the breaks are definately long, the first is about 2:30 minutes, the middle and last being nearly 3:30 minutes!

making alice run at about 20:45 at the longest!

You are correct my dear friend. I checked that also. I think because the commercial breaks come at such awkward times, it seems like the time is edited, making it seem shorter. Back in the days, programs would end right at 25 minutes after the hour (for example Happy Days ended at 8:25) with abt three commercials shown til 8:30 came along and then Laverne and Shirley would start.

I will only tape the episodes on ION that are not yet on In2TV. I think that they have up almost every episode from S1,except "The Accident" and "Mel's Happy Burger",various S2,S3,S4,S6 episodes(including "Guinness On Tap")and several S7,S8,2 S9 episodes and 1 episode from S5(with Jolene).
Hopefully In2TV will post more episodes soon,since they are uncut.
