Default Kate & Allie - The Complete Third Season (Canadian Release) DVD Review

Early last year, around the time when Universal released a few shows, fans of Kate & Allie were pleased to see a preview for Kate & Allie: Seasons 1 and 2 on the DVD set. But a few months later, we learned that we would only be getting the first season (6 episodes) at about the same price as what the first two seasons would have been. The news only got worse when I reviewed the first season to discover that 6 episodes were edited. But fans were pleased when they learned that the Canadian company VEI would also be releasing a set containing the first two seasons of Kate & Allie, but only to be let down once again when seven episodes were, again, syndicated versions.

Now, a little over half a year later, VEI is back with more Kate & Allie, with the third season. And this time, they have gotten it correct! Kate & Allie: The Complete Third Season contains all 23 episodes from the 1985-1986 of the sitcom that, while not exactly remembered as a hit sitcom these days, really should be. Normally I'd wait until later on to talk about edits, but since this show has had such a troubled history on DVD, I'll mention it now. First and foremost, this set does NOT contain any syndicated versions of any of the episodes, and 22 of the 23 episodes appear to be totally unedited. However, there is one episode on the set that runs noticeably shorter than all of the rest, and is also missing the closing tag (which every episode of the show, to my knowledge, originally had).

Post any questions or comments about this set.

Great review TJ! Thanks for filling us in. I was just notified that my set has just been shipped out to me. I look forward to receiving it.

I'm really surprised that there are no bonus episodes on this set though. That was sorta VEI's thing to do on their sets. I wonder why they didn't do it this time around. I hope they do continue both Kate & Allie and Gimme a Break! on dvd. It's our only chance right now of getting the shows released in complete sets. Even with the syndicated cuts of Kate & Allie on the first set, I'm willing to overlook that as long as we keep getting more releases. Hey, we're already halfway through with Kate & Allie and with one more season of GAB!, we'll be halfway through with that show too.
