Default Kate & Allie - The Complete Series DVD Review

In the 1970s, Oscar Madison and Felix Unger proved that two divorced men can share an apartment without driving each other crazy, but in the 1980s, Kate McArdle (Susan Saint James) and Allie Lowell (Jane Curtin) proved that two divorced women can share not only an apartment, but also an entire life and even a career, while enjoying it all. That was the premise of the series Kate & Allie, the series that is often credited as "saving the family sitcom" in the 80s, and even putting a new twist on what defines a family.

Beginning as a mid-season replacement for CBS near the end of the 1983-1984 season, Kate & Allie, with only six episodes in the season, managed to come in at an impressive fourth place in the Nielsen ratings at the end of the season (and was in fact the only top ten sitcom that season), making it a no-brainer for CBS to immediately renew it for a second season. The series was produced and directed by Bill Persky, who had previously been known for his work on series such as The Dick Van Dyke Show and That Girl. The series went on to win several Emmy awards and lasted for six seasons, although by the time the sixth season came around, the series lost steam as Allie got married and the kids moved out, killing the original premise of the series. But now, for the first time ever, all six seasons are available on DVD in one collection, in Visual Entertainment Inc.'s release of Kate & Allie - The Complete Series, available in Canada (but can easily be purchased and played in the United States).
