Default Family Ties - The Sixth Season DVD Review

Steven (Michael Gross) and Elyse Keaton (Meredith Baxter Birney) keep the love rolling and the laughs coming in Family Ties: The Sixth Season. Still under one roof are ultra-conservative son Alex (Michael J. Fox), shopaholic daughter Mallory (Justine Bateman), strong-willed Jennifer (Tina Yothers) and young Alex-in-training Andrew (Brian Bonsall). The family is in transition as Alex starts a new relationship, Mallory starts an internship at Steven's station, and Jennifer takes a stand reminiscent of her parents' 1960s humanitarian spirit. The Keaton family may be part liberal and part conservative, but at the end of the day...they all share it together.

Awesome! I can't wait for this release! I really hope it sells well and Season 7 follows it quickly so I can finally have the whole "Family Ties" series on DVD! I love this show!
Thanks for the great review!

Thanks for the review. I just read it. Anniversary Waltz is a good episode. It looks to be about 43 to 45 seconds shorter than the other episodes. I'm curious what they cut out. It's a shame they do that, but I'm glad the season is being released.

I don't think Anniversary Waltz is edited. It was made during the 2nd Season and Season 2 episodes had an average running time of 24 minutes. Return of the Native is most likely ok too since the Season 4 episodes also had a running time of about 24 minutes.


The Blues Brother is edited. The part at the very beginning where Alex plays the record "Stardust" and talks about it has been cut. It's missing about 20-22 seconds. I don't know if The Play's the Thing is edited but it's 30 seconds shorter than usual. I have a syndicated version of that ep so I'll see if I can find anything.
