This little blurb from today's edition of "USA Today"
USA Today picked this up from a site that picked it up from a magazine that was running a spoof. ALF is not REALLY coming to DVD.
Sorry to be the bearer of news.
Rationality is not a commodity which is evenly distributed.
Thank you Sci-Fi channel for Season 6 of Stargate SG-1

USA Today wrote that??? As was mentioned in a thread in the Software forum here last week, that news is a JOKE! It came from the current issue of Total Movie (#5) from a column made up entirely of FAKE NEWS. There is no truth to it whatsoever.
Believe me - if it was true, I would be the first one to pre-order it. I LOVED ALF when I was a kid.
It's amazing how fast fake news find its way into the major news outlets today, thanks to the Internet. Doesn't anyone at USA Today check the facts?
That sid, I like ALF, and would at least rent it if it came out on DVD.
Damn! Oh well, at least my cat will be safe.
God bless the USA and the men and woman of our military and their families!
This demonstrates how useless mainstream median in the USA has become. Yet many people tomorrow will pick up USA Today and treat it as a credible news source.
I'm sorry, but the fact that the unverified item appeared in the 'Living' section is meaningless. Items must be verified, not just stolen from other magazines.
Had it been true, I would have raised hell that none of my favorite TV series have found their way to DVD yet, namely St. Elsewhere.

Have you watched ALF recently? The show is terrible!
I promise to give you the straight story providing you let me borrow your cat.
I still do a pretty good "Yo, Willy!" Alf imitation.
I also still have my Alf plush doll (I sit him on top of my subwoofer).

Damn, so close! I've been waiting for this show to come back to tv forever(I think it's on the Hallmark channel now).
I also have an Alf doll in my HT. He's an Alf hand puppet, propped up on my right front speaker.
Then there's the Chucky doll, who chills on my DVD shelves. Yeah.
Oh, and Alf used to be on the Odyssey channel on cable not too long ago, I don't know if they still show it. Good stuff.
Here's a family portrait of my DIY speakers, and if you look on the silver beer can subwoofer I have, Alf is sitting on top of it along with this blue Tickle-Me-Dude.
A 12-disc, feature-laden set of all the ALF episodes is impossible because:
A. There are 102 half-hours, which would need at least 17 discs (at 6 episodes per disc).
B. Warner Bros. owns the rights, and they have bungled other TV shows on DVD.
Graeme, you and I must not be talking about the same show.

Hide the cat- Fans of the late 80's TV series ALF will be thrilled to hear that the series will be released on DVD beginning next spring. The twelve disc boxed set will include the entire series run and a bevy of extras, including commentary for each episode with ALF himself, a fifteen minute interview ith Liz "Mrs. Ochmonek" Sheridan and police footage of Max Wright's drunk driving arrest.[/quote]
I guess this joke was a little too subtle for some, as someone somewhere thought it credible enough to quote as truth.
Some of the other stories in this section (Cameron to direct HINDENBURG from 469 page script and 2.7 billion dollar budget, CNN's Larry king to conduct hour long interview with Death) were a bit more absurd making it a bit easier for everyone to know they were jokes-- again guess the ALF boxset was a bit too subtle.
Do you want SOUTH PARK on DVD in order, rather than themed sets? Join our overwhelming majority!!
I loved the first season of Alf. I was in college, and watched the first episode in the dorm tv room. I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe.
But then, ALF "Jumped The Shark" by getting the Ochmonick's kid involved. The show went to hell after that.
