If you couldn't tell, he was referring to the butchered ALF DVDs from LionsGate a decade ago. Virtually every episode on those sets were the same damn edited Syndicated versions that anyone can easily see for free, and they were said to be even shorter than said Syndicated versions. These had been seen in local Syndication since around 1990. LionsGate claimed that the reason for this was because the Syndicated versions were tighter, cleaner quality, and better edited, were the only ones they had access to, and were the versions Paul Fusco preferred. The fact is, full-length versions of the episodes (save for "Somewhere Over the Rerun", in which the network version has been lost to the ravages of time, only the Syndicated version exists) had aired before on the Odyssey Channel. And those were in better quality than on the DVDs. So there was no *bleeping* excuse.
