I think that it is stupid to release edited episodes. I mean what if a cd had 10% of each song missing? However, I did buy the Alf sets but only with Christmas money and gift cards. Plus for the season one set they said on the box that it was a complete season and listed an inflated running time. I don't know what grounds one would have in terms of false advertising charges but an inflated run time listed should be enough. If studios are forced to put up disclaimers regading commentaries and interviews then they should make it clear that they have edited episodes, which they did for season 2 I just wish Fusco would step out of his costume and make sure unedited episodes get released, I would hope he would have enough pride in his work to let us see the full episodes as shows 20-30 years older than Alf have released complete episodes in good quality. Certainly the tapes haven't deteriorated that badly. As far as music replacement goes, I'm not a huge stickler for songs as long as episodes are complete and I could live with Happy Days releaases without music as long as episodes are complete since I don't remember the songs airing originally anyway.
