    With all the outrage over the synducated Alf episodes why hasn't Paul Fusco stood up and tried to do anything, at least to the best of my knoweldge. We saw how Roseanne listened to the complaints and got the problems fixed for season two, yet not a word from Fusco. As afr as the Lion's Gate explination, how the heck can a less than 20 year old show be in such horrible shape?

    What's he going to say? It's his idea to use the syndicated tapes instead of spending the money to go back to the 1-inch masters.

    Even if he didn't want to use the syndicated versions, who's going to listen to him? Rosanne, while not the star she once was, has alot more say than Paul Fusco would.

    If Lion's Gate didn't listen to hundreds of consumers about Alf, they're not going to listen to one guy even if he's the creator.

    For that matter, how does anyone know he didn't piss and moan and carry on cranky in the Lion's Gate offices, only to be ignored? Would he also have to make a pointless public display of complaining in that case to get "credit" from certain fans? (Why don't we have a "head shake" smiley? [​IMG])

    Fusco owns the show. Fusco provided the materials for the DVDs. Fusco knows full well what he put out. I am friends with someone who knows him and he called Fusco and asked him about it. If anyone has a better source of information other than the owner, creator and provider of the tapes of the show, please feel free to comment.
