Alice's sixth season sees the staff settling in for a steady service of hopes, dreams, chili and grits-kissing. While Alice (Linda Lavin) ponders her life choices as she approaches forty, Vera (Beth Howland) attends her school reunion and ends up engaged, Jolene (Celia Weston) trades in her wages for fear as a dynamite trucker, Tommy (Philip McKeon) considers becoming an actor and Mel (Vic Tayback) thinks about getting a nose job.
Among the celebrity diners stopping by Mel's for some chili are Donald O'Connor (as himself), Doris Roberts, George Wendt, Jay Leno and Kenneth Mars. This 3-Disc, 26-Episode Collection contains the entire sixth season as originally produced, including Do You Take This Waitress? and The Secret of Mel's Diner, which both originally aired during the series' seventh season, as well as the season five episodes Mel's Cousin, Wendell and Vera And The Bouncing Check, which aired in the sixth.
The Warner Archive Collection has announced that in two weeks, on December 5th
, they will release DVDs of Alice - The Complete 6th Season
as an MOD (manufacture on demand) title. Priced at $34.99 for three discs, it brings us to the two-thirds mark in the sitcom's nine season run.
