Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
In this endearing, classic sitcom that's more relevant now than ever, a headstrong and optimistic single mom from New Jersey is on her way to Hollywood to pursue a career as a singer when her car breaks down in Phoenix. With her 12-year-old son and herself to feed, Alice (Linda Lavin) makes the best of her waitress job serving greasy food to demanding customers at Mel's Diner. Luckily, she has her oddball co-workers — the fun-loving, man-chasing Flo (Polly Holliday); sweet, ditzy Vera (Beth Howland); and their gruff boss, Mel (Vic Tayback) — to brighten her days while she keeps her dreams of stardom alive. Based on the Academy Award®-winning film Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, directed by Martin Scorsese, Alice won eight Golden Globe Awards®.

A television classic!
Many sitcoms today have one gaint problem. They aren't funny! Alice has wonderful, believeable characters and the humor is funny and real. Many of the people who write sitcoms today need to watch a few episodes of Alice to learn about writing a funny show. The entire cast: Linda Lavin, Polly Holliday, the late Vic Tayback, and Philip McKeown were fantastic. Thanks iTunes. Now I want to see "Flo," the Alice spin-off series. Kiss Mah Grits!
Love this show!!
This is a lost classic show that I grew up watching, its been YEARS since I've seen Alice. This show, WKRP in Cincinnati and One Day at a Time were also from this generation. Great TV, great cast & all very funny to this day. A little secret tidbit. One of the regular customers (the short guy with the glasses) was also the voice in the Starkist commercials of that decade..it was always a treat to hear the commercials and know who he was--just side note.
well I'll be
This is one of those great late 70's shows mom use to sit me infront of while she was doing the laundry. It's a T.V. classic. If AC/DC is a must have for rockers then this sits close by for sit-com folks.
