1937-1940 Alf Fire Trucks

A super-intelligent, fast-talking creature, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed at a Southern California garage. His ship is beyond repair; he’s ugly, short, he’s got a nasty temper and he is, well, fairly unique. So what’s a concerned family to do? Why, accept the alien meat out of an airtight box, of course, and revel in the crude comedy that accompanies this oddball.

 

Produced by two guys that are friends, Matt Baer and Jason Hawes, the two teamed up in the early 1990s to create this oddball humor. They started doing their own humorous writing and sketch comedy shows in order to put food on the table for their families. It all began with a live comedy show in a club in Van Nuys, but their unique take on live tv is unique in that it takes you right into the middle of the action – or as some may say,” in the know.”

 

The assumption of the ALF TV show is that a bald, middle-aged scientist, played by Baer, implants artificial intelligence from the mind of an unsuspecting citizen. The”body” then starts to ramble while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In each episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we encounter from the show join the fun. It’s like being a part of an all-star group of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There’s something for everybody here, people, from twists with major characters to humorous one-liners aimed at everyone.

 

I’ve seen some folks compare the ALF TV series to an Orphan Ship, which is obviously a humorous science fiction concept that has nothing to do with this production. However, that comparison would be somewhat misleading. The premise of Orphan Ship was that an unidentified ship crashed on earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded with no way of travel. From the ALF TV series, the boat landed on ground before being salvaged and later discovered to be possessed by an eccentric billionaire (based on the novel Beneath the Fall by Stephen King). Thus, this rich but eccentric character started a company to mine for artifacts in various lost civilizations.

 

From the show, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and such. She also appears to be the mom of the key characters, Jay (Kenny Johnson), Paul (Scott Adsit), Dean (Kevin Pollack), and Simon (Glenn Hower). This team of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of the series, combating the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season one featured a few different characters than have been showcased in every subsequent season.

 

It features some very exciting story elements that keep you interested in what’s going on in each episode. Most of the content is written in a script and filmed with the same effects and special effects as regular films, making it feel like a valid science fiction program.

 

As well as incorporating a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also features some of the greatest actors from television now. Two of the main characters, Jay and Paul, are played by the Unbelievable Kevin Pollack and Brian Price. They have superb functions as both main characters, as well as memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis.

 

As you can see, there is a good chance that you may enjoy the ALF television series premier. If you have not seen the first season, you may want to catch up on it whenever possible. The initial episodes feature some terrific twists and turns which fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
