1980s Icons Alf

A super-intelligent, fast-talking monster, 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’s, well, fairly unique. So what is a concerned family to do? Why, take the alien meat from an airtight box, of course, and enjoy the crude humor 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 both started doing their own humorous writing and sketch comedy shows so as to put food on the table for their families. It all started with a live comedy show in a club in Van Nuys, but their unique take on live television 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 series is that a bald, middle-aged scientist, played by Baer, implants artificial intelligence from the head 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 come across from the series 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, folks, from twists with major characters to humorous one-liners targeted 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 creation. However, that comparison could be somewhat misleading. The assumption of Orphan Ship was that an unknown ship crashed on a planet and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded without any means of travel. From the ALF TV series, the ship landed on earth before being salvaged and later discovered to be owned by an eccentric billionaire (based on the novel Beneath the Fall by Stephen King). Thus, this wealthy but eccentric character started a company to mine for artifacts in various lost civilizations.

 

From the series, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and the like. She also happens to be the mother of the key characters, Jay (Kenny Johnson), Paul (Scott Adsit), Dean (Kevin Pollack), and Simon (Glenn Hower). This crew of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of the series, battling the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season 1 featured a few diverse characters than have been featured in every subsequent season.

 

So, if you like your science fiction television shows just a little bit edgy, then the ALF TV series may be for you. 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 using the very same effects and special effects as regular films, making it feel like a legitimate science fiction program.

 

As well as incorporating a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also features some of the best actors from television now. They have superb roles as the two main characters, in addition to memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. These fantastic celebrities easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.

 

As you can see, there is a good likelihood that you may enjoy the ALF television show highest. When you have not seen the first season, you might choose to catch up on it whenever possible. The first episodes feature some great twists and turns which fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
