1987 Talking Alf

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

 

What really makes this series work is its witty writing and its ability to draw you in. 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 funny writing and sketch comedy shows in order 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 spin 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 series is that a bald, middle-aged scientist, played by Baer, implants artificial intelligence from the mind of an unsuspecting citizen. The”body” then begins to wander while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In every episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we come across from the show join the fun. It’s like being part of an all-star team of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There is something for everybody here, people, from spins with major characters to humorous one-liners targeted at everyone.

 

I’ve seen some people compare the ALF TV series to an Orphan Ship, which is of course 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 boat 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 earth before being salvaged and later found 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 team of scientists, politicians, thieves, and the like. 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 this 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.

 

So, if you like your science fiction tv shows 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 is going on in every episode. The majority of the content is written in a script and filmed using the same effects and special effects as regular films, which makes it feel like a legitimate science fiction program.

 

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

 

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