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 has a nasty temper and he’s, well, pretty unique. So what’s a concerned family to do? Why, accept the alien meat out of an airtight box, of course, and enjoy the crude comedy that accompanies this oddball.
They both 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 at a bar 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 might say,” in the know.”
The premise of the ALF TV show is that a bald, middle-aged scientist, played by Baer, implants artificial intelligence from the head 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 series 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 hilarious one-liners targeted at everyone.
I have 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 creation. 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 without any means of travel. In the ALF TV series, the ship landed on earth 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 wealthy but bizarre character started a company to mine for artifacts in various lost civilizations.
In the show, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and the like. This team of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of this series, combating the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season 1 featured a few diverse characters than have been showcased in each subsequent season.
So, if you like your science fiction tv 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 is going on in each episode. The majority of the content is written in a script and filmed with the same effects and special effects as regular movies, making it feel like a legitimate science fiction program.
As well as featuring a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also features some of the best actors from television today. Two of the main characters, Jay and Paul, are played with the incredible 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’s a good likelihood that you may enjoy the ALF television series premier. 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 that fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
