Alf Anteater

A super-intelligent, fast-talking monster, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed in a Southern California garage. His ship is beyond repair; he is ugly, short, he has a nasty temper and he’s, well, pretty unique. So what’s 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.

 

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 so as to put food on the table for their families. It all started with a live comedy show at a bar in Van Nuys, but their unique spin on live tv is unique in that it takes you right into the center of the action – or as some might say,” in the know.”

 

The premise of the ALF TV series is that a bald, middle-aged scientist, played by Baer, implants artificial intelligence in the head of an unsuspecting citizen. The”body” then begins to ramble while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In every episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we encounter from the series join the fun. It is like being a part of an all-star team of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There is something for everyone here, people, from twists with major characters to hilarious one-liners aimed 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 could 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 way of travel. From the ALF TV series, the ship 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 bizarre character started a company to mine for artifacts in various cultures that were lost.

 

From the show, 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 the series, combating the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season 1 featured a few different characters than have been showcased 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 is going on in every episode. Most 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.

 

In addition to incorporating a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also offers some of the greatest actors from television now. They have superb functions as both main characters, in addition to memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. The supporting cast is also fantastic, including the likes of Kate Beckinsale, John Hartley, Craig Bierko, and Dexter Darden.

 

As you can see, there’s a good likelihood that you may enjoy the ALF television series premier. If you haven’t seen the first season, you may choose to catch up on it whenever possible. The first episodes feature some terrific twists and turns that fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
