Alf Arms Up

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’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.

 

They started doing their own funny writing and sketch comedy shows so as 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 spin on live television is unique in that it takes you right into the center 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 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 group of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There is something for everybody here, folks, from spins with major characters to humorous one-liners aimed at everyone.

 

I have seen some folks 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 could be somewhat misleading. The assumption of Orphan Ship was that an unknown boat crashed on earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded without any means of travel. From the ALF TV series, the boat landed on ground 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 cultures that were lost.

 

This crew of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of the series, combating 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 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’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 movies, making it feel like a valid science fiction program.

 

In addition to featuring 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 both chief characters, in addition to memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. The supporting cast is also fantastic, featuring the likes of Kate Beckinsale, John Hartley, Craig Bierko, and Dexter Darden. These fantastic actors easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.

 

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