A super-intelligent, fast-talking monster, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed in 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, take the alien meat out of an airtight box, of course, and revel in 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 started with a live comedy show in a bar 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 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 each episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we come across from the show join the fun. It is like being a 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 hilarious one-liners aimed at everyone.
I have 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 production. However, that comparison would be somewhat misleading. The assumption of Orphan Ship was that an unidentified boat crashed on a planet and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded without any way of travel. In the ALF TV series, the boat landed on ground 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.
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 featured 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 using 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 today. They have superb roles as the two main characters, in addition to memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis.
As you can see, there’s an excellent chance that you might enjoy the ALF television series premier. When you haven’t seen the first season, you may choose to catch up on it as soon as possible. The first episodes feature some terrific twists and turns that fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
