Alf Barry

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, 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.

 

What really makes this show work is its witty writing and its ability to draw you in. They started doing their own funny 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 spin on live television 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 show 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 encounter from the show 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 everyone here, people, from twists with major characters to humorous one-liners targeted at everyone.

 

I have seen some folks compare the ALF TV show to an Orphan Ship, which is obviously 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 boat crashed on earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded with no way of travel. In the ALF TV series, the ship landed on earth before being salvaged and later found 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 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 every 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’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 films, which makes it feel like a valid science fiction program.

 

As well as incorporating a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also offers some of the best actors from television today. They have superb roles as the two main characters, as well as 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 is a good likelihood that you may enjoy the ALF television show highest. If you have not 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.
