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, fairly unique. So what’s a concerned family to do? Why, take the alien meat out of an airtight box, of course, and enjoy the crude comedy 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 in a bar in Van Nuys, but their distinctive 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 series is that a bald, middle-aged scientist, played by Baer, implants artificial intelligence from the mind 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 show join the fun. It’s like being a part of an all-star group of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There is something for everybody here, people, from spins with major characters to humorous one-liners targeted at everyone.

 

I have seen some people compare the ALF TV series to an Orphan Ship, which is obviously a humorous science fiction concept that has nothing to do with this creation. 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. 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 bizarre character started a company to mine for artifacts in various lost civilizations.

 

From the show, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and such. She also appears to be the mom of the main 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, battling the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season one featured a few diverse characters than have been showcased in each subsequent season.

 

It features some very exciting story elements that keep you interested in what’s 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, which makes it feel like a legitimate 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. Two of the main characters, Jay and Paul, are played by the incredible Kevin Pollack and Brian Price. They have superb roles as the two chief 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 is an excellent chance 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 as soon as possible. The first episodes feature some terrific twists and turns that fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
