Alf Born To Rock

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 revel in the crude humor that accompanies this oddball.

 

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 humorous writing and sketch comedy shows in order to put food on the table for their families. It all began with a live comedy show in a club in Van Nuys, but their unique take 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 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 encounter from the series 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 twists with major characters to humorous one-liners aimed at everyone.

 

I’ve seen some people compare the ALF TV show 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 unknown ship crashed on earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded with no means of travel. In the ALF TV series, the boat landed on earth 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 rich but eccentric character started a company to mine for artifacts in various cultures that were lost.

 

In the series, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and such. She also happens 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, combating the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season one featured a few diverse characters than have been featured in every subsequent season.

 

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, which makes 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 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. These great celebrities easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.

 

As you can see, there is an excellent likelihood that you might 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 first episodes feature some great twists and turns that fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
