A super-intelligent, fast-talking creature, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed in a Southern California garage. His ship is beyond repair; he’s ugly, short, he’s got 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 comedy that accompanies this oddball.
What really makes this show work is its witty writing and its ability to draw you in. They both 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 distinctive 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 from the mind of an unsuspecting citizen. The”body” then starts to ramble while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In each episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we encounter 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’s something for everybody here, folks, from twists with major characters to humorous one-liners aimed at everyone.
I have 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 premise of Orphan Ship was that an unknown ship crashed on a planet 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 found 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 lost civilizations.
In the series, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and such. This team of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of the series, battling the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season 1 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 is going on in each episode. The majority of the content is written in a script and filmed with the very same effects and special effects as regular movies, making it feel like a legitimate science fiction program.
As well as featuring a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also offers some of the best actors from television now. They have superb functions as the two chief characters, as well as memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis.
As you can see, there’s an excellent likelihood 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 whenever possible. The initial episodes feature some terrific twists and turns which fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
