Alf-cover 5e

A super-intelligent, fast-talking monster, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed at a Southern California garage. His ship is beyond repair; he is ugly, short, he has a nasty temper and he is, well, fairly unique. So what is a concerned family to do? Why, accept the alien meat out of an airtight box, of course, and revel in the crude comedy that accompanies this oddball.

 

What really makes this series work is its witty writing and its ability to draw you in. Created 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 started with a live comedy show in a club in Van Nuys, but their distinctive spin 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 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 begins to ramble while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In each episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we come across from the series join the fun. It’s like being part of an all-star team of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There’s something for everybody here, folks, from twists with major characters to hilarious one-liners targeted at everyone.

 

I’ve seen some people compare the ALF TV show to an Orphan Ship, which is of course a humorous science fiction concept that has nothing to do with this production. However, that comparison could be somewhat misleading. The assumption of Orphan Ship was that an unidentified ship crashed on a planet and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded without any way of travel. In the ALF TV series, the ship landed on ground before being salvaged and later discovered 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.

 

From the show, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and the like. This team of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of the series, combating the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season 1 featured a few different characters than have been showcased in every subsequent season.

 

It features some very exciting story elements that keep you interested in what’s going on in every episode. The majority of the content is written in a script and filmed using the very same effects and special effects as regular movies, making it feel like a valid science fiction program.

 

As well as featuring a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also features some of the best actors from television today. They have superb functions as both 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. These fantastic celebrities easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.

 

As you can see, there is a good likelihood that you might enjoy the ALF television show highest. When you haven’t seen the first season, you might want to catch up on it whenever possible. The initial episodes feature some terrific twists and turns that fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
