Alf Dafre – Sto Tuft

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’s got a nasty temper and he’s, well, pretty unique. So what’s 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. Created by two guys that are friends, Matt Baer and Jason Hawes, the two teamed up in the early 1990s to create this oddball comedy. They started doing their own humorous 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 unique take on live tv is unique in that it takes you right into the middle of the action – or as some may say,” in the know.”

 

The premise 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 wander while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In each 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 team of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There’s something for everybody here, people, from spins with major characters to hilarious one-liners aimed at everyone.

 

I’ve seen some folks 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 premise of Orphan Ship was that an unidentified boat crashed on a planet 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 found to be owned 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 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 appears to be the mom of the main characters, Jay (Kenny Johnson), Paul (Scott Adsit), Dean (Kevin Pollack), and Simon (Glenn Hower). This crew 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 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 using the very same effects and special effects as regular films, which makes it feel like a legitimate science fiction program.

 

In addition to 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 Unbelievable Kevin Pollack and Brian Price. They have superb roles as both main 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 may want to catch up on it whenever possible. The first episodes feature some great twists and turns which fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
