Alf Dibujo

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 is, well, pretty unique. So what is 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 comedy. 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 at a bar in Van Nuys, but their unique 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 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 every episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we come across from the series join the fun. It is like being a part of an all-star group of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There’s something for everyone here, people, from spins with major characters to humorous one-liners targeted 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 creation. However, that comparison could be somewhat misleading. The assumption of Orphan Ship was that an unidentified ship crashed on earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded with no means of travel. In the ALF TV series, the ship 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 wealthy but bizarre character started a company to mine for artifacts in various lost civilizations.

 

From the series, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and the like. She also appears to be the mom of the key characters, Jay (Kenny Johnson), Paul (Scott Adsit), Dean (Kevin Pollack), and Simon (Glenn Hower). This team of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of this 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 is going on in each episode. Most of the content is written in a script and filmed with the same effects and special effects as regular films, which makes it feel like a legitimate science fiction program.

 

In addition to featuring a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also features 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 both 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 a good 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 as soon as possible. The first episodes feature some great twists and turns which fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
