Alf Erickson Obituary

A super-intelligent, fast-talking creature, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed in a Southern California garage. His ship is beyond repair; he is ugly, short, he’s got a nasty temper and he is, 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.

 

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 funny writing and sketch comedy shows in order to put food on the table for their families. It all started with a live comedy show at 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 begins to wander 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 is like being a part of an all-star team of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There is something for everybody here, people, from twists with major characters to humorous one-liners targeted at everyone.

 

I’ve seen some folks compare the ALF TV series to an Orphan Ship, which is obviously 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 without any way of travel. From the ALF TV series, the boat 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 wealthy but bizarre character started a company to mine for artifacts in various lost civilizations.

 

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 featured in every subsequent season.

 

It features some very exciting story elements that keep you interested in what’s going on in each episode. Most of the content is written in a script and filmed with the very 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 functions as the two chief characters, in addition to memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. The supporting cast is also fantastic, featuring the likes of Kate Beckinsale, John Hartley, Craig Bierko, and Dexter Darden. These great celebrities easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.

 

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