Alf Flexing

A super-intelligent, fast-talking creature, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed at a Southern California garage. His ship is beyond repair; he is ugly, short, he’s got a nasty temper and he is, well, pretty unique. So what’s a concerned family to do? Why, take the alien meat out of an airtight box, of course, and enjoy the crude comedy 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 humor. 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 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 series is that a bald, middle-aged scientist, played by Baer, implants artificial intelligence in 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 come across 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 everyone here, folks, from spins with major characters to hilarious one-liners aimed at everyone.

 

I have seen some people 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 would 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 with no way 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 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 team of scientists, politicians, thieves, and such. She also happens to be the mom of the key 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 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 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 offers some of the best actors from television today. They have superb roles 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, featuring the likes of Kate Beckinsale, John Hartley, Craig Bierko, and Dexter Darden.

 

As you can see, there’s an excellent likelihood that you might enjoy the ALF television show highest. If you haven’t 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 that fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
