Alf Happy Birthday

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, fairly unique. So what is a concerned family to do? Why, accept the alien meat from 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. Produced 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 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 bar in Van Nuys, but their distinctive take 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 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 come across from the show join the fun. It is like being part of an all-star team of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There’s something for everyone here, folks, from spins with major characters to hilarious one-liners aimed at everyone.

 

I’ve seen some folks compare the ALF TV series to an Orphan Ship, which is of course 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 earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded without any way of travel. In the ALF TV series, the ship landed on earth 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 cultures that were lost.

 

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

 

It features some very exciting story elements that keep you interested in what’s going on in each episode. The majority 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 greatest actors from television today. They have superb functions as both main characters, as well as memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. These fantastic celebrities easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.

 

As you can see, there’s an excellent likelihood that you might enjoy the ALF television series premier. If you have not seen the first season, you might want to catch up on it whenever possible. The first episodes feature some great twists and turns that fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
