Alf Key

A super-intelligent, fast-talking monster, 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, accept the alien meat out of an airtight box, of course, and revel in the crude comedy that accompanies this oddball.

 

What really makes this series 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 in order 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 distinctive take on live television 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 show is that a bald, middle-aged scientist, played by Baer, implants artificial intelligence in the mind 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 series join the fun. It is like being a part of an all-star group 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 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 production. However, that comparison would be somewhat misleading. The assumption of Orphan Ship was that an unknown boat crashed on earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded without any means of travel. In the ALF TV series, the ship 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 eccentric character started a company to mine for artifacts in various lost civilizations.

 

This team 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 every 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 with the very 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 now. Two of the main characters, Jay and Paul, are played by the Unbelievable Kevin Pollack and Brian Price. 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, including 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’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 as soon as possible. The initial episodes feature some terrific twists and turns that fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
