Alf License 9196

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 is a concerned family to do? Why, take the alien meat from 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 both 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 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 may 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 starts to wander while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In every episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we encounter from the show join the fun. It’s like being part of an all-star team of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There’s something for everybody here, folks, from spins with major characters to hilarious one-liners targeted at everyone.

 

I have 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 production. However, that comparison could be somewhat misleading. The assumption of Orphan Ship was that an unknown boat crashed on a planet and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded with no way of travel. From 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 lost civilizations.

 

In the series, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew 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 showcased in every 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 very same effects and special effects as regular films, 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 greatest actors from television now. They have superb roles as the two 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 is a good chance that you may enjoy the ALF television series premier. When you haven’t seen the first season, you may choose to catch up on it as soon as possible. The first episodes feature some terrific twists and turns which fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
