Alf Marshall

A super-intelligent, fast-talking monster, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed in a Southern California garage. His ship is beyond repair; he’s ugly, short, he has a nasty temper and he is, well, pretty unique. So what is a concerned family to do? Why, take the alien meat out of 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 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 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 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 from 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’s like being part of an all-star group of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There is something for everybody here, folks, from twists with major characters to humorous one-liners aimed at everyone.

 

I’ve seen some people 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 could be somewhat misleading. The premise of Orphan Ship was that an unidentified boat 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 found 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.

 

From the series, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and such. She also happens to be the mom of the main characters, Jay (Kenny Johnson), Paul (Scott Adsit), Dean (Kevin Pollack), and Simon (Glenn Hower). 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 diverse characters than have been showcased 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 using the very same effects and special effects as regular films, making it feel like a legitimate science fiction program.

 

In addition to incorporating 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 the two main characters, as well as memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. 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 series premier. When you haven’t seen the first season, you might choose to catch up on it as soon as possible. The first episodes feature some terrific twists and turns that fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
