Alf Pod

A super-intelligent, fast-talking monster, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed in a Southern California garage. His ship is beyond repair; he is ugly, short, he’s got a nasty temper and he’s, well, fairly unique. So what is a concerned family to do? Why, take the alien meat from an airtight box, of course, and enjoy the crude humor that accompanies this oddball.

 

What really makes this series 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 started doing their own funny writing and sketch comedy shows so as to put food on the table for their families. It all began with a live comedy show in a club in Van Nuys, but their distinctive 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 premise 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 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 everyone here, folks, from twists 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 unidentified boat crashed on a planet and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded without any means 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 eccentric character started a company to mine for artifacts in various lost civilizations.

 

In the show, 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 key 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 featured in each subsequent season.

 

It features some very exciting story elements that keep you interested in what’s going on in every episode. The majority of the content is written in a script and filmed using the same effects and special effects as regular movies, making it feel like a legitimate science fiction program.

 

As well as incorporating a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also features some of the best actors from television today. They have superb functions as both chief characters, in addition to 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 an excellent likelihood that you might enjoy the ALF television show highest. When you haven’t seen the first season, you may choose 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.
