Alf Riding A Unicorn

A super-intelligent, fast-talking creature, 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, pretty unique. So what’s a concerned family to do? Why, take the alien meat out of an airtight box, of course, and enjoy the crude humor 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 began with a live comedy show in 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 may say,” in the know.”

 

The assumption 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 starts to ramble while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In every episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we encounter from the series join the fun. It’s like being a 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 humorous one-liners targeted at everyone.

 

I have seen some folks compare the ALF TV show 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 premise of Orphan Ship was that an unknown ship crashed on earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded without any means of travel. From the ALF TV series, the boat landed on earth 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.

 

She also appears to be the mother of the key characters, Jay (Kenny Johnson), Paul (Scott Adsit), Dean (Kevin Pollack), and Simon (Glenn Hower). This team of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of the series, battling the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season one featured a few different characters than have been showcased in each subsequent season.

 

It features some very exciting story elements that keep you interested in what is going on in every episode. Most of the content is written in a script and filmed using the same effects and special effects as regular films, making it feel like a valid 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 today. They have superb roles as the two chief characters, in addition to memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. These great actors 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 haven’t seen the first season, you might choose to catch up on it as soon as possible. The first episodes feature some great twists and turns that fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
