Alf Sees Another Alf

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

 

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 funny writing and sketch comedy shows so as to put food on the table for their families. It all started with a live comedy show in a club in Van Nuys, but their distinctive spin 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 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 begins to ramble while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In each episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we come across from the show join the fun. It’s like being a part of an all-star group of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There’s something for everybody here, people, from spins with major characters to hilarious one-liners aimed at everyone.

 

I have seen some folks compare the ALF TV show 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 premise of Orphan Ship was that an unidentified ship crashed on earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded without any way of travel. In the ALF TV series, the boat landed on earth before being salvaged and later found to be owned 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 show, 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, combating the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season 1 featured a few different characters than have been featured in every subsequent season.

 

So, if you like your science fiction tv shows a little bit edgy, then the ALF TV series may be for you. 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 with the same effects and special effects as regular films, making it feel like a valid 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 the two chief characters, in addition to memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. The supporting cast is also fantastic, featuring the likes of Kate Beckinsale, John Hartley, Craig Bierko, and Dexter Darden. These fantastic actors 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. If you have not 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 surely be talking about for years to come.
