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 has a nasty temper and he is, well, pretty unique. So what’s a concerned family to do? Why, accept the alien meat out of an airtight box, of course, and enjoy the crude comedy that accompanies this oddball.
They both started doing their own humorous writing and sketch comedy shows so as 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 television 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 head 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 come across 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 spins with major characters to humorous one-liners aimed at everyone.
I’ve 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 assumption of Orphan Ship was that an unidentified ship crashed on earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded with no way of travel. From 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 rich but bizarre 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 team of scientists, politicians, thieves, and the like. This team of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of this series, combating the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season one 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 is going on in every episode. The majority of the content is written in a script and filmed using the very same effects and special effects as regular films, which makes it feel like a legitimate science fiction program.
In addition to featuring 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. These fantastic actors easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.
As you can see, there’s a good likelihood that you may enjoy the ALF television show highest. When you have not seen the first season, you may want to catch up on it whenever possible. The initial episodes feature some great twists and turns that fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
