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 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 revel in the crude comedy that accompanies this oddball.
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 started with a live comedy show at a club in Van Nuys, but their unique spin on live tv is unique in that it takes you right into the center 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 in the mind of an unsuspecting citizen. The”body” then begins 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 is 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 humorous one-liners targeted at everyone.
I’ve 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 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 means of travel. In the ALF TV series, the ship landed on ground 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 cultures that were lost.
This team of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of the series, combating 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 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 movies, making it feel like a legitimate science fiction program.
In addition to featuring a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also offers some of the greatest actors from television now. They have superb roles as the two chief characters, in addition to memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis.
As you can see, there is a good chance that you may enjoy the ALF television series premier. When you have not seen the first season, you may want 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.
