Alf Wiki

A super-intelligent, fast-talking monster, 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’s, well, fairly unique. So what’s 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. 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 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 distinctive spin 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 from 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 group of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There’s something for everybody here, folks, from twists with major characters to humorous one-liners aimed at everyone.

 

I’ve seen some folks compare the ALF TV series to an Orphan Ship, which is obviously a humorous science fiction concept that has nothing to do with this creation. However, that comparison would be somewhat misleading. The assumption of Orphan Ship was that an unknown boat crashed on earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded with no means 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 rich but eccentric character started a company to mine for artifacts in various cultures that were lost.

 

In the series, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and the like. She also appears to be the mother of the main 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, combating the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season one 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’s going on in each episode. Most of the content is written in a script and filmed with the same effects and special effects as regular movies, which makes it feel like a legitimate science fiction program.

 

In addition to incorporating a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also features 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. The supporting cast is also fantastic, featuring the likes of Kate Beckinsale, John Hartley, Craig Bierko, and Dexter Darden.

 

As you can see, there’s a good chance that you might enjoy the ALF television series premier. If you have not seen the first season, you might want to catch up on it as soon as possible. The initial episodes feature some great twists and turns which fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
