An Excellent Care Alf

A super-intelligent, fast-talking monster, 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, fairly unique. So what is a concerned family to do? Why, accept 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 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 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 head 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 encounter 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, people, from spins with major characters to hilarious one-liners aimed at everyone.

 

I have 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 creation. However, that comparison would be somewhat misleading. The premise of Orphan Ship was that an unknown ship crashed on a planet and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded without any means of travel. In 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 rich 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 the like. This team of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of this series, battling 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. The majority 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 offers some of the best actors from television now. They have superb functions as both chief characters, as well as memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. The supporting cast is also fantastic, including the likes of Kate Beckinsale, John Hartley, Craig Bierko, and Dexter Darden.

 

As you can see, there is a good likelihood 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 whenever possible. The initial episodes feature some terrific twists and turns that fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
