Andrea Olshan Alf Actor

A super-intelligent, fast-talking creature, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed at a Southern California garage. His ship is beyond repair; he is ugly, short, he has a nasty temper and he’s, well, fairly unique. So what is 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.

 

Produced 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 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 in a club in Van Nuys, but their distinctive take on live television 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 from 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 is like being part of an all-star team of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There’s something for everybody here, folks, from spins with major characters to humorous one-liners aimed at everyone.

 

I’ve seen some people 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 assumption 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. From the ALF TV series, the ship landed on ground before being salvaged and later discovered 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.

 

From the show, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and the like. She also happens to be the mother of the main characters, Jay (Kenny Johnson), Paul (Scott Adsit), Dean (Kevin Pollack), and Simon (Glenn Hower). This crew of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of the series, battling the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season one featured a few different characters than have been showcased in every subsequent season.

 

It features some very exciting story elements that keep you interested in what is going on in each episode. Most of the content is written in a script and filmed using the same effects and special effects as regular films, making it feel like a legitimate science fiction program.

 

As well as featuring a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also offers some of the best actors from television today. Two of the main characters, Jay and Paul, are played with the Unbelievable Kevin Pollack and Brian Price. They have superb functions as both main characters, in addition to memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. These great celebrities 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. When you have not seen the first season, you might choose to catch up on it whenever possible. The first episodes feature some terrific twists and turns that fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
