Anne’s Home 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’s ugly, short, he’s got a nasty temper and he’s, well, pretty unique. So what’s a concerned family to do? Why, accept the alien meat from an airtight box, of course, and revel in the crude humor that accompanies this oddball.

 

What really makes this series 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 comedy. They 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 bar 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 head of an unsuspecting citizen. The”body” then begins 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 is something for everyone here, people, from spins with major characters to humorous one-liners aimed at everyone.

 

I have seen some people 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 would be somewhat misleading. The assumption of Orphan Ship was that an unknown ship crashed on earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded with no way of travel. In the ALF TV series, the boat 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 rich but eccentric character started a company to mine for artifacts in various lost civilizations.

 

In the series, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag team of scientists, politicians, thieves, and such. 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 team of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of the series, battling 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’s going on in every episode. The majority of the content is written in a script and filmed with the same effects and special effects as regular movies, making 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 best actors from television now. Two of the main characters, Jay and Paul, are played by the Unbelievable Kevin Pollack and Brian Price. They have superb functions as the two main 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 might enjoy the ALF television series premier. If you haven’t seen the first season, you might want to catch up on it as soon as possible. The initial episodes feature some terrific twists and turns that fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
