Botania 1.7.10 Alf

A super-intelligent, fast-talking creature, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed at 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 out of an airtight box, of course, and enjoy the crude comedy 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 both started doing their own humorous writing and sketch comedy shows in order to put food on the table for their families. It all began with a live comedy show at a bar in Van Nuys, but their unique take on live television is unique in that it takes you right into the middle 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 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 everybody here, folks, from spins with major characters to humorous one-liners targeted 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 production. 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 way of travel. From the ALF TV series, the ship 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 lost civilizations.

 

From the series, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and such. 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 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 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, which makes it feel like a valid science fiction program.

 

As well as featuring a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also offers some of the greatest actors from television now. Two of the main characters, Jay and Paul, are played with the incredible 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. The supporting cast is also fantastic, including the likes of Kate Beckinsale, John Hartley, Craig Bierko, and Dexter Darden. These fantastic actors easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.

 

As you can see, there is 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 that fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
