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 is, well, fairly unique. So what is a concerned family to do? Why, take the alien meat out of an airtight box, of course, and revel in the crude comedy 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 humor. They started doing their own funny writing and sketch comedy shows so as to put food on the table for their families. It all started with a live comedy show in a club in Van Nuys, but their distinctive spin on live tv is unique in that it takes you right into the center of the action – or as some might say,” in the know.”

 

The premise 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 starts to wander while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In each episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we encounter from the series 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, folks, from spins with major characters to hilarious 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 creation. However, that comparison would be somewhat misleading. The assumption of Orphan Ship was that an unidentified 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 ground before being salvaged and later discovered 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 cultures that were lost.

 

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 this series, combating the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season one featured a few different characters than have been showcased in each 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 with the same effects and special effects as regular films, making it feel like a valid science fiction program.

 

In addition to incorporating 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 by the incredible Kevin Pollack and Brian Price. They have superb roles as both chief 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.

 

As you can see, there is an excellent likelihood that you might enjoy the ALF television series premier. When you haven’t seen the first season, you may want to catch up on it whenever possible. The first episodes feature some great twists and turns which fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
