Crazy Boxer 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 is ugly, short, he’s got a nasty temper and he is, well, fairly 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.

 

What really makes this series work is its witty writing and its ability to draw you in. Created 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 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 in a bar in Van Nuys, but their distinctive take on live tv is unique in that it takes you right into the middle of the action – or as some may 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 mind of an unsuspecting citizen. The”body” then starts 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 is like being a part of an all-star team of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There is something for everybody here, people, from twists with major characters to humorous one-liners aimed at everyone.

 

I have seen some folks compare the ALF TV series to an Orphan Ship, which is obviously 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 unknown ship crashed on earth 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 possessed 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 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 such. She also happens to be the mom of the key 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 different characters than have been showcased in every 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 very same effects and special effects as regular films, making it feel like a valid science fiction program.

 

In addition to 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 by the incredible Kevin Pollack and Brian Price. They have superb roles as the two chief 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 may 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 that fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
