A super-intelligent, fast-talking monster, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed in a Southern California garage. His ship is beyond repair; he is ugly, short, he has a nasty temper and he’s, well, pretty unique. So what is a concerned family to do? Why, accept the alien meat out of an airtight box, of course, and revel in the crude humor that accompanies this oddball.
What really makes this show work is its witty writing and its ability to draw you in. 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 unique take on live television 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 head of an unsuspecting citizen. The”body” then begins to wander while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In each episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we encounter from the show join the fun. It’s like being a part of an all-star team of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There’s something for everyone here, people, from twists with major characters to humorous one-liners targeted at everyone.
I have seen some people 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 could be somewhat misleading. The premise of Orphan Ship was that an unidentified ship crashed on a planet and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded with no way of travel. In the ALF TV series, the ship landed on earth 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 wealthy but bizarre character started a company to mine for artifacts in various lost civilizations.
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 showcased in each subsequent season.
So, if you like your science fiction television shows just a little bit edgy, then the ALF TV series may be for you. It features some very exciting story elements that keep you interested in what is 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, which makes 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 now. Two of the main characters, Jay and Paul, are played by the incredible Kevin Pollack and Brian Price. They have superb functions as both chief characters, as well as 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 chance that you may enjoy the ALF television show highest. When you haven’t seen the first season, you may choose to catch up on it as soon as possible. The initial episodes feature some great twists and turns that fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
