Lakewood * Square 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 is, well, fairly unique. So what’s 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.

 

Created 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 both 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 at a club in Van Nuys, but their unique take on live tv is unique in that it takes you right into the center of the action – or as some may say,” in the know.”

 

The assumption 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 wander while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In every episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we come across from the show join the fun. It’s like being a 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 hilarious one-liners aimed 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 could be somewhat misleading. The assumption of Orphan Ship was that an unknown boat crashed on a planet and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded without any means of travel. From the ALF TV series, the boat landed on ground 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 wealthy 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 crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and the like. She also appears 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 this series, combating the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season 1 featured a few diverse characters than have been featured in every subsequent season.

 

It features some very exciting story elements that keep you interested in what’s going on in every episode. Most of the content is written in a script and filmed using 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 offers some of the best actors from television today. They have superb roles as both chief characters, as well as memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. The supporting cast is also fantastic, featuring the likes of Kate Beckinsale, John Hartley, Craig Bierko, and Dexter Darden. These great actors easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.

 

As you can see, there is an excellent chance that you might enjoy the ALF television series premier. When you have not seen the first season, you may choose to catch up on it whenever possible. The initial episodes feature some terrific twists and turns which fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
