Mapleleaf Alf

A super-intelligent, fast-talking creature, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed in a Southern California garage. His ship is beyond repair; he’s ugly, short, he has a nasty temper and he’s, well, pretty unique. So what’s a concerned family to do? Why, take the alien meat from an airtight box, of course, and revel in the crude humor 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 humor. 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 in a club in Van Nuys, but their unique spin 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 premise of the ALF TV show is that a bald, middle-aged scientist, played by Baer, implants artificial intelligence in the head of an unsuspecting citizen. The”body” then begins to ramble 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 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 hilarious one-liners targeted at everyone.

 

I’ve 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 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. In the ALF TV series, the boat landed on ground 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 wealthy but bizarre character started a company to mine for artifacts in various lost civilizations.

 

In the show, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag team of scientists, politicians, thieves, and the like. This team of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of the series, battling the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season 1 featured a few different characters than have been featured in every subsequent season.

 

So, if you like your science fiction television shows 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’s 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, making it feel like a valid science fiction program.

 

As well as featuring a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also features 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 both chief characters, as well as memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. These fantastic celebrities easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.

 

As you can see, there’s a good chance that you may enjoy the ALF television show highest. If you haven’t seen the first season, you might want to catch up on it whenever possible. The initial episodes feature some terrific twists and turns that fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
