Monster That Looks Like 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, fairly unique. So what’s a concerned family to do? Why, accept the alien meat from an airtight box, of course, and revel in the crude comedy 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 started doing their own funny writing and sketch comedy shows in order to put food on the table for their families. It all began with a live comedy show at a club in Van Nuys, but their unique spin 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 show is that a bald, middle-aged scientist, played by Baer, implants artificial intelligence in the mind of an unsuspecting citizen. The”body” then starts to ramble 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 is like being 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 humorous one-liners targeted 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 production. However, that comparison could 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 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 lost civilizations.

 

In the series, the character of Malory (Malorieff) is an archaeologist who works with a ragtag crew of scientists, politicians, thieves, and such. She also appears to be the mom 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 the series, combating 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 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 same effects and special effects as regular movies, making it feel like a legitimate science fiction program.

 

As well as 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 with the Unbelievable 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. The supporting cast is also fantastic, including the likes of Kate Beckinsale, John Hartley, Craig Bierko, and Dexter Darden. These fantastic celebrities easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.

 

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