Moutain High Alf

A super-intelligent, fast-talking monster, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed at a Southern California garage. His ship is beyond repair; he is ugly, short, he has a nasty temper and he’s, well, fairly unique. So what is 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.

 

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 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 unique 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 show is that a bald, middle-aged scientist, played by Baer, implants artificial intelligence in the head 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 series join the fun. It’s 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 spins 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 production. However, that comparison would be somewhat misleading. The assumption of Orphan Ship was that an unidentified ship crashed on earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded with no way 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 cultures that were lost.

 

She also happens to be the mother of the key characters, Jay (Kenny Johnson), Paul (Scott Adsit), Dean (Kevin Pollack), and Simon (Glenn Hower). This crew of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of this series, battling the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season 1 featured a few different characters than have been featured in each subsequent season.

 

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 using the very same effects and special effects as regular films, which makes it feel like a valid science fiction program.

 

As well as incorporating a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also features some of the greatest 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. These fantastic celebrities easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.

 

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