New Age Alf Wellington

A super-intelligent, fast-talking monster, 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 out of 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 comedy. They 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 bar in Van Nuys, but their distinctive take 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 assumption of the ALF TV series 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 each episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we encounter from the show join the fun. It’s like being 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 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 would be somewhat misleading. The premise of Orphan Ship was that an unknown ship crashed on earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded with no means of travel. In the ALF TV series, the ship 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 rich but bizarre character started a company to mine for artifacts in various cultures that were lost.

 

This team of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of this series, battling the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season one featured a few diverse characters than have been showcased 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 is going on in each episode. Most 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 legitimate science fiction program.

 

As well as 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 the two main characters, in addition to 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 is a good likelihood that you might enjoy the ALF television series premier. If you have not seen the first season, you may want to catch up on it whenever possible. The initial episodes feature some terrific twists and turns that fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
