Ray Meagher Alf Stewart

A super-intelligent, fast-talking creature, 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, pretty 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.

 

What really makes this series work is its witty writing and its ability to draw you in. 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 in order to put food on the table for their families. It all began with a live comedy show in 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 may say,” in the know.”

 

The premise of the ALF TV series 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 wander while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In each episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we come across from the show join the fun. It is like being part of an all-star team of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There is something for everyone here, folks, from twists with major characters to humorous one-liners targeted at everyone.

 

I have seen some people compare the ALF TV show 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 premise of Orphan Ship was that an unidentified 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 wealthy but eccentric 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. 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 the 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 just 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 every episode. The majority of the content is written in a script and filmed with the same effects and special effects as regular films, which makes it feel like a valid 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 today. They have superb functions as both chief characters, in addition to 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 great celebrities easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.

 

As you can see, there’s a good likelihood that you might enjoy the ALF television series premier. If you have not seen the first season, you may choose to catch up on it whenever possible. The initial episodes feature some great twists and turns which fans will certainly be talking about for years to come.
