The Garden Alf

A super-intelligent, fast-talking monster, ALF (the Alien Life Form) crash-landed in a Southern California garage. His ship is beyond repair; he is ugly, short, he’s got a nasty temper and he is, well, fairly 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 comedy that accompanies this oddball.

 

What really makes this show 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 both 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 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 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 begins to wander while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In every episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we come across from the series join the fun. It is like being a part of an all-star group of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There is something for everyone here, people, from twists 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 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 earth and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded without any means of travel. From the ALF TV series, the ship landed on ground 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 wealthy but bizarre character started a company to mine for artifacts in various cultures that were lost.

 

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 team of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of this series, combating the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season 1 featured a few different 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 every episode. Most of the content is written in a script and filmed using the same effects and special effects as regular movies, 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 now. They have superb roles as both main characters, as well as memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. The supporting cast is also fantastic, featuring the likes of Kate Beckinsale, John Hartley, Craig Bierko, and Dexter Darden.

 

As you can see, there is a good likelihood 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 first episodes feature some great twists and turns which fans will surely be talking about for years to come.
