When Essays Have 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’s ugly, short, he has a nasty temper and he is, well, fairly unique. So what’s a concerned family to do? Why, accept the alien meat from an airtight box, of course, and enjoy the crude humor that accompanies this oddball.

 

Created 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 humorous 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 club in Van Nuys, but their unique take on live tv is unique in that it takes you right into the center of the action – or as some might 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 head of an unsuspecting citizen. The”body” then begins to ramble while also exploring strange, alternate worlds. In every episode, new characters are introduced and old characters we come across from the show join the fun. It is like being a part of an all-star group of Marvel comic book writers and TV producers! There’s 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 show to an Orphan Ship, which is of course a humorous science fiction concept that has nothing to do with this creation. However, that comparison could be somewhat misleading. The premise of Orphan Ship was that an unidentified ship crashed on a planet and hundreds of its passengers were left stranded without any means of travel. From the ALF TV series, the boat landed on earth 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 crew of misfits becomes the unlikely heroes of this series, battling the evils that threaten to overwhelm the world. Season one featured a few different characters than have been featured 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. Most 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 legitimate science fiction program.

 

As well as featuring a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, the ALF TV series also offers some of the greatest actors from television now. They have superb roles as the two chief characters, in addition to memorable supporting casts such as Maya Rudolph, Kaya Scodelario, and Michael Chiklis. These great actors easily steal the show, as each character is brilliantly portrayed.

 

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