Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Before becoming a spokes-puppet for a long-distance company in a recent series of commercials, ALF starred in his own 1986-90 hit sitcom on NBC. Paul Fusco -- the show's creator and executive producer -- voiced the brown, furry, long-nosed space traveler from Melmac known as Gordon Shumway. When Gordon crash-lands on a suburban rooftop, Willie Tanner (Max Wright) welcomes him into the family, hides him from the military, and renames him ALF, for "Alien Life Form." (This is TV.) Other than his penchant for eating cats and annoying Willie, ALF makes himself at home among the Tanners, who include wife Kate (Anna Schedeen), daughter Lynn (Andrea Elson), and son Brian (Benji Gregory). Since harboring an alien can sometimes be dangerous, ALF is forced to spend most of his time in the Tanners' attic or garage, keeping hidden from the neighboring Ochmoneks, Trevor (John LaMotta) and Raquel (Liz Sheridan). The main appeal of the series was ALF's decidedly non-alien take on human occurrences, such as calling the president to offer his thoughts on nuclear weapons in "Pennsylvania 6-5000," befriending and dating a blind woman in "For Your Eyes Only," and submitting scripts to his favorite daytime serial in "A Little Bit of Soap." Television mainstay Anne Meara had a four-episode guest stint as Kate's mother, Dorothy, in Season 1. And she must have enjoyed herself, because she eventually went on to write an episode for the series' fourth season. Also popping up in Season 1 episodes are football star Joe Namath (as himself in the episode "Jump"), as well as Bob Newhart Show refugees Bill Daily (in the hilarious "Going Out of My Head Over You") and Marcia Wallace (as schoolteacher Mrs. Lyman in the episodes "Weird Science" and "It Isn't Easy...Bein' Green").

I recorded this show through out its entire history, so I was really amazed by the heavy handed editing done here. A direct comparison of DVD and taped episode(s) showed me that lines and whole scenes were left off the DVD. Why? You'd think they would have found additional material, not cut stuff. I'm very dissappointed and will not get SEASON TWO, if and/or when it comes out.

I grew up watching this show and loved it! I am so excited to see it on DVD!!! This is a great show that you CAN actually watch with the whole family, (unlike alot of the junk on TV today), and you as an adult will enjoy too.

My kids absolutely LOVED ALF! My 12 year laughed so hard he fell off the couch. The comedy is new to both him and his 16 year old sister. We can't wait for Season Two to be released. This will make a great gift!

This is one of those old '80's sitcoms that you're either gonna enjoy for being just that, or hate because it's not your "thing." The plausibility of an alien crash landing in suburbia unobserved except by the homeowners of his crash site is ludicrous, but the situational comedy (sitcom) elements are well supplied by this furry "fish out of water." If not for the main character's tendency to be crude (burping and other bodily functions) and sassiness, it would a suitable children's distraction (and probably is anyway considering the vulgarity of most children's entertainment lately), but many adults will not find much value in the episodes other than some sense of nostalgia for a show from their childhood.

I remember watching Alf when I was little. It came out in the '80s but I remember watching it in the '90s on TV and was sooo sad when it got cut off the air. I was waiting for it to come out on DVD and bought it right away! You will love this show even if you have never seen it before. Alf is really fun and cool! He is so likable for being an alien. If you read a review about this show and think it is just another corny little sitcom that wasn't around for very long, you are wrong! It is so not like that. FYI, it was on for four long seasons. Pretty good compared to some other shows! It isn't that often when a show comes around that is that funny and for the entire family. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Alf. He is just a cool little funny guy. I still love Alf and probably will always love Alf!
