Synopsis


The cozy, respectable, and rather dull existence of the Tanner family is inexorably altered when an alien spaceship crashes into the family's garage in the opening episode of ALF's first season. Out pops a short, furry, orange-haired, and long-nosed space creature, who explains that he is Gordon Shumway from the recently destroyed planet Melmac. Nicknamed ALF (Alien Life Form) by the Tanners, our hero is invited to join the household, though before long, dad Willie Tanner (Max Wright) wishes he'd turned ALF over to the authorities. Not only does ALF stick his huge nose into everyone's business, but he also breaks everything he touches and eats like food is going out of style -- and he never tires of trying to chow down on the family's pet cat, Lucky. Meanwhile, Willie Tanner, his wife, Kate (Anne Schedeen), and their kids, Lynn (Andrea Elson) and Brian (Benji Gregory), work overtime trying to hide ALF's presence from their boorish neighbors, Trevor and Raquel Ochmonek (John LaMotta, Liz Sheridan). Additionally, the Tanners attempt to keep ALF a secret from Kate's overbearing mother, Dorothy (Anne Meara), though she eventually tumbles to his existence and agrees to keep mum. Though ALF was not the most popular sitcom on NBC's 1986-1987 schedule (that honor was bestowed upon The Cosby Show), the series performed well in the ratings during its first season, ranking at number 28 right between Miami Vice and Hunter. ~ Hal Erickson

    I picked this up in hopes of enlightening my daughter, needless to say, she loves ALF now! ...but unfortunately the quality of this Boxset is subpar to say the least. The sound quality is pretty bad, enough so that my daughter even commented on it. And the episodes are not complete, they're taken from syndication airing! I hope maybe a company will release all the Seasons properly, until then I will refrain from buying the other seasons, disappointed, indeed.

    I saw this at the store and couldn't resist picking it up for such a great price. Alf was one of my favorite shows as a child but watching it as an adult I can now truly appreciate some of the jokes and subtle story lines that I missed when I was younger. While it is obviously dated it still is a great show to just sit down and watch that will bring you back to a simpler time.

    I love Alf! I forgot how funny it was. I used to watch this show when it was originally on. Then, it was on re-runs a few years back. I love watching it at home anytime I want. More special features would have been nice but, oh well.

    It was great to find these episodes on DVD so we can watch them anytime we want. Good price considering what it costs monthly to have a subscription to some online service that one might use to haves older shows such as this one available.

    I love Alf. I watched it all the time as a young adult, and I enjoyed it. I recently watched it on tv as reruns, and it still holds up particularly well. This box set will add a nice touch to my collection.

    Growing up Alf was my dad's favorite, he passed away a while back but when I saw the Season 1 DVD set, I figured I'd see what it was all about. Now I just need the rest.
