Episode 14: A.L.F. Show Notes

Henry

  • Why is he trying to talk to a Pulsar?
  • This acting is not great
  • Every US sitcom from the late 80s and early 90s had this exact music
  • Canned laughter at all the wrong times
  • You just made that up
  • This is community theatre level acting
  • He hasn’t got lips
  • I had forgotten about the cat eating
  • The screaming made me laugh
  • I thought he didn’t want ALF to see him naked?
  • 80s teenager!
  • I’m conflicted, the idea is funny but this isn’t
  • He is hugging that kid way too much
  • I want to punch whoever cast the kid
  • The score is terrible
  • Are they trying to elicit sympathy??
  • Please tell me it is over?
  • Standard 80s end credits
  • This music would not be out of place in a medical show

Jeremy

  • Still frame
  • I think that’s legit 
  • Why would you shut it off??
  • What’s everyone’s problem?? Sounds cool!
  • Such a derp
  • Filming the mom out the shower are we Alf?
  • Can’t tell if the theme is ironic or for real?
  • Laugh track count
  • Oooooohh
  • You. Brought. It. Inside
  • Very true, should have left it outside
  • This is pretty uncomfortable
  • Haha noice
  • No one questioned ET
  • Human is an insult definitely
  • So mean
  • Woah he didn’t say he’d live with you
  • Pretty presumptuous, maybe he doesn’t want to live with you
  • How did they do Alf?
  • Ok, I like Alf
  • Such sarcasm
  • What? Why is she staring into their bathroom
  • Damn, what’s his problem
  • Is he freeloading?
  • Think that kids too old for Sesame Street
  • Knew he’d drink beer
  • He’s definitely not 6
  • He knows how just not the right parts?
  • Alien Task Force?
  • Edwards Air Force Base, nice
  • Surely this is confidential
  • Gordon?
  • Sounds like Henry…
  • Personal Assistants to Alf

Jennifer

  • Nice how it started at the beginning, can’t remember if that’s on every episode.
  • Theme song is very 80s US sitcom but also very 90s UK hospital Docu drama!
  • Willie hahaha lol
  • It so cheaply made that I got Crossroads vibes, ie the walls moved.
  • Cat food good alt to Cat. Not sure if that says something about Cat food in general…
  • I suppose in the 80s it was like the Muppets, but we got whole body shots. Funnily I don’t remember it being so obviously a little dude in a suit.
  • Lame 80s jokes
  • The parents are suitably stressed about the new situation.
  • Also, ALF sounds like Ron Swanson!
  • Comedy comes from the old man in a toddler suit.
  • Sentimental, drags on the heart strings
  • The only actor I know is the Dad, vague recognition of the actress who plays the daughter but I think that’s from this show.
  • Still better than ET!
