Critic Reviews for ALF Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

[ALF is] the story of a smart- aleck creature from outer space with a big nose that crash-lands into a garage and moves right into Max Wright's average suburban family with the stupidest jokes in the galaxy.

ALF wasn't the total embodiment of the 1980s nor was it the biggest series, but it does capture much of the era.

ALF the alien did endear himself to me with one habit: He likes to eat cats. But otherwise, ALF's just another UFO-unimpressive fuzzy object.

ALF himself generates some laughs, and there's just enough silly insanity in the show to make it worthwhile. It also has one of the most unintentionally depressing series finales ever.

It's the season of family sitcoms, featuring hordes of adorable little ones. One of the better, simply because it's kind of cute and a bit offbeat, is ''ALF,'' making its debut on NBC at 8 this evening.

This is another of those TV comedies that simply aren't funny.

Aug 28, 2018 | Full Review…

This creature will be fun to have around if he makes plenty of snide, acerbic cracks about earthly social and political foibles.
