Anybody got the pics from the National Enquirer or whatever it was of the dad from Alf smoking crack or something to that effect?

never liked ALF.

Only communists and child molesters didn't like Alf.

You gonna eat that cat?

That's so awesome! And they said those 1800 collect ads would get him nowhere. You go ALF!

*crossing fingers that Mr. T will be next*

Will they have a live feed from Jail showing Willie shooting herion and pleasuring bubba?
2004-11-05 09:58:14 PM  
Didn't this show already air one episode about a year or so ago? I thought that it died already.
2004-11-05 09:59:23 PM  
No comment on the "unsuccessful retun" yet?
2004-11-05 09:59:43 PM  
nice simpsons reference
2004-11-05 09:59:48 PM  
What is POG form?
2004-11-05 10:00:47 PM  
Alf was cool, his co-stars were fed awful lines by bad writers. Alf is a real alien. It's true.

here's willie smokin' and being teh gay with some imposing looking black men. surreal

sorry, no pic OR html skillz
2004-11-05 10:01:15 PM  
Didn't this already happen?

Worst use ever of the cool tag.

There was never anything cool about ALF. Submitter needs to hop off, pronto.
2004-11-05 10:02:17 PM  
and PLEASE read the story with the pics. it's even worse than it looks...
2004-11-05 10:03:23 PM  
The Simpsons had an episode where Milhouse has Alf pogs and says, "He's POG form."
2004-11-05 10:05:31 PM  
This already happened, and it sucked.

What, am I in an ALFian time loop?
2004-11-05 10:05:57 PM  
Alf? Pogs? I thought 6th grade was dead and buried. And isn't the dad from Alf on one of those cop dramas?
/Secretly going over pog colection for Alf pogs....

"By the third season, I was completely wasted all the time. I, I lost all control of my bodily functions. They had to cut the crap out of my fur before each taping."
2004-11-05 10:08:19 PM  
Oh boy, will this show ever suck! Go away ALF!

At least I can take a little comfort in the fact that Ed Mcmahon will survive this farking debacle.
2004-11-05 10:08:44 PM  
I still have my ALF bubble gum cards. I also used to watch Starman and other such sci-fi shows, then spent the years after that watching X-Files. The aliens, they took over my brain!
2004-11-05 10:10:09 PM  
this isn't news. i downloaded an episode of "ALF's Hit Talk Show" a couple of months ago from tvt. it's totally unwatchable.

I second that! This show looks teh cool... if cool means lame.
2004-11-05 10:11:28 PM  
This kid should be the first guest on the new ALF show!

Oh man, that article is pure gold. Gold, I tell you!
2004-11-05 10:14:57 PM  
Cool? This is ALF. If you people would awake from the nostalgia-induced delirium you are in, you'd realize that ALF was a terrible sitcom based upon one of the worst ideas ever to come from TV-Land. ALF wasn't funny, he wasn't sassy, and he definately wasn't something the world needs brought back.

What's next? Blossom becomes "cool"?
2004-11-05 10:17:26 PM  
2004-11-05 10:17:39 PM  
Blossom isn't cool. Blossom is HOT!!!
2004-11-05 10:20:56 PM  
I don't care if you liked ALF or not -- that's one farking depressing article about Max Wright.

Don't read it if you value your little remaining faith in humanity.
2004-11-05 10:22:25 PM  
This show looks awesome. And by "awesome" I mean a fark-load of crap.
2004-11-05 10:22:35 PM  
Fukking-A. I hated that damned thing back then, and not a lot has changed since.
2004-11-05 10:25:13 PM  
One of my more surreal memories of the 80s was watching a "Make My Wish Come True" type show where some circling-the-drain terminal kid's wish was to talk to ALF on picturephone. Paul Fusco sounded like he stepped into hell.

Download the first episode from teh Intarweb and try to laugh. Just try. Now you understand why Max Wright smokes crack.
2004-11-05 10:29:04 PM  
Oh, and even Mayim Bialik can't believe she did "Blossom." She's studying neurosurgery.

And that other kid from Weird Science teaches university-level history and doesn't like to talk about Wyatt.

The rest, well, I'm just praying the "Breakfast Club" sequel gets written by Kevin Smith.

The world is not ready for Alf. Not yet.
2004-11-05 10:35:00 PM  
hey Willie!

hey, somebody post that picture of Marshall Mathers in an ALF tee shirt.
/teh funneh
2004-11-05 10:35:40 PM  
my favorite mayim bialik role was in an episode of "macgyver". she played a school girl who falls in with a crowd of 20-somethings who drink, do drugs and rob houses. they eventually try and kill her. fun.

favorite weird science line:

2004-11-05 10:37:08 PM  
Blossom was not hot. Six was hot. Oh yeah baby
2004-11-05 10:44:32 PM  
My favorite line from the original ALF series was when he got drunk and hung over and threw up in the bathroom ajoining the dinning room (where people could hear him) and the family is trying to eat and hears him go .. arghhhhhh ... and they nearly lose it.. and then they hear ALF say..

"Hey, I don't remember eating that"

Six was not hot. Joey was hot.

I feel his pain. The Plane of Growth was a real biatch in it's time, damn treehuggers.

Thank you Ted, that was the joke.

Not only did the submitter get the "cool" tag wrong, This is NOT a debut. This show has run before on TVland, Henry Winkler stopped by is a sketch that was not funny.
