Beginning in 1986, this series is not that old, but I still enjoy it. This "Alien Life Form" had a down-to-earth humor that hit the spot. Years later, listening to Rush Limbaugh, I'm constantly and pleasantly surprised at how much Rush's voice sounds like Alf's. The characters of the Tanner Family who adopted Alf as a family member all sort of disappointed me, but really it was all for the best because the furry alien from the planet Melmac outstaged them, which is how it should've been. My favorite episode is the Alf Christmas Special, which combined multiple situations including Alf's helping deliver a baby on a stuck elevator. Nobody can surpass Johnny Carson in hosting "The Tonight Show," but if Alf had succeeded him, I would have been an avid late-night viewer.
