This was a popular show for good reason, but it's not all that. Definitely worth watching though.

ALF was a great show for family entertainment value, it was clean and was very original at the time with a main character who was a wise cracking alien, the cast was all really good and it was actually pretty funny most of the time.The show was quite unique in the fact that it combined the silliness of the Muppet's and the usual kitsch of prime time sitcoms. It's funny, it's well written, and with the use of a puppet and stage performance making it unique in sitcoms. ALF even had some heartfelt moments. Alf's lines throughout this shows generally made you laugh. Not to mention roll your eyes now and again. The humor was never vulgar, but often funny, a balance that many shows in this format often fail to strike. Better it had a brief but successful run rather than drag itself out. The way that the series ended was extremely disappointing.

Alf was a different show, it was hilarious and good acting considering most of the actors were not major actors. I've started to re-watch some the serious again.

This had to be the funniest show I had seen for a long time. I wish they would redo this show.
Alf had such great lines and he never gave the Tanners any peace. I loved it when he got dressed in drag and mimed to "Old Time Rock and Roll"
Also the episode where he imitated Tom Cruise.
Classic Comedy!!
