Remember ALF? He’s back! In blog form.

Milhouse's Legendary ALF Pogs

Well, your votes are in, and the clear winner was ALF. Which, truth be told, makes me very happy because that means I get to give this blog post the BEST TITLE EVER.

Seriously, what was I going to call it if Gilligan’s Island won? “It’s Actually a Peninsula?” No. This is much better for all of us.

It also makes me happy because the more I reflect on ALF the more excited I am to revisit it. I’d say more now, but I might as well wait since I’ll be reviewing every episode of this stupid show between now and the day I die / get tired of this blog.

So, starting…soon(?) I’ll be reviewing one episode of ALF per week.

However, there was also a lot of interest in my “It’s Complicated…” approach, which would see me reviewing a show that I have a love-hate relationship with. And I admit, I kind of enjoy writing things like that too.

For this reason, I’m also going to plan on reviewing Red Dwarf in its entirety. I’m not quite sure how the scheduling will work out. Maybe I’ll do a season of ALF, then switch over to Red Dwarf for a series (they run from 3 – 8 episodes, so they’re not very long), and then back. But we’ll see.

So, yes. Thank you all for making your voices heard here and on Facebook. I’m hoping this can start next week, but no promises quite yet.

Get your alien puppets and dishes of cat meat ready. ALF‘s back, baby!!

    Major props to you, good sir, for that fan-fucking-tastic title. What a clever boy, you are. It made me smile.

    There are few moments when Milhouse was more obviously a total geek than this. “Thrillho” comes close, of course…

    And I’m looking forward to Alf. I can’t believe I actually wrote that sentence. I used to have a book of single panel Alf cartoons which I had for many years before I actually got to watch the show. I knew WHAT Alf was but had never experienced him/it. All the cat-eating gags in the comic book went right over my head. I don’t know exactly what I got out of it, now that I think about it, but I was a kid and I loved that book. *shrugs*

      Wow. I’d love to see that book, if you remember what it’s called or find it online or anything. I had a puppet of ALF dressed up as Bruce Springsteen, for no reason that I can identify.
