Does anyone in Hollywood HAVE AN ORIGINAL THOUGHT LEFT IN THEIR HEAD?
Apparently not.... because they're remaking or 'rebooting' everything!
Will & Grace, Roseanne, Murphy Brown, Charmed, Buffy The Vampire Slayer ...maybe Frazier?
And now, ALF? Seriously....WTF!
Warner Bros. is apparently the devil incarnate that is responsible for this proposed reboot of ALF. The premise of the reboot would be that ALF has spent the last 25 years in a facility at Area 51 and he's released and walks around commenting on everything.
ALF, for those that don't know, stands for Alien Life Form. The premise of the original show that aired from 1986-1990 was this: ALF was out in his spaceship patrolling for his home planet Melmac. While he was gone, his planet was destroyed because of nuclear war. So ALF followed an amateur radio signal he picked up and ended up crash landing in the California garage of the Tanner family.
The family took ALF in so he can try to fix his spaceship and leave. But, after ALF called the White House to try to warn the President (as Willie Tanner, the dad of the family) about the dangers of nuclear war, the Alien Task Force was dispatched to find ALF and bring him in.
The series centered around the Tanners trying to keep the Alien Task Force and their nosy neighbors from finding ALF, and ALF learning about the Earth, humans and their odd customs, including keeping cats as pets, because ALF likes to EAT cats.
So, Warner Brothers, here's a message for you. NO! Leave ALF alone! It was perfect in its original form!
