Storyline

ALF and Kate's mom are arguing about TV. Kate's mom thinks ALF's favorite soap opera, Midwest General, is sleaze, and shows him her favorite, One World to Hope For, which ALF thinks is boring. Angered, ALF argues that he could write a better script for the series than the writers are coming up with. So ALF actually writes a script and sends it in. The production company actually films ALF's script that bears not-so-subtle similarities to the situation at the Tanners' house... Written by Toni Tapola, Finland

Goofs

When Kate sits down on the sofa and props her feet on the coffee table, the soles of her shoes are clean. Later in the same scene, when the camera shows her propped up feet again, there is black spot on the sole of her right shoe. Clearly she walked around between takes and something got on the bottom of her shoe. See more »
