Trivia

The opening credits is different from its normal theme, which includes three new sequences. See more »

Goofs

(at around 5 mins) Alf says, "Well that's good, Willie, because we don't cover hot tubs." Alf has lost his memory, and no one has addressed Willie by his first name at this point in the episode, so in his "Wayne Schlagel" persona, he shouldn't know Willie's name. See more »

Crazy Credits

Instead of ALF's normal laugh at the end of the closing credits, you hear ALF's Wayne Schlaegel laugh instead. See more »

A two-part clip show *already*?
24 March 2009 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

How is it possible that after only 15 episodes we get a clip show, and a two-parter, at that? Were this a truly genius American sitcom like Arrested Development, 15 episodes would contain more than enough pure gold for a clip show, but ALF is only a decent '80s sitcom. There's no defense in arguing that this was made in the 1980s - they did some very good TV shows at that time also, even if it wasn't "The Golden Age of TV" like the first decade of the new millennium: Red Dwarf started only a year after ALF and Quantum Leap another year later, Monty Python's Flying Circus was made over a decade *earlier*, as was Fawlty Towers (by some of the same people, not surprisingly) and Blackadder was on until 1989. Hmm... the better comedies were all British - positively shocking.
