From Flak Magazine:
Why ALF? And why now?
When considering films and television shows to narrate, we had many options. There was Battle of Algiers, now stingingly relevant as the global fight against terrorism grinds onward. There was The Third Man, a challenging film of suspense and intrigue set in post-war Austria. And there was Combat: In Color, the Vic Morrow vehicle that explores the moral ambiguities of war.
Of these 20th century masterpieces, one body of work stood apart. Its name is “ALF,” and we invite you to download Flak’s audio commentary track for season one, episode one: The Pilot.
In it, the eponymous alien arrives on Earth, is deemed “heavy, hairy, and [capable of speech],” and goes after the family cat, Lucky.
This is an independent, unofficial audio commentary — we’re just three thoughtful fans with some audio equipment and a new hairy friend from Melmac, getting together to share our thoughts with other enthusiasts.
Did you guys catch the sieg heil there? What’s Willie trying to do? … He’s assuming that Alf comes from a planet where the Nazis won.— Flak Magazine,
