From the pre-eminent Onion AV Club DVD Reviews:
The finest puppet-centric sitcom ever made—beating out such pretenders as Madame’s Place—Alf introduced the world to the furry alien who would later go on to pimp long-distance calling services and will soon have his own cable talk show. ALF: Season One (Lions Gate) (Buy It!) collects the cat-chasing visitor’s earliest adventures, preserving for posterity every last wisecrack, along with Max Wright’s subtle variations on the same befuddled look. Ah, technology.
I know what GMC is getting for his birthday this year. To celebrate his mother’s intense childbirth pain I am going to buy her son a DVD collection of a TV show about an orange, feline-eating alien.
