  • The episode that wasn't really all that exciting but really rather sad

    6.0
    This was not one of the best episodes. It starts out funny then it starts getting sad when Skip and Rhonda contact ALF to invite him to stay with them on a planet they bought...The ending was bad because the series ends with ALF getting caught and we don't know what happens to him until 6 years later.
  • very well done on how to end an episode with out killing anyone.

    best way to end a good show it makes it easy to bring the show back at anytime without having to think up a new character and very well writen by the writers who now how to write episoeds the old way best shi hi comedy ever made wish they could bring it back or even make new episodes where alf returns to earth in a different centry where all kids are grown up and have kids off there own but this time alf brings his family back with him for one last visit to pay respect to those who have passed on.moreless
  • even through project: alf aired in 1996, after the season 4 cliffhanger series finale, alf kind of went of the radar for 15 years, until the release of the alf seasons on dvd. this episode set up an execellent 5th season but NBC makes alot of bad decisionmoreless

    even through project: alf aired in 1996, after the season 4 cliffhanger series finale, alf kind of went of the radar for 15 years, until the release of the alf seasons on dvd. this episode set up an execellent 5th season but NBC makes alot of bad decisions.

    in my opinion i think alf could have went to season 7 0r 8 if NBC didnt cancel it. i guess NBC wanted to move into a different direction. at the time the golden girls was there stongest tv comedy so in a way alf was second.

    if they did ever want to have a reunion episode or something, most of the actors would be way to old for it.moreless
  • This ep. meant the definite end of the series. After watching this episode it was crystal clear there'd be no more ALF anymore.

    ... and this at the age of eleven!! (back then when this episode aired originally). I've been a total addict of this show and have watched each and every episode. Seeing ALF getting arrested really made me cry! Why did they do that? I mean the series would have been over even if he'd left the planet. I mean c'mon this is supposed to be a comedy show. Why do you make people cry? Especially at the series finale? That's an unnerving moment anyways why making it extra painful?



    Anyhow - in my opinion Alf would have deserved another type of "retirement".moreless

    • This episode originally had a "To Be Continued" caption before the end credits. This is removed in syndication and on the Region 1 DVD sets but the Region 2 DVD sets do include the caption.

    • This episode was suppose to conclude the next season leaving a cliffhanger but it never worked that way. NBC decided to cancel the show. In the last scene, ALF then gets picked up by the alien task force and what happens next you say? Well in Feb. 1996 a TV-movie was made (oddly for ABC instead of NBC) to show that ALF wasn't hurt. Also none of the original supporting cast was in this reunion movie. According to the TV-movie, the Tanners were taken away by the Alien Task Force and put into the Witness Protection Program.
