Tread Perilously - ‘Alf: Consider Me Gone’

Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.

This Week: Alf's "Consider Me Gone"

Tread Perilously's month of series finales continues with the final 21 minutes of Alf, an episode they had to call "Consider Me Gone."

When Alf gets a message from Rhonda and Skip, he prepares to leave the Tanners and join his friends as they head for New Melmac. Meanwhile, the United States Air Force has intercepted the message and begins to hunt for the alien living among humans. Back at the Tanner home, the family throws the world's saddest goodbye part for Alf. But soon, it is time to make for Will Rogers State Park, where Alf will have a date with destiny. Will he escape the Earth or end up a lab experiment?

Erik begins to devise a better Alf impression while Justin searches for a way to sound like Max Wright. They also imagine Alf turned down the chance to be the Herald of Galactus when the planet-eater came for Melmac. The discussion quickly veers on to Cobra Kai and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. The "International Date Line" joke gets dissected. Justin turns Alf's dream for New Melmac into a punishing plantation nightmare. Erik tries to explain the Alf Extended Television Universe, and the pair reveal what it will take for them to finally watch Small Wonder.
