Perhaps things are different in Sweden, but "basic" cable (which does usually include WGN) is not available to all in the U.S., unless you live in developed area with cable service and are willing to "pay" for it.
Welcome to the Forum. I am in total agreement with you that it's great to have ALF back on TV and, although return is only syndicated reruns of the ALF TV Series, I join you in the hopes that somehow this might be the catalyst for ALF's climb back to stardom.
I wanted to let you know. I was watching season 2's "The Boy Next Door" tonight and during the end credits, WGN flashed a banner saying that starting next week, ALF will only be shown on Sundays at 5:00 Central Time.
