Editorial Reviews

Aliens have come to Earth to learn about its population, customs, etc. To blend in, they have taken on human form which gives them human emotions but no comprehension of how to decipher such emotions. Their uninhibited and candid reactions along with their complete lack of social etiquette turn everyday events into unusual, awkward and hilarious situations. Watch this army of lovable clueless resident "visitors" as they make their way through everyday life, observing the humans' every move.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hilarious Sci-Fi Comedy! September 1, 2005
By M. Hart
When a group of four extraterrestrial aliens assumed human form in order to study humanity, the results were hilarious on NBC's 1996-2001 sitcom "3rd Rock from the Sun". The unrelated traveling extraterrestrial foursome takes up residence in the fictional midwestern college town of Rutherford, Ohio. The "High Commander" (John Lithgow) takes on the identity of a father and college physics professor named Dick Solomon. The "Security Officer" (Kristen Johnston) takes on the female identity of Dick's sister Sally. The "Information Officer" (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) takes on the identity of Dick's son Tommy. The fourth alien (French Stewart) takes on the identity of Dick's brother Harry. Having never experienced life as human beings, the alien foursome quickly find that dealing with strange human feelings and senses can be very challenging. This was especially true for Sally, who, as a woman, experiences a greater array of emotions. Then, there's the human woman that inadvertently captures Dick's heart: a college professor by the name of Dr. Mary Margaret Albright (Jane Curtain). Dick falls madly in love with Mary, who for a long time has little interest in Dick's advances and thinks that Dick is a bit odd. Then there's Dick's human secretary Nina Campbell (Simbi Khali), who also thinks he's very odd. Other humans that the Solomon's frequently interact with are their eccentric landlady Mrs. Dubcek (Elmarie Wendel) and Police Officer Donald 'Don' Orville (Wayne Knight). Don becomes quite infatuated with Sally. Other humans that Dick interacts with frequently are the students in his physics classes. Read more ›

When "3rd Rock From The Sun" arrived in the spring of 1996, it was like a breath of fresh air amist the plethora of Seinfeld-clone sitcoms which littered the tv landscape. Led by the wonderful John Lithgow, "3rd Rock" achieved a kind of brilliant lunacy.

While the first season had it's share of hit 'n miss episodes, the second season was solid and funnier with the cast more comfortible in their zany roles. From the opening two-parter ("See Dick Run"'ll notice that almost ALL the episodes have "Dick" in the title) that set the tone for rest of the season through such glorious highlights as "Big Angry Virgin From Outer Space", "World's Greatest Dick" has John Lithgow go completely nuts over the football team (just wonderful) & the introduction of the great Jan Hooks in "Gobble, Gobble, Dick, Dick", this is a season not to be missed for the devoted 3rd Rock fan.

However, there are a couple of things I need to warn you about, the first concerns the season-ending two parter "A Nightmare on Dick Street" which has the wonderful 3-D scenes. The original presentation was of a single, hour long show (I know since I still have the original airing on NBC) and this two-parter is from the syndicated release, meaning that there are small sections CUT from the original show. This is rather unusual since I expect all episodes to be shown without syndicated cuts. Since I do not have other Season 2 episodes on tape, it's possible that the entire season may be the "syndicated" variety and not the way the show was originally aired.

Also, the box cover claims that there is an alternative ending to the 3-D episode...WHERE? I've gone through all the extras and have watched the episodes in their entirety and yet have not found this "alternate ending".

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll Laugh Yourself Silly November 17, 2005
Not to repeat all the wonderful points made by other reviewers, this second season of 3rd Rock is even funnier than the first. With topflight writing, and a brilliant ensemble cast performing before a live audience, this season contains some of the highlights of the entire series. Just some of the things to look out for:

In "Much Ado About Dick", the penultimate cocktail party at the Dean's house is a veritable hoot culminating in Dick singing "Night and Day" at the piano with Sally, Tommy and Harry backing him up in full harmony;

In "Dick and the Single Girl", the great Christine Baransky sings the wonderful and sultry "You've Awakened My Passion, Dick Solomon" (and her reference to Nikolai Lobachevsky is a wry nod to Tom Lehrer and his song "Lobachevsky");

And in the wonderful two-part season finale, "Nightmare on Dick Street", the dream sequences are utterly delicious: Dick's nightmare sequence-- where his captors and he run into the expressionistic backdrop, and Jane Curtin does her wonderful Marlene Dietrich impression ("First I sing a song I wrote this morning: Falling in love again...")and Dick faces the Mother of All Jellos; Sally's is a delicious Fellini movie -- at times in Italian with subtitles-- and she later delivers the precious line, "I could never give myself to poultry..."; Tommy's is expressionistic and includes his music teacher seducing him to the strains of "Bali Hai"; and Harry's is a delightful musical comedy dance number to the Randy Newman song, "Life Has Been Good to Me"-- and he is a terrific dancer!

And the extras are great, especially the Season Two Bloopers, which are hilarious. All in all, a wonderful release! I can't wait for Season Three (which if I recall begins with Tommy, Sally and Harry returning with the Big Giant Head's niece, whom He commands to be Dick's wife-- played by Roseann Barr).

Why the syndicated versions?
This seems to be a very common practice for some reason, and it's really disappointing. You assume that you're getting the complete versions and then when you watch them you realize some of the best lines are missing. In "A Nightmare on Dick street", the whole joke about the Jehovah's... Read More
