Of course, there are a number of episodes that concern Morks heightened sense of justice and fairness, including "Dueling Skates," in which Mork challenges a champion skater to a race in order to save the day care center where he works. "Mork, the Monkeys Uncle" begins with Mork kidnapping a chimp from a zoo after concluding the primate was being mistreated. "Gunfight at the Mork-ay Corral" focuses on Morks effort to teach a young boy (Corey Feldman) about the virtue of non-violence. Finally, there are plenty of comic storylines that simply encourage Williams to display his genius, such as "Mork Meets Robin Williams," in which character and actor have a hilarious, face-to-face interview encounter. "Alas, Poor Mork, We Knew Him Well," is a very fun show about Morks neurotic reaction to an insurance salesmans pitch about death from natural disasters. Mork & Mindy: The Third Season has a number of episodes from among the best of the old Garry Marshall-created sitcom. --Tom Keogh

However, Mork wasn't supposed to ever become too acclimated to earth (Putting the Ork back in Mork I, II). So, in order to successfully complete his mission, he is required to remember his extraterrestrial heritage. It's also the studio's way of acknowlleging that deleting Fred and Cora from the cast had been a mistake, and gennuine attempts were being made to repair things--such as the series Nielsen ratings.
As it turns out, Mork's reports have been so popular (regardless of whom he interacts with on Earth) that other Orkians want his job ("There's a new Mork in Town"). And can we really blame them! Aside from being an observer, Mork is a compassionate being who sincerely tries to help anything he thinks is hurting, even a chimp ("Mork, The Monkey's Uncle")
Pam Dawber gives another awesome lead performance in "Mindy Gets a Job". Fate requires her--with some assistance from Mork--to unexpectedly perform the local newscast as a solo gig. A blizzard conveniently prevents all of the old pros from getting to the station. So, there is nothing like the present to demonstrate that she has the competence necessary to successfully make it as a professional journalist. Episodes like these easily remind me why I had looked up to Mindy as a young girl--and now continue doing so; she remained both pretty and professional---even in a crisis.
Gender is again brought up in "Mork and Mindy Meet Rick and Ruby".Read more ›
Some of my favorite episodes are the premiere episode, Putting the Ork Back in Mork; Mork in Never-Never Land, featuring the great guest star David Spielberg; Mork Meets Robin Williams, where Robin Williams Guest Stars as himself! Also my favorite Old Muggable Mork, featuring Grandma's guest appearance.
There's more, but these are just some of my favorites from this season. I remember it like it was yesterday.
