I don’t know how many of you out there watched “Third Rock From the Sun” back in the day, but it was really funny.
The show stars John Lithgow, Jane Curtain and French Stewart among others. It’s about four aliens who come to Earth on a mission, and take human form. They’re trying to experience human life. It’s just hysterical
Dick is the leader, and works at a university. Harry is the goofball. Sally is the security, and she’s not really happy about being turned into a woman. Tommy gets to be the teenager. It’s really funny to see how they deal with life on Earth. They actually tackle a lot of social issues on the show, and oddly, they’re just as relevant now as they were then.
The jokes on the show and the situations never get old. I’ve been watching old episodes online, and I still laugh at every single one of them. If you’ve never seen Third Rock, I highly recommend finding it online or buying it on DVD if you can. It’s a riot, and sure to bring a smile to your face. It’s comedy from the era when comedy was still actually funny.
