    a real special show. for the idea, not original but used in smart manner, of the adaptation to the Earth life style of aliens. for each actor. and for the great story. for me, it is the series who discovers Joseph Gordon-Levitt. and this could be enough for define it as memorable show. but it has more. a John Lithgow who did an irresistible character, full of him but naive and charming, French Steward in a role who explores each art of him in splendid manner, Kristen Johnston as the irresistible woman in a group of men and , not the last, Jane Curtin. it is one of series who must see not only once. because the humor is only a part of a large iceberg. the references to the Persian Letters by Montesquieu, the fine irony about ordinary habits, the social relations presented in not a comfortable manner are virtues of this great , seductive show.

    "When beetles fight these battles in a bottle with their paddles, and the bottle's in a poodle and the poodle's eating noodles, they call this a muddle puddle tweedle poodle beetle noodle bottle paddle battle.... This man's a genius." - Dick Solomon - Four aliens. One semi-alcoholic lover. A sarcastic assistant. A cowardly incompetent but lovable cop. A nymphomaniac land lady. An even more nymphomaniac land lady's daughter. William Shatner! The above statements sumarize everything that is 3rd Rock from the Sun, and it is, for the lack of better word, it's GORGEOUS.From covering various topics, ranging from catching a cold to fighting a rival alien from home planet to win the heart of one's wee-body-lass, this show has hit every single apex in the racetrack that is a comedy show.True that this show has a few sex-oriented humour, so what? Panic, chaos, compassion, love, laughter, tears, doing-the-worst-possible-thing-while-trying-to-do-the-best, more panic, thermal-bond-epoxy, and even more panic are somethings this show knows well about.Surprisingly, a majority of the dialogue that discusses physics are actually sound. And to see the students in the class dumb-founded is simply hilarious.This is a must see, and a must see again and again for all.

    For me it all started back in 1997 when I became a fan of 3rd Rock From The Sun when the show aired -dubbed in Spanish- in a Peruvian TV channel broadcast in all Latin-America. Unfortunately the series was not a success and they only showed a bunch of episodes from the first season but it was more than enough to captivate me. I mean, who could possibly resist the funny Dr. Dick Solomon or the hilarious Harry Solomon -by the way, the dubbing of the series was just great and both characters were as funny in Spanish as they are in English...Thanks to the internet -and the fact that I learned English well enough to understand it without subtitles, because there are no subtitles available for this sitcom on the whole internet- I was able to get the whole 6 seasons and I just finished watching the 6th season finale, including the alternate ending -which I preferred- and some behind the scenes shooting.I wish the showed had gone on for so many more seasons. There was so much to explore, but anyway, I just have words of gratitude to all the people who made this amazing show possible. I owe them many hours of entertainment and hundreds of good laughs.

    Ah, Third Rock From the Sun. It's been around almost all my life. The show came on when I was either four or turning four, and my mom and I used to watch it all the time because she thought it was so funny. Of course, at my age I didn't understand all of (or any of) the humor, but I remember enjoying it because I used to get up and dance every time the exciting theme music came on. I may not like it as much nowadays, but I still watch it from time to time with it's new life on DVD and cable reruns. It wasn't quite as funny after Joseph Gordon Levitt got tired of it in the sixth season, and it seemed to get campier yet somewhat less enjoyable as it went along, but it was one of those shows that remained watchable throughout it's entire run. It may have just been a silly sitcom, but it was a dang funny silly sitcom!
