Description by OLDIES.com:
Welcome to Earth, Baby! Join the high commander, Dick Solomon (John Lithgow), decorated military officer, Sally (Kristen Johnston), seasoned intelligence specialist, Tommy (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and Harry (French Stewart), the extra seat, for the third season of one of the funniest and best sitcoms in TV history. Watch as the naive aliens, dressed as humans, experience the peculiarities of earthlings in marriage, love, fear, doctors, jury duty and diets. This celebrated third season of one of TV's best sitcoms includes co-stars Jane Curtain, Wayne Knight, Simbi Khali, Elmarie Wendel and Jan Hooks as well as special guests Cindy Crawford, John Cleese and Roseanne!
A science-fiction-themed sitcom, 3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN looked at the absurdity of human behavior and society from the perspective of a literal outsider. Four alien beings have been transported to Earth in order to more closely study mankind. Landing in the town of Rutherford, Ohio, each member of the quartet takes on a human appearance, forming the "Solomon" family: leader Dick (John Lithgow), sophomoric Harry (French Stewart), man-trapped-in-a-woman's-body Sally (Kristen Johnston), and eldest member (in the form of a teenage boy) Tommy (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). As they set out to examine the habits of the humans around them, the team experiences the human emotions of love and loss, and encounters many comic misunderstandings from their too-literal readings of human words and actions. Using clever writing and acting rather than gaudy special effects to convey "alien-ness," 3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN was one of television's most unusual comedy series. This collection includes all episodes from the third season.
