3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN is an inspired half-hour comedy series farcically dealing with the human condition set in the fictional city of Rutherford, Ohio. This gentle-hearted series stars John Lithgow as the High Commander of an investigative team sent to Earth on a mission to learn everything about humans and their so-called advanced civilization. Described by its producers as "Carl Sagan meets the Marx Brothers," 3rd Rock has a clever, distinct point of view seen through the extraterrestrial team who has no other worldly powers except absolute truthfulness.

This show is such a gem! Even now, after almost two decades since it originally aired, it still rings true and holds it humor. My husband and I always joke about what in the world aliens would think of us if they ever landed on Earth on a normal day, and I have to admit that this show seems to answer a lot of our musings! =)
