Format: DVD
At last this wonderful series has appeared on DVD. The story of a group of aliens staying on Earth disguised as a highly dysfunctional Earth family. The High Commander becomes Dick Solomon, professor of Physics at a mediocre university. The Security officer becomes his glamorous and tough sister Sally. The information officer, the oldest member of the party, becomes Dick's teenage son Tommy. And Harry - well, they had an extra seat. All the actors in this series are wonderful, from John Lithgow (Dick Solomon) to wonderful Elmarie Wendel as the Solomons' landlady, Mrs Dubcek, a woman with a past. Many of the funniest episdoes are in this first series, as the Solomons struggle to understand earth and its inhabitants. I particularly like the one where Sally gets drawn into the bizzare world of cosmetics, and Harry gets a job selling a revolting skincare product for men 'Orca - made from whales' Dick's (at first) unrequited passion for his university colleague Dr. Mary Allbright (Jane Curtin) provides some of the series funniest moments. I love the episode where she takes him to a wedding with her, and when she is describing the ceremony to him he asks "and right after the ceremony, does the bride devour the groom?" "Oh no", she replies "that's a process that takes years." And then there's the episode where Dick gets snowed up with Mary in a cafe miles from anywhere, and Sally thinks the human race has perished and she'll have to repopulate the earth with Dick's dopey student Leon, and - oh well, every episode is funny, the whole cast is great, the sxcripst are wonderful. It's pure joy.

Laugh out loud funny. Crazy high energy humour. Yet it does pose some philosophical questions about the human race (a friend of mine takes notes). The only problem is that I wish I'd bought the boxed set of all the episodes instead of just the first series.

A superbly crafted US comedy that was well written and acted.

It is genuinely very very funny.

John Lithgow often steals the show.

Probably not the best season but still very watchable and enjoyable

3rd Rock From the Sun was/is the best show on tv. It show's how we look at life. On other sitcoms they play the soap opera card. Which means, they try to make you feel for a character, but these are sitcom characters. Whenever 3rd Rock the soap card, they always back it up with something funny. John Lithgow is the best actor in the world. I also like Kristen Johnston, French Stewart, Joey Gordon-Levitt, and the rest of the cast.
I just want to thank the cast for making the show so brilliant and outrageously funny. So thank you John, Kristen, French, Joey, Simbi, Elmarie, Wayne, Jane, and the guest stars. Thank you.

Brilliantly funny. Us through the eyes of an incompetent alien recce team.

In the vain of Mork and Mindy it develops the theme in its own idiosyncratic style.

The cast led by the wonderful John Lithgow with eye candy by Kristen Johnston you're in for a treat.

This was for me the best of all the series. The early days on our 3rd Rock from the Sun!

I'd forgotten how good this series was, until I caught an episode on tv. The complete set would have involved a mortgage, so I decided to start at the beginning. The set arrived , well packed and in quick time. And it all came flooding back. If you don't own this set, you are poorer by far. become richer. Buy this set and laugh your head off, just as I did. Now....

These 'used-good' DVD's arrived within a few days, in excellent condition. Haven't stopped laughing since - what a brilliant show Third Rock was - pity they don't make them like that anymore. My only concern is how to get hold of the next series as it seems that the only DVD's available are for American DVD players. Excellent all round family entertainment.

Saw some of this on TV many years ago but life interrupted; decided to catch up and the characters and humour are just as fresh and sharp. The observations of human behaviour from an alien's point of view make us see mankind for what it is - silly and selfish and unique !
