All six series of the American television comedy, about a group of alien explorers who assume human shape in order to learn more about earth's civilisation. Landing in the town of Rutherford, Ohio, the group soon displays a charming innocence in their reaction to human society, trying to fit in while getting human life spectacularly wrong. John Lithgow stars as Dick Solomon, the alien team's leader, with performances from Kristen Johnston, French Stewart, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jane Curtin, and with guest appearances from John Cleese and William Shatner. Includes all 139 episodes.

I ordered my copy at the reduced price of £35 and received it via free delivery within a week so perhaps there had been a hiccup with whoever was supplying it to Amazon in earlier weeks?
Anyway, I was happy with the service and the DvD box set is absolutely superb and I'm glad I grabbed the opportunity of getting it ridiculously cheap.
The cast are excellent, particularly John Lithgow, Jane Curtin and Dwayne Knight. The writing is probably the best I personally have come across from North America, and has a mix of humours that anyone above the age of 12 will appreciate. I have never heard a word of bad language in any of the shows as yet and it can never be accused of appealed to the lowest common denominator to get a laugh.
The only downsides are the lack of subtitles in ANY language. If you are a foreign fan of Third Rock that wants subtitles you need to look for the other box set that includes these, it is available on Amazon too. The only other thing is that the circular expansion moulds are a bit stiff and getting the DVD out can be fiddly in some cases.
Dick (a college professor aka the High Commander) heads the family, with his 'sister' Sally (Security Officer and extreme hottie). There's his younger 'brother' Harry (Communications Officer and village idiot) and Dick's 'son' Tommy (eldest of the aliens and a high school junior). Between them they learn from their experiences and along the way show us the inconsistencies of human life in the funniest way.
While you watch this genuinely funny US Import pay special attention to Harry. One classic moment for me was when Dick opened the closet and found Harry hanging on the back of the door in a straight jacket. They pause and regard each other and Harry says "I won't learn if you keep on letting me out!" Sally challenges our views of sexual stereo types through her relationship with Officer Don of the local PD, and Dick just continually fails to get humanity. Watch for fantastic cameos from William Shatner as the Big Giant Head and John Cleese as a visiting Alien.
Buy this DVD box set. It *will* make you laugh and above all give you the reassuring feeling that while the aliens are out there, we're quite safe.
Oh yes, one last thing - make sure you practice the salute!
I buy all my DVDs from them, and it's surprising that they should risk incurring adverse customer feedback by advertising a product they either do not have in stock, and seem unable or unwillng to deliver - at least at the price quoted, which is significantly less than anywhere else.
As matters stand, you are left wondering whether there is even the possibility of delivery, whether you should be looking for another supplier, and how much reliance you can place on what they say.
NOTE: This is the ONLY occasion when I have had cause to complain in an otherwise excellent service.
