INCOMING MESSAGE from the BIG GIANT head

3 Oct

Ok, so I originally thought that the first tv show I’d post about on the ‘classic guilty pleasures’ would be Seinfeld, but I got a post that mentioned 3rd Rock from the Sun and I just had to choose that one. I think many of you out there remember this show, but for those who don’t, it was a sitcom that aired from 1996 to 2001 about four aliens sent on a mission to Earth. They live disguised as a very unconventional family. The show started out following the group’s interaction with Earth as a form of study for their mission, but the characters got personally interested with Cleveland very soon and their work got set aside. The humor of the show is great. I love French Steward’s character, you can’t help but smile when an incoming message came in and he switched into radio mode. The teenager of the family is actually the oldest of the extraterrestrials, which is also very fun to watch as he struggles with being a teen. The character called Mary Albright, a human that works with the ‘father’ of the family and his love interest during the show, is just what is missing to complete this group and make the aliens’ life even spicier. So anyway, I hope the people who don’t know it can give it a try, and maybe those who’ve seen it and have forgotten about it can rediscover its laughs.

    this is also a show that has that “i dont know how i got hooked” feeling for me, but it grew on me.
    Ive seen John Lithgow (dick solomon, or the father as you said) in another series and i cant help but keep picturing him as Dick.
