A group of aliens has come to Earth to learn about its population, customs, etc. To avoid detection, they have taken on human form which gives them human emotions, physical needs etc. WITHOUT the understanding of what they mean or the inhibitions normally present in humans. Their leader takes the position of a college professor, their military expert as his sister, their intelligence expert, supposedly oldest of group takes form of his teenage son. The uninhibited reactions turn everyday events into unusual situations. Written by

The pilot was originally shot for ABC, but they didn't put it on their fall schedule. NBC took a look and liked what they saw. See more »
What does the crowd look like out there?
Why don't you open up the curtain and look?
Oh, nice breath. What did you have for lunch, garlic?
Well naturally you didn't eat lunch at all so you can chew on the scenery.
Great mastery of theater terms. Did you learn taht you in your book called "How to Perform on Stage?" because maybe you should start with the chapter called "How to Perform on Stage".
Yeah? Well maybe you shouldn't do card tricks that reflect off of your big, bald head!

Pure brilliance is all I can say!!! Pure brilliance! Every time I watch this show, I laugh out loud over and over again. Even episodes I've seen before. Hysterical.
The absolutely perfect cast is part of what makes it so good. John Lithgow is, of course, hilarious. He hits every one of his jokes spot on. Jany Curtin, Symbhi Kali, French Stewart, and even Joseph Gordon-Levitt are all great. But it's Kristen Johnston who really steals the show! She is one of the funniest people I've ever seen, and I only hope I get to see more and more of her.
A great script, done well by great actors. What more can you want? Impossible not to laugh- Really!!! 8/10 stars!!!
