Storyline

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 Jim Brawn <jim_brawn@amuc.mtroyal.ab.ca>

I never watched this show when it actually came on NBC, but I continue to watch the reruns everyday and I find myself asking why didn't I pay more attention to this show, but I am glad I have a chance to catch up what a funny show. John Lithgow is great the the high commander Dick Solomon and his supporting characters Tommy, Sally, and Harry aren't annoying and keep you laughing add Wayne Knight as Officer Don Orville and Jane Curtin as Mary Albright and you have yourself a good sitcom there is a reason it lasted 5 years. Watch the reruns if you can!
