Storyline

While on the Earth to find out how humans live, a group of four aliens - that has taken on the human form - discovers humans are more complex than they had expected. Leader Dick learns human bodies can produce feelings and wants to find out more about these feelings with his colleague, Mary Albright. Tommy has a teenager human body and he - after seeing some volleyball girls practicing - also finds out human bodies can produce feelings, but these feelings are not quite the same as the ones Dick experiences.

7 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An amazing beginning to one of the best comedies in TV history.

In this pilot episode, Dick, Sally, Harry, and Tommy arrive on Earth for what is supposed to be a brief mission-- but they soon realize that the human experience can't be riddled out in mere days. "Brains and Eggs" kicks it all off by popping the characters into the proverbial frying pan and seeing what will happen.

And what does happen is hilarious. The pattern-setter for the rest of the ingenious sitcom is also one of the best, with the best performances and maybe even the best script not to involve the Big Giant Head or something revolving around Nina.

Every bit a classic.
