Tony Micelli, a retired baseball player, becomes the housekeeper of Angela Bower, an advertising executive in New York. Together they raise their kids, Samantha Micelli and Jonathon Bower, with help from Mona Robinson, Angela's man-crazy mother.
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 three main male characters' names are Tom, Dick, and Harry. "Tom, Dick, and Harry" is a phrase used as a synonym for "everyone" or when referring to "a set of nobodies; a persons of no note" (from "Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable"). See more »
I am now the coolest punk in school.
Well, congratulations. What did you do?
I got suspended for setting off the fire alarm.
They suspended you? You saved hundreds of lives!
That's the best part; there was no fire.
Tommy, this is outrageous! The next time you set off the fire alarm, you'd damn well better start a fire first.

well I'm 15 and i simple love 3rd rock from the sun it has sections for all the family. The characters are great and are played with amazing talent. I don't think there is anything i could say that i hated and i only wished they could have carried on making more shows. As a family Dick Sally Harry and Tommy go great together each having their own individual style. Every show has more gags and laughs than the last. The story line of aliens disguised as humans is hilarious, I find it funny to see them tying to fit in and understand humans. Some of the lines leave me laughing for days and I'm sure they will live on for years to come!!!! Proving that there is no show better than 3rd rock from the sun!!
