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

During the filming of the final season, NBC refused to let the producers know whether or not they had been renewed until after the filming of the final episode, in order to try and draw in viewers. To compensate, the creators filmed two different endings. In the first ending, which was shown on network television, the Solomons went back to their homeworld and erased Mary's memory. In late 2001, the second ending was shown in syndication for what was billed as the "first and only time." This "second ending" is actually an extension of the original: Mary wakes up and goes to the Solomon's car and finds that Dick has given her the keys (you can see Dick tucking something in her hand in the original broadcast ending). When she puts the key into the ignition, a naked Dick appears next to her in the car and screams "ALIEN ABDUCTION! ALIEN ABDUCTION!" before grabbing Mary and disappearing with her. See more »
err.....grrr....arrgghhh!!! "In Coming Message From The Big Giant Head"
Ever Since Harry (French Stewert) said "You Know Dick....." (In his nasal voice)for the first time I knew that this would be a Brilliant series! When the aliens discovered their human forms (And Sally's Boobs!) They started learning little by little everything that WE take for granted! I say Everyone who appeared on this series were simply BRILLIANT actors and nobody would argue with me! From the first time I saw the high commander salute I salute in no other way!!! My forehead is still sore! Thank you 3rd Rock for 5 wonderful years of bellycramping laughs!! Rock On!!!
This message will end in 5....4.....3....2.... Haaachewww!!!
