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"). "Tom, Dick or Harry" is no specific person but could be any random person. See more »
[Tommy and Harry are moving Sally's belongings out of the house]
[Tommy carries a large box with difficulty]
Oh, Harry, you've got to help me with this box, it's filled with rocks and books and stuff.
[Harry grips the box and gets ready to push it up, as he does, the box flies over his head]
... It was empty...
[grabs the box and starts to leave]
I'm the strongest man in the world!

This comedy is one of the funniest to grace the tube. These people are TOO FUNNY and I wish it was still in first run but glad to see it in syndication! John Lithgow and Jane Curtin are BOTH great comics and I would love to see a 3rd Rock reunion someday, a definate +10 on my scale! Definate must see TV!
