In the opening scene Dick offers Mary breakfast. On the tray is a big slice of melon, a jar of peanut butter on top of a can of tuna and a 2 liter bottle of Sunkist. While Dick is talking to Don and Sally, the tray changes to a small slice of melon, the peanut butter is no longer on the tuna and the Sunkist is a bottle of whiskey. Then it changes back to the original. See more »

Aliens can Act
25 February 2012 | by ZTrainExpressSee all my reviews

Okay let's all admit that Seasons 1-3 were nothing short of iconic television theater - far beyond the average sitcom fair.

But this one was a great episode that started out seeming like it would be gimmicky. But really John Lithgow and Kristen Johnston out-do themselves by essentially playing each other. It was a far fetched plot that was played to perfection by the whole cast. In the same vane you have to include Jane Curtain and Wayne Knight, who serve as the perfect foils to the switched gendered cast members. Curtain just keeps showing her comedic acting skills through completely bizarre scenarios, taking it seriously so that the comedic effect is enhanced.

The ridiculous business with the "bad-asses" at the restaurant. that's another story. The whole premise of Harry working in the restaurant this season just feels like forced jabs at new plots. The scenes with the bikers just weren't very funny and the payoff just didn't, well, pay off.

That's okay though. As long as the A-plot is perfect and the B-plot is sub-par, that's more than enough for me.

Long live 3rd Rock!
