Description by OLDIES.com:
Do NOT approach, subject considered dangerously funny! Aliens have come to Earth to learn about its population, customs etc. To blend in, they have taken on human form which gives them human emotions but with no comprehension of how to decipher such emotions. Their uninhibited and candid reactions along with their complete lack of social etiquette turn everyday events into unusual, awkward and hilarious situations. Watch this band of loveably clueless resident visitors as they make their way through everyday life, observing the humans' every move.
A science-fiction-themed sitcom, 3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN looked at the absurdity of human behavior and society from the perspective of a literal outsider. Four alien beings have been transported to Earth in order to more closely study mankind. Landing in the town of Rutherford, Ohio, each member of the quartet takes on a human appearance, forming the "Solomon" family: leader Dick (John Lithgow), sophomoric Harry (French Stewart), man-trapped-in-a-woman's-body Sally (Kristen Johnston), and eldest member (in the form of a teenage boy) Tommy (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). As they set out to examine the habits of the humans around them, the team experiences the human emotions of love and loss, and encounters many comic misunderstandings from their too-literal readings of human words and actions. Using clever writing and acting rather than gaudy special effects to convey "alien-ness," 3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN was one of television's most unusual comedy series. This release contains all 26 episodes from the show's second season.
