Synopsis


Season Three of the fantasy sitcom 3rd Rock from the Sun opens with another dilemma for the group of space aliens who have assumed the human form of the "Solomon" family for the purpose of gathering intelligence on the planet earth: It seems that group leader Dick Solomon (John Lithgow) has been ordered to marry Janet (guest star Roseanne), the niece of his superior back on his home planet, the Big Giant Head. Dick somehow manages to wriggle out of this because of his loyalty to his earthling sweetheart Mary Albright (Jane Curtin)--a loyalty that unfortunately proves to be a one-way street when Mary (still unaware that Dick is an alien) breaks off their relationship, thus launching a recurring motif wherein both Dick and Mary would like to get back together, but are too stubborn and prideful to admit it. In another story strand, Janet's arrival on earth proves so unnerving to Officer Don (Wayne Knight) that he immediately begins suspecting that an alien invasion is imminent--never dreaming that his own girlfriend Sally Solomon (Kristen Johnson) is herself Not Of This World. As for the other two members of the alien team, scientist Tommy Solomon (Joseph Gordon-Levitt)--a middle-ager trapped in the body of a human teenager--yearns to date someone closer to his "real" age (such as Mary) and later "retires" to a nursing home, while doltish crew member Harry Solomon (French Stewart) undergoes an offbeat reunion with his former pet, who has likewise taken on human form. Midway through the third season the Solomons must themselves fend off extraterrestrials when the earth is invaded by Venusians disguised as buxom females (including models Angie Everhart and Cindy Crawford) in the two-part episode "36!24!36 Dick". And in a later two-parter, "Just Your Average Dick", John Cleese does a screamingly funny turn as nutty professor Dr. Liam Neesam, who turns out to be an alien-in-disguise himself--not to mention a worthy adversary for Dick in the war to win Mary's hand and heart. The traditional season-ending cliffhanger finds a romantic "kiss and make up" dinner being ruined when the volatile former boyfriend of Harry's human girlfriend Vicki (Jan Hooks) bursts in and kidnaps Harry--just in time for the Solomons to miss an extremely vital transmission from their home-planet superior officer, The Big Giant Head. ~ Hal Erickson

    Dick runs into some problems this season – as soon as he gets engaged with Mary, he receives orders from above that he must marry the Big Giant Head’s niece. Although this is still a great season, I prefer episodes in which Dick and Mary are a couple. But Jane Curtin is so funny! There are so many jokes about Mary’s stubby legs and being overweight and she handle the comedy well. She’s a favorite character of mine. There’s a Halloween episode this season. I love Halloween! And Dick has to deal with jury duty. Vicki returns this season with a surprise – she’s celibate. The episode “36! 24! 36! Dick!” is a great two part episode that might be the funniest episode of the season. Drop dead gorgeous women from Venus infiltrate Earth by becoming the girlfriends of your regular everyday man. They’re greedy and they plan to get all the riches by airing a fiendish commercial during the Super Bowl. This episode includes Cindy Crawford as a guest star, who takes a sincere fancy to Harry. John Cheese also guest stars this season.
