It would be safe to say that most of us experience the harsh realities of life. To say that “life is hard” would indeed be an understatement. But to characterize all of life as hard would be wrong, and perhaps some people simply take life and themselves too seriously. Thankfully “TV Land” is bringing back a show that will remind us all of just how silly life, and we ourselves, can be.
Third Rock from the Sun was a hilarious 90s sitcom featuring four aliens who come to earth to study its inhabitants and their life. What unfolds in each episode are their mishaps and misunderstanding of the culture. For example, one of my favorite episodes features Sally’s first visit to the dentist. The doctor rinses out her mouth and then asks her to “spit,” holding out small bucket. She, in response, turns her head and spits all over the dentists shirt. Each episode features similar events where the aliens try to understand emotions, language, love, and life in general.
