3rd Rock from the Sun (sometimes referred to as simply 3rd Rock) is an American sitcom that aired from 1996 to 2001 on NBC. The show is about four extraterrestrials who are on an expedition to Earth, which they consider to be a very insignificant planet. The extraterrestrials pose as a human family in order to observe the behavior of human beings. 'As many intelligent people know, aliens are all around us. This is a story of a band of four such explorers. In order to blend in, they have assumed human form. This is the High Commander (Dick Solomon). He has assembled an elite team of experts: A decorated military officer (Sally Solomon), a seasoned intelligence specialist (Tommy Solomon) and, well, they had an extra seat (Harry Solomon).' (The first nine episodes of Season 1 feature this narration by an uncredited voiceover, followed by a short joke which is different in each episode. The rest of the season ends the narration at 'four such explorers' and omits the jokes.
