A group of aliens are sent on earth to see how human lives and to learn their behavior. They are disguise as a human family. They report to their planet which is the 3rd rock from the sun.

You know you have to cast John Lithgow in this series they are no other way. He is perfect for it. He plays Dick a college professor.Sally (Kristen Johnson), Tommy (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and Harry (French Stewart) is the rest of the clan who is suppose to study humans and report to their planet. Sally is hilarious especially when she is dressed in a mini shirt and discover what it does to the male species.Tommy is an old alien in a teenager’s body, Sally is a male in a female’s body and Dick acts like a radio and receive messages from home. In the mix there will be a romance between Dick and Dr. Mary Albright (Jane Curtin) . The cast is absolutely delicious here and well as the writers. John Lithgow is a delight to watch here is a wonderful actor at work. It is funny as hell sometimes silly as it can be but you will have a good time.
