The sci-fi comedy 3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN/NBC/1996-2001 featured the
Earth family Solomon, actually a collection of space aliens who
took human form to observe our planet. John Lithgow played High
Commander Dick Solomon, the alien's oversexed leader who posed as
a physics professor at a college near Cleveland, Ohio.
colleagues included Sally (Kristen Johnson), a towering butch
Amazonian blond who fancied the attentions of a portly policeman
named Officer Don (Wayne Knight); Harry (French Stewart), a
blithely bizarre squinty-eyed geek; and Tommy Solomon, an alien
military officer and the eldest of the aliens who masqueraded as
the horny teenage son of team leader.
The Solomon's reported all
of their findings back to their home world to an unseen alien
known as "The Big Giant Head." The Solomon's gathered facts by
interacting with such human as Dr. Mary Albright (Jane Curtin),
Dick's college colleague and romantic interest; Nina Campbell (Simbi
Khali) Dick's college assistant; Mrs. Dubcek (Elmarie Wendel), the
owner of the home in which the Solomon's lived; and August
Loeffler (Shay Astar), Tommy's pushy girlfriend.
