The Solomons are excitedly preparing for Christmas. Sally has a festive job as a gift wrapper and Harry as Santa’s assistant in the mall, but their Christmas spirit is drowned when Dick is arrested for attempting to cut somebody’s tree down for his living room, Sally and her shoppers get into an argument and Harry discovers that the Santa he is working for isn’t the real one, while Tommy is frustrated that girlfriend August won’t tell him what she wants for Christmas. A classic Christmas episode teaching the Solomons what Xmas is all about. Sally working at the mall was a highlight and Dick thinking the mistletoe is weeds growing on the wood. all in all a great episode and I love watching it every year.

HAPPY NEW DICK

As 1998 comes to close, Dick worries that he hasn’t accomplished anything worthwhile and struggles to do something to make the past year count. Meanwhile, Officer Don becomes annoyed with Sally after she uses her feminine wiles to persuade him to get tickets for Rutherford’s exclusive Starlight Room, then changes her mind when he succeeds. At Happy Doug’s bar, Harry and Tommy plan an explosive New Year’s party and Harry hires on his old night school friends, Larry and Mrs. Deguzman, but they turn out to be layabouts.

Another decent episode as always Sally trying to manipulate Don in buying her stuff is hilarious and Dick trying seek out meaning in the year that has just passed, only to find it in the woman he loves.

tumblr_inline_ndkl0kScJk1qa1eatDick goes for a medical checkup but becomes scared and leaves before his appointment. Mary asks Sally and Tommy to house sit for her on Halloween, to stop trick-or-treaters (Emile Hirsch) egging her home while she is out. Harry, however, chooses to stay at home, where he encounters some very strange noises and starts to believe that there is a ghost in the house.3rd-rock-from-the-sun-halloween3rd Rock is not your A-typical show, it doesn’t deal with real life and regular families and friends. every character in this show is weird and crazy and doing their own thing. i think its better this way. i get tired of watching the same old shows with a husband and a wife. problems with the kids or work or each other. its very refreshing to see a show where they have crazy situations and answers. plus it fun to see what it might be like for an alien to come to earth and not know how to deal with their bodies, or relationships, or school and work. This Halloween themed episode showcases just how good the show was and how it will always be remembered fondly
