I’ve never actually seen Third Rock from the Sun before, but this particular ep had a hilarious Zone reference!
NEVER SEEN Third Rock From the Sun??
French Stewart's silliness, Kristen Johnson's over-the-top franticness, and John Lithgow in full "Santa Claus: the Movie" cutesy scenery-chewing?
Well, that's the good thing about checking up on past TV series that have fallen into PD and saturated every streaming service known to man.
(Check out the episode where the characters catch a sudden mania for home-theater: It's a hilarious late-90's time-capsule for when nobody could understand the point of DVD or HDTV...)
Season 2 of the reboot dropped this week and CBS uploaded the first episode for free: (mild language)
Actually not half bad! I liked it. Held my interest throughout. Reminded me of an episode from the 80s series "A Message From Charity". Same concept but different story. This was more dark. I kinda loved the sinister twist. Half way I had suspicions. Probably could've been a little shorter, but it had heart and suspense. Dare I say, it had a certain charm to it that reminded me of the original. In a way, it was like commentary on social media.
There's also a scene that totally brings to mind "Time Enough at Last". I liked that.
