3rd Rock from the Sun Season 4 (1998) – By Jason S. Lockard

3rd Rock from the Sun returns for another season of out of this world fun. Acclaimed by critics and adored by rabid fans and thanks to Mill Creek Entertainment we can relive the great episodes of Season 4 on DVD!

The story of 3rd Rock from the Sun is simple. Four aliens land in Rutherford Ohio their mission is to learn about the human race and report their findings to the alien in charge known as “the Big Giant Head”. The mission was given to the best of the best; The High Commander {John Lithgow}, The Seasoned Intelligence Specialist {Joseph Gordon-Levitt}, The Decorated Military Officer {Kristen Johnson} and Communications Officer {French Stewart}. The four aliens struggle to fit in with the humans in everyday life.

Season 3 ended with Harry being kidnapped a enraged jealous ex-boyfriend played by the extremely funny Phil Hartman, but tragically he was killed; so writers had to come up with another way to tie up loose ends; Dick, Tommy and Sally find Harry working at a country fair as the alien freak show.

Season four continues with our favorite alien quartet dealing with Dick’s Power hungry ways when he see’s his girlfriend Mary (Jane Curtin)’s promotion to Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences as his promotion. Sally finally feels it time to loose her virginity to her portly boyfriend Police Officer Don (Wayne Knight). Dick is obsessed with collecting little stuffed animals and uses the money for food and rent to feed his addiction! Then the alien foursome must deal with the arrival of The Big Giant Head himself! Season 4 boosts of special guest stars Laurie Metcalf (Roseanne), Christin Lakin (Step by Step), Kevin Nealon (SNL), Kathy Bates and Captain Kirk himself Thee William Shatner just to name a few.

This 3 DVD set features a visually pleasing DVD menu, all 24 Season 4 episodes again the video and audio quality is great. The only downside on this release is the thin bonus features which include only a blooper reel, an small interview with Jane Curtin, highlights of season 4 and there was no audio commentaries. That’s the only downside in this release, but still not bad for the price of only $10.

I highly recommend you head on over to Millcreekent.com or your local DVD store and pick up copies of all four seasons of 3rd Rock from the Sun and watch the greatest sitcom dealing with four aliens taking over human form and living in Rutherford, Ohio!
