ratings & reviews

  • The level of the writing ranges from juvenile... to fairly clever, but the performers are what really enliven '3rd Rock.' ... The cast is just right. The concept, though nothing new, fits just fine. I'd love to recommend this show unreservedly but until its scripts improve a notch, it's more like an extended sketch. [7 Jan 1996] Show More

  • The show ought to be more than a sophomoric aliens-meet-humans smutcom. It should be an advancement on My Favorite Martian and Mork & Mindy. But it's not. [9 Jan 1996] Show More

  • 'Rock' is little more than one big sophomoric sex joke. ... All of this is doubly disappointing because it's such a waste of talent. [9 Jan 1996] Show More
