A Fitting Finale!
30 October 2019 | by gab-14712See all my reviews

"See Dick Run" is the twentieth and final episode of the first season of 3rd Rock from the Sun. It's a very good finale and sets up the next season very well. It also has a surprising finish. Dick wanted to take Mary out on a date for the longest time, and he finally gets his wish. Their date turns out to be something else. Sally also has some success with her date, Mr. Randell. But things turn sideways when the Solomons learned they have failed their mission and must leave Earth immediately.

This was a funny, fitting end to the first season. I wasn't sure this show would work based on principle alone. But I made it through this season with a smile on my face and wanting some more. It's a light-hearted sitcom with a sci-fi twist. No ruining the very end, but I liked the cliffhanger. I also liked when Harry uses his communicator with the Big Giant Head for the first time. Very weird, but very funny!

My Grade: A-
