Third Rock tribute

Nine years ago, the TV show "Third Rock From the Sun" came to a close.

Here's the alternative ending to the one they used in the finale. This is a much stronger way to go out, reprising their anthem from an earlier episode, and ending on a classically sci-fi note. Speaking of notes, the way Sally harmonizes here always gets me.

"Third Rock" was the first TV show I really got into after my mission, and it was a nice addition to my television diet, after two years of starvation. The show combines elements of slapstick and sci-fi parody that tickled my funny bone, lo these many years later.

Modern Warfare

Last week's episode of "Community," titled "Modern Warfare," was a work of superlative genius. It referenced Die Hard, Chow Yun Fat's gun-kata, The Warriors, The Terminator, and several other action films that I didn't catch. Other great references to Friends, Simpsons, and of course a few punches thrown at Glee.

This show is the best.
