3rd Rock from the Sun

Television is an overarching theme in 3rd Rock from the Sun.

Oh, Dick! We've got cable! 72 channels, and unlike primitive free television, this one you get to pay for.

–Harry Solomon

Dick: We didn't come here to watch television!

Harry: Yeah, but it's given us a reason to stay.

–Dick reminding the crew of their mission.

God bless television!

–Dick Solomon

Dick: Alright, we'll kidnap him and hide him. When he's a teenager we'll set him free. . . . Then if he's really messed up, we can blame it on television.

–Dick's plan from Vicki and the Big Giant Head's baby.
