3rd Rock Turns 20: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Then and Now

3rd Rock from the Sun Turns 20, Plus 10 Other Roles That Led Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Stardom

Twenty years ago this week, an oddball NBC sitcom introduced viewers to a family of space aliens who, in the grand tradition of ALF, Mork and Mindy and My Favorite Martian, were attempting to hide out on Earth. It was a silly premise, but 3rd Rock from the Sun ended up outlasting those other three shows, running a full six seasons. And we can credit its success to a talented comedic cast that included John Lithgow, Kristen Johnston, French Stewart and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who was only 14 when the show premiered.

[EMBEDCODE {}] Speaking on The Talk on Tuesday, host Sara Gilbert reacted to the news that her sitcom mom, Roseanne Barr, is going blind as a result of macular degeneration and glaucoma.

"I love Roseanne so much, and she's such a strong person and such an important person in my life," Gilbert said during a segment on the show. "I know she's a fighter and I know she's strong. I truly believe that if anyone can do it, she'll have her sight as long as possible."

On Monday, Barr, 62, revealed in a Daily Beast interview that while she would eventually lose her sight as a result of the eye disease, the timeline for that remains uncertain. Gilbert, 40, played Barr's daughter Darlene on nine seasons of the TV series Roseanne.

Summer means two things for most Americans: A family trip and a lack of decent TV. However, if you're currently stuck at home, wishing you could find something better to watch, we've got an easy, free solution. You can just ride along with your favorite sitcom of choice!

Remember when sitcoms regularly had group vacations, played out over a series of episodes or even over two-hour movie events?

Sure, Modern Family still does an "away" adventure about once per season, but there was a time when a vacation episode was a full-fledged TV event. Shows you loved would ditch the multi-camera set-up and studio lighting for foreign locales and – gasp! – outside scenes that were actually filmed outside.

Some of these TV adventures happen to be viewable online, and we've collected all the ones we could find.

Bon voyage!
