3rd Rock from the Sun

Sent to Earth to investigate civilization, an alien high commander and his quirky crew -- military officer Sally, information expert Tommy and transmitter Harry -- assume human identities to blend in. Although they possess superior intelligence, their naïveté about the human condition turns everyday events into farcical fun.

Tommy has his first day of school in this episode, which doesn't make any sense as he's already been to school.
