“World’s Greatest Dick” (November 10,
Sally Solomon is a straight, cis character, but for the first two
seasons of the 3rd Rock from the Sun, there was this queer or trans
aura around her. This episode dispels it, for the most part, and
allows the writers to craft storylines and jokes that are no longer
different versions of the “man trapped in a woman’s body” trope.
Drew and Glen disagree on exactly what the gay man trying to date
her thinks is going on with Sally, but for all that could go wrong
with this kind of plot, it’s not that bad. The ending sucks, sure,
but we point out how it could have played out better.
