Bloopers, Mistakes, and Screw-ups

Third Rock from the Sun

This is one of my favorite shows.  I have all the seasons on DVD, and I'm watching a Third Rock marathon right now.  I've noticed a few odd things.

1. Did Sally pick her own body or was she forced to be 'the woman?'  At the beginning of the series Sally complains several times that they made her be the woman.  Then later they talk about picking their bodies from a catalog and they act like she wanted to be the woman.

2.  Dennis Rodman makes an appearance.  The famed basketball star runs into the gang at a hardware store.  When he sees them he calls them by name, but later it is stated that they chose their names on purpose to blend in.  Tom, Dick, and Harry.  Get it?

3.  Is Dick Canadian?  At one point they mention Dick is from Canada (at least that is what his papers say, the papers put together by Tommy), but at another point they are laughing about other people being from Canada.

4.  A fake high commander takes over and replaces the real high commander.  How does this guy know everything about the world and how it works when the rest of them had to learn?  Did someone make him a cheat sheet?

5.  Why do they forget what music and dancing are?  When they first arrive on Earth, a song is playing on the car radio and they are bopping along to it.  But later when Harry joins a CD club, they act stunned when they start dancing around the room and don't know what it is or why they are doing it.

6.  What happens after Nina finds the alien curling iron that vaporizes things?  She finds it at the end of one season, but there is no mention it at the beginning of the next.

There are more, but I can't think of them right now.  Is anyone else a fan of the show?
