TV Shows - Three's Company

Three's Company is an American sitcom that aired from 1977 to 1984 on ABC. It is a remake of the British sitcom Man About the House. The story revolves around three roommates, Janet Wood, Chrissy Snow (later Cindy Snow and Terri Alden), and Jack Tripper who share Apartment 201 in a Santa Monica apartment building owned by Mr. and Mrs. Roper (later owned by Bart Furley but managed by his brother, Ralph Furley). The show chronicles the escapades of the trio's constant misunderstandings, social lives, and struggle to keep up with rent.

1 It also didn't hurt that somehow, some way, Priscilla Barnes's nipples would always manage to be seen no matter what she was wearing :-) Seriously, you'd see those things almost every show she was in. It was no accident, everyone involved knew *exactly* what they were doing. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on August 20, 2014, 3:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Three's Company never was, isn't, and never should be considered a source of highbrow humor. The show was obviously far more inclined toward slapstick humor and double-entendre, and for the most part, it worked quite well. However, the episodes with Jenilee Harrison pushed the slapstick angle so hard it just became ludicrous. Cindy's klutziness got real old REAL fast. For that reason, to cite "Chrissy leaves" as the BTF point is a fair statement as far as it goes. To really be fair, though, you'd have to say that while the show boned when Chrissy left, it de-boned when Terri arrived and Cindy started being phased out. Once Terri's character was established and Cindy was gone, it seemed like the show had found its way again. Also, as ParkerTillman alluded, it certainly didn't hurt that Priscilla Barnes was far hotter than Somers or Harrison! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 5, 2014, 12:20 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Having saw the original pilot episode when it aired back in 1977, I voted "Day 1" and am proud of it. Never got into this show (despite the fact that my wife loves it; she also likes "Full House," too, so go figure). No one could act their way out of a wet paper bag, the jokes (or mostly double entendres) weren't even funny in the '70s and the supporting cast (Larry, the Ropers, Furley) were miserable. "Come and knock on my door"? I don't think so. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 23, 2014, 11:54 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I loved this show from the start. I don't see how there are so many votes saying the show boned when Chrissy left. I was GLAD when she left. She was annoying. I thought Terri was awesome, and the show was even better with her. Rest in peace Jack Tripper. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 5:12 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I couldn't bring myself to vote "Chrissy leaves". I voted "Never Boned". For one thing, I found her replacement, Priscilla Barnes, to be infinitely more attractive (and versatile; check out some of her porn scenes that are available on line). For another, Suzanne Sommers' and her idiot husband's egos had grown so huge I found myself almost glad when she quit and the "ordeal" was finally over. Consider that this unfolded during my teenage years in "real time" and without the internet or gazillion channels as a diversion, Suzanne's whining got old real fast. The episodes with Jennilee Harrison, where Chrissy's only in the last two minutes talking to Janet on the phone, just to make her earn her "credit", were so obviously being done to work around the hatred Suzanne had spawned on the set from her co-stars that the believability factor was in the toilet. They should have left that out and let her have her stinking credit. I still want those minutes back. The choice ultimately became either "cancel the show" or "fire Suzanne and get someone else in here". I think they made the right choice. Priscilla was very sexy, and let's face it, John Ritter was the REAL STAR of this show. If it was him having problems, I'd say cancel it, because he was a talented actor who did physical comedy well. Suzanne Sommers? She was glorified eye candy and not much more. Not much of an actress either IMO. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 28, 2012, 2:34 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I remember this show from when I lived with my parents. When I read the TV Guide listing aloud after someone asked what was on I could distinctly remember certain shows that elicited moans and groans from all present - "is anything else on?" Sometimes to the extent that you felt like replying,"don't blame me" it's not my fault. When nothing was on but "Three's Company" it was either time to take a bath or go to bed or both. Even in reruns it still amounts to that only without my parents echoing the same sentiments. For the rare occasions when there literally is nothing else on I beganto notice exactly what is wrong with this show. Aside from the fact nobody has any talent unless you count Suzanne Somers dumb blond act (?) I've figured it out. TC scripts consists almost entirely of recycled comedy cliches; the same basic ideas have been done since the days of "I Love Lucy" (which is even better than this crap). 1)The Miscommunication - One person misunderstands something he has heard from another room (or party line in the good ole days)and spends the next 30 minutes acting accordingly; thinking someone is pregnant, dying, engaged, gay or a hardened criminal etc. The idea here is that at the end eveyone will learn not to jump to conclusions and not to eaves drop. 2) Do Me A Favor? - One person does the other a favor by pretending to be something they're not - i.e. lover, date, teacher, spouse, etc. It ends with the pretense being exposed and everybody is forgiven since eveybody meant well and we learn that honesty is the best policy etc. 3)Believe it or not since I never really enjoyed this show that actually about covers it. All of these ideas have been seen and done a thousand times in other better sitcoms. Even "The Flintstones" has more credibility. TC recycled them shamelessly - the whole show is based around Jack pretending to be gay - we know Jack is pretending because he flirts with Janet and Chrissy. Essentially there is nothing funny, original or even likeable about this show. It's most redeeming quality is Suzanne Somer's T&A. That's not a complaint but I have her in Playboy so I don't really need this. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on December 31, 2010, 5:21 am - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote
7 This was one of those shows that you watched which fell under the category of "Nothing Else On" As kids we had our tv in the living room and generally we had little or no difficulty deciding what to watch but this was always greeted with the same "see of there's something else on" attitude. I can see why because in reruns it amounts to the same thing. None of the actors really has much talent if you ask me, although Suzanne Somers has a great body and has the dumb blonde act down cold. The real problem here is the lousy script. Every episode has one of those stories that you've heard somewhere before about somebody misunderstood what another said, or one character tells a little white lie to fool somebody and the others get dragged into it. Example: the recent Christmas epsiode -Jack and girls are invited to a party with the Ropers but are too afraid to hurt their feelings by telling the Ropers that they were invited to another party and that the Ropers are know for boring parties. Jack and friends try to figure a way to get out of going except for the most obvious and then pretend to have a good time to fool the Ropers; ironically the Ropers are afraid to tell Jack and the girls that they also have been invited to another party and that the Ropers find Jack and the girls to be boring. When, everybody gets to leave the Ropers party they discover that they all have been invited to the same party and that the Stevens family just forgot to deliver their invitations. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on December 31, 2010, 4:46 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

9 I voted "Never Boned" because I would honestly rather watch an episode of this for the 10th time than most of the current dreck on TV. I know it's trite and formulaic and banal, and it's STILL better. Fletch, you've gotta understand that 30 years ago, chicks had lower standards. You didn't have to have six pack abs, blindingly white teeth, etc. just to get a date. By late 70s/early 80s standards, Jack Tripper *was* a chick magnet. As for the Chrissy character, she was okay the first few episodes but then was made dumber and dumber until finally all suspension of disbelief was shattered since by the end of the second season Chrissy would've literally been too stupid to live. Then Cindy was a one-note klutz (she accidentally injures Jack yet again with her clumsiness, I get it already). I actually liked Teri the best of the rotating roommates, and it's not even close. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on February 12, 2010, 12:30 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Hey maybe it's just me, but I could not conceptualize John Ritter as a girl magnet, not where I come from. I think he was way too effeminate even when he wasn't trying to be. The show was boned from the start. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 8, 2010, 10:05 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
