1 What I don't get is....WHY does Antenna TV continue to show this and that other LAME Three's Company spin-off "Three's A Crowd"? Time was it was very rare for a show to get a 2nd life in ruruns without at least being renewed for a 2nd season, and that's ORIGINAL shows. Spin-offs that last less than one season deserve syndicated re-runs even less, because they had some semblance of a core audience going in yet STILL failed. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 4:34 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Stanley and Helen should have stayed landlords, instead of becoming chum by starring in a lame spinoff -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on December 27, 2011, 7:42 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Mythigator, Way back in the late 1950's, during the last days of "I Love Lucy", the Arnazes and CBS wanted to spin off the Mertzes into their OWN series but Vivian Vance REFUSED even for extra monies because she didn't want to chance bedroom scenes with Bill Frawley (and did her best to avoid getting too close to him in the original series- the two somewhat detested each other). Anyway, consider this series a 70's version of how THAT show might have gone had Vance been willing to tolerate bedroom scenes with Frawley. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 5, 2010, 9:33 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 It's not a good sign when the coolest thing about the show is the theme music! The Ropers were great characters on Three's Company, but (as others have said), they just didn't have the stuff to carry their own show. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 5, 2010, 6:35 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 They just weren't funny enough to carry their own show. -- Submitted By: (PrinceJ) on August 4, 2010, 7:09 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 The characters were a mildly amusing side gag on Three's Company (even though it was always the same shtick with them every week), but even as a kid, I knew these characters were not strong enough to carry their own show. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 14, 2010, 10:09 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
