The success of this show led to two highly successful spin-off series for Thames/ITV: Robins Nest (1977) as Robin starts his own restaurant with his live-in girlfiend (Tessa Wyatt) and George and Mildred (1976) with Brian Murphy and Yootha Joyce, where the Roper's move to a new upmarket area.

The one thing the Brits know about television is knowing when to stop. This show did more with 39 episodes (& one movie) than Three's Company did with 172 episodes. While it does leave you wanting for more, I'd rather have a few excellent shows than dozens of mediocre or downright horrible ones. Hollywood should take a lesson here.
Richard was a likable bloke and the girls were cute and charming. The Ropers were much funnier than their American counterparts. I liked the fact that they dismissed the whole "Robin is gay" thing almost immediately.
If you've never seen this show, you owe to yourself to check it out.
