THE GREATEST SITCOM EVER!!!
2 September 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I could go on all day long on what how this is the greatest sitcom ever, but I won't. I can truley say that I've watched Three's Company ever since I can remember and it is a sitcom that I don't think people can forget. It's sooooooooooo funny!!! It all started when two female roommates throw a party for their third female roommate who is moving out. The morning after the party, the two roommates(Janet and Chrissy)discover a drunk party guest(Jack)who accidently fell asleep in their bathtub. He tells them that he needs a place to live and they allow him to move in with them. However, he has to tell the landlord that he's gay in order to stay with them. So from then on comedy is born and is lived on all the way to the eighth and final season. Every episode is filled with laughter, romance(somewhat) and surprises. However, it is also hard to believe that Jack had never fallen in love with any of his roommates(paticularly Janet since she lived with him all eight years). I mean c'mon....didn't they ever try to score with eachother at some point? No matter what, this show will leave you in stitches.

Stars: Jack(The clumbsy yet funny chef) Janet(The cute-as-a-button brunette and florist) Chrissy(The dumb but funny blonde) Mr. and Mrs. Roper(The landlords who had as much sexual problems as any typical old folk) Larry(The single ladies' man)

WATCH ALL EPISODES!! I GIVE 10 OUT OF 10 STARS!!!! TRULEY A CLASSIC!!
