User Reviews

One of the best comedies of all time.
9 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

Three's Company has held up so well over the years. I know it's not like it was on fifty years ago or anything like that. What I mean is that the story lines and problems for each episode are just as funny during each viewing.

The actors are amazing. Suzanne Somers, who was given way too much credit for her portrayal of Chrissy Snow, gives a good performance as the always ditzy blond. Joyce DeWitt, who wasn't given enough exposure to, keeps me laughing with her serious but not too serious character of Janet Wood. John Ritter, one of the funniest TV characters/actors I have ever watched, is probably the best thing about this show.

I'll admit that some of the episodes and problems they run into are stretched to the point where it becomes ridiculous only because they aren't funny. And while the audience keeps on cracking up, I find myself saying 'come on, get serious.'

The writers of Three's Company deserve a lot of praise and credit to. After all, they are who made this show what it is. I think that the writing is very creative with bits of hysterical comments thrown in at the most unexpected times or sequences. Everything that the crew put in and not so much the actors, are excellent.

One thing that is kind of wrong but good at the same time, was the change of landlords. The Ropers (Lindley and Fell) acted well together as the disgusted married couple. It goes a little too far to where the same joke or comment made by Mrs. Roper can be told and still be laughed at. The cancellation of The Ropers and the Ropers on Three's Company was a change that took some time to get used to. Fortunately, the humorous Don Knotts stepped in. All three of the landlords added a special something to the show that kept/keeps us laughing.

Everything from the tiniest mishaps to that groovy theme song, is what made this show stay on the air for so long. Not a huge amount of time, but long enough. Thanks to Nick at Nite, I have the opportunity to watch this hilarious show twice every night. The majority of the time, I will end up missing it but it's nice to know that an older show as good as this one can still be seen.
