Stanley and Helen Roper, the beloved landlords from "Three's Company," have sold their apartment complex and moved into a new one. Their trademark quirks are intact as they deal with new neighbors and frequent visits from Helen's sister. Written by
I don't know why ABC wanted the Ropers spun off into their own sitcom. They were crucial to the success of Three's Company. They were succeeded by the amazing Don Knott as Mr. Furley. Anyway, this show wasn't the greatest or the worst television that I ever saw but I did enjoy watching the Ropers try to settle and deal with Jeffrey Tambor's snobbish character and neighbor. Helen and Stanley Roper will always be better known for their roles as the nosy landlords downstairs who were suspicious of Jack Tripper's sexual orientation. How ironic? Anyway, the Ropers only lasted a season which was just too short. The audience loved the Ropers and they could have returned as tenants on Three's Company after not lasting in their own series. Regardless, Norman Fell and Audra Lindley as the Ropers left quite a legacy in television history that won't be forgotten. Too bad, it didn't last longer in their own show. I don't think ABC gave it a fair chance.
