Interesting

Author: genedurham from Somewhere
9 January 2001

This is an interesting comedy I'm willing to watch. It isn't the funniest thing I've seen, but it is definitely better than most of the comedies NBC has churned out. It is worth a try and hopefully NBC won't go on another cancelling frenzy in the near future. In my opinion this show is worth your time. There are a few laughs.

Liked it, trying for find copies of it!

7/10

It was a cute show that in the tradition of shows like "Wings" and "Yes, Dear!" really should have lasted a little longer. Diane Cannon was great and some of the story lines were very pertinent. David Alan Basche played perfectly against Vicki Lewis' dry wit and A.J. Langer's quirkiness. The second seasons addition of Paul Hipp, as Elliott, and Brian Scolaro, as Gordon, were a good touch. Vicki Lewis' story line with Elliott brought a great dimension to the lighter story lines. Also, the "Playboy Bunnies Reunion" episode, has plenty of merit!

I'm sorry it didn't last. I've got a few episodes still on tape, but I would like them all! I'd like to know if anyone out there has any copies that can be posted.

Painful

Author: Jordan-36 (ugtheatre@hotmail.com) from Richardson, TX

Oh, what pain the delusions of NBC programmers have let loose upon the airwaves! With an unearned tip of the hat to Austen and Chekhov, Three Sisters deals with the weekly adventures of boring Steven who marries even more boring Bess and, as part of the package, ends up literally living with her obnoxious sisters -- caustic Nora and flighty Annie. In an attempt to make this show something more than a shallow midseason replacement, each show is blandly narrated by Steven. As his narration seems to consist mostly of self-centered whining and tritely predictable insights, watching this show soon becomes the equivalent of getting cornered by a really boring drunk at the neighborhood bar.

Where do these unfunny "comedy" programmes end up?

1/10
Author: ClearThinker from United Kingdom
24 June 2006

This show has to be one of the worst I have seen, with dreadful acting and VERY poor scripts. So where do shows like this end up? unfortunately these shows never actually die, they are sold to cable networks and satellite in UK. They will buy any old rubbish just to fill out their schedules of repeats, and fill in the gaps between the endless re-runs of MASH! If you want to see comedy on your screens make sure that this is one that you avoid. We use comedy programmes to cheer ourselves up, yet this programme will only have you tearing your hair out in frustration.

Comedy writers should loom back at all the classic comedies of the past .... but not steal their material!

A terrible show that should be yanked.

Author: wynkerts from Boston, MA
18 December 2001

Three Sisters is a very poorly written 'comedy', that hopefully will be canceled very soon. I'd say it's another Suddenly Susan, so terrible is the show! The show has tired gags that try for attention, uses sex for humor as many bad comedies do, and features a very unattractive cast. I'll excuse the narrator and maybe Bonerz. Why is this show still on? I know people who actually get angry if they see it while channel surfing.
