A man's gotta do, what a man's gotta do
6 November 2013 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

The gang sets some ground rules, because they keep walking in one another's dates. They realize their dates will have trouble believing the relationships are platonic, so Jack proposes that they give 24 hours notice if they want the place to themselves. Everyone agrees, and everything seems grand, but when Jack gets interested in a girl named Veronica he might think twice about the rule he came up with. Season two started off with a bang! I dare you not to laugh during this one. It's impossible. I noticed the opening for The Three's Company song & credits is quite a bit longer than the one in season one. It doesn't end as quickly, and I actually kind of liked it. You can tell it's been a few months as well. Janet's hair is longer, and Crissy has aged ever so slightly (In the best way possible). Mr. Roper still believes Jack's facade, being that Jack is gay. There is one scene involving Jack & Stanley Roper which is an absolute scream. Jack is trying to make a point to Crissy at the Reagle Beagle, and asks what they would do if he came home with boyfriends. Stanley's reaction is absolutely hysterical, and you can tell John Ritter is trying to keep his composure by not laughing. It's classic stuff. I do question how someone could pick a relatively plain chick like Veronica (Jennifer Shaw) over somebody as drop dead gorgeous like Crissy was, but that's just me. The ending is one of my favorites in the entire series, and it involves The Ropers. Let's just say, Helen finally gets what she's been clamoring for. Overall, if you haven't seen it, what are you waiting for? Go see it. Not only is it hilarious, but it proves how difficult living with a roommate can be, especially two girls and a guy
