David Vs Goliath
5 November 2013 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

Jack and the girls get bored of redecorating their house, so Watchdog, Jack Tripper heads to the Reagle Beagle with his roommates Janet & Crissy. They are bullied and harassed by a sailor of sorts, and Jack fails to stick up for himself, or the girls. Stanley and Helen Roper are there as well, and Stanley makes a fool out of Jack by warding off the bully. Stanley brags about warding off the bully, whilst Jack refuses to forgive himself for letting the girls down, and wants a shot at redemption. David Vs Goliath goes the comedic route, and I had a lot of fun with it. It's a good story about redemption and revenge, and how you should never be afraid to stick up for yourself. The Ropers are up to their usual antics. Stanley's not attracted to Helen, and a couple of Stanley's remarks towards her cracked me up. It was also a hoot to watch Stanley act all tough and smarmy after warding off the bully. There are some good gags from John Ritter, such as his tomfoolery with tacks. I didn't really care for the ending. Maybe I'm being a bit picky, but I wanted a bit of a better payoff. It does make sense, considering Jack's weasel like character, but I didn't care for how it went down. It's interesting to note that Ritter seemed to legitimately crack up Suzanne Sommers & Joyce DeWitt with his antics at the very end. I know genuine laughter when I see it, and that was genuine. Despite my small carp about the ending, I really enjoyed this episode. It's a great one, and Three's Company fans will love it

8.5/10
