Last episode of the Ropers
5 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the last episode of the Ropers, the spin off from Three's Company. The show never really could stand on its own by moving Stanley and Helen Roper out of Three's Company. This last episode deals with Helen's mother who visits her to provide details about how she is going to disburse her legacy through her will. Other members of her family arrive to also find out and compete with Helen. This episode also seemed to intentionally bring other minor and non-recurring cast members into the episode as a "swan song" on the premise of a party in the apartment. Jeffrey Tambor's role in this episode seemed very awkward and unfunny (he played an injured neighbor who was confined to a chair and being shuffled around). The series really lacked the comedic spark that was present in Three's Company. It went out with a whimper after one season. It's a bit ironic that the last episode deals with the subject of death which apparently included the series.
