One morning after a particularly wild party, Chrissy and Jo wake up to find Robin sleeping in their bath. He needs a place to live, they need a flatmate that can cook, so they decide to let him live with them. Robin is convinced he's in with a chance with both of them, but he never seems to quite manage to impress either woman enough to get them to go out with him!

The success of this show led to two highly successful spin-off series for Thames/ITV: Robins Nest (1977) as Robin starts his own restaurant with his live-in girlfiend (Tessa Wyatt) and George and Mildred (1976) with Brian Murphy and Yootha Joyce, where the Roper's move to a new upmarket area.

Now the series is 30 years old but it is still funny. I saw it when I was a child and I can still recall the laughters at home. It was the first British tv series thet topped the tv rankings in Spain. And even now, people remember it. Two different situations: upstairs the 3 flat mates, and downstairs the landlord and his wife. The scripts were terrific: both situations fixed perfectly. And what about the actors? all of them were absolutely brilliant, specially my dear Mrs Roper. Oh, yes. Americans made a "remake" that was OK when they copied word by word the original episodes. When they had to create new scripts it became awful and boring. By the way, I always recommend to see any show in its original version, but I must confess that Spanish dubbed version is as good as the original one.
