If you watch one episode...
22 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

...make it "Upstairs, Downstairs, Upstairs." If you've never seen "Three's Company," one of my favorite shows of childhood, I can tell you that the show suffers with the passage of time. The pacing of most episodes is slow; the writing is sometimes painfully trite and contrived. Even some of the premises are dated. But the acting holds up, most notably that of John Ritter as Jack. Engaging, energetic, and sincere, with a charming innocence, Ritter WAS "Three's Company." And never was he funnier than in the wonderful episode "Upstairs, Downstairs, Upstairs"--the first episode of Season Five.

Similar to the finest "Cheers" episode "An Old-Fashioned Wedding," "Upstairs" plays like a French farce, moving along like a locomotive, with crisp writing and sharp performances, especially that of Ritter. And even though Suzanne Somers ("Chrissy") had begun her famed contract dispute, she did indeed appear in this episode, which means you'll see the REAL "Three's Company," because the show was never the same without her. In short, this episode plays like my memory of the show, which is quite a compliment. If you pick one episode of this show to watch, this should be it.
