Great special concerning the Hit Show!!!

This special by E is about as complete as you will get to what really happened on and off the show.

First before I comment on this, I would to point out that I personally though "Three's A Crowd" was good. It was funny, and racy at times, but always made you laugh. Also personally I did not want to see a relationship between Jack and Janet develop.

Janet (Joyce Dewitt) must audiences will say was the most annoying out of all the roommates in "Three's Company" (She often received the butt of the joke) She neither had the sexual appeal that the other's had.

Now this special tells you how the show started, how ABC wanted to cancel it (because of some of the sex innuendo's) , Suzanne Somers, kid tantrums, and how she laughingly wanted to be the highest cast member of the show.

This is probably the most funniest part of the show, because Summers was no doubt hard hired for her looks and had zip, zilch nada talent.

She was eventually fired from the show, but this crybaby went as far as suing the show!!!

LOL. Give me a minute to laugh that one off.

The show also reveals the great laughs the cast had on the show.

It also reveals how Joyce Dewitt was jealous of John Ritter's success by the end of the show.

Ritter (playing the same role for 7 yrs old) was getting tired of the show, but Joyce wanted it to go on further (of course she had no talent whatsoever).

The show finished, but Dewitt still felt bitter about the exit and Ritter's decision to not continue the show. LOL

This special also has one of the last interviews with Mr. Ropper (The great Normal Fell), and Mr. Furely (Don Knotts) before Fell died.

Overall this is a must see, for anyone wishing to learn what really went on "Three's Company".
