Throwback Thursday – Three’s Company [VIDEO]
The show ran for eight seasons from 1977 to 1984 and revolved around the misadventures of three roommates, two girls and one guy, living platonically in California.
The show launched the careers of John Ritter, Suzanne Somers, and Joyce DeWitt, and featured veteran actors Norman Fell and Audra Lindley as the landlords the Ropers who lived in the apartment on the first floor.
The idea of co-ed living partners was still kind of controversial, the story line had Jack Tripper pretend he was gay so that the Ropers would let him move in with the two other Girls, Chrissy and Janet
Suzanne Somers, who had become a sex symbol on the show, left the series after season five, and was replaced by new characters twice, with Jenilee Harrison in seasons 5 and 6, and Priscilla Barnes in seasons 7 and 8.
I loved the way Norman Fell's character Mr Roper would look directly into the camera when he said one of his humorous punchlines.
The Ropers also left form a spin off after season three and was replaced by veteran actor Don Knotts as Mr Furley, the bumbling 'Barney Fife' like building super.
Don Knotts really saved the show in the later seasons, and John Ritter who along with Joyce DeWitt were the only original cast members to complete the series.
