May John Ritter rest in peace - his TV legacy will live fore
JGC | 03/15/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"John Ritter (may he rest in peace) was the star of "Three's Company." He was always such a perfect comic actor because both his slapstick and deadpan expressions could make even the most serious viewer laugh hysterically. Jack has always been my very favorite character of this series. And even though Mr. Ritter has passed away way too soon his legacy will live forever.
I used to watch the repeats of "Three's Company" as a little child and I always felt like I was watching a "grown up show." Twenty years later it doesn't seem "risque" or sexually charged like most primteime (and unimaginative) sitcoms are today. However, "Three's Company" was a pioneer in the sexual revolution of modern American television, because they were able to push the envelop of submission just a little further each week. But it is also a very funny, classic, sitcom that the entire family can watch. It is unfortunate that "Three's Company" never really got the respect it deserved. Although Jenilee Harrison and Priscilla Barnes are excellent, it is also unfortunate that by the 6th season Suzanne Somers was long gone.
There are a total of TWENTY-SEVEN episodes from Season 6!!

The Debut of Terri Alden
Andre LeBlanc | North Dakota | 03/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I've always loved Three's Company for its ability to replace characters and still remain entertaining and memorable. As popular as Suzanne Somers was on the show, I always enjoyed Priscilla Barnes more. Terri Alden is every bit as attractive as Chrissy Snow and much more intelligent. It's a shame Priscilla Barnes was not happy with her experience on this show, because she truly made this season special. Don Knotts, John Ritter, and Joyce DeWitt continue to deliver wonderful performances as Mr. Furley, Jack, and Janet. Several reviewers have said this was one of the best seasons of Three's Company. I agree with them completely."
Priscilla Barnes Saves Show From Cancellation
Perry R. Johnson | Atlanta, Ga. | 01/11/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Underestimated Priscilla Barnes saves show from cancellation. If you look at the first few shows, you will see that Priscilla Barnes has a stronger part in Three's Company than in the later seasons and episodes. Why? I didn't know why until I saw the special E years later. Priscilla Barnes was not happy with the producers and wanted out of the show. Instead of having a public fiasco like Miss Suzanne Somers did, Barnes decided to honor her contract. However, Barnes' part became less substantial in the last two seasons due to: Number one, Barnes unhappiness with show and Number two, Barnes' producers unhappiness with Barnes. According to Barnes' interview, the producers reduced her salary for not offering to renew her contract when it expires. As a result, the show lost its magic in seasons 7 and 8. Sexy Priscilla Barnes became third party to John Ritter and Joyce Dewitt. However, Priscilla Barnes was the Marilyn Monroe who saved the series. The best episodes were the first ones when Jack has to go to the hospital and meets Terri, who he likes, and she rejects him. Then later, he rejects her and humuliates her in public when there is a threat she will become his new roommate due to Janet's liking. Also, we have the episode where Terri thinks Jack is a hustler. Other highlights, Jack sees a robber, Terri brings home a date, who Jack and Janet thinks came from a mental hospital, the Lucille Ball special, one of her last appearances, hosts the one hour retrospective of the last 6 years of Three's Company. This is a great season. I can only thank the talented, sexy, Priscilla Barnes. I love Suzanne Somers but like Priscilla Barnes almost as much. If Priscilla Barnes didn't have the war with her producers, the ill-fated "Three's A Crowd" would never have transpired. John Ritter wanted a new show, Priscilla Barnes wanted out, and only poor Joyce Dewitt wanted the show to continue. Enjoy this dvd set because it is the best one after Somers but declines afterwards."

"The 1981-82 season,the sixth for Three's Company,began a little later than usual due to a writers' strike. Fortunately,the strike didn't last as long as the actors' strike that delayed the beginning of the previous season. Suzanne Somers,one of the original TC cast,was officially fired after 1980-81 although Jennilee Harrison filled Somers' shoes as the roommate of Jack Tripper(the late John Ritter) and Janet Wood(Joyce DeWitt) in the middle of that season. In 1981-82,Cindy Snow,Chrissy's beautiful but clumsy cousin played by Harrison,moved out of apartment 201 to study veterinary medicine at UCLA(University of California at Los Angeles). So Jack and Janet throw her a farewell party. Guests included upstairs neighbor Larry Dallas(Richard Kline),landlord Ralph Furley(Don Knotts),and Jack's and Janet's not-yet-moved-in roommate Terri Alden(Priscilla Barnes). Also Jack went back to work at Angelino's Restaurant(he was fired after one shift under a different name in the previous season). Jack rejoined his boss Frank Angelino(Jordan Charney,playing the role recurringly) and Felipe Gomez(Gino Conforti,also playing the role recurringly). Jack injured his finger in Angelino's kitchen and was sent to Wilshire Memorial Hospital. He was placed under the care of a beautiful nurse who gives him a tetanus shot. Here's where Jack and Terri meet. Terri is that nurse. At first,Jack didn't want to be roommates with Terri after how she treated him. But Jack changes his mind at the party. Cindy regularly visited apartment 201 when she wasn't at UCLA. Here's what else we see this season: When Terri moves in,her parents and sister drop by to see the apartment. Also,she tries to perform as best she could on her violin(she was studying the instrument). I thought it sounded awful! Janet almost becomes a professional dancer(she quit working at Arcade Florists and later came back). She was sexually harrassed by her male instructor. The trio spend the weekend at Cindy's aunt's farm. Terri on a dinner date with a co-worker,a psychiatrist who Jack and Janet thought was a "looney bin" patient. Jack ends up in jail because he unknowingly set a wanted criminal free. Jack serenades a southern belle with the aid of Larry and two guitars. Jack's healthy grandfather,who Jack thought was terminally ill,visits the trio and Wilshire for treatment from Jack(the grandfather thought Jack was an M.D.). Also there's a two-part retrospective entitled "The Best of Three's Company",hosted by the late Lucille Ball. We also see Ritter and Ball meeting. Ritter was a longtime admirer of the star of the 1950's sitcom I LOVE LUCY. After this season,Harrison was written out and her character was never mentioned again. I dedicate this item to the memory of Ritter(September 17,1948-September 11,2003)."
