"I have all three of the series of Two's Company.. I love the fun that these two characters have with one another.. Their banter and repartee is what makes it so much fun.. These two actors are good in their own right, but together they are extra special.. I watch them often and get such a kick out of their play.. I would recommend it to anyone that loves the British humor and a Brassy lady from the stage..Elaine Stritch is still going strong even after all these years.It is nice to see her appear with her late husband playing her cousin in series number two "A Loving Christmas". Two's Company has weathered the years nicely... Kudos to all involved..C. F. Marsh"
Even better than the first two seasons!

"American thriller author, Dorothy McNab (ably played by Elaine Stritch) has come to England to enjoy a slower place of life. Overall, it doesn't live up to her expectations, but at least (unlike Europe) people speak "American." But, she does need a butler to run her house for her. Who should walk through her door, but Robert (Donald Sinden), an extremely capable butler with a profound sense of superiority towards upstart colonials? The fur flies, and hilarity ensues as this unlike pair set up house together.
This is a great British comedy - one of my favorites, and my wife's all-time favorite! As a matter of fact, not long after we were first married, PBS began airing this great show, and I used it to introduce my bride to the joys of British humor (that is to say, "humour"). Overall, we found this to be a lot of fun, and enjoy watching it over and over again. So, if you want to see a fun and entertaining Britcom, then I highly recommend that you get this DVD. It's great!
By the way, this DVD includes all eight of the episodes from the third (1978) series. I must say, the third season is even better than the first two, and I can hardly wait for the fourth season to be released! The eight episodes included on this DVD are:
The Invitation - 22 January 1978 - When Dorothy is invited to tea with the Queen, Robert becomes so full of himself that he proves to be more of a hindrance than a help!
The Freezer - 29 January 1978 - Dorothy wants a freezer so that she can make herself a frozen pizza every once in a while, but Robert will not hear of such a travesty occurring in his kitchen. Who will come out the winner?
The Pet - 5 February 1978 - While out on a walk, Dorothy finds a cute little dog that simply steals her heart away. Robert does not approve of dogs, and begins to lay his plans.
The Take-Over Bid - 12 February 1978 - Dorothy has a temporary chauffeur who begins to set his sites on Robert's job. But, will Robert go quietly off into the unemployment queue?
The Virus - 19 February 1978 - When Dorothy gets sick, it's bad enough, but when Robert gets sick he turns into the most miserable patient on earth!
The Critic - 26 February 1978 - A scalding review of Dorothy's thrillers appears in the paper, attracting a great deal of attention. Now, who would write such a review?
The Picnic - 5 March 1978 - It's Dorothy's birthday, and Robert has decided to present her with a picnic in the English countryside. But, when a couple of Dorothy's old friends drop in all Robert's plans are thrown into turmoil.
The Politicians - 26 March 1978 - When Dorothy gets together with two MPs to discuss her idea for a hostel for young American authors living in Britain Robert takes an immediate dislike to one. Can Dorothy keep Robert off their back, and ram her idea through Parliament? Don't count on it!
Another superb and funny series!!

"Although one has to have a taste for Elaine's straight-forward humor, this dvd set, the third in the series, has some truly funny moments. I wish someone would release "Open All Hours" on dvd, one of Britain's best comedies."
