|BREAKING NEWS||[Nov. 21, 2018] SHOWSOTROS! Productions celebrates its 10 year anniversary!|
|Description||"Come And Knock On Our Door..."
In the spring of 1977, ABC Network executives gave a six-episode "trial" run to a new sitcom called THREE'S COMPANY. Almost overnight, it became one of the biggest hits of the entire season and more than twenty-five years later, it remains one of the best loved TV series of all time.
The beloved John Ritter stars as Jack Tripper (the that won him an EMMY®, a Golden Globe and the hearts of millions), the ever-bumbling bachelor who hares an apartment with down-to-earth Janet Wood (Joyce DeWitt) and dim-bulb blonde Chrissy Snow (Suzanne Somers). Along with their sexually frustrated landlords the Ropers (Norman Fell and Audra Lindley) and Jack's fast-talking pal Larry (Richard Kline), these three outrageous roommates tripped and jiggled through a world of slapstick pratfalls, sexy misunderstandings and some of the most scandalously titillating comedy America had ever seen.
THREE'S COMPANY - SEASON ONE features the original six episodes - including the classic pilot - that started it all now collected on DVD for the first time ever!
A Man About The House
And Mother Makes Four
No Children, No Dogs
Jack The Giant Killer
It's Only Money
Based upon the original series entitled "Man About The House" by Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke from Thames, a FremantleMedia Company.
Ep. 1: A Man About The House:
Brunette Janet, who works in florist shop, and Chrissy, a guileless blonde typist, find Jack asleep in their bathtub following a party for their ex-roommate. The two girls, who lack culinary skills, decide to share the apartment and expenses with Jack when they learn he is studying to be a gourmet chef. But first they have to find a way to overcome objections from their landlords, Stanley and Helen Roper, a romantically frustrated couple who live downstairs.
Ep. 2: And Mother Makes Four:
While Jack Tripper is moving in to share the apartment with Janet and Chrissy, Mrs. Snow, Chrissy's mother, phones to announce that she will be there in moments. Chrissy, whose father is a minister, panics at the news that her mother is coming. Janet is elected to take Jack to the local pub and keep him there until Mrs. Snow departs. As the evening lengthens, Chrissy's mom decides to spend the night.
Ep. 3: Roper's Niece:
When Mrs. Roper accuses Mr. Roper of showing his visiting niece Karen a boring time, Roper decides to introduce Karen to Jack. Meanwhile, Jack is organizing a birthday party for Janet. Later, Jack isn't on time for the party and Mr. Roper kicks him out of the apartment when he catches Karen and Jack kissing. Jack is saved when Karen admits she attacked him and he gives Janet a present bought with Roper's money.
Ep. 4: No Children, No Dogs:
When Jack brings home a puppy, roommates Janet and Chrissy remind him that landlord Stanley Roper doesn't allow pets on the premises. While the three tenants try to hide the puppy from Mr. Roper, Jack fails in attempts to give the little pooch away. Then Chrissy gets an idea when Mrs. Roper mentions that her husband will forget their approaching 20th wedding anniversary.
Ep. 5: Jack The Giant Killer:
While Janet, Chrissy and Jack are taking a break from chores at the Reagle Beagle pub, Jeff, a large chap, approaches their table to make a rude play for Chrissy. His size intimidates Jack. The situation becomes more embarrassing for Jack when the Ropers drop in and Roper, ill-tempered from a toothache, puts Jeff in his place. But Jack feels he may have acted cowardly trying to avoid a fight.
Ep. 6: It's Only Money:
Jack, Janet and Chrissy, believing a burglar has stolen their rent money, frantically try to avoid landlord Stanley Roper until they can replace it. After Jack and Janet find their apartment door unlocked and the cash missing, Chrissy arrives and insists that she left the envelope containing the rent money on the shelf. Jack calls the police. While the three roommates worry about trying to get a loan, Mrs. Roper convinces her husband to invite them out to dinner.

|Quoted Reviews||"It didn't set out to change the world. It just made us laugh and that is why we love it." — Lucille Ball, 1982|
"During the pilot episode, Jack says: 'Well, you know you have to learn to trot before you can gallop... who said that?' and the audience laughs. This was John Ritter's way of paying homage to his late father, Tex Ritter."
"Are you sure it was a man, not a woman? They all look alike nowadays."
- Mr. Roper
